This has to be my favourite ever weekend break. Stunning place, stunning views and very delicious breakfasts cooked by a proper chef. The views from the light room are brilliant on a clear day and the rooms are clean and modern with rustic elements. Although in a remote location overlooking the cliffs ofthe Seven Sisters, Eastbourne is only about a... More

Just returned from a lovely 2 night stay at this brilliant lighthouse. Stayed in Shiraz which was fantastic, as are all the rooms. Ian, the manager, was the perfect host and an excellent chef. The breakfast was delicious and very filling. The lighthouse has incredible views over the Downs and the coast which you never tire of.
