From the warm welcome to the well stocked tea and coffee selections in the roomy kitchen, we were very impressed with everything at this B&B. Decor is stylish, location perfect - being just half a block from the sea front - and every part of the hotel was perfectly clean. The building has high ceilings and huge windows so the...

Perfect place for a weekend get away to a longer family holiday. We are a family of five, and we found ourselves at the top of the house with plenty of space. We all slept well in crisp clean cotton sheets and comfortable beds. A perfect weekend break.

My husband and I stayed at The Guesthouse East with our 7 week old daughter. Being the first trip away from home we were very nervous about how it would go but from the initial conversation with Tony on the phone, to being made to feel extremely welcome on arrival, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!...

Our visit here was in late January, and being new to Eastbourne I wasn't sure what to expect, or what to do with my wife and two children (especially in January when the weather isn't up to much!). We couldn't have come to a better place than the Guesthouse East. Beautiful rooms, heavenly beds, AMAZING location and your own top...

We stayed for a quick weekend break in Eastbourne. This was a very nice place to stay; it was very quiet and the hosts were very attentive. Everything was immaculate in the suite and the rest of the hotel, and the location is very close to the water and not far from town/restaurants. The suite we stayed in (3) had...
