We spent 3 days here over Easter and found it lived up to our expectations in all respects. Janine and Tony run an excellent B & B in a very convenient location. Our room, not one with a sea view as we booked rather late, was very comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was first class with plenty of choice...

We will definitely be returning as we...

This lovely old house in the Devonshire Park area of Eastbourne was spotlessly clean, very well looked after and of a high standard. The breakfast was excellent with a lovely selection of fresh fruit, yoghurt and cereal, followed by a large plate of full English. The owners even went to the trouble of supplying gluten free bread for me as...

This establishment is equal to the best places I've stayed in. It's a fairly small guest house offering the quality of service normally only found in the best hotels. Prices are reasonable. The rooms are a good size, spotlessly clean with nice fluffy towels and crisp bed-linen. Breakfast is as good as the best anywhere. Car parking is convenient and...

On arrival at number 17 on Friday 21st March with a party of 8 friends and family we were made to feel welcome immediately; in fact Tony and Janine made you feel you were meeting up with old friends.

This B & B is easily one of the best that my wife and I have stayed in over a long period of holiday experiences. Our room was spotless, comfortable and furnished to a very high standard.
