Everything perfect.... location, hosts and room. Bonus of a kitchen is really handy. Bear in mind no lift but we were in room 2 so only up one flight. We will return 😍

Feel at home by the beach.
WOW! What a stunning hotel! It felt like we were in our own apartment home right by the sea. We stayed for four nights in this luxurious hotel. It was a blessing having a kitchen, allowing us to make our own meals and therefore preventing us from spending a fortune on meals at restaurants. Unfortunately, there wasn't a microwave, just a hob, but we didn't need it so didn't bother asking for one. We wanted a bathroom with a bath and that is what we got, but it was disappointing that the shower didn't work properly, it came out more of a leak rather than a spray, but again, we prefer having baths so we didn't mind at all. This hotel was definitely the best hotel we've stayed in, and comfort isn't a strong enough word of how we felt about this place. This was home to us for four nights, and we so did not want to leave. We'll be back, for sure.

The Guesthouse East, A Perfect Place To Stay
The guesthouse east was a great place to stay. The owners, Tony & Lisa, were very welcoming and the facilities were excellent. The location was perfect, very near the seafront and perfect for our weekend break. We will definitely return before the end of the year!

10/10 Exceptional

The location is excellent - the beach is at the end of the street, and restaurants and shops are only a short walk away. Hosts Tony and Lisa gave us a warm welcome on arrival, and gave us a parking permit to use. Our room on the first floor was private, spacious and immaculately kept, with its own kitchenette and a modern bathroom. The bed was very comfortable.Tony recommended great restaurants nearby. This is great value accommodation, we would have loved to stay longer if we had more time. A top choice if staying at Eastbourne.
