Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    The location was excellent - close to beach and food outlets.

  • Older travelers

    it was clean & comfy, the breakfast was first class and very convenient for the congress theatre,the shops,seafront

  • Couple

    The breakfast was excellent and well stocked. The only member of staff we met was very nice and helpful.

    The shower was cold and only a trickle came out. The double bed was actually two singles pushed together. TV only had 4 channels. Parking was on street and a nightmare to find a spot. Sliding door to bathroom was really rather unattractive.

  • Group of friends

    Very warm,friendly. I felt I had known them as friends. Homecooked food.Very central.Will be returning.

  • Older travelers

    owner helpful about parking, and advising on places to visit, breakfast very good . Friendly place

  • Older travelers

    The buffet style breakfast you could have as much as you liked and it was ones choice

    Uncomfortable bed

  • Older travelers

    The room was way too small, the picture of the "hotel" was deceiving and not as it was when we arrived. For the price which was paid I am definately not happy at all.

  • Older travelers

    Convenience of our stay but the room was small and poorly furnished..

    The layout of the dining room was poor and inconvenient - toasting machine beside the entrance of the room. This caused congestion. The whole place was a mixture of furnitue from second hand shops - rewiring all over the walls and alot of botching work.Lounge furniture needed attention - mish mash of furniture - no co-ordination of colour schemes throughout. Not suitable for pets .

  • Single

    2 single beds pushed together for booked double room, No information given about parking outside hotel turns out you cant without geting a ticket, simple notice in reception would inform you or say dont park there,

  • Older travelers

    Getting out.

    Room decor out of date by 50 years, and looked very sad & shabby, staff if any were non exsistant, dinning room very crampped and stuffy,breakfast was self serve and cold. The pictures on this site are correct but must have been taken when this hotel/b&b was first built. I came away as if I had just been robbed.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel is very clean, greta is a lovely helpful and careing person. The room was spotless. We had 2 small dogs with us and had our own front door into our room away from the main entrance. There is a grass area opposite, the breakfast was plenty and perfect. The manger greeted us on arrivel allowed us into our room early he was very helpful grete was there there for our whole stay wonderful. There was even food for my dog

    There was nothing I did not like, and cant wait to stay again.

  • Single

    Breakfast was good. The room is badly in need of redecoration and tthe bedlinen needs to be replaced.

  • Older travelers

    The Ellesmere was just a place to stay so that we can enjoy walking (along the front/to East Dean via Beachy Head) and visiting.

    We asked that the bed be made properly so that the covers went over our shoulders when we were lying down and that an extra blanket be put on - the bed was made the same and an extra blanket was left folded on top of the bed! On the first morning the eggs were not cooked properly neither was the bacon. The only staff member available on arrival and at the first breakfast did not speak or understand English properly so communication was difficult.

  • Older travelers

    Breakfast was fairly good.

    Shower tray was dangerous in so much as it was collapsing at one side. Sliding door to shower was loose and did not close correctly.

  • Couple

    The owner was very nice and welcoming. Great location.

    My problem is less with the hotel(B&B) and more with this website. My impression foolishly was that this was a hotel and given the £100 price for the room I was expecting far FAR better. This is basically a tired old B&B that I would pay no more than £25 a night for now I've seen it. I was SO disappointed when i walked in the room and it really put a dampner on our night away. This place would benefit from a total renovation, new furniture, a lick of paint, new bathroom etc. A fresh breakfast would have also been good instead of the breakfast buffet that had been standing for a while and nearly empty when we arrived. Overall very poor, felt ripped off and let down to say the least.
