We spent this bank holiday weekend at this B & B and would like to thank Tony and Janine (plus the waitress/chambermaid) for a pleasant stay. Would highly recommend staying here as very warm welcome and breakfast was really good. Nice clean rooms and lovely and peaceful. We chose this firstly because we was attending the congress theatre and it... More

This was our second trip to this lovely seaside B&B. We stayed for the Airbourne air show, so we knew this was in the ideal location. It's easy walking distance to the beach, restaurants & pubs. We very much enjoyed the air show display, had a lovely restaurant meal, and topped off the evening by watching the the fantastic fireworks... More

We spent a couple of nights here in high season with beautiful weather, but although the resort was busy it was calm and quiet here. We had a well appointed room at the back, so avoided noise from traffic; revellers tend to be at the other end of the Prom. The broadband was reliable, a nice change from so many... More

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
