The space

Awarded 1st place in The Independent's '50 Best B&Bs' (UK), this unique guesthouse blends stylish, contemporary self catering facilities with 4* services such as delicious breakfasts, indulgent beauty treatments and laundry. Newly refurbished and run by friendly ex-travellers, this is a great base for exploring Eastbourne, the South Downs, a wealth of historic sites and for day trips to London by direct train.

Relaxed and informal, The Guesthouse East is set in a beautiful Grade II listed Regency villa just a pebble’s throw from the beach and minutes from the bars, theatres, restaurants and attractions of Eastbourne.

There are seven individually-styled rooms, each designed to the highest standards with spacious bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms – plus free WiFi, TV/DVD, fluffy towels, toiletries, hairdryer, complimentary teas, coffees and even sweets. Smaller suites are twins or doubles, with larger suites accommodating up to 5 (some extra beds may be futons/sofabeds and may require friends to share a double).

Six of the suites also have their own private kitchens, giving travellers much more freedom than an average guesthouse. Each kitchen has a fridge with small freezer compartment, hob, microwave, kettle, toaster and pots/pans.

There are a few twin suites in The Guesthouse East, so please ask if you want to know which one is available and to view specific photos.

With kitchens in most suites, you are well equipped to look after yourself. But if you’re in need of some TLC why not indulge yourself at breakfast with a home-cooked full English or Carl’s legendary porridge, or even kick back and relax with an on-site massage, facial or other pampering treatment (book in advance). And if your clothing is looking worse for wear, you can get a load of washing done.

Parking is on street and you can buy special permits from Carl and Sarah for just £1 per day.

We had everything we needed here and more. The room was spotless, warm with attention to detail. The kitchen area made it so easy for us to prepare simple meals when we didn't want to go out in the evening especially with my wee one. There was even a separate area to sit and eat…

Friendly, outgoing mum-of-five. Moved to Eastbourne from Seaford after living in Spain with hubbie Tony who wanted a change from the corporate world and we bought a B&B by the seaside! We try to make The Guesthouse East a fun, informal place to be and with kitchens in most su…
