Right from a very warm welcome to a fond farewell we were treated with great kindness and hospitality that was genuine and made us feel like part of the family. Spotlessly clean and breakfast to die for!

Eastbourne was the finale of our South Downs Walk and this was a lovely end to our trip. Comfy beds and spotlessly clean rooms and,as reported many times, a truly great breakfast. The hosts were very pleasant and recommended a Thai restaurant at the end of the road which was excellent. Eastbourne we will be back (but maybe we will...

We returned to Gyves House and Eastbourne recently with friends. This time, the weather was glorious and the welcome we received from Angela and Andrew at the Gyves House was equally as lovely. Andrew helped us to plan our hike through the nearby South Downes/Seven Sisters park, while Angela provided us with a customized and quite delicious breakfast on both...

It was the fourth time we stayed there and it was brilliant as always. Especially the Full English Breakfast is something to look out for. Unfortunately we had to leave after one week. Thank you and see you next year...

I enjoyed an awesome breakfast in this tidy and clean guesthouse. The room was really nice and the ensuite bathroom was fine as well. If only the water pressure was a little bit higher - it would make the experience even better.

It's true, the breakfasts are super - the homemade granola and organic sausages particularly deserving of praise. But also the pillows in my room. As someone who spends a lot of time in hotels and B&B's, it was fantastic to find somewhere that has soft feather pillows - rather than just hard blocks of foam. With this and the fact...

We had a very nice time in this B&B for a 1.5 day week end in Eastbourne and the surroundings. We have been very nicely welcomed by the owners, who have been nice to give us tips about what to visit and where to eat. The house is well maintained and nicely decorated. Bedrooms are of a nice size and...

My fourth time at the Gyves House and again a fantastic, relaxing stay. Once a year I come here as part of a group of German teachers. One of the reasons to make these trips to Eastbourne is Gyves House. The breakfast is marvellous and delicious, everything including the granola is homemade and prepared freshly for the guests. You can...

Still our number 1 b&b - Andrew and Angela are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. Very comfortable rooms, delicious breakfast. Impossible to praise them too highly. Close to the seafront, Marine pub (check out the Christmas lights), lots of good restaurants, shops, theatres.

We are a group of German teachers and we can only recommend Gyves House. The rooms are designed with love for details, the breakfast is delicious, the host helped us whenever he could and the house has the perfect location to meet the students at the pier. We enjoyed our trip very much! Thank you!
