Visited here for 2 nights while working in the area originally, the job carried over and we needed a room for the night, was fully booked but managed to squeeze me and another worker in for the night with little notice at a late time, very clean room, very good reception from the owners, and very reasonable prices.

We had a lovely long weekend stay in Eastbourne and at The Guesthouse East. It's a perfect location, getting to both the beach and town in a few minutes. Tony and Lisa made us feel very welcome from day one and totally at home. Our 2.5 year old daughter had an amazing time and has since asked us if she... More

Really pleased with the choice of hotel. Tony & Lisa were lovely hosts who were very friendly, accomodating and helped with our questions and needs of our 14 month old baby. They have a massive box of toys which were a real bonus. The hotel is decorated well in a contemporary style and the rooms are a good size and... More

Great location. So close to the beach and town, it's really easy to pop back to your room. Run by a really friendly, down to earth couple, who make you feel very welcome. The rooms are huge with everything you need, down to baby spoons. Perfect place to stay if you have children, I took my 8 month old daughter... More

We were looking for a baby friendly Hotel or B&B, and The Guesthouse East was just perfect for our family break. Tony and Lisa could not have been more welcoming.

We had a four-night stay at the Guesthouse East this week and had the most amazing time. The guest house is perfectly located only a minute from the beach and the accommodation is clean, comfortable and a real home from home.

Tony and Lisa are charming and really kind. It is a lovely place, really clean and well located. It was really nice finding a place where staying with your 9 month old bay is not a problem.
