Coast Guest Accommodation
Ranked #27 of 75 Eastbourne B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I loved staying at Coast. It is a lovely B&B and the owners are very friendly. When we arrived we were offered tea and cake, which was a lovely surprise!

We stayed in the 'yacht' room which we would highly recommend. The room has a sea view which is lovely and it's decorated very nicely, very clean and comfortable and a nice en-suite bathroom with shower.

The breakfast was great, the choice very wide and cooked to a very high standard. They also prepared a fresh fruit salad every morning, available to whoever would like some. I'm not usually a big fan of fruit salad but decided to try some and was so glad I did- it was delightful and has inspired me to make some at home!

The location is also good, very very close to the beach and car parking right behind the B&B. I noticed a bus stop very nearby also which could be useful. We enjoyed exploring Eastbourne and went to Brighton on the train which was very easy and good value. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to revisit sometime in the future.

Lovely holiday in a beautiful area. Everything was perfekt. Vivien and Mario were excellent hosts. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom well equiped, modern and clean. The English breakfast was delicious, especially the fresh fruit salad.
I was made to feel very welcome

Had a lovely weekend staying at Coast. The Castle Suite was perfect for our family of 4, beautifully clean and very comfortable. Mario and Vivien are excellent hosts, very helpful and friendly and the breakfasts were delicious!

We arrived in the car park to be met by Mario with a very warm welcome. We were shown to the Lighthouse room which was bright, light, airy and spotless. We had taken up the offer of tea and cake in the conservatory where we were entertained by the local summer carnival passing by outside. Nothing was too much trouble, Mario and Viv are perfect hosts Breakfast was superb. A perfect place to stay and would not hesitate to recommend or return. Thank you Viv and Mario..

Further to the other excellent reviews on this site I must agree that Mario and Vivien are excellent hosts - I enquired in my booking whether we'd be able to check in early and that wasn't a problem at all. We received a very warm welcome with promise of a pot of tea plus home-made cake and I must say that it's that level of attention to detail which really sets it apart from other B&Bs. The couple's local knowledge was also fantastic and the suggestions of places to visit and eat in were amazing.

The room itself, Anchor, was a twin room charmingly decorated in a mauve colourway with nautical accessories. The shower room was spacious and well fitted and everything was spotlessly clean.

One of the issues we did suffer from was noise in the late evening/early hours of the morning. There was a room located above us on the second floor of this Victorian/Edwardian building and the occupants were very stompy indeed. I'm not sure whether this was due to the fabric of the property or that they were wearing concrete footwear, but it I must confess that it wasn't pleasant. We retired to bed about 11:30 and the couple(?) above arrived back at about 11:45 and the gentleman talked loudly until about 12:45 - I'd put in my ear plugs way before that, but my husband heard it all. Maybe Mario and Vivien could provide a written sentence or two asking guests to keep the noise down after midnight as part of their welcome manual? I agree that it shouldn't be necessary, but clearly it is.

The breakfast the next morning was as good as we'd expected. The food was truly scrumptious and the waitress was efficient, jolly and really friendly. Everything was cooked to perfection by Mario who's a professional chef and it really showed! I was a greedy so and so and had seconds of toast and coffee, which was readily forthcoming. We sat in the conservatory at the front of the property which overlooked the sea and reveled in it! Hurrah for the south coast.

Thank you for your kind comments and sorry for the quality of sleep due to the noise of the other guest. I can only think it was a single young man who was visiting his grandfather in hospital and he was on the phone and walking aound the room.We will certainly try and su ggest something in our literature about considering other guests .

As enjoyable as last time - lovely to be remembered by our hosts! Back to our spotless room! Little details ensure a relaxed, enjoyable stay. We were met with tea + cake; the excellent breakfast fresh fruit salad was again perfect. I managed one cooked breakfast which came with the egg decorated with freshly picked herbs. More toast + coffee were always offered. Mario + Vivien were always quietly attentive; have a good knowledge of the area and 'What's On.' A few steps to the sea, a short walk to The Pier. There was plenty of outside seating in the little courtyard; carefully tended plants around, though we didn't have the time to enjoy it! We just felt relaxed, part of the family on this second visit and hope to be back next year for our Folk Festival. Many thanks to them for an enjoyable stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Coast in the "Castle suite" We have 3 girls, 15, 11 years old and a 3 month old baby. The twin room was perfect for the older girls as they had their own TV and DVD player and it had lots of lovely girly nick-nacks which they loved the favourite being the love heart mirrors. The beds were really comfortable and we all slept very well including the baby, we were provided with a cot complete with a mobile. The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious and on the 2nd morning (we only planned to stay one night but extended as we felt so at home) Vivian suggested a pancake instead of the full English breakfast for our middle daughter which she really appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble for Mario and Vivian, they even spoke to us in Swahili :-) We hope to be able to come back again in the summer and enjoy the beach a little more although the sun did come out for us enough so we could enjoy the view from the Conservatory. Thank you very much for looking after us and making us feel at home in your guest house. Asante sana.
