“does exactly what it says on the tin”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

nice stay the price we paid was very fair indeed, nice breakfast only down side for us at the end of the day we could have done with a night cap so an honest bar or something along those lines would have been ideal.

Usual greeting on arrival press the intercom on the front door greeted by Martin the owner follow the instructions someone will be down to meet you ASAP. In our case marina was already there. We were shown to room 10, our usual room lovely modern, cosy, perfect for the two of us ! Bathroom did smell ever so slightly of cigarette smoke ? As non smokers this did stand out every time we entered our room ! This could have been from previous guests? Parking permit provided which makes things easy. Breakfast fantastic and added bonus ! Full English with toast croissant tea coffee all the juices and cereals you can eat and drink ! We swapped some items on the breakfast not a problem and veggie option available ! Perfect for us ! Reasonably priced, clean and modern room, with a big breakfast ! Will be returning next year !

Me and my girlfriend stayed at Eastbourne Guesthouse in Bowness for 3 nights.
We stayed in room 8 and it was perfect, very clean, smart bathroom, massive bed and is cleaned daily. This would be perfect for any couple.
The breakfast was another plus, we tried nearly everything on the menu over the 3 days and it was all excellent.
10/10 for this visit, look no further!

Very rude owner, we had booked through bookings.com, and where not told it was adult only hotel, we had booked 2 rooms for 2 adults and 2 children age 5 and 8 years old, on arrival the owner spoke loudly to us in front of other guests, not once offering us an apology for cancelling the booking. When i said we where not told it was a adult only establishment, he said yes you where it is on the website. Why bookings . com allowed us to book I dont know. we where left in school holiday time to go looking for a alternative hotel which we did find 2 rooms at The Bellsfield hotel, where we where treat with compassion. I would never book at Eastbourne guest house again, He needs people skills, we had suffered a tragedy in the family and had booked the guest house to take the children to the animal park to cheer them up.

The guest house itself is very clean and welcoming. What confused us was the way the heating and power to come of the lights was on a timer. We came in from a walk and the room was very cold so my partner asked the housekeeper how we could turn the radiator up but she said the heating will not come on until 7pm. It's fair enough to be a bit stingy if it's your own home but not really fair for paying guests. It was also very hard to find a good reading spot when we only had a window in the corner the the lights wouldn't turn on until it was already dark outside! On the second night the fuse blew. My boyfriend called the owner (he told us to call 'anytime') and we were made to feel like complete nuisances. I don't think the owner enjoys working with people too much as he was very awkward at breakfast time too.
The location is brilliant, only about a 10min walk to the waterfront and loads of nice restaurants around.

The Room was very cosy and clean, and as we went when it was cold and windy it was lovely to get back to the warmth and friendliness of the Hotel.
The owners where very nice, and the breakfast was lovely, whether you wanted full English or continental, there was plenty for all, and the owner was always ready to offer more if you wanted it.
Pipes where a bit noisy, but that's what is expected with Victorian houses and it added an extra touch :)
All in All we had a lovely 3day stay, and we where made very welcome with the host's, Thankyou

My boyfriend and I only had a couple of days away at this hotel and we found it to be very welcoming and accommodating. Situated in a great location, close to the local village, we had no issues at all. Would book here again!
