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... More

From your first moment of contact with this B & B you are assured of a good experience with very friendly owners & staff. Location is excellent on a quiet square just steps from the seafront towards the quieter end of Eastbourne. Parking is well catered for with a £1 permit valid all-day and until 11.00am the following day meaning... More

We stayed here during our tripp to England south coast and I am already, before leaving thinking how to get an excuse to come back. Kids of 11, 15 and 18 do all love it and for adults this is just a perfect spot to relax and feel comfortable. Thanks for having us and see you again!

Beautiful B&B near the wish tower in Eastbourne. Clean and welcoming. Great selection for breakfast. If you go there take advantage of the parking permit offered as it really does save you some money. This B&B is one of the best I have stayed in.

The B&B is well located for the seafront and even better located for the Congress Theatre - within 5 minutes walk. There were 3 of us sharing a room at the top of the B&B; a lovely light and airy room with sea views. A slight mix-up with the booking meant that the room was prepared as a king sized... More

Only stayed one night but was impressed with the decor and attention to detail. Janice the owner was welcoming and friendly and very helpful and gave me a very nice upgrade. The place is very well located to the theatres the downside of this does make it difficult to park in the square though as all the theatre goers park... More

We just keep coming back - nothing is too much trouble, want to know where to eat? Ask Tony or Janine they will have a recommendation. Want to find a specific shop? they will know. Can't fault the service, can't fault the breakfast, can't fault the rooms. The little touches make all the difference, home made items on the breakfast... More
