5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for a couple of nights and had a lovely stay, very clean with lovely fresh bedding, massive ensuite and a fantastic breakfast with the best homemade bread I've tasted. We were made to feel very welcome by Andrew & Angela and would definitely stay again. No sea views but the beach front is literally 25 metres away.

Tastefully furnished, clean and lovely bed linen. Great selection at breakfast - Angela knows how to cook, Andrew very helpful on arrival with information etc. Must be the best B&B in Eastbourne, If down in the area this a must to stay in. Forget impersonal hotels. Alison & Peter

We stayed as a couple in late July. We loved staying at the Gyves, Andrew and Angela are welcoming hosts, and the homemade bread served at breakfast (which was cooked to order and perfection) was superb. Our room was clean and comfortable and the location of the guest house is just right for access to the beach and Eastbourne's main... More

All you want from a B&B. Friendly, modern, clean and comfortable. Breakfast choice and quality exceptional, best bacon we've had in years! Prepared fresh, fruit salad delicious with natural yoghurt. Rooms well appointed and quiet with blackout blinds for a good night's sleep. The beds very comfortable too. Great position near seafront so easy, level stroll along the promenade to... More

What a super B&B with everything that we could want, friendly hosts, lovely rooms, a good location and stunning breakfasts. Our room was very clean, tastefully decorated and benefited from a huge bathroom. The dining room was lovely and breakfasts were among the best we've ever experienced at a B&B. Home made bread and top quality ingredients made the breakfast... More

I stayed for four days. The room was clean and tidy, and had a nice decor with original hard wood flooring which was lovely. The breakfast had a wide choice, and though I did not have a cooked breakfast I still felt catered for with their home made continental selection. The owners were knowledgable and friendly and did everything they... More

Gyves House, is around a 5/10 minute walk to Eastbourne pier. I had a single en-suite room which had wooden flooring, spotlessly clean and comfortable.... More
