Thoroughly enjoyed the comprehensive breakfasts served by friendly, competent staff. And, as for...

Excellent breakfasts with a great variety of...

Thank you for identifying that we are a large guest house. Sounds like perhaps you booked thinking we were a large hotel? I'm pleased that this did not cause you to overlook our positive points. We continuously review the state of our rooms and refurbish when funds allow.

The Mowbray is central to the town, beach, theatre and pier yet quiet and peaceful at night. Our room was lovely and the breakfast was outstanding. The little extras were very thoughtful. A smoothie with breakfast. Packs available with the little things you forget - toothbrush, toothpaste, razor and shaving gel etc. There is a bar and when the owners...

My girlfriend and I booked this hotel/guest house last minute through booking.com to spend a night in Eastbourne and we were not disappointed. The room was fairly small, however the price we were paying was so little it was completely justified, but also very cosy, warm and honestly romantic!
