Really well situated - a 5 minute walk from the train station and right by the seafront. A very comfortable, pleasant room with everything I needed, including WiFi. Peaceful, really good value overall and lovely breakfasts. The Sheldon is run by a very helpful and friendly couple, and I'm glad I chose it for my break. I would be happy to stay here again! Thank you for everything.

We had a fantastic weekend in Eastbourne! The Sheldon Hotel was very clean, comfortable and very friendly! The breakfasts were lovely - you could have anything you wanted! I would definitely recommend this hotel for either a short break or holiday!

Stayed at The Sheldon for two nights in a single room, great location in walking distance of shops and the pier.
It was a nice size room with everything you need; complimentary toiletries along with tea/coffee making facilities etc. All the staff were very helpful and friendly, serving a really good breakfast! The free WIFI and parking was a plus too!

Would definitely stay again - thank you! :)

I booked in a group of 22 and we were very well looked after and taken care of. The rooms are fantastic and the food was great. The owners are gems, and we will definitely be coming back...best place in all of Eastbourne.

Stayed at The Sheldon for two nights. The availability of parking was a huge draw.My room was very comfortable and cosy. The complimentary toiletries and tea/coffee making facilities was also very nice. Breakfast was scrumptious and plentiful. Best thing of all was, Judith and Greg, the owners. They were very welcoming and friendly. I'll definitely be returning in the near future.
