Lovely room. Very Clean and well thought out, nice and cool on a hot summer day. Great little touches like homemade flapjack and iced water in the room and accommodating of our unsure/late arrival time. fantastic breakfast. Well located and clearly a labour of love for the owners. Only improvement I'd make is to have hairdryers in the room -... More

Went to visit relatives and friends. Had a great welcome from Udo and Steve. Lovely clean and airy room (the chocolate room) with the seating area. Tea,coffee and great homemade flapjacks. Comfortable bed and breakfast had a good choice of cereals and well cooked breakfast with,again, homemade marmalade and jams. We took some home! A very pleasant three nights.

We'd booked two nights B&B at short notice. Everything was great, including a warm welcome, a comfortable bed and a delicious breakfast. Our hosts were friendly and efficient, paying attention to detail and the choice at breakfast was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. It's hard to say anything negative, very nearly 5*. Although for me the bed was a... More

So well named. A lovely welcome from Steve , an oh so comfortable room, flapjacks and lemon drizzle cake, home made marmalade and a delicious tasty breakfast, cooked to order, just right to start the day. I would definitely recommend and am most definitely going back for more! Just a short walk to the beach, which is quiet and unspoilt... More

We stayed at Ab Fab in July while looking for a house to buy - Steve and Udo are the perfect hosts; rooms are spotless and comfortable and the bathroom was large and a joy to use!

We spent 5 days here. It was an excellent base for exploring the Sussex coast, perfectly situated for public transport links. Steve and Udo were friendly and welcoming, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and breakfast was a delight each morning, supplemented by complimentary samples of Steve's baking skills later in the day. We can recommend this accommodation unreservedly, and... More

This was the second day of our London to Paris bike ride and definitely the most challenging. We were very tired so the welcome from Steve with ice cold water in a flask, plus tea and coffee and homemade flapjacks just hit the spot. The room was clean and well appointed with a lovely modern shower. Steve and Udo made... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Great little four star rated Bed & Breakfast, five minutes walk to the beach and the same to some quiet country walks with great views of the Downs. Both our rooms have stunning views of the end of Seaford Bay and to the ferry port of Newhaven beyond. We have tried to create somewhere we would like to stay. Comfy beds, fluffy towels, great showers and home-made biscuits or cakes in the room. And not forgetting locally sourced and / or supplied ingredients for our breakfasts. In short, our home to share with you. We look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful part of Sussex! ... more   less
