Hosts were very helpful, breakfast tasty, room large, clean, and reasonably comfortable. Location just off the seafront was good, and parking in the street was convenient and very inexpensive. Overall a pleasant experience, and we would probably stay there if we happen to visit Eastbourne again.

A lovely relaxing overnight stay at the Guesthouse East again, with our two boys. We stayed in room 7 which had plenty of room for the 4 of us and was very peaceful. We woke to the sound of seagulls and the sun shining! I can recommend Carl's legendary porridge too. Great location just a minute from the beach, great... More

Stayed there over the weekend, owners very friendly and made an effort to make us feel welcome, from carrying our bags up the stairs to helping with a takeaway. Rooms good, stylish and plenty of space. Great location, easy to park and a stone's throw from the beach - and very child friendly too. Would highly recommend it.

I was traveling with my 3 kids and what a pleasant surprise the Guesthouse was! Location was great, the owners were even better. We didn't want to leave. Spacious room for 4 of us and clean. We ended up needing one more night and they found us a room in town because they were completely booked - incredible help that... More

We stayed for three nights at this Guest House, which was not only offering breakfast and excellent accommodation but could also be used as self-catering. The room was spacious and clean and the bed large and comfortable. Bathroom was also clean and more than adequate. The small kitchen had all the facilities needed. The staff serviced the apartment daily, and... More

After what could have been the most disastrous Easter weekend having missed our flights to Ibiza... we found ourselves in Eastbourne for the night. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Owner and very smiley Carl who promptly checked us in and put the kettle on (gotta love that). Had a really lovely chat about the ad industry as both Carl... More

we really enjoyed our stay, the room was very spacious and comfortable. Sarah and Carl are really nice people and could inform us on what to do and where to go with the children. The guesthouse east is really child-friendly. We Will certainly be coming back.

We stayed at the Guesthouse East with our 9-month baby boy. It was our first holiday as a family and Carl and Sarah made it a very relaxed one! Huge room, very comfortable bed, plus a travel cot, a highchair, a bottle steriliser... They really made us feel welcome, we will come back!

Sarah and Carl were very welcoming. The room was clean, bright and had plenty of space for us and both kids. We were only staying for one night but had we been staying longer the kitchen would have been very useful. Breakfast was yummy and Sarah and Carl were really thoughtful about the kids, bringing their meals as soon as... More
