Duncurin and family travelled down to Eastbourne to look in on an elderly mother-in-law for a few days over Christmas; we were a little worried about our ‘Turkey-and-tinsel’ break on the sea-front. As it turned out the Sheldon was a perfect choice with enthusiastic, energetic and hard-working hosts who did everything to make us welcome, comfortable and also cooked wonderful breakfasts to enable us to spend our days with my wife’s mum.
We’d booked two of the superior rooms, which are clean, bright and very spacious. Most notably our super bed was one that was both comfortable and large enough to ensure restful nights. Our girls, too, had a spacious comfortable room with twin beds; the large amount of space and the bright, restful lounge – all with free, unrestricted Wi-fi access allowed them to get on with their University work.
The owners of the hotel are attentive and friendly at all times, have a strong work ethic and deserve to do well. Although our main motive in travelling was to make sure that ‘granny’ wasn’t on her own – this wonderful hotel was a simply perfect choice to support and encourage us to do precisely that.
One tiny note, the large car park at the rear has a fairly low entrance and my little car complete with roof box just managed to scrape under with millimetres to spare; so, if you have a large car/roof box it would be better to park on the road.
