It was the 1st time we had stopped at the Sheldon and were extremely pleased. We had a lovely room, the owners were very friendly and it is convenient for the town or the beach.It has the added advantage of car parking as well, we visit eastbourne during the year and will be using the Sheldon again

Single room, small but comfortable. Staff helpful and friendly. Off the main Parade but close to amenities and the beach. Off road free parking very useful, though access pretty narrow for larger vehicles. Has small common room and children's playroom next door.

Can’t fault it . Great to be able to park in their car part before even checking in saves a lot of time looking for somewhere to park before you check-in to the hotel. Lovely clean very big room with a great welcome tray. Lovely toiletries slippers and bath robes. All in all a lovely hotel . Would recommend 100%.

We had a break in Eastbourne and chose the Sheldon for it's proximity to the Theatres, the town and the seafront. We were delighted with the location. As a very pleasant bonus we enjoyed and immaculate room, and an outstanding freshly cooked breakfast. Very pleasant and helpful staff and a great stay.

We had a friendly welcome on arrival from Judith and Greg. Our room was very spacious with a large ensuite. Plenty of storage space. There was also a sofa and easy chair. It was kept very clean and tidy during our 4 night stay. There was plenty of choice for the cooked breakfast and juices and cereals to start. All served in a large dining room by friendly staff happy to help. The car park at the rear of the B&B was a huge plus and the lift to all floors was very helpful. The Sheldon is situated close to the seafront. As we were going to the bandstand for a show this was ideal. We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return. Thankyou.

I stayed for 7 nights at The Sheldon this October and it was just fab. In 2016 I already stayed at this B&B which is definately more to me than just a B&B cause Judith and Greg manage The Sheldon like a family hotel. And they do their job very very good – always helpful and always with a smile on their face. Furthermore The Sheldon is located not far from the High Street and it takes only two minutes by foot to the sea front. To be honest – I can’t wait until I return!

We stayed for one night . Car park had a couple of spaces but there was no way my car was getting into them unfortunately so had to park some way away and as it was raining this wasn't ideal ! Room was clean and good size ,only negative was the bathroom which was small but main issue was the shower .The water was so hot we couldn't use it even though we played around with it for ages . I stay in hotels every week with my work so am quite expert on showers workings ! I did report it when checking out and the receptionist seemed surprised . A shower is a must and although the hotel is in good condition this room (24) needs a new shower . If we had showered in the evening we would have asked for it to be looked at but this was the morning unfortunately . Breakfast was very nice although staff serving could have been a little more friendly !

Very practical in all respects. The location is a short stroll to both the sea-front and the town centre. The car park is really useful and was practical for our medium-ish family estate, if you have a very large car I suggest checking with the owners. The breakfast process worked well, with a reasonable range of things to help yourself to and cooked breakfasts were pleasant, well timed and with pleasant service. Our room (superior twin/double) was spacious, comfortable, well furnished and fitted. It suited us very well and, if staying in Eastbourne again, we would very likely have this as our first choice.

It calls itself a B&B rather than a hotel, but it's somewhere in-between (in other words, it is better than it claims). It's not a pretentious place, but very well thought out; the room we stayed in supplied everything that you could possibly need (dressing gowns, slippers, tea/coffee making facilities, an iron and ironing board, a hairdryer of course, and much more). It was scrupulously clean and well-decorated, and elegantly sized. This is a very professionally thought-out place, and vey well run. At a good price too.

I really enjoyed being at The Shaldon . The welcome I received was really friendly, my room was excellent ( sometimes single rooms are a bit small but this wasn’t) and had the added bonus of being able to see the sea! I appreciated the information pack which was very comprehensive. After a very comfortable nights sleep I enjoyed a very good breakfast with the best scrambled eggs I have ever tasted. The off road parking is another bonus. I shall look forward to a return visit!

Just returned home after a short stay at The Sheldon, we highly recommend The Sheldon it's our go to place when visiting family in the area, this was our 3rd stay and just perfect again, the rooms are lovely and big, spotlessly clean huge comfy bed everything there (even an iron and ironing board) to ensure a comfortable stay. Always a lovely warm welcome and I would feel absolutely comfortable to ask the lovely owners if I needed anything. Breakfast is delicious with an extensive menu to choose from. So if you're searching through the many places to stay in Eastbourne you'll not go wrong at the Sheldon with the added advantage of its own car park at the back and convenient position just off the sea front.

The Sheldon is an excellent choice when staying in Eastbourne. It is very close to the sea front and a short walk into town. Pubs and restaurants are very close. The Sheldon is in a great location. We were on a seven day holiday and the location helped us. The room we stayed in was large and comfortable with an excellent bathroom with shower over the bath. The rooms are very clean. Their is an excellent choice of food and drinks at breakfast and the breakfast times are generous. There is car parking at the back which is a fantastic bonus. Judith & Greg are "not in your face", which is how we prefer, but they are very helpful when needed. They are the ideal hosts. We intended to drive to the places we were going to visit, but the transport system is so good in Eastbourne we used local services. This was our first visit to Eastbourne. We totally enjoyed the town and the visit to The Sheldon. We cannot wait until we return.

I only stayed one night but very impressed. Really comfortable and quiet. I had a really good and restful sleep. Delicious breakfast and warm and welcoming staff. If I’m in Eastbourne again I won’t hesitate to book the Sheldon.

The Sheldon was perfect for our Wedding Weekend, September 1st. We were able to book 7 rooms which meant all the family could be together. All the rooms are spacious , so ideal for all our wedding gear. Having the private off street car park was a real bonus. We filled the Sheldon fridge with champagne, and made full use of the communal lounge, both on the eve of the Wedding and in the morning. The close proximity to the promenade makes it ideal for a walk by the sea.We received such a warm welcome ,we would definitely all stay again!

We have just returned from a lovely break at The Sheldon. Our room was extremely spacious, the breakfasts were fabulous and the staff were friendly, helpful and polite. It was a quiet and relaxing break for us. The location was perfect to enjoy walks along the seafront, the many restaurants nearby and a variety of shops. Highlights for us were the Eastbourne bandstand shows: an Eagles tribute night on the Friday and Rod Stewart tribute on the Saturday, which were so much fun. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Sheldon to any of our friends. Julie Dodsworth and Steve Edwards

Only some minutes walk to beach or town centre, a lot of restaurants/pubs are nearby. Big advantage: own car park behind the B&B (free of charge). Large room, good breakfast and very friendly staff. Thank you very much

We've stayed at the Sheldon several times. Breakfast is top quality with good pleasant staff. We've always requested a quiet area room and that's exactly what we've received. Nothing is too much trouble for the team, provided you tell them if there is an issue there and then. It's no good writing a bad review after the event, when something could have been dealt with immediately. We will be staying here again.

I am not sure if this was our fifth or sixth stay at the Sheldon B7B but all of them have been very good. We only stayed one night as we wanted to see the show at the local theatre and I am now of the age that night driving become a problem. We have always had a good welcome, with a nice room and a excellent breakfast , as it is only short walk form the Sheldon to the theatre with a carpark ready to use it is ideal.Many thanks for a nice time.

The property is ideally situated being a short walk to beach or town. It is very clean and comfortable and the owners look after your every needs. They are friendly and sociable. The breakfast is very good with plenty of choice. The real bonus is that they have their own car park. A real asset in Eastbourne. Really enjoyed our three night stay.

My wife and I stayed here from the 20th May for 4 nights and were made to feel very welcome right from the word go. After parking the car at the rear of the building (car park a great asset as street parking very limited and chargeable). There were not many guests in residence when we arrived so we had the choice of car park spaces on arrival and as stated on the website the entrance to the car park is restricted by height but we had no problem in our Fiesta. We were met on arrival by a polite young man who took our payment, explained where our room was situated, the location of the breakfast room and smoking areas and breakfast eating times. He said if anything further was required just to ring the bell on reception and as we could not get the TV to work later in the day we did just that and he sorted that query out straight away. Our superior twin room, number 18, was on the first floor with a street view and certainly lived up to our expectations and was as described by Judith in a telephone conversation at the time of booking.The room was a the end of a corridor and accessed through a door on the landing, another entrance door and the room door itself. This created and oasis of calm as there was only one other room in this section and for most of our stay this was not used. The room itself was huge with plenty of drawer space, not a lot of hanging space but this was made up by the more than adequate drawer space and was sufficient for our needs. There was also a settee and two chairs with a wall mounted Freesat TV and 2 bedside lights and another freestanding light. The refreshment tray was tucked away in separate area containing the wardrobe, iron and ironing board and the bathroom was also in a separate area of the room both accessed by their own doors. We had booked a silent room fridge and this was up and running on arrival. The lift to the rooms is another great asset. The bathroom was small but ok and the small shower cubicle had a fixed shower head which was fine for our stay and supplied plenty of hot water. Breakfast was good each day and there was a varied choice on the menu. Cold buffet and drinks on a help yourself basis and hot food and toast served by a very pleasant young lady. Spoke to the owners,Judith and Greg, throughout our stay and found them to be very helpful at all times.

Well situated Hotel for the Sea Front, Shopping, and dozens of places to eat. My only negative comment is about the outside area at the front of the Hotel that could do with a sweeping brush to improve the look of the entrance to an otherwise very orderly residence. This unfortunately caused a rating of Very Good rather than Excellent. We visited Eastbourne for a short one week stay and to play golf. There are plenty of good quality courses nearby, and the prices are very reasonable. We will definately return next year.

I stayed here recently for 2 nights with friends. The Sheldon is a bit too big to be called a B&B, but it isn't really a hotel either. That said, it's in a good, central location with private parking. My superior double room was a good size, although the standard single rooms don't have a lot of space. There's a good range of breakfast options.
