Mooi oud gebouw. Vriendelijk personeel.

Posted 02-Nov-2016
Pros: Erg mooie kamer. We hadden om een mooi uitzicht gevraagd, dit hadden we gekregen. Medewerker dacht na over een uitje.
Cons: Had voor 4 sterren een bad verwacht. Verder was het goed.
Location: We wilden wandelen over the seven sisters. Hotel was vlak bij.

Thank you. You need to request a bath if this is preferred, remember until we meet you we know nothing about you!

Not 4.5 star

Posted 27-Oct-2016
Pros: Good location and parking. Near Eastbourne pier and central. 5 mins from town centre.
Cons: Cold, few facilities, no luxury feel - it was meant to be a 4 star.
Location: Good location and parking

All rooms come with central heating available to you, you just need to turn your radiator valve to suit (as shown in the room information pack). Please don't confuse us with a 4* hotel, we are a family guest house, completely different star rating system!

Pros: Close to the center of town and the beach, in a quiet location.
Cons: It would have been better to have a TV in the communal lounge, but it was nice and peaceful without it !

We are know for being peaceful, and as we have a TV in every room so no need to have one in the lounge as well - you have the beautiful sea, beachy head to look at and of course all the events taking place in and around Eastbourne!

I visited Eastbourne to catch up with some friends as I used to live there. Found the Sheldon to be a comfortable, relaxed and all round decent hotel. Check in was fast and friendly, free parking was a huge perk. The room was spacious and very comfortable with all the essentials. The lift wasn't working but I didn't mind taking the stairs. My only gripes would be the poor wifi in my room and the fact that there was some hair in the bathtub that definitely wasn't mine. The breakfast was decent and filling. Proximity to the sea front was perfect and the local shops, bars and restaurants are a 5 to 10 minute walk away. I wouldn't have a problem staying here again.

Full information on the shower is on the alert notice next to it and in the pack. We did try to explain how to get the correct temperature. The showers have been fully tested by environmental health and passed.

Great location

Posted 30-Aug-2016
Quick check in and good on-site car parking. Room was clean, comfortable and well fitted. Simple outside door system made fiddling with keys unnecessary. Breakfast was reasonable; the cooked option covering the basics well. All in all an enjoyable stay.

Nice Hotel.

Posted 25-Aug-2016 on Lastminute
Pros: Clean and well located.
Cons: Lift working, a stronger WiFi signal , a Shower on the Wall.....as opposed to a hand held one which made it very difficult to wash thoroughly.
Location: Close to the Eastbourne Seafront and local Restaurants.
The location is good and it was vey clean. The Lift was not working regretfully and the WiFi signal was very weak. The staff were very pleasant although they forgot half our Breakfast order!!!

Good hotel close to the beach

Posted 06-Aug-2016
Friendly owners made us feel welcome as very helpful with local places to eat. Room was clean and had plenty of space for us and the children. We only stayed 1 night but had an enjoyable experience.
