This is our second visit to The Sherwood. The location is great so accessible to reach the seafront and the town centre is only ten minutes away. We found some lovely restaurants all within 10-15 minute walk. The owners are very welcoming and are only to happy to offer local information and help while staying. Breakfast is great, cereals, fruit... More

The Sherwood is a fabulous Victorian seaside Guest House only 1 min. walk from the seafront! This traditional Guest House is an excellent alternative! My room was spotlessly clean with a home from home feeling, plus a good sized bathroom with a shower. The breakfast was most likely the best I had in England with high quality bacon and sausage...

Single room, one night stay whilst on business. Straight forward check in, really small room but contains everything you need. Decent bathroom but as with many of these B&B rooms the water took ages to heat up and the extractor fan went on a bit. The breakfast was perfect....from the service which was timely to the actual breakfast which was... More

Carol and Bo where both very friendly and welcoming. Food was outstanding. Rooms very comfortable and clean. Would recommend this guest houe for a short or long stay, a short walk from the front and the theatres.

Very friendly guest house just around the corner from the sea front in Eastbourne. Good sized room, making the most of the space - particularly in the en-suite - and with much attention to detail; decorated nicely with co-ordinating soft furnishings, free bottled water and even a tea towel for the coffee mugs. Our room (no 11) was at the... More

We stayed here last week just for one night and had a lovely stay. Bed was comfortable and owner was friendly. Also walking distance to everything. Only downside was that there was a lot of banging in the yard first thing in the morning which woke us up and it could do with a little modernising. Breakfast was very good.

Great location - The beach is just a 2 minute walk away, the city center about 8 and the main train station about 10. We had a very nice and quiet room, clean as well. Bed was okay, not the most comfortable one but can't really complain. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is definitely worth staying before you... More

This delightful Guest House is a stone's throw from the promenade and is in the perfect spot for anything going on in the Devonshire Park Complex. The staff were friendly and flexible for an earlier breakfast that enabled us to make an early morning appointment. OK, it is not The Ritz, but it is a handy place to know about.

Great hotel accomodation. Perfect for theatre trips. Excellent breakfast and clean n comfy rooms. Very nice hosts. Close to seafront. Great to have the parking voucher then you don't have to worry about the parking in the street.
