“Best B & B Ever stayed in”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Just spent 8 days at 17 Wilmington Square in a beautifully appointed sea view room, quality furnishings and decor - massive windows providing a wonderful view. Quiet too with no noise from outside or from fellow guests. Spotlessly clean and run by the most friendly family Janine, Tony & Co whose sole aim appears to be to make their guests happy and comfortable in their home. As someone who enjoys a good breakfast every day I was certainly impressed with the quality, as well as quantity, of the fare served up each morning. There are many very nice touches to this establishment which makes it a real home from home. I can certainly reommend it, and when visiting Eastbourne in the future we will stay there.

Room Tip: Rooms 5 & 8 are the best - cost a bit more, but worth it.

I have stayed at 'seventeen' four times now, and it does not disappoint. Despite personal adversity, Janine has kept the standards high. The breakfast selection is one that will leave you wishing you had room for more.

We booked 17 Wilmington Sq having read the great reviews. The B&B is very conveniently located for town and the seafront and our room was pretty clean. The bathroom was only ok. Also I expected better/more toiletries for a 4* place but there was only a small shampoo and small shower gel, which wasn't replaced when our room was cleaned even though they were mostly used. The breakfast was excellent though. The owners are friendly and helpful, my one comment would be that on arrival we were told our room has a view of the downs but actually it's more like a view of some garages...The rooms at the front of the house have good views.

Stayed for 2 nights with our 2 dogs over August Bank Holiday. We received a warm welcome and found the facilities to be clean, tidy and very acceptable. Perfect location next to the dog friendly part of the beach and close to the town centre. Breakfast was a joy; from the lovely carafe of coffee to the fried bread as part of the full English. Everyone was so friendly and chatty to us and our dogs!! Will definitely recommend to others and visit again.

Myself, my wife and our 3 teenage daughters stayed for 3 nights at 17 Wilmington square last week on a short break, our family room was lovely, great sea view and clean.The owners and staff were very friendly and relaxed and Turkish the resident dog is a great little dog.
The breakfast was both delicious and ample with a great cooked breakfast and a really delicious fruit salad.
A Very good value for money B&B establishment with a hotel feel.

Very nice Bed & Breakfast in a good seafront location with very friendly staff and owners. Stayed for one night only having arrived relatively late but would have enjoyed a longer stay if time had allowed.

We had a room facing the seafront and the view was fantastic! There were plenty of windows and comfortable seating to enjoy the atmosphere of the seafront! The room was very clean and had all the amenities desired. The bed and linens were more than adequate. Breakfast was plentiful in choices and the breakfast room was cheery and inviting. Hosts Janine and Tony were available and not only welcoming but willing to do what was necessary to make our stay comfortable. I would stay here again on my next trip to Eastbourne.
