“Pleasant stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

Came to Eastbourne to get away and see the sights of Beechy Head and the local area. The people who owned it were warm, welcoming and helpful when asked about good places to eat/drink/visit. Everything was very clean, breakfast was delicious and we had very fast service and attentive staff. The rooms are very spacious and the beds were comfortable. It was in a quiet residential area that was a quick and cheap taxi ride to anywhere we needed to go. Lovely place, highly recommend it and would stay there again!

I stayed here on Saturday night/ Sunday morning along with my husband, 5 year old son, our little dog and my sister. We had a family room and a double room (for my sister), each with en-suites. We were visiting Eastbourne to attend a wedding on the Saturday afternoon at the bandstand.

What a perfect place for us to stay. We arrived Saturday afternoon to get ready for the wedding. The owners were welcoming and attentive from start to finish, friendly and warm too. Our rooms were gorgeously furnished and the family room especially large enough to accommodate us all very comfortably. The sheets and bedding were soooooooooo crisp, clean and soft. My little boy said it was the best bed ever! The bathroom was also well supplied with everything we needed, even flannels (although we had taken our own).

They clearly welcomed dogs and offered us items such as bed, bowls etc (we had though arrived prepared!). Upon request we were reassured that our dog could stay in the room whilst we went to the wedding - indeed Julie (owner of the guest house) even checked on him early evening to make sure he was ok.

In the morning the breakfast room was bright and relaxing ... the music playing was a lovely touch. The breakfasts were delicious and as a vegetarian I had the best veggie sausages ever. Tomatoes, eggs and mushrooms also cooked to perfection! My husband also enjoyed his full english breakfast and our son was over the moon with his special bowl, plate, cutlery etc.

Extra details also helped such as the access to colouring books and crayons.

As/when we come back to Eastbourne we would definitely book in here again (vacancies pending that is). Thank you for providing one of the best B&Bs I've stayed in!

A very friendly welcome from Julie and a very comfortable bedroom. Quite a large room with an enormous bed and a perfectly adequate bathroom. Although our room was on the ground floor at the front of the house nearest the road, it was surprisingly quiet and we both slept very well. Breakfast was good with everything freshly cooked. The Watts' only started this business in March 2012 but they deserve to do really well and I thoroughly recommend this B & B

This is a lovely late Victorian house and a very accomodating B&B for a family of five in two lovely bright rooms with an excellent hot breakfast (one of my husband`s bugbears is a `warmed up` breakfast!). Nice crisp bedding and very comfy bed and pillows. The towels were soft and the bathrooms had plenty of available washing supplies. Proprieters Julie and Andy were very helpful and friendly. We will definately be back next time we visit relatives.

I have just returned from a short business trip to Eastbourne and having never visited before was unsure of where to stay. I found the Bramble Guest House on Google and immediately like the look of it. I spoke to Julie when making my initial booking and found her friendly, polite and most helpful with directions. I was not disappointed, the guest house was excellent value for money, the room was tastefully decorated and very clean (unlike some I have stayed in). The room was well equipped with tea/coffee, iron and ironing board and flat screen tv which was perfect. Julie was a wonderful host throughout my stay and it really felt like I was staying in a friends house - even had the pleasure of meeting Lester (the family dog) who was just as welcoming. I would totally recommend the Bramble Guest House to anyone wishing to stay in Eastbourne, it is within walking distance to the beach and town centre so ideally situated. Julie and her husband have not long taken over from the previous owners and I have to say they are doing an excellent job - well done guys, keep up the good work, good Guest Houses are hard to find! I plan to visit again soon (this time for pleasure) and will most definitely be staying at the Bramble.

Large well appointed room, attentive hosts. Breakfast was a trifle on the slow and disorganised side, but nothing to really complain about and there was an excellent selection.
