I enjoyed my stay at this guest house, the hosts were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble for them. Very clean and tidy. Good breakfast. I would stay here again if coming through Eastbourne as it was very good value for money. .

I had stayed in this hotel several times about 12 years ago and was curious to see how it had changed over the years. The furnishings were pleasant in the public areas and the new owners, Duncan and Kristian, had created a relaxed and comfortable environment. For the end of September / beginning of October I was surprised to see... More

Highly recommended. Beach Front is run by a very professional and welcoming team who will ensure that your stay is memorable. Spotless room, comfy bed and great breakfast - what more can you ask for. No complaints from us.

First visit to Eastbourne and found this little jewel on the seafront offering wonderful seaside views including the pier, where we were very well looked after for three nights. The spacious sea view room was well furnished including a huge, comfortable bed. All facilities beautifully clean, breakfasts delicious. Duncan and Kris were most welcoming and always helpful - wonderful hosts.... More

When I booked the room I was asked what time would we arrive, I estimated around 11am. To my surprise Duncan and Kris (owners) went out their way to make sure our room was ready, so therefore my husband and I were able to enjoy our holiday from that minute. The room was bright and very clean. Special request for... More

I had a lovely single room with a superb sea view together with a small balcony to have a drink on. Wafching the sun rise over the sea was an absolute delight. Nice and clean room with everything you need. Very welcoming hosts and breakfast was gorgeous.

This Bed and Breakfast was perfect. Every detail was attended to. I loved the cookies in the room. The sea view from our room was gorgeous! The hosts were very friendly and attentive. And if that was not enough the breakfast was excellent as well. You could choose what you wanted the night before and they had Full English and... More
