“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Debbie and Eric make you so welcome to this spotless, extremely well equipped , five star B&B. My wife and I stopped for two nights recently, it was our second visit, and were so impressed with the total quality of everything. They only have two rooms so pre booking is probably essential . Another wonderful stay.

See review entitled 'Impeccable' for our views on this wonderful place - forgot to upload pictures - so here they are! Also worth saying that the bed in the Egerton Suite is huge - super kingsize and there is an enormous TV in the room too. You might think that 44+ Excellent reviews is just not possible - but the place is that good! Lots of on and off street parking too!

We could not have chosen a better place to stay in bexhill, whilst visiting our son nearby. Huge, comfy and pristine room (Everton suite) with fabulous bathroom compete with slipper bath and large shower cubicle. Everywhere was immaculate and tastefully decorated. Lovely big breakfasts using high quality local ingredients. Host Debbie was very attentive and friendly. Short walk to bexhill centre and even shorter walk to seafront via collingwood station. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Egerton suite has huge en suite bathroom.

Debbie and Eric are really the perfect hosts. The Old Manse is a beautiful house that really makes you feel at home. There is a very complete choice of breakfast options, which are all locally prepared and you can really taste the fact that Eric uses the highest quality locally sourced ingredients and prepares the food with as much love as expertise. The room we stayed in was very tastefully decorated with a large bathroom equipped with a free standing bath and a shower, both finished to very high standards.
We will definitely go back next time we visit the area.

We visit Bexhill on a regular basis when visiting my parents and The Old Manse is always out first choice. We enjoy staying at The Old Manse as we are really well looked after by Debbie and Eric.
There is a wide variety of choice for breakfast, starting with fresh fruit, followed by a cooked breakfast, not forgetting Eric's delicious home-made bread all to keep you going for the day. The bedrooms are both very nice - we are quite happy with either room. The bedrooms and bathrooms are both spotlessly clean. Look forward to returning and seeing you all soon.

Just returned from another visit The Old Manse in Bexhill and it is still simply the best B&B we have stayed in.... In fact it's miles better than the majority of top hotels with that added personal greeting - and tea and cake!

Debbie & Eric are the perfect hosts! The accommodation is still in pristine condition and the spacious luxurious surroundings always leave us feeling refreshed and restored :-)

The breakfast is stunning - all local and mainly organic ingredients set you up for the day perfectly.

Attention to detail is key here and everything base is covered - plenty of parking, large bathrooms, top range bath products even a DVD collection in case you just want the evening in.

For business users it would be the perfect place to relax after those business meetings - and probably a lot cheaper than most hotels so even keeping you manager happy into the bargain....

If you're in the area, treat yourself to some real luxury.....

We arrived shortly after 8pm after a family party and were made very welcome with a lovely pot of tea and homemade cake and biscuits-delicious. The room was very large and very tastefully decorated and had a comfortable sofa and decent sized TV. The bed was the most comfortable we have slept in for a long while. The bathroom was just as big as the bedroom and was beautifully equipped. Breakfast was superb with poached plums, homemade whiskey marmalade made by Eric and a lovely cooked breakfast. Debbie and Eric were wonderful hosts and we plan a return visit later in the year as they are close to a station for easy exploring.

Room Tip: There are two rooms, both very large and well equipped
