Having stayed at the Ivydene overnight in April I found the guest house a lovely place to stay and was encouraged to come back for a longer break. This did not disappoint. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast excellent and really well organised. Darren and Martin are wonderful hosts and make you feel welcome from the moment... More

I needed a quiet and clean hotel for my two-week study in Eastbourne and my travel agency just managed to get the right place for me. I was happy to stay in Ivydene because it´s very near the sea and my summer school. Moreover, as a foreigner, I came across with many issues which were explained to me with patience... More

For many years I have been trying to find right place to stay in Eastbourne for my summer holidays (three weeks). This year 2015 I reckon I've found it. Accommodation is clean and comfortable. The food is excellent - Martin is a fine chef - and Darren is a "Jack of all trades". The guests are friendly and helpful with... More

Room was very clean and had all the basics covered. The staff were friendly and very willing to provide advice on the local area. English breakfast included was tasty. Decor was a little old fashioned but all furnishings seemed in very good conditions. All for a very reasonable price, would definitely stay again.

As the Ivydene had a pleasant-looking single room on the ground floor, I booked it for my elderly mother, who can't manage stairs. From our initial contact on the phone to the point when we collected her, I knew she was in good hands. The exterior of the Ivydene is lovely with it's planted tubs, which reflect the well-kept interior.... More

I have stayed at the Ivydene before and decided to book a last minute break as the weather forecast looked good. Darren the owner said that Eastbourne is named the Sunshine Coast and it certainly was the weekend we stayed. Again breakfast was fantastic. I stayed in a different room to last time which overlooked the South Downs. I wish... More

The Ivydene is an "old-school" B&B in the center of Eastbourne with good access to both the boardwalk and the city. We stayed for four nights as a group of teachers on a class trip and the owners made us feel very welcome and were perceptive of our needs the entire time. We hope to come back the next time...

On arrival and throughout your stay Martin and Darren are warm and friendly. There is a "Homely " feel throughout this Hotel with clean and comfortable rooms. The Guest Lounge is ideal to relax in with a drink The Breakfast is excellent. We always look forward to our stay at " The Ivydene "
