Friendly hotel

Posted 21-Oct-2014
The Sheldon is a friendly well run hotel. The welcome was warm, rooms were clean and well maintained and the staff helpful. The breakfast was spot on and set us up for the day, even the sun shone! I'd recommend and would be happy to stay at this hotel again.

Nice hotel close to seafront

Posted 14-Oct-2014
Pros: The location near the seafront and 10 minutes walk from the station.
Cons: At the last minute we had ordered a takeaway breakfast for my husband but it never materialised
Location: Near seafront, shops and station
Room was clean and comfortable; cooked breakfast was tasty and they catered for my gluten-free diet

Pros: See above
Cons: See above
Location: Close to centre with all Eastbourne has to offer.
Excellent hotel in a quiet location and yet not too far from town centre. Staff great and room perfect. Free and safe car parking at the rear of the hotel makes this the ideal location.

Excellent B and B

Posted 15-Sep-2014
Excellent B and B right in the heart of Eastbourne, only 2 minute walk to the beach. The hotel looks like it has been recently refurbished, the room we had on the 2nd floor was bright and airy, with an incredibly comfy bed. Breakfast was quick and very tasty, cooked to our order. Obviously a bar would have been the icing on the cake, but this is 'just' a B&B, so if this is what you require it ticks all the boxes. Will return on my next visit to Eastbourne.

All good apart from keep getting burned sausage!!

Posted 31-Aug-2014
Pros: Very clean and we like the design
Cons: Please can we get better sausage ?
It happened during the entire stay (2days) while we were there. Parking is small and it's entry is very small so if you try to park at night then you need to be extra careful.

Lovely hotel near the seafront

Posted 28-Aug-2014
A really pleasant hotel with very comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast - lots of things to choose from on arrival such as cereal, pastries, yoghurt and fruit, and cooked breakfast is offered - or pancakes, which I chose, which is a lovely alternative. The welcome was warm and the staff were always helpful. The room was huge with a spotlessly clean en-suite shower room. It was great having a kettle and tea bags too, though I hate UHT so we bought our own milk. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the room had a flat screen tv with freeview. All you could want in one place.

Unexpected Source of Delight

Posted 23-Aug-2014
Pros: Very centrally located. Very clean. Friendly staff.
Cons: The only drawback is the narrow driveway to the parking area behind the hotel, but nothing can be done about this.
Location: Great location within walking distance to the shopping centre and pier area.
A lovely old character hotel. As we walked along the hallways, we wondered what the room would be like! When the door was opened, it was fabulous - a very large bedroom, huge bed and beautiful bay windows letting in plenty of light. Hotel breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice.

Very late booking.

Posted 16-Aug-2014
I found that I couldn't get home that evening and wanted a hotel close by. Up popped the Sheldon hotel and was only 5 minutes walk from where I had been. Staff extremely helpful an altogether excellent experience.
