Could this be the best B&B in the UK? Having recently travelled fairly extensively throughout England and Wales, I would put Gyves House at the top of the list.
I had reason to be in Eastbourne on and off for a total of 21 nights and always returned to this charming guest house. In total, I stayed in four different rooms, all of which were tastefully decorated, impeccably clean and equipped with every amenity.
Andrew & Angela could not have been more welcoming and helpful, from suggesting local events, walks and restaurants, to resolving my computer problems! And breakfasts were the best I have had anywhere. Menu choice was vast, service impeccable and the food of gourmet standard.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this excellent guest house to anyone looking for a top quality B&B at quite reasonable rates.

The delight of starting our day with the nutritious breakfasts, after a wonderful quiet night's sleep in the cleanest room ever and coming home to a warm welcome from our hosts made this the perfect week long stay for us. Andrew's local knowledge guided us to many memorable adventures. We would love to return one day.

Excellent customer service from the second I booked - I was in Eastbourne for a 10k race and was thrilled to be offered an early breakfast (fabulous banana porridge) and flexibility on check out! Single room was great value for money and perfectly sized for one, the bathroom was a little tight but had everything you needed. Andrew and Angela were superb hosts - highly recommended.

Just had an overnight stay, lovely room, very clean & tidy, nice sized bathroom, sadly not much of a view out the back. Breakfast was one of the best we have had in Eastbourne the home made items made it that bit extra special. Would stay again

We stayed for the weekend 11th to 13th October, the welcome was warm and friendly, the room was lovely with quality through and through. Made to feel at home , with the cooked breakfast (Full English and smoked salmon with scrambled eggs) the best we've had in a bed and breakfast. Overall an excellent stay and would recommend to anyone.

Excellent visit, rooms well equipped and presented, very comfortable. The breakfast was extremely well cooked and the choices very good. The hosts were very helpful in all respects. I would recommend this B&B also for its location.
