I stayed here with my mum and though the weather wasn't great, we were allowed to bring our dog. Cheryl was very friendly and helpful. The decor was up to date, the place clean and breakfast was great with some very good healthy options. Will come back.

We stayed for 2 nights in a very comfortable and well equiped superior room. The staff were all very friendly and the breakfast excellent. We had one minor issue during our stay and they handled this exceptionally well. My only critique was that the tv was too small for the room - but this did not detract from the comfort...

We had an excellent King room on the second floor with views over the square, the promenade and sea. The room was very comfortable with sofa, two comfy writing chairs and table. Good bath, shower etc. Guest lounge on ground floor also very comfortable. Excellent breakfasts with fruits, cereals, yoghurt etc and the full English was very good with ease...

My wife booked this B&B for a business trip.Theres a plethora of hotels and guest house in the town but not many with so many positive reviews as this one. Our room though compact was very clean with a nice comfortable bed which we found welcoming after a 7 hour car journey. The breakfast room was bright and pleasant with...

Thank you Janine and Tony for another great visit to your lovely B&B. We had a lovely seafront room, and a superb breakfast. I always sleep so soundly in your lovely comfortable beds, with crisp white bedding. I visit friends in Eastbourne regularly, and always stay here at 17, so it is always highly recommended to any friends who wish...

A friendly bed and breakfast with first class service and excellent accommodation. Back for our annual visit to Number 17 which probably makes me a biased reviewer, but something must be right for us to keep coming back year on year. Parking right outside, Tony greets us with the parking permit ready so no stress there. Room number 8 (my...

This B&B has fantastic reviews and I was delighted to be able to get a room for my daughter and myself for 2 nights. Our room, at the top of the building did indeed have a lovely sea view, but it did not compensate for the cacophony of the next room's plumbing, waking us with the noise on both nights....

Back to eastbourne for a rotary conference. Number 17 is the perfect place if you are visiting the Congress theatre or conference. No need for a taxi, no worry for a single lady (or man for that matter) walking home alone, very well lit in the square - although watch out for the uneven pavement if you are in your...
