“what an unexpected find”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

we stayed at this guesthouse after we had been rudely turned away from a nearby guesthouse due to overbooking error by the landlady.Andrew welcomed us with a large pot of tea and made us feel at home. Andrew and Angela have recently started running Gyves house and what a great job they have made of it. The room Andrew had for us was spacious with a large bathroom and spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable and had an excellent duvet and feather pillows, large TV and tea and coffee facilities were provided. The following morning the full English breakfast was freshly cooked and huge,it set us up completely for the rest of the day. Gyves house is a stone's throw from the seafront and close to the town .We have no hesitation in recommending this guesthouse.When in Eastbourne again we shall certainly be visiting Andrew and Angela again.

This B&B was well run by novice B&B owners, it was extremely good value, the rooms were lovely and the breakfast cooked very nicely. It is in a great location, a stone's throw from the sea in easy reach of everything, but quiet so we had an excellent night's sleep. We would recommend it highly.

Very friendly, and some lovely local pubs. Very accomodating, clean and tidy and conveniently right next to the sea! Excellent range of facilities and they're happy to make a coffee or a brew for you if you are waiting to be collected.

Gyves house is a very friendly and comfortable guest house. Our party of five stayed in a double, a twin and a single room. All the rooms were well equipped with tv's,coffee making facilities and en-suite bathrooms.
Breakfast was excellent and set us up very well for our days walking. Andy and Angela were very helpful and we would definitely stay again.

Andrew and Angela are creating a wonderful experience for their guests. Informal yet highly professional. The rooms are kept to a high standard of cleanliness and the breakfasts, with home-made bread and yogurt were delicious. Eggs cooked to perfection and everything that a Full English should be. Only 30 yards from the sea front and with loads of activities and trails to explore, this is an ideal place to base yourself for a South Coast Break.

Room Tip: Speak to the owners, they are honest and approachable - they will give you the best room available.
