The Guesthouse East

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Awarded 1st place in Independent's '50 Best B&Bs' - best Eastbourne location – all rooms ensuite – most suites have kitchens – up to 5 per room. 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.

Accommodation Information

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 (superior private rooms) also have their own private kitchens, giving travellers much more freedom than an average guesthouse.


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.

Location Information


From the M25, take the M23 to Brighton, continue on the A23. Just before Brighton take the A27, sign-posted Lewes/Worthing. Follow the A27 to Lewes. You will soon see signs for Eastbourne. Continue along here for about 40 minutes. As you approach Eastbourne, follow brown tourist signs for the seafront (crossing lots of roundabouts). When you get to the seafront continue to Eastbourne pier. Drive past the pier and you will see the Mansion Hotel on your right, when you see this, turn right into Hartington Place. We are number 13, opposite the Vernon House Hotel.


Directions as above, but you join in already on the M23


There is parking directly outside our hotel in Eastbourne and we have vouchers available to guests – just £1 per day. The Trinity Place NCP car park is on the next block to ours - if you wish to park here, turn right before you get to the Chatsworth Hotel.


Follow Terminus Road towards the seafront. Before reaching the seafront, at a crossroads with TJ Hughes department store (on your left), take a right turn on to Trinity Trees. Take your second left on to Hartington Place - we are number 13. Or grab a taxi outside the station if your bags are heavy...
