Brayscroft House
Ranked #31 of 75 Eastbourne B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 October 2009

Perfectly located close to the seafront, at the favoured west end of Eastbourne, the Brayscroft Hotel offers a welcoming and comfortable retreat from the hurly burly of everyday life. The friendly resident owners, Yvonne and John, really do go out of their way to ensure your stay is perfect.
The elegantly decorated rooms with their beautiful furniture, lovely paintings and wonderfully comfy beds give this small hotel a touch of luxury and after a good nights sleep another treat awaits in the dining room......a superb breakfast expertly cooked by John. The choice of menu is excellent offering everything from a range of traditional cereals, bowls of scrumptious seasonal fresh fruits, dried fruits and yoghurt. This is followed by a full English cooked breakfast - a real 'feast' that could set you up for the rest of the day and be perfect for anyone off on a good walk up to the nearby South Downs! If you're appetite is for something lighter you can always enjoy the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and there is plenty of orange juice, tea, coffee and toast. I don't eat meat but never once found my cooked breakfast 'wanting' in any way! We had a couple of evening meals as well which were equally delicious and if you fancy an 'out of season' stay that option is available all year .
The Brayscroft is within walking distance of the nearby theatres and restaurants and is about a 15 minute walk from the town centre.
We had a lovely stay and from the moment we arrived felt very much 'at home'. Yvonne and John really do go that 'extra mile' for their guests and it is that quality combined with the hotel's charm and excellent facilities that makes me certain we will be staying again!

Well, I haven't stayed in them all but I cannot imagine anywhere better. Spent 2 nights in August and wish it could have been longer. Although a single traveller I was given a beautiful twin bedded room, spotlessly clean with a delightful bathroom and very comfortable bed. In a quiet part of town so no problem getting a good night's rest , but close to all attractions.
Yvonne was welcoming and helpful without being intrusive and, as already said here, the breakfast was outstanding, full English or smoked salmon and scrambled egg, fabulous.
Can't speak highly enough of the Brayscroft and its owners for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Brayscroft House. The owners were welcoming and the room very comfortable, clean and well furnished. Just off the main promenade at the Beachy Head end, it was convenient for walking from the hotel and also not too far to walk into the shops or along to the pier.

Parking proved relatively easy too since the hotel is just outside the restricted parking area.

Breakfast was excellent, although we had to leave very early on the second day. However a good selection of fruit and cereals were left out for us, and in fact the proprietor would have got up and cooked for us if we had wanted her too.

A good experience overall

I went to Eastbourne for a getaway weekend with a couple of girlfriends and we chose to stay at the Brayscroft Hotel. All the rooms are lovely - very comfortable and tastefully decorated, with a real attention to detail (the bathrooms were a highlight, in particular one room that has a traditional roll top bath once used by Virginia Woolf!).

The hosts (whose names I can't remember, sorry) were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure that we had a great stay. They took the time to find out what we wanted out of our weekend (in our case, an escape from city stress and to do a bit of walking), recommended a great local restaurant for dinner, and helped us out with ideas for walking (and taxis back as the weather wasn't the best!)

The breakfasts were fantastic - I can recommend both the traditional English breakfast and the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, and the seasonal fruit salad was lovely. I'd go back for the breakfasts alone!

Overall, a beautifully classy B&B with lovely owners who provide an unobtrusive but personal service to all their guests. Highly recommended!
