We stayed in room 6 (family room) with our 11 year old grandson. Beautiful sea views from our window, two comfy chairs and a table where you could sit and enjoy watching the boats and bowling on the green just across the road. Our room was spacious, comfortable and very clean indeed. Opposite was The Redoubt Fortress. When we stayed... More

Could not fault this excellent guest house. Friendly, caring owners who knew you by name and made good recommendations on where to eat at night. Clean, comfortable room with really good shower. Breakfast excellent with real fresh fruit - blueberries , raspberries and kiwi - wow. Hot food freshly cooked and boiled eggs perfect. Personal touches too such as ice... More

A breath of fresh air! Recently modernised and very tastefully refitted. Friendly, clean and comfortable. I real 'Find'. Breakfast was a delight on the terrace. We'll definitely stay again. In easy reach of the town centre.

What a fantastic time, Catherine and Howard made us so welcome, greeting us by name, and being so helpful. The house is very comfortable and clean, the rooms are excellent, with the little personal touches that make them special. Nothing was too much trouble for Catherine and Howard, and breakfast was superb..thank you Howard. We will definitely be staying again.

We have been using Bassets House for many years and were a bit worried when the old owners told us they were retiring. We need not have worried. Catherine and Howard have enhanced an already outstanding reputation. A friendly, pesonalble and caring couple they have ensured the outstanding Bassets repuitation and value for money will continue. We will be back... More

What a lovely stay we had here. Catherine and Howard are the perfect hosts who made us feel instantly welcome and at home. Our room was lovely and spotlessly clean, the breakfasts excellent and all located within a short walk to the pier. Next time we need to stay in the area Bassets will most definitely be our first choice.

I'll keep this short - because the majority of reviewers have already stated why this small hotel / guest house is so good. Basically, it's down to the owners, Catherine and Howard, who provide a first rate accommodation service in every respect - lovely property, updated and decorated to a very high standard, well located, excellent individualised breakfasts, and an...

Visiting the UK for 4 weeks (from Aust) we mainly stayed in B&B's. Our 2 nights in Bassets in early May was unsurpassed for its overall package of quality accommodation and wonderful reception from the hosts. Now we are finally home we have only the very best memories based on the reception we received and the breakfasts, friendliness, travel advice... More

We had a lovely weekend in Eastbourne staying at the Bassets House Hotel. The owners were wonderflly warm and welcoming and the hotel was immaculate. Highly recommended. The hotel is two minutes from the beach. Our room had a view of the south downs but rooms at the front have sea views.
