We stayed in Eastbourne for 1 night and choose The Mowbray, such a good choice too. Nice little b&b, slightly of the main strip so a bit quieter, but still walking distance to everything. The room was large and clean, and the breakfast was good too, plenty to eat. Would definitely visit again.

did not realise very close to tennis so parking very difficult. very friendly and clean all facilities you would expect. excellent breakfast. would recommend stay as in good position. do not know how busy resort is in august but although permits provided, parking close to hotel may be difficult. this applies to most hotels in the area.

Thank you very much indeed for leaving us a review. The Aegon International is indeed a full on event and of course we are very popular with the tennis fans. I believe you booked in on-line as a result of a cancellation and didn't know it was on. Usually our guests never have a problem parking. The permit scheme actually... More

Just required a b&b close to my parents hotel and this was ideal. Nice location, excellent for parking which they gave me a permit for. Room was what I expected and as they say the bathroom was small but this did not put me off. Checking in was superb and the owner was very friendly. Now what can I say... More

Don't get me wrong: it's not perfect (the place could do with a degree of sprucing up), but it offers a range of highlights that include fantastic location, clean rooms, fast wifi boosted on each floor for optimum performance throughout the building, and a truly outstanding breakfast (I had to downgrade from the full English on our 2nd morning due...

Thank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed our cooking. The demand for in-house dinners have declined due to the fact that there are just so many great places to eat on our doorstep and of course we have arranged discounts at many of them for our guests. We do have a menu always available but it is subject to... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by The Mowbray. I'm super fussy about accommodation and this exceeded my expectations. We stayed in room 16 that sleeps 4. The room was light and spacious, beds comfortable and everything very clean. There were ample supplies to make tea and coffee and even a bowl of fruit. Above everything the staff were exemplary.
