“Log Fire & Comfy Sofas:enjoyment regardless of the weather”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

My Husband & I decided to extend our stay in Eastbourne for a couple of days as a result of the most inclement weather in recent memory.
We were most fortunate to book into Bassets House and found our hosts, Catherine & Howard, most welcoming.
Our sea view room and ensuite were of an excellent standard including towelling, bed linen and toiletaries.
On arrival we were very plesantly surprised to find ourselves being invited to use the very elegant and comfortable guest sitting room with blazing log fire and comfortable sofas. -home from home .
We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts cooked to prefection by Howard.

We are so looking forward to our next return visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of the same high standard but rooms 4 & 6 ( previously room 7) have sea views...

My husband and I recently stayed at Basset's guest house with our old friends Howard and Catherine. Despite atrocious weather our hosts contrived to ensure our stay was perfect: from the smart and spacious rooms to the delicious breakfast. The house is indeed elegant with every facility available. We are certainly looking forward to our next stay at this first rate place.

Room Tip: The rooms at the sea side are wonderful.

My family met up for the New Year holiday - including our two very young grandchildren. We had three very spacious rooms - all excellently fitted out with ensuites.
The guest house is located on the sea front and we had a great view of the sea and the distant channel traffic. Daytime and nighttime there always seemed to be something of interest.
Our hosts made us very welcome in their huge lounge area - super sea views and a roaring log fire. This is the way a guest house should be - comfortable bedrooms and a feeling that it's home from home.
The final touch from our very friendly hosts was a superb breakfast.

Room Tip: The seaview rooms if you want to be close to the the great history of the country as an island race.

I booked two double rooms for family members during their stay in Eastbourne.

The guest house benefits from wonderful views and is located right in Eastbourne seafront. There are bus routes located on the main road and the town centre is only a ten minute walk.

The owners are friendly and so welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble - they even had baked homemade biscuits for each room.

Breakfast was fantastic with a wide selection of choices. I must say that the cooked breakfast was particularly delicious.

The rooms were also of a very high quality. Luxurious bed linen, towels and furniture.

I could not recommend this guest house enough. If you are looking for a high quality place to stay in Eastbourne for a reasonable price then look no further. I would not hesitate to book again or to recommend to any of my friends and family.

I recently spent a weekend with friends at Basset's. We had a great time! Howard and Catherine, the new owners, could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The breakfast choice was huge and beautifully cooked and the bedrooms were elegantly furnished, the bed so comfortable I actually slept right through! The bathroom was beautifully appointed and everywhere was SPOTLESS. I shall certainly return!

Room Tip: I had the one on the ground floor at the back, it was so comfy. My friends had a lovely bright one a...

After a year, we came back to Eastbourne to spend a few days in this beautiful town. Of course, we also wanted to come back to Audrey and Wolfgang. Same B&B, other room: last year we were in room 7, this time in room 4. Again: a beautiful lovely decorated room with a stunning seaview. Breakfast is awesome with cereals, fresh cut fruits, yogurts, and then toast, sweeet breads and cooked full English breakfast. Every morning you can choose what you want to eat. Audrey and Wolfgang help and support with their knowledge about this beautiful area around Eastbourne.
It is very close, only a few meters, to the wonderful seaside, where you can walk for more than 4 miles along the promenade.
We really can recommend this beaufitul B&B to everybody and hope, to come back again. Thank you both for your kind hospitality.
