Eddy was incredibly welcoming to us and our dog. Lovely clean, comfortable room. Great advice on walks and dog friendly pubs and restaurants. Very tasty home made breakfast. The hotel truly welcomes dogs rather than just tolerating them. Highly recommend. Peter, Susan and Brenna.

I've stayed here 3 summers consecutively, during visits to Eastbourne. The hotel has spectacular views of the sea and pier, very clean and comfortable rooms, and wonderfully welcoming and friendly proprietors. Right on the seafront too, a short walk from the restaurants and town centre. The breakfast is first class, with fresh coffee, homemade muesli, homemade fresh fruit salads and... More
