Had the pleasure of staying here on New years eve amazing service and company. Would most definitely stay here and would recommend it to anyone who finds themselves looking for a place to stay. Next time I'm down I'll be looking to stay here.

Very comfortable stay in a very good B&B. Tony and Janine are great hosts. Breakfast fantastic with fresh fruit, homemade marmalade and locally sourced sausage and eggs. Room very comfortable. Parking permits were provided (£1 per day) which allowed free parking around the local area as well as outside the B&B. Looking forward to visiting again next year!

We were here while attending a conference across the road and were very happy to be staying here. Our room (no 8) was large, comfortable, beautifully finished and very clean. The breakfast was delicious, lovely full English and the granola and marmalade were just gorgeous. We bought some to take away with us. The owners and staff were warm, friendly... More

He carried our bags to our rooms and explained everything to us. Our beds were comfortable and bathroom a good size. Breakfast is the true gem, with hot food... More

This is a delightful, family-run hotel yards from the sea front, and in the middle of the cultural centre of Eastbourne. We had a great welcome from Turkish, the family dog who checked us out and deemed us suitable (ha ha). The other humans involved, Tony, Janine and the Team, are also wonderful hosts! Our room was excellent and warm,... More

We are just back from a two night stay at this hotel. A good location within easy reach of the town centre, seafront and theatres. Very comfortable and well equipped rooms. Breakfast excellent with plenty of choice. When we visit Eastbourne again we will definitely stay in this hotel.

The square in which hotel is located is very close to the sea front and within walking distance of theatre, gallery and decent restaurants. We were met on the doorstep by our host who carried my suitcase up several floors to the top of the hotel. The host was very good at providing advice about where to east, what route... More

We have stayed in Eastbourne many times over the last forty years, and love it's facilities. 17 Wilmington Square is ideally situated for so many of them! The beach - near the Lifeguard protected section. The town centre - a few minutes' walk away. The theatres - just down the road. The Tennis Centre - equally near. And at the... More

17 Wilmington Square is perfectly located, virtually on the sea front in one direction and a ten minute stroll to the town centre in the other. Staff here, particularly at breakfast, were lovely, smiling and friendly. Breakfast consisted of cereals and fruit, plus cooked breakfasts made to order. The food was fresh and delicious. My bedroom and the public areas... More
