We booked this as a well needed break after the madness of Christmas... found this guest house by mistake, and glad we did. The location is fab, the rooms, comfortable and clean, breakfast is brilliant, service amazin, and price very reasonable. an enjoyable couple of days, we will return in the near future.

My partner and I stayed at the Eastbourne for three nights over New Year, having spent the last two previous New Year's in the Lakes. Our breaks in the previous two years (in Windermere and Ambleside) were excellent and the hosts had gone to real efforts to make sure their guests had a memorable stay over New Year and we have since recommended them to friends and family. It's the extra personal touches that make B&B's and guest houses more appealing over hotels. Unfortunately the same can't be said about the Eastbourne. On arrival we were told via the intercom that the owners were at their other B&B and we could let ourselves in and go straight to the room. On booking we were asked whether we had any special dietary requirements at which point we requested vegetarian and gluten free options. At breakfast we were told that we would have to bring our own gluten free options. Had we known that beforehand we would have done! Compared to other places we have stayed in the area we wouldn't say that it warrants four stars. The stay was adequate but nothing special, which was a shame.

A lovely guest house with very nice rooms and super friendly hosts. We stayed in one of the King rooms for a couple of nights and it was great. The room was very clean and spacious; bathroom had shower gel, shampoo and conditioner (unfortunately there was no toothpaste, which I found a little strange). For us the price was most reasonable, especially since the breakfast was such a big portion, they didn't skimp out in that area.
It's also located in a good place, whether you are looking for a quiet place to stay, or if you want to visit the local attractions. Eastbourne sits just outside the town, so it's a short walk to the shops for food or other things and the Beatrix Potter Attraction is about 10 mins walk away.
Highly recommended.

Eastbourne guest house is in a perfect location, as it is on a road off the main road going through the centre of Bowness, so you are right in the middle of the centre without any noise of traffic or people at night. It was easy to find, and the Eastbourne guest house provides you with your own parking permit. When you arrive you need to press the buzzer inside the porch, this was answered quickly and we were soon greeted by a polite efficient lady who talked us through the basics, the area, and the near by walks. She then showed us to our room which we were more than happy with. The room was modern, clean and had a tv and it's own bathroom. The mix between the great location and the comfy bed meant we had a fantastic night sleep! Breakfast was served between 8.30 and 9.30 , there was a buffet table with croissants, cereals and juice and a separate menu for the cooked breakfasts which were delicious! We would definatly recommend anyone to come here as it is clean, quiet, and relaxed. It is a well ran establishment by two very friendly owners and was the perfect mini break for us!

booked a single room and was given king size bed. Was a little late for check-in, but the owner waited for me. Very friendly and helpful.
Room was on second floor and no lift. Everything else was perfect.
