A comfortable and convenient hotel

Posted 25-Mar-2015
Pros: The location, décor, staff and parking
Cons: Breakfast see above
Location: Walking nearby and close to shops theatres and the sea
The hotel had free off road parking which was a boon in the area. It was close to the sea and central Eastbourne but very quiet and no problem sleeping. The room and bathroom was well appointed and newly refurbished. A very comfortable bed. The only disappointment was aspects of the breakfast in that the fruit salad was out of a tin, they ran out of milk and orange juice but topped up when it was pointed out and there was not much of a selection of breads/ croissants etc but the cooked part was good.

Three days by the beach

Posted 02-Feb-2015
Pros: They serve a very good full English breakfast, and everyone was pleasant and accommodating. They let you do your own thing and never got in the way.
Cons: room heater didn't work. The bathroom one did, but not the main room. Didn't complain though but I am sure they would have fixed it.
Location: The pier was under construction but open. Chippy's on the pier/ best fish and chips in East Bourne. Drank and ate at the Buccaneer. walked a lot.
After being in London for four days, I wanted a quiet seaside town to relax in. I found East Bourne on the internet and after all my friends knew nothing about it, I thought it would be great. I am sure in the summer months it is roaring, but now in January, it was relatively quiet. It was exactly what I was looking for, but quite boring. I found the Sheldon on the internet at a very reasonable price and booked it. I wasn't expecting much, and it exceeded my expectations. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was quite nice and had hot water whenever I needed it. The owners where pleasant, although I never really spoke with them. They kind of stayed out of the way but there if you needed something, like a charger adapter. The town says "the sunny place in England", and I would have to say that at least the days I was there, it was sunny and relatively warm, reaching about 50 degrees every day.
