When it comes to b&b you can not expect hotel standards,like some of the reviewers on this site are expecting. I had a lovely stay here 3 days in may. The rooms are clean and tidy & the owners are very nice and helpful in many ways.The full English breakfast is a classic old school one,no posh dish with rubbish... More

Just back from a night in the Sherwood. We had a very friendly welcome and felt at home from the second we got there. The breakfast was lovely and plenty of it. The rooms are small but they are clean and well kept. Overall it is no frills but you don't expect any from a B&B. There is a nice... More

Stayed while arranging Mum's funeral Single room was small, but clean, comfortable and quiet Fast internet once I reset the router as suggested by the Swedish owner, was able to watch my Nowtv films with no buffering. Lovely cooked breakfast

We took a trip to Eastbourne last minute and booked this on the day, but we were not disappointed. Greeted by the owner who was friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and quaint, lovely guesthouse in a central location of Eastbourne. The room had its own bathroom with tea/coffee/biscuits and free WIFI. At breakfast there were a few choices...

Spent a few days here last week with Bo and Carole. When I came last year they had literally just taken over. A year on every bit as good with a few new touches. Breakfast really good. Rooms very well equipped and clean. A lovely friendly guest house. Will be back next year

We have just returned from short stay in Eastbourne. The Sherwood has all you need for a very relaxing, homely stay. Excellent location for strolls along the front and close to the pier and shops. Parking is in the street nearby but parking tickets are available from the Sherwood. Great selection for breakfast with efficient service. Rooms are spotlessly clean... More

Bo and Carole give a very personal and friendly service. They both made a point of talking to us and seeing how we were. The breakfast selection was great! I was very impressed by that. It was also just 3 minutes away from our conference venue so that was extremely handy. But it was also only a 10 minute walk... More

We stayed here for one night as we wanted to go to Beachy Head. The Sherwood is quite basic but is clean and did the trick. It is a typical traditional English guest house with a quaint feeling to it. Nice if you want to avoid the soul-less Premier Inn/Travelodge type rooms. The location is perfect - you can walk... More
