We stayed for the second time in two years for a 2-nights stay in the Vernon Guesthouse, as we had a very pleasant and comfortable stay here before. Upon arrival, we were very friendly greeted by Joe, the owner, and as he had recognized us he already opened his private garage and offered a secure place for our three precious... More

We initially planned to stay one night for a 40th in the area but decided to make a weekend of it and so glad we did. The friendly, helpful owners & staff were attentive but not intrusive, the spacey room with a balcony gave us a little sea view and the modern recently decorated large bathroom together provided superb accommodation....

Although this guest house looks a little run down in places, it was great for a last minute trip to Eastbourne. Room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Manager and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Good breakfast too.

We stayed here for one night when attending the Eastbourne tennis tournament. Our room was lovely with a nice firm bed. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really nice and all hot and freshly cooked. Parking was available just across the street. It was also really convenient for the tennis being only a 5 minute walk away.

My husband and I planned a last minute trip to eastbourne with our bikes and stayed one night at the Vernon House hotel. We received a very warm welcome from the manager, and were offered the garage to keep our bikes securely. The room was comfortable, clean and everything we needed. The manager went out his way to be helpful.... More

Booked this hotel for one night during the air show in August. I wouldn't normally choose a 2 star hotel, but decided to give it a try as the reviews on Tripadvisor were so good. The hotel is in a great location, & we even managed to park right outside the entrance to the hotel. The owner & all the... More

The Vernon is in a great location. It's situated a short walk from the seafront and just far enough away so as not to be disturbed by late night revellers. It's also excellent value for money. It's very clean and it has recently been refurbished internally. The staff are efficient and friendly. We had a room with a balcony and... More
