“Overnight stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Everything was first class. Andrew and Angela made us very welcome and clearly take a great pride in their business. Their home is fresh, modern and spotlessly clean with a lovely Mediterranean feel. Breakfast was delicious! Thank you for a lovely stay and we will definitely come back. Sharon & Mike C (26th April 2014)

We arrived late to a very friendly greeting and a lovely clean room. Although we only stayed one night we would definitely go back - it's a sweet and tidy house that is much nicer than the nearby hotels and very well located near to the seafront. The breakfast was delicious and accomodated my dietry restrictions - well done!

I arrived late, but got a cheery welcome from Andrew and Angela. The room was very clean and tidy, warm too. The back garden was compact but neat with a nice look to it. The whole house from what I saw, was tastefully decorated, modern and fresh. I didn't take the cooked breakfast due to work constraints, but had a good selection of cereals and drinks to choose from. Parking was basically finding a spot out on the street, but the area felt safe so wasn't an issue.

Room Tip: Ask the owners!

We enjoyed our stay here located so close to the promenade and town centre yet very quiet. The decor throughout was very good. The bedroom was very clean and comfortable although perhaps a bit on the small side, while the shower room was spacious and attractively decorated. Water pressure was rather low, but sufficient and perhaps not a bad thing from the "green" point of view. Breakfast was really good, with an excellent choice available. Andrew and Angela are very helpful and friendly.

We continue to stay with Andrew and Angela whenever we visit Eastbourne, because they are, as the song goes "simply the best". Terrific value, spotless, comfortable bedrooms, wonderfully warm welcome, all breakfast tastes fully catered for, with fresh fruit, croissants, home-made breads, jams, cereals and, of course, everything up to the "Full English". Great location and lovely house, with a very tranquil ambiance. We very highly recommend Gyves House to everyone. Thank you, Andrew and Angela!

We found Andrew and Angela very personable and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Gyves house is a lovely home in a great location. The room was fairly spacious and very clean. The only negative was the water pressure, which was quite poor on the 1st floor, but we could have just been unlucky.
Breakfast is very nice and locally sourced and the choice includes a home made bread, home made yoghurt, pastries, cooked breakfast and organic coffee.
Would recommend!

I stayed here just prior to an interview and the host was very friendly and a mine of supportive information. The breakfast was delicious and the room spacious, comfortable and very clean. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to be near the sea but quiet.
