We enjoyed a very pleasant experience with quality in every respect, except perhaps the shower which was more a dribble than a gush. Dunselma is one of those rare establishments where personal service and good old-fashioned hospitality have not been forgotten. We would recommend this guest house anytime; it is a gem!

Perfect place to stay in Bexhill on Sea. Just across the road from the De La Warr pavilion and close enough to the shops and restaurants. Very welcoming hosts who cannot do enough to make one's stay comfortable. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable.

We stayed here as we went to see a band at the De La Warr Pavilion, and it could not have been more convenient, literally across the road. They were also able to give us a parking permit for the DLW car park so we had no additional parking costs and could leave our car there overnight. Our room overlooking...
