“Welcoming”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

We arrived for our very short stay early on a Saturday afternoon. We were made to feel very welcome, and almost like visiting friends not strangers.
The room we were allocated was blind friendly - not always the case in smaller hotels and guest houses, and we have already booked to go back there later in the year.
Breakfast was extremely tasty, and very well presented with a good choice of cereals fruit juices and fresh fruit, and the "full English" was great.

We stayed at the Far End Guest House in March 2013. Whilst the rooms needed a make-over they were clean and comfortable, rather East meets West. The welcome was warm and friendly and Qi was happy to obtain our particular requests for breakfast. The traditional cooked breakfast was first-rate, and generous. I liked the lounge on the first floor with the bedrooms; it was roomy and comfortable, with a large screen TV, and a lovely view across the seafront. I am sure that, once Qi gets herself known, she will do very well.
It was a pleasure to stay at the Far End after the previous 3 days unhappy stay at a so-called boutique B&B at Bosham. Much better value too.

I stayed at the Far End Guest House in Eastbourne in October 2012 and I would be very happy to go back. My first impression was excellent and it carried on with a very clean and warm room, warm and clean bathroom and excellent breakfast. I did ask whether I could share the succulent evening meal Qi was preparing in the evening and I may take her offer next time. I like the location because it is away from the centre and I felt very much like a welcomed guest.

First I have to say you will be met with the warmest of welcome's ,and a desire to please .
Far End is under new management taken over just 2 week's before I arrived on the 20th July .
Yes it is in great need of a make over old carpets ect ect. However the bedding was spotless also the towel's, shower was spotless.
The breakfast was very good .All I can say is it deserve's a chance after the previous negative review's and if it has already improved 100% on customer service well perhap's the rest will follow.
I thank QI who now manage's Far End for the terrific looking after she gave us .We were a party of 10 staying in Eastbourne for a wedding ,she is customer service at it's BEST.

Met at the door with 10 mins of rules , choice of two rooms when I got there cold damp and sizable or small and cold . the view over the park was lovely . just seen the other reviews and they are right its owners think they are somewhat better then you . they have a number in the hall to call If you have any trouble or want anything its a dead line no one answers it, I tried three times just to see , my advice to these people is get in someone who can talk to guests and give it a make over

Had a rough night due to poor heating which is low during the evening and totally swtiched off at night. Slept only 4-5 hours consequently. Clean room but strong smell of old furniture and stuff. View from top bedrooms are nice.

- Everything ruined due to bad cold night. Will not recommend.

Room Tip: Top rooms have good sea view but smell and cold night ruined the experience for me.

Good location, good parking off road for motorcycles, a very good breakfast. However, the host is somewhat indifferent to guests. The room had a strong smell of mould, the decor is dated, the tv very basic, towells not changed daily, heating not switched on so you could not dry towells (we were told no heating if you have the window open!) We did get replacement towells eventually but we were not popular. I think we witnessed perhaps the worst hosting skills ever and regrettably cannot recommend this guest house, I get the feeling this is a place in decline. What a shame, Eastbourne and its visitors deserve better!

Room Tip: Don't bother but if you really have too, try to get a room at the rear as the main road is quite...
