We had a couple of nights in Eastbourne visiting my mother and she recommended this B&B to us. The hotel owners were very friendly and personable and our room was nice and clean. We stayed in the room at the front with a nice 'balcony' that was easily accessible through a large picture window. The bed was comfy and the...

We had a lovely stay at the Boathouse, a great location, clean rooms with good facilities and a yummy breakfast. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating as my husband had to get up very early to run the Brighton marathon. They also very kindly posted back a phone charger which we left behind. We highly recommend the Boathouse!

Paid £80 for a family of four which turned out to be ok. To get a better rating, some basics could address that: A blind that closes so that you don't get woken up by the early morning light. Our double duvet smelt of smoke, which may have been from previous visitors. In this day and age, a credit card...

Having checked prices in the area we chose this b&b thinking it would be above average because of the price, so I'm rating it on a value for money basis. We paid £70 a night for Sunday and Monday in late October, which was more than others quoted. We got a room at the top floor which had a big...

We were made so welcome from start to finish that we felt like we were one of the family. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definately be using this place again when we visit for family functions in Eastbourne. Love the place and the people running it
