I enjoyed four nights here while my wife was at a summer school elsewhere in Eastbourne. Prior to my arrival an exchange of texts allowed Tamara to be available to let me in and show me my room at a time to suit both of us. Having been very fortunate to get a (free) parking spot immediately outside the house...

Tamara (Loriston's Landlady) is an excellent host and a good source of local knowledge for eateries etc. Warm and friendly and very obliging. The bedroom and bathroom were very good and we understand that they are due for another make-over soon! What more could you want?

The Loriston guest house has to be the best in Eastbourne. Tamara and Michael are by far the best hosts we have met in a long, long time. The rooms are fantastic even more so the bed, this is comfort of the highest standard. Tamara and Michael go that extra mile to make your stay one to remember. Thank you...

We really enjoyed our stay and we were made to feel welcome from the minute we arrived to the day we left. Tamara's roots of the area go back to childhood and her good knowledge of Eastbourne and surrounding areas were invaluable in making the most of our 3-day stay. Our Lushington Suite was comfortable and quiet, yet steps away...

A very stylish and very well appointed guest house, just a few steps from the sea and within walking distance of the town. Breakfast excellent. Sadly felt very awkward re the apparent time limit on use of the shower.
