BFB's Overview

Families can expect a warm welcome at this funky B&B, set just back from the seafront in increasingly cosmopolitan Eastbourne, not least because its friendly owners have two tots themselves. Carl and Sarah moved to the fabulously proportioned Regency terrace from London a few years ago and now have a young son and baby daughter.

Their insight into life with tots in tow is reflected in the handy list of baby and toddler gear provided (see Fast facts) and in the design of the six fabulously well-equipped guest suites, all of which have space for a cot/toddler bed and several with double futons, as well as standard double beds. Best of all, each suite has its own mini kitchen complete withfridge, hob, oven, sink, microwave, kettle, toaster and pots and pans - perfect for making and storing bottle feeds or cooking light meals. As most parents will testify, being able to knock up your own breakfasts and avoiding an early morning rush to herd everyone into getting up, washed and dressed before traipsing into a communal breakfast room, is a huge boost to relaxation in itself. Although, early risers can take up the option of continental breakfast served downstairs if they prefer.

Parents will also appreciate the little touches that make this award-winning B&B a cut above the norm. The in-room TV/DVD players and free WiFi are handy for early morning or pre-bed entertainment, whilst the hairdryer, fluffy white towels, toiletries, selection of complimentaryteas, coffees, biscuits, chocolates and sweets in placed in each of the suites makes a stay feel a little more indulgent. Plus, those who remember to bring their baby monitors can often enjoy a bit of downtime, perhaps a takeaway and a bottle of wine, in the communal dining room whilst little ones settle to sleep. However, its worth noting that only monitors with good range will be likely to work from suites on the top floors. The first floor suites should be fine.



Suite 5

Suite five is a warm, peaceful room at the back of the house on the top (third) floor - so this one is for those who don't mind climbing stairs. This family friendly suite has a super king-sized double bed, plus a double futon. There's a large kitchen with a table to sit at and families often ask for the cot to be set up in this room as it is windowless and helps babies sleep well, undisturbed by parents watching the television/DVD. There's a light, spacious bathroom, with a large shower (baby bath available). At the top of the building this one is for those who don't mind climbing stairs. There's a TV/DVD player, hairdryer, fluffy white towels, toiletries and selection of complimentary teas, coffees, biscuits, chocolates and sweets. Plus, parents are welcome to us ethe communal dining room to relax whilst little ones sleep. However, its worth noting that only monitors with good range will be likely to work from suites on the top floors and you will need to bring your own.

Extra child aged 0-5 is charged £5 per night, children aged 6-16 years old are charged £10 per night and it is £20 more for a 17+ year old sharing with 2 adults. Breakfast costs £9 for a cooked breakfast for adults and £5 for children (under 12). Continental breakfast are £5 per adult and £3.50 for under 12s., Please note that on weekends and during bank holidays there is a 2 night minimum stay.

Location Information

Eastbourne may once have been nicknamed 'Costa Geriatrica' but the growth and popularity of the university has seen the elegant south coast town undergo something of a renaissance with sophisticated nightlife, restaurants and shopping becoming an increasingly common feature. Added to that, the huge stretch of sand and shingle beach, Victorian pier with classic amusements and a modern indoor fun pool, makes it a great spot for a good old fashioned British break by the sea.


Guesthouse East has a prime location within a short stroll of the beach, promenade, pier and indoor fun pool, along with the tacky delights of Treasure Island - a must for would-be pirates! One of the town's best regarded fish and chip shops is just around the corner and, if babysitting has been pre-booked, a meal at the Mirabelle bistro within the Grand Hotel comes highly recommended. For those with the stamina, there are some fairly decent late night bars and clubs too; Guesthouse East's owners recommend The Loft, Hudsons and Bibendum.


Further afield, a great family day out can be had at highly regarded Drusilla's Wildlife Park, which recently won best attraction in the South of England. Or for a long lazy lunch, try the picture perfect Tiger Inn at East Dean, which has had praised heaped on its food, setting and atmosphere by the likes of The Times and Observer. the thatched pub sits on a village green, so there's plenty of space to let little ones burn off steam whilst enjoying the food.


Nearest Medical Services: Eastbourne Hospital with full range of hospital services, including A&E – 5 minute drive. Pharmacy / GP – Bolton Road – 3 minutes walk

Who owns this place?

Husband and wife team, Tony & Lisa, own, run and live at The Guesthouse East.

Tony's background is in marketing, much of it international, which helped feed his love of travel .

Experiencing a diverse mix of swanky but often soulless business class hotels and friendly but basic hostels shapes an opinion of what travellers need and want (and, as importantly, don’t).

Lisa has enjoyed a career as a mother, director for the guesthouse and chief family organiser.

A shift away from London has many advantages for a young family who love fresh air, the outdoor life and a beach at the end of the road!

What do they love about it?

We’re genuinely proud of what we’ve delivered as a boutique guest house in our four years here and the responses from our guests – receiving some lovely reviews on BabyFriendly and Tripadvisor, being placed 1st in The Independent’s Top 50 B&Bs and also the ‘Highly Commended’ accolade for B&B of the Year in the Beautiful South Awards.

Tony's blog has received some amazing awards including Lastminute.com’s Top 10 Travel blogs and a finalist in MyTravelmoney’s Top 10 lifestyle blogs.

What do the kids love about it?

What's not to like about being so close to the seafront and being able to scoot with the children along the promenade or fly a kite up on Beachy Head, rock-pooling at low tide or Blackberry-ing on the South Downs?

And there is definitely something in the sea air that seems to ensure a great night's sleep - perhaps it's all that charging around the beach!

We can help point out all sorts of local little gems - be them cafes, parks and activities to help make your break a special one and the kids happy - and let's face it, if they're happy, we're happy :)
