So what do you want from a guest house? A friendly and genuinely warm welcome? Tick. Clean and well presented rooms? Tick. Room 7, the suite, was great; the balcony with a sea view was very relaxing. A really comfortable bed? Tick. A good breakfast? Tick. An owner who makes you feel welcome ("This is your home for the next... More

Just returned from the Vernon & my expectations were more than exceeded. It was the very last room available to us to stay for the Eastbourne Airshow. The room was clean, comfortable, recently decorated & well fitted out. We stayed for a lovely breakfast which was delicious & generous. The staff were very friendly & helpful. We would definitely return... More

This is situated very centrally to access to beach, shops or Devonshire Park. Room was very clean, large and a reasonably good breakfast. The only complaint I had was the wooden bed frame was too short for my 6'2" partner who could not stretch out - worth checking. I'm not sure if all rooms are the same.

A lovely clean guesthouse with welcoming staff and clean fresh rooms. No bar so if you want a drink you need to go out but that's really not a criticism - easy commute to Brighton and breakfast is loving prepared and served to your liking Town centre and train stations a two minute walk away

We stayed this weekend and it's not our normal hotel. Well we'll be using it again! Great host who let us use the garden for our grandchildren so they could visit. We didn't make breakfast as we always lie in but it was available until 10am which is great! The room we had was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Great... More

The hotel is very nice and it really has a character!!! We stayed only for one night but honestly we wished that our trip would never end. The room was beautiful, cozy and we were very impressed for the cleanless as well. The location is perfect too, very close to the sea, train station and basically to everything. The hotel... More

What a lovely place and a lovely stay: friendly, efficient staff, clean and well maintained throughout, soft towels, comfortable beds, quiet rooms. A great location just off the sea front and handy for the pier, main shopping area and station. Great value for money, cannot recommend highly enough. Well done!
