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 (supplement applies), 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.

Six of these 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 two family suites with kitchens in The Guesthouse East, so please discuss with us to ensure the one available will suit your needs. One of the suites sleeps up to four, with a kingsize bed, plus double futon for two children to share (or space in kitchen for a cot). The other suite has a main bed which can be kingsize or twins, double sofabed and space for a further camp bed or cot - so can accommodate families of up to 5. Availability permitting.

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 (supplement applies), 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.

Tony and Lisa were brilliant hosts. The room was perfect location to the seafront, bandstand, and some lovely restaurants. Each place to eat they recommended for lunch and dinner was delicious. Also when we arrived, the hosts were out for a minute, but another worker there let us…

We had the best time at the Guest House East! Sarah and Carl were very accommodating- even setting up an extra bed for one member of our party! The house was beautiful and very well kept and they were both a joy to be around! We hope to visit again sometime in the future! Kayleig…

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…
