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...

Beautifully decorated hotel with excellent service. Clean and tidy rooms with a super comfy bed. The breakfast had good choice and was a lovely treat! Also a great location situated moments from the seafront and not far from Eastbourne's town centre. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Eastbourne!

Here's a bed and breakfast which is far superior to most four star hotels, A nice large room with en-suite all very tastefully decorated and appointed. The Egyptian cotton linen and comfortable bed and soft, yet firm pillows allowing for a splendid nights sleep. We had a room overlooking the ocean on the third floor (no elevator so be aware...

When planning to stay in the same place for 3 weeks it's hard to know if you're making the right choice ..... Well, I can honestly say I couldn't have chosen better. From the first moment, the staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The hotel is so beautifully decorated; whoever chose the colour schemes and designs has...

If for some reason you need to be in Eastbourne, this is certainly a good place to stay. Rooms are lovely, good night sleep, the square is pretty quiet (as the rest of this town). Note that the upper floors are pretty high and there is no lift, so check if you have mobility problems. Breakfast is very good, and...
