Last minute single room booking to meet friends in town. What a comfortable, friendly stay. Great location too, and even let me park the day of checkout while I finished my Christmas shopping. Will recommend to others, thank you!

We decided to use up some holiday and booked in at The Sheldon. We're so glad we did !! It's a family run business and there is a really nice feel about the place. Staff are friendly, the rooms are clean (and ours was massive) and the beds are to die for !!! Our bed was so comfy, we took... More

Booked for an overnight stay in Eastbourne - Literally, phoned up spoke to the hotel, who confirmed room and would be available on our arrival an hour later. The room was lovely, updated, modern, with home comforts, free wi fi, flat screen tv, tea/coffee facilities etc. The bathroom although small was fine. The breakfast in the morning was superb, so...

We went to Eastbourne for a 4 night stay in October and found the Sheldon to be excellent accommodation. On arrival we were up-graded from a Standard to a Superior room - at no extra cost! Incidentally, this was the biggest room we have ever had in any of the hotels we've visited over the years. Very comfortable and well... More

Stayed here in October 2014 and whilst the hotel is reasonably ok, the room above the car park drivethrough was a little small and in desperate need of a paint. The walls had crayon over them and the skirting was chipped and badly scuffed. The sink also was cracked badly and the shower over the bath had black mould on... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and a very well managed business. Considering the owners Judith and Greg Brown have only been in charge for some 2 years, they have done wonders getting the high customer service standards, the building is well organised considering its age. Service and the presentation of breakfast was very good, like most recent reviews I... More

A lovely family run hotel which cannot do enough for you. It is ideally situated some 100 yards from the sea front yet only some 500 yards from the main shopping centre. It also has car parking which is at a premium in this area. The room was very comfortable, clean and roomy. Breakfast was first class, freshly cooked and... More

Stayed on a Saturday night and suitably surprised at how well this place has been prepared. It has the feel of a recent refurbishment with excellent beds, well laid out rooms which are generally easily accessible from the lift. Great breakfast in a lovely room as well. The walls are well soundproofed, despite being full we heard nothing from the... More

Thank you for your comments. I am so sorry that you missed Eastbourne's best bits, I think you must have missed the arndale centre completely. We also have the Enterprise Centre which is full of unique shops. Always ask at reception if you have any questions regarding the best places to go! More
