This B&B has fantastic reviews and I was delighted to be able to get a room for my daughter and myself for 2 nights. Our room, at the top of the building did indeed have a lovely sea view, but it did not compensate for the cacophony of the next room's plumbing, waking us with the noise on both nights....

Back to eastbourne for a rotary conference. Number 17 is the perfect place if you are visiting the Congress theatre or conference. No need for a taxi, no worry for a single lady (or man for that matter) walking home alone, very well lit in the square - although watch out for the uneven pavement if you are in your...

Beautifully decorated hotel with excellent service. Clean and tidy rooms with a super comfy bed. The breakfast had good choice and was a lovely treat! Also a great location situated moments from the seafront and not far from Eastbourne's town centre. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Eastbourne!

Here's a bed and breakfast which is far superior to most four star hotels, A nice large room with en-suite all very tastefully decorated and appointed. The Egyptian cotton linen and comfortable bed and soft, yet firm pillows allowing for a splendid nights sleep. We had a room overlooking the ocean on the third floor (no elevator so be aware...

When planning to stay in the same place for 3 weeks it's hard to know if you're making the right choice ..... Well, I can honestly say I couldn't have chosen better. From the first moment, the staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The hotel is so beautifully decorated; whoever chose the colour schemes and designs has...
