New owners had taken over only a week before we visited. Still trying to get themselves sorted but obviously keen to keep up the reputation of the business built up by the previous owners. Position is great on a road just back from the pier with free on road parking provided. Had a room on the front of the house... More

Stayed for 5 days in June 2014, great place, very friendly owners are accommodating and helpful. Parking permit is included in stay which is a necessity if you have a car. Lovely breakfasts. Property is situated a 2 minute walk from Eastbourne pier and the beach, perhaps 5 minute walk to the center of the main shopping street. Nearest good... More

This small 6 bedroom guest house is very central and offers an excellent base to explore the surrounding area. Breakfasts are really great - full English and then extras such as pancakes!! Help with luggage was much appreciated and our hosts were very helpful. Parking permits for on-street parking were also provided each day.

We stayed for four nights at The Bay Tree and found it a lovely experience. The guest house itself is very well maintained, very clean and the breakfasts are excellent. It's also in a good position to access the pier and promenade and all theatres, also within easy distance of many bars restaurants and shopping. The owners Chris and Duncan... More

It is only a stones throw from the beach and pier, spotlessly clean and comfortable. You can order your breakfast the night before, or leave it until the morning - either way your breakfast is freshly cooked, lovely and tasty. The owners are kind and sweet, helpful and cheerful - full of information about Eastbourne, restaurants, places to go. Fresh,... More

Our hosts were very nice & very flexible. They go out of their way to please you. The place is spotless and very well located. We might go back to Eastbourne in July and would definitely stay there if available. Thank you for everything.

What a way to end our walk on the South Downs Way! Kris and Duncan were delightful hosts and the guest house was just as charming. My friend and I stayed in the large double which was very comfortable and bright. The street was very quiet. The location was terrific - close to the water and yet not too far... More

The Baytree Guesthouse is simply the best B&B that I have stayed in! The rooms are a good size, clean and beautifully prepared for your arrival. Duncan and Kris are the perfect hosts and they simply can't do enough to help you. My wife and I have 3 kids under the age of 8 - and we have repeatedly been... More

Kristian and Duncan made us very welcome and helped us park our car with a free permit. Our room was comfortable and spotless and the breakfast was freshly prepared and delicious. The guest house was perfectly sited, just around the corner from Eastbourne Pier. We will definitely return to Bay Tree Guest House next time we are in Eastbourne.
