My wife and I stayed for three nights at the Sheldon Hotel, we chose to stay here due to the excellent reviews given by others. It was my wifes birthday so I chose to stay in the 'Suite' (Room 15) which includes a King size bed, a bath and shower, a settee and fridge plus en-suite toilet.
The room was lovely, very large and airy with very high ceilings. Good selection of coffee / tea provided along with a kettle, milk waiting in the fridge along with water and fresh orange juice. An excellent assortment of shampoo / body lotion / shower gel also provided, along with lots of clean towels and also dressing gowns + slippers. Very high quality all round.
The settee was very comfortable and, being next to the window, a great place to sit and read. The TV worked fine, normal selection of digital channels available. The hotel itself is about 200 metres from the main road by the beach but this made it extremely quiet in the evenings and throughout the night, no noise from late night 'revellers'. The parking at the back is through a very narrow entrance but had plenty of space for everyones car and is very convenient. All in all, no complaints.
I must remark on the fact that I had mentioned in the booking that it was my wifes birthday and we were pleasantly surprised to come back to our room on the 'big day' and find a lovely bunch of flowers just waiting for her! A very nice touch and much appreciated.
All in all, no complaints. Breakfast was very good, great selection of cereal / croissant / juices, etc., plus an individually cooked breakfast. Room was always clean and everything topped up on a regular basis (including some lovely little cakes!) If you are looking for a nice, clean and peaceful place to stay in Eastbourne, with good wi-fi and near the beach but away from the noise of the seafront, stay here.
