The Guesthouse East
Awarded 1st place in Independent's '50 Best B&Bs' - best Eastbourne location - all rooms ensuite - most suites have kitchens -up to 5 per room. This unique guesthouse blends stylish, contemporary self catering facilities with 4* services such as delicious breakfasts, indulgent beauty treatments and laundry.
Relaxed and informal, The Guesthouse East is set in a beautiful Grade II listed Regency villa just a pebble's throw from the beach and minutes from the bars, theatres, restaurants and attractions of Eastbourne. Newly refurbished and run by friendly ex-travellers, this is a great base for exploring Eastbourne, the stunning South Downs, a wealth of nearby historic sites and for day trips to London by direct train.
There are seven individually-styled rooms, each designed to the highest standards with spacious bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms, and six of these suites also have their own kitchen.
Smaller suites are twins or doubles, with larger suites accommodating up to 5 (some extra beds may be futons/sofabeds and may require friends to share a double). Plus there's free WiFi, TV/DVD, fluffy towels, toiletries, hairdryer, complimentary teas, coffees and even sweets.
With kitchens in most suites, you are well equipped to look after yourself. But if you're in need of some TLC why not indulge yourself at breakfast with a home-cooked full English or Carl's legendary porridge, or even kick back and relax with an on-site massage, facial or other pampering treatment (book in advance)? And if your clothing is looking worse for wear, you can get a load of washing done.
