This was done last minute and was chosen because of the good reviews i saw. It is about 10 minutes walk from the station. A nice friendly welcome. We had the superior double on the first floor which also has a balcony. Nice large room with plenty of wardrobe space. The bed was very comfortable and we both slept well....

This is my second visit to the Sherwood. A warm welcome and very friendly hosts Carole and Bo. The rooms are very nice, clean and well equipped (in fairly traditional décor). Lovely breakfasts, great location and will definitely return.

I travelled to Eastbourne due to a family bereavement, and booked 4 nights at The Sherwood at the start of my stay. I stayed in a single ensuite room on a bed and breakfast basis. From the outset I felt very comfortable, with the hosts providing a warm and courteous welcome. The location is excellent,being very close to the seafront...

We had a great stay, the owners were very welcoming and helpful. Good size family room, very clean. Great breakfast served in the morning. Will definitely go back. The location is ideal, one minute from seaside and we could even see the sea from our room :)

This is a guest house in the old school style and we felt really at home here, even though it was just for one night. Everything is clean and well maintained. Very comfortable beds. Good towels and plenty of hot water. The beverage tray had the bonus of good sized mugs instead of cups with some nice biscuits too! We...

You booked via booking.com and paid a reduced 'room only rate' therefore no breakfast was included in your substantially reduced rate. I am glad you found the reception friendly especially as you checked in at 10 pm - 3 hours after our advertised check in time, with no prior warning. Hope you agree that your review is 'Nice but rather...

I stayed here the night before the Beachy Head Marathon. I emailed in advance regarding an early breakfast and was pleased to receive a swift and positive response. However whilst checking in I double checked and the gentleman seemed to know nothing about it and made me feel like it was a hassle. It took a while to find my...

Dear Guest, I admit I had a small problem to find your booking, it took a few minutes. If I forgot to say sorry I'm very sorry about that, I got stressed, there was no bad day! I thought I was nice by letting you have a Twin room instead of a single room as you booked and paid for....

Great location, permit vouchers given for your stay, room small but adequate. Breakfast was exceptional as was the hosts welcome and assistance during my stay. I was happy to be contacted by the hosts as soon as I left to say I had left items and had the opportunity to return and pick them up.

A one night stay for five of us after doing the 14 mile coastal walk from Seaford to Eastbourne. Very helpful early in the morning when we arrived during breakfast to sort out our parking vouchers, and a warm welcome on our return in the evening. Very comfortable rooms and a great breakfast with lovely service. An excellent B&B.
