This is a delightful B&B. The hosts, Tony & Janine, are very welcoming and hospitable and provide a lovely relaxed atmosphere. There is a pleasant guest lounge and the hearty 'full' English breakfast is served in the separate dining room. The beach/seafront are just a few steps away and access to Eastbourne's attractions and shopping centre are easily reached on... More

This was our first visit to 17 Wilmington Square hotel and it certainly won't be our last. The hosts Janine and Tony were fantastic from the moment we arrived to waving us goodbye :-) The rooms are bright and airy and have everything you need, and are cleaned to perfection. The location is perfect being just around the corner from... More

This was our third visit to 17 and was excellent yet again. Last time we had a room near the top which involved a few too many stairs for me, but this time we returned to room 5 overlooking the square and with a sea view. Janine, Tony, Turkish, Cheryl and the lovely blonde lady whose name I missed. made... More

17 Wilmington square has it all. Location with sea views, close to promenade, theatres, shops. Lovely hosts who always make me feel at home. Rooms and beds very comfy and tastefully furnished. Always a joy to come here.

Back for our annual stay at number 17, the reason we return to Eastbourne. Homemade muesli, fresh fruit and the best full English for breakfast. Ask Janine and Tony for a recommendation for lunch or an evening meal and they have their finger on the pulse of all the established and up and coming restaurants and pubs in the area,... More

We have just spent a very pleasant weekend in Eastbourne. We only spent one night at 17 Wilmington Square, and picked this particular B&B due to the good reports that we had read on Trip Advisor, especially the good reviews re the breakfast. We were very happy with our choice. Good location for exploring the town/restaurants etc, and great location... More

Hard to decide if it's the location, the lovely Regency building, the really fantastic freshly-cooked breakfast or the very warm welcome from Tony, Janine, Turkish and their team which makes 17 Wilmington Square. I almost don't want to give a good review to make sure I can always get a room!

The B&B is a lovely Regency? house with wonderfully high ceilings and original features. The rooms were superb, with sea views, beautifully furnished and with en suite bathrooms.The bed was superbly... More
