“Simply perfect.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

We have just spent the most lovely and relaxing weekend staying at 17 Wilmington Square. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners Tony and Janine. Our very spacious room overlooked the gardens and sea and was beautifully decorated, bright and airy and spotlessly clean.Breakfast was scrummy with plenty of choice. The hotel is perfectly situated and we thoroughly enjoyed the short stroll to the seafront to enjoy a leisurely walk and a hot chocolate at a bar on the beach. We have stayed here before and have never been disappointed at our choice. Hope to visit again soon. Simply perfect.

We were trying to find a hotel for a quick one night break and booked on line with another hotel in Eastbourne. Unfortunately we managed to book a hotel which was closed!! The proprietor directed us to Janine and Tony's place and we couldn't have been happier with the outcome.

The room was spacious and very nice and the breakfast first rate. Janine and Tony gave us helpful advice on restaurants and places to visit.

The location just off the seafront was ideal and the bed very comfortable.

Even the tea and biscuits we ordered turned out to be complimentary!!

It was only a 1 night stay, but after a six hour journey and meetings it was a a great welcome. The room was light and spacious with a great view toward the sea. It was relaxing to spend time in and finish off some work. Tony gave me some good advice where to eat for the evening and the cooked breakfast was really good! Will be booking again next time I'm down there.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a sea view.

We spent 2 nights here and loved it. It was the first time we had taken our dog with us to a Hotel and Janine and Tony couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful, Nothing was too much trouble and the dog wasn't made to feel a nuisance. We were close to the town and the sea front was just across the road. We had some lovely weather and enjoyed lovely walks along the sea front.
Breakfast was delicious, fruit salad was as fresh as fresh could be and the homemade granola was gorgeous. Fried breakfast was wonderful.

Would definetly stay again.

My other half and I decided at the last minute to get away from london for the august bank holida weekend. we literally stuck a pin in the map and bingo eastbourne it was! i picked no. 17 as a result of the excellent reviews, and we were not disappointed. it is ideally located near to the seafront. the owners, janine and tony were lovely and very welcoming. our room although small was perfectly formed! it was clean and cosy and very comfortable. our breakfast was as previously reviewed. good choice and well cooked. janine gave us some helpful ideas for our evening meals which we took up and again we were not disappointed. all in all, a lovely weekend (eastbourne was lovely) and i would definately recommend a stay at this establishment. we shall be going back for more of the same. well done janine and tony - keep up the good work!

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.
