My children paid for a 2 night stay at Belle Toute as a gift for my 70th birthday and what a great gift. We were met on our arrival by Ian made to feel welcome, lovely room beautiful views, superb breakfast, and complimentary drinks at 5pm. We were sad to leave and hope to return. Thank you Ian and Shirley... More

My boyfriend booked this as a surprise and it was absolutely stunning. He organised with the staff to have champagne in the room for arrival and explained that he wanted to propose. They advised him on the quietest times in the lantern room and I believe they were very helpful. When we got there we were greeted at the door... More

We spent just one night at the lighthouse for our anniversary but wish we had been able to stay longer! The lighthouse is amazing and in a perfect location. The lantern room at the top of the lighthouse is gorgeous and the views are absolutely stunning - exactly like the pictures on their website. Shirley was lovely and always around... More

Standing alone and windswept on the top of the cliffs, Belle Tout really is a location like no other. The walks over to Beachy head and the seven sisters were breathtaking. The lighthouse itself was a wonderful place to stay. Our room, 'beach hut' was beautifully decorated and sparkling clean, and had everything we could have wanted: warm fluffy towels,... More

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary. We were made to feel extremely welcome in this beautiful B&B and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Small touches from the staff (such as a guided tour /history of the building, an anniversary card and a complimentary drink in the 360 degree viewing room) helped make our stay extra special. We stayed... More

We first visited this amazing place in November last year and booked for this visit before we had even left last time. I have stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts over the years, some of them have been quite unusual ( windmills, a tree house, an old Pullman railway carriage ) but I had never experienced ANYTHING as perfect as...

If you are looking for a totally unique place to stay then this is for you. Having stayed last year for our 25th Wedding Anniversary, we fell in love with this beautiful building and had to return for a second stay. Belle Tout has fantastic friendly service, excellent food and comfortable rooms. But the main attraction has to be the... More

We stayed 2 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. A fantastic and highly unusual location, with incredible 360-degree views of coast and downs. Staff very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our room (Captains Cabin) was a bit on the small side but had a wonderful view of Beachy Head, was full of character, very comfy and spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the... More
