Simple, clean guest house. Perfect for a short stay away. Central location right by the seaside and an ideal place to rest and freshen up after our 14 mile walk via the Seven Sisters from Seaford. Welcoming and helpful staff.

clean and safe
While the room was clean and comfortable, the furnishing and decor looked rather old. For breakfast you were given a table rather than being allowed to choose one yourself which was a bit odd. Breakfast was OK.

Tired but comfortable
The guest house was okay for one or maybe 2 nights but may not be somewhere I would stay for longer periods. The interior is quite dated and could do with a spruce up but to be honest it served us well for the one night that we stayed. A big plus is the close proximity to the theatres and only a five minutes walk to the town centre. The seafront is a minute walk away.
