Due to booking relatively late I was only able to stay here for one night before moving to another guest house nearby, but Angela and Steve provided such a great experience that I hope I will be able to stay longer the next time I am in Eastbourne. I much appreciated Steve's phone call, immediately after I had booked on... More

There are too many guest houses in England now where you pay a fair amount and get something very average, if not poor. Southcroft is an example of how a guesthouse should be. Run by owners who really care about your stay, and make you feel extremely welcome and at home from the moment you set foot in the door... More

First impressions count and the beautiful flowers and baskets outside Southcroft make a lovely first impression. There is free roadside parking outside, and it was no trouble getting a parking space outside. I stayed here with my sisters - I had a single room and they shared a double. Both rooms were lovely - clean and comfortable both with their... More

This is an example of a perfect b&b, a home away from home. Everything has been thought of from freshly baked bread and home made jams to thick fluffy towels, complimentary water in the room and a very warm welcome from Steve & Angela. Can not fault this place! Location also perfect at the end of Eastbourne if you're mainly... More

If you want a hotel in Eastbourne that’s near the sea and which feels friendly, cosy, quiet, comfortable and secure, then the Southcroft is for you. My wife and I recently stayed there for 3 weeks and loved every moment of it. The Southcroft’s rooms are spacious, light and airy. Bottled water and biscuits are provided daily in addition to...

This was our second stay with Steve and Angela, who are really fantastic hosts, always ready for a chat and a joke. We had the same room as previously which had everything we needed, including fresh fruit, and spotlessly clean . The house is at the quiet end of Eastbourne not far from the South Downs Way, which is ideal... More

I stayed for two nights to spend a day at the tennis. Was a bit late on the first day and was welcomed beautifully with a cup of tea and a slice of cake - both lovely. Room very nice and perfectly-equipped. Steve recommended two places to eat both of which were very good. Wifi was slightly dodgy at times... More

This time we visited this welcoming, friendly guesthouse for Christmas - and we weren't disappointed. We stayed for three nights and everything was outstanding from the excellent home-cooked food to the warm and comfortable rooms and the beautiful way the whole house was decorated. Home-made mince pies and Christmas cake on arrival, bucks fizz for breakfast, presents of chocolates. You... More
