We needed just a one night stay in Eastbourne and picked the Sheldon, mainly because of the private parking facilities. It's not a bad little place at all, nothing special but it did fulfil our needs. The only thing I didn't like was the hard pillows, but that's personal preference. It's quite relaxed, you can order a take away and...

This is a well managed friendly hotel in an excellent location near to the front but far enough back to be not bothered by traffic noise. Our room at the rear of the hotel was perfect for us and was very comfortable and clean. Judith Brown, our host, couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. We would definitely stay here...

Booked for 4 nights ended up staying 5. This hotel is in an ideal location for the town centre and the sea front. Judith is a lovely host always bubbly and happy to help. Our room was very spacious and allowed my partner to work at times when needed. Great place to stay.

My husband, my brother and I stayed for just one night at The Sheldon as we had booked to see a favourite show at a local theatre. The hotel is conveniently located, just off the sea front and within easy walking distance of Eastbourne town centre as well as local theatres. Restaurants and local shops within a couple of minutes...
