What a lovely place and a lovely stay: friendly, efficient staff, clean and well maintained throughout, soft towels, comfortable beds, quiet rooms. A great location just off the sea front and handy for the pier, main shopping area and station. Great value for money, cannot recommend highly enough. Well done!

Excellent service, very quick and efficient booking in/out. Room (9) was very clean and tidy with a very comfortable bed. The Vernon House is ideally situated with the beach being approximately 150metres away and the town centre only 10mins walk. The NCP car park is opposite the Vernon but there is a good parking scheme organised by the local council... More

Nice clean guesthouse near the water and town centre. Friendly helpful staff. Quiet and comfortable. Old world charm. Just off main road one block from shopping area. Easily walkable from train and bus. Would easily book this location again.

We booked for a one night stay over bank holiday and chose this one mainly because of the ideal location, close to the pier and pubs and restaurants in Eastbourne, we treated ourselves to the luxury suite, it wasn't that luxurious but it was larger than most b & b rooms and very clean..comfy 4 post bed. Great breakfast in... More

Located just steps away from the town centre and the seafront, Vernon House is ideally situated for the holidaymaker and the businessman alike. I was attending a conference and stayed Friday through Sunday. I got to park right outside and as they run a parking scheme at a very reasonable £1 per day it was very convenient. My room was...

We have just stayed at the Vernon for two nights. The location was perfect, short walks to the town and seafront. The girl on reception and what seemed like all jobs was very good and helpful.

We stayed here for one night and booked the luxury suite for £ 100. The house looked new, the room, too. Separate lounge with TV, balcony, and even a TV you can watch from the bed! The only negative point, it was noisy! But I think it's the character of an older house that you can't eliminate. The staff was... More

We parked outside the Vernon Guesthouse on Monday and put a guest permit in the car. Unfortunately, we forgot to write the car registration details on the permit, invalidating it. The gentleman working at the Vernon Guesthouse noticed this and put a new permit on the windscreen for us, under the wiper blades to ensure we wouldn't get a parking... More
