“Excellent Hotel Very Good Value”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

A breath of fresh air! Recently modernised and very tastefully refitted. Friendly, clean and comfortable. I real 'Find'. Breakfast was a delight on the terrace. We'll definitely stay again. In easy reach of the town centre.

What a fantastic time, Catherine and Howard made us so welcome, greeting us by name, and being so helpful. The house is very comfortable and clean, the rooms are excellent, with the little personal touches that make them special. Nothing was too much trouble for Catherine and Howard, and breakfast was superb..thank you Howard.
We will definitely be staying again.

We have been using Bassets House for many years and were a bit worried when the old owners told us they were retiring. We need not have worried. Catherine and Howard have enhanced an already outstanding reputation. A friendly, pesonalble and caring couple they have ensured the outstanding Bassets repuitation and value for money will continue. We will be back and can give only our highest recommendation to anyone considering a visit to Eastbourne. Ken and Maria

Room Tip: All the rooms are of the highest quality but we find Room 4 especially nice. It has a great view,fro...

What a lovely stay we had here. Catherine and Howard are the perfect hosts who made us feel instantly welcome and at home. Our room was lovely and spotlessly clean, the breakfasts excellent and all located within a short walk to the pier. Next time we need to stay in the area Bassets will most definitely be our first choice.

Have just come back from Bassets House having spent 2 nights in the family room. Catherine (we had something in common our names) and Howard made us all feel welcome on our arrival, nothing was too much trouble , perfect location. Highly recommend and we will go back.

I'll keep this short - because the majority of reviewers have already stated why this small hotel / guest house is so good. Basically, it's down to the owners, Catherine and Howard, who provide a first rate accommodation service in every respect - lovely property, updated and decorated to a very high standard, well located, excellent individualised breakfasts, and an unsurpassed (in my experience) welcome . Apparently, this is their first season running Bassets House - long may they continue to do so successfully.

Visiting the UK for 4 weeks (from Aust) we mainly stayed in B&B's. Our 2 nights in Bassets in early May was unsurpassed for its overall package of quality accommodation and wonderful reception from the hosts. Now we are finally home we have only the very best memories based on the reception we received and the breakfasts, friendliness, travel advice etc.provided by the hosts.
