Just spent 8 days at 17 Wilmington Square in a beautifully appointed sea view room, quality furnishings and decor - massive windows providing a wonderful view. Quiet too with no noise from outside or from fellow guests. Spotlessly clean and run by the most friendly family Janine, Tony & Co whose sole aim appears to be to make their guests... More

I have stayed at 'seventeen' four times now, and it does not disappoint. Despite personal adversity, Janine has kept the standards high. The breakfast selection is one that will leave you wishing you had room for more.

We booked 17 Wilmington Sq having read the great reviews. The B&B is very conveniently located for town and the seafront and our room was pretty clean. The bathroom was only ok. Also I expected better/more toiletries for a 4* place but there was only a small shampoo and small shower gel, which wasn't replaced when our room was cleaned... More

Stayed for 2 nights with our 2 dogs over August Bank Holiday. We received a warm welcome and found the facilities to be clean, tidy and very acceptable. Perfect location next to the dog friendly part of the beach and close to the town centre. Breakfast was a joy; from the lovely carafe of coffee to the fried bread as... More

Very nice Bed & Breakfast in a good seafront location with very friendly staff and owners. Stayed for one night only having arrived relatively late but would have enjoyed a longer stay if time had allowed.

We had a room facing the seafront and the view was fantastic! There were plenty of windows and comfortable seating to enjoy the atmosphere of the seafront! The room was very clean and had all the amenities desired. The bed and linens were more than adequate. Breakfast was plentiful in choices and the breakfast room was cheery and inviting. Hosts...

I stayed for two nights while doing a workshop at the Birley Centre. My room was comfortable and clean and Janine was very welcoming. The atmosphere is generally very friendly and relaxed. I would definitely stay there again if I return to Eastbourne and I have already recommended it to a friend.

We booked in for a 2 night stay and the location of the B&B was perfect for us as we had tickets for 2 days at the Devonshire Park tennis tournament, as we walked in through the front door we knew we wouldn't be disappointed, and we weren't. Very clean, tidy, and homely with comfortable quiet rooms, and the full... More
