My partner and I stayed at the Bay Tree for 2 nights. We received a warm welcome from the owners who were very helpful. We had a lovely room with little extras such as bottles of water provided each day. The power shower was fantastic! The guest house is very well located being close to the pier, shops and restaurants.... More

Our hosts Grace and Geoff were excellent. Very helpful. They helped with luggage to room which was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well fitted out. The shower was more than powerful and one of the best we've had anywhere. Wifi was available throughout the guest house which was a big added bonus. The dinning room was cosy and very friendly and...

If you want to get away from the sea front hotels full of coach tripping pensioners take a short walk from what's left of the pier to find this place. Clean, comfortable, great breakfast and friendly owners. On street parking can be a bit of a pain but once you find a spot is free with the voucher supplied from... More

We enjoyed our stay at the B&B for a weekend. The new owners emailed me ahead of the stay to let me know they had taken over and check for dietary preferences. They bought in soy milk and yoghurts as well as vegetarian sausages to provide us a delightful vegetarian breakfast. The buffet in the dining room had the usual... More

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
