Stayed one night here for work in July 2014. The room was quiet and comfortable, the location close to the beach and not far from the town centre could not be faulted, and the hosts were extremely friendly and went out of their way to make me feel welcome. All of that and an excellent breakfast too, after sleeping like... More

Went for a long weekend away with an old college friend. Rather a steep climb to room 11, a few floors up! (But good exercise and our bags were taken up for us). A wonderful welcome, however from Janine and Turkish - nothing was too much trouble. My friend thought she had lost a ring and they went through our... More

What a find! We were in Eastbourne for a family funeral and needed to stay with our Labradoodle Ruby. We booked a two night stay at 17 for Thursday and Friday nights. Janine and Turkish welcomed us at the door and showed us to a beautiful room overlooking the square with a sea-view. The room was beautifully decorated and was... More

We spent 3 days here over Easter and found it lived up to our expectations in all respects. Janine and Tony run an excellent B & B in a very convenient location. Our room, not one with a sea view as we booked rather late, was very comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was first class with plenty of choice... More

We have just had a wonderful weekend here and the hospitality and welcome we received was great. 17 Wilmington Square is spotlessly clean. Our room had a lovely comfy bed and all the facilities needed. Breakfast was superb with excellent hospitality. Thank you Janine, Tony and all the team for a wonderful stay. We will definitely be returning as we... More

This lovely old house in the Devonshire Park area of Eastbourne was spotlessly clean, very well looked after and of a high standard. The breakfast was excellent with a lovely selection of fresh fruit, yoghurt and cereal, followed by a large plate of full English. The owners even went to the trouble of supplying gluten free bread for me as... More

This establishment is equal to the best places I've stayed in. It's a fairly small guest house offering the quality of service normally only found in the best hotels. Prices are reasonable. The rooms are a good size, spotlessly clean with nice fluffy towels and crisp bed-linen. Breakfast is as good as the best anywhere. Car parking is convenient and... More

On arrival at number 17 on Friday 21st March with a party of 8 friends and family we were made to feel welcome immediately; in fact Tony and Janine made you feel you were meeting up with old friends. The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable and as for breakfast it was out of this world. The cooked breakfast set... More
