We stayed at the Vernon house Hotel from 15th-17th August 2014 for the Airborne Show, which was fantastic especially The Arrows. The owner Joe was very friendly and welcoming even letting us use his private parking space due to the overwhelming amount of people attracted to the Air Show, the staff were welcoming always smiling and friendly.

The Vernon House Hotel was a real find - easy to find (!), very good situation one street back from the sea front, close to the peer and shopping streets. But just as important, a very friendly welcome by the owner and his staff, very helpful with car parking vouchers, advice on what to do and where to go. And... More

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

This hotel is excellent value for money. It is situated near the seafront and within walking distance to the town center. We could park right alongside the hotel, which was quite convenient. We had a very spacious and clean room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were served an excellent english breakfast. We highly recommend this hotel to... More
