As an annual visitor to Eastbourne for the past 12 years and having stayed in the plush surroundings of the Grand, Cavendish and Lansdowne, there is no way in future I'm going anywhere else except to The Sheldon. Apart from the convenient location for my needs, the room was comfy, well appointed and so quiet. The personally served cooked breakfast was excellent and the staff were always helpful & pleasant. Best of all, the owners are very 'hands on' and did everything possible to provide a warm and friendly welcome.

Friendly family run hotel with on-site car park which is very useful as it's close to the beach and town and the area is full of hungry traffic wardens!! Excellent breakfast in stylish dining room. Recommended.

I really enjoyed my 2 night stay at this hotel to attend a conference. The owners were very welcoming and friendly throughout our stay, as were the staff serving breakfast. I stayed in the budget double, which was small but had everything you would need. The room and the hotel in general was very clean and well looked after; the décor was modern and appealing; and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely, with a wide choice to suit all tastes as well as catering for specific dietary needs (one of our party required a gluten free diet). Thank you for a lovely weekend!

Lovely, clean & spacious room..shared the deluxe twin with my friend (girly weekend away!) service when we arrived was friendly & helpful. You couldn't fault the service at breakfast or the breakfast itself.. Lots to choose from whether you want cereals, toast or a full English..
Overall a great place to stay.. Would highly recommend! & stay again :)

We found the Sheldon easy to find, free parking and a lovely room. Very clean, helpful staff and great surroundings. A very pleasant stay for two nights. Comfortable beds, good TV. Small bathroom but very nice. Free tea and coffee and the breakfast was good, they also cater for vegans.

This is a lovely, clean and friendly hotel in an excellent location close to the town centre, pier and seafront. The dining room had real linen table cloths and napkins and breakfast was top quality. I had a sausage sandwich and my son had the full English. The sausages were proper butchers type sausages and very tasty and I also had mini Danish pastries and pure orange juice. My only negative comment would be that the car park entrance is low and narrow and it might be an idea to warn people of this as some vehicles might not fit! It was very handy to have free parking though!

Booked as a last minute break, opted for the 'suite', warm greeting on arrival from the lovely chap on reception who offered to carry our bags to the room. The decor throughout the hotel is fresh and contemporary, the room itself is very spacious with a free standing bath and a shower within the room itself,a super king size bed and separate toilet and basin. All good until we realised that the toilet hadn't been flushed and the bathroom bin emptied since the last guests. Then had to check round to make sure everything else was ok. The hotel do provide a hair dryer but it is nowhere near the mirror, also a good selection of teas/coffees, cakes and biscuits and fresh milk in a little,fridge, all nice touches. A word with reception soon had the bathroom issue it sorted out and a small refund on checking out but not really what you should expect at £105 per night. It didn't spoil our enjoyment of the room, the bed is extremely comfortable and car parking on site a great asset. Breakfast was excellent but only served 8am to 930am which,for a Sunday morning, could have been a bit later to enable a lie in but with checkout being by 1030 maybe this isn't possible. Perhaps,a later checkout on a Sunday ?
Would I recommend the hotel - yes definitely, would we stay there again if visiting Eastbourne - yes would certainly consider it

Having visited in April, I booked a longer stay in the Superior suite (Room 15) as a long weekend break for my wife and I.
The room is fantastic, and the roll top bath is great to unwind in after a day out and about, the bed is massive and probably the most comfy bed I have ever come across in a hotel!
Fresh fruit and bottles of water and fresh orange provided, also fluffy towels and good selection of tea, coffee, and hot chocolate provided!
Room and the rest of the hotel, spotless.
Free car park, it is near impossible to find free parking in Eastbourne, this is a massive bonus!
Free WiFi, and hearty breakfast provided.
Owners go the extra mile to see that you have a good stay with them, nothing appears to be too much trouble!
Will be back!

Booked a one night stay in for a short trip to Eastbourne. The hotel has it's own car park behind the hotel which was very convenient. Our room was spacious and clean (toilet and shower), we even had a 2 seater sofa and chair in the room. Breakfast was very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I would go again if in the area. No restaurant in hotel but there are so many restaurants within walking distance of the hotel it doesn't matter. Only short walk to seafront, pier and shops.

Booked a one night stay for a quick wedding anniversary escape. Nice place, no frills. Room was spacious and lovely - superior double (room 28), on 2nd floor with king sized bed, small dressing room, tea and coffee, nice toiletries, very comfortable bed with good linen. All recently decorated. Nice bathroom. Room overlooked the road, was very quiet (apart from seagulls !). Good tv with large range of channels. Breakfast was fine - pretty standard, with buffet cereal, fruit (plus slightly sad-looking huge bowl of tinned fruit), juice, pastries and yoghurt, with a perfectly nice full english cooked to order. Location is excellent - quiet but central, pier less than 5 mins away, along with several decent restaurants. Attentive owners throughout booking process. Would happily stay here again.

We stayed here in a superior double room last weekend. We have stayed in many of the sea front hotels in Eastbourne and the Sheldon is well worth a visit. A small free car park helps as the sea front hotels do not offer this and parking can be xpensive. The room we stayed in was large and comfortable with a good quality TV. Bed was extremely comfortable and there was room for a 2 seater settee and chair. The bathroom was large with a separate shower and bath. Breakfast was very nice in a pleasant room. There is no bar in the hotel but there are ample pubs/bars and restaurants within 5 mins walk. My wife said she would certainly stay here again in preference to most of the seafront hotels and i agree.

The room was quite small but the main issue was I was woken up numerous times early in the morning by noise from banging doors (I assume caused by other residents).

We spent a two night stay at The Sheldon. It is in an excellent location two minutes walk from the seafront. There are several restaurants within 5 to 10 minutes walk. We had booked a Superior Double room. We were surprised that as we had gone for a higher quality room it was in the basement with a view of the car park. The room was very spacious with plenty of drawer and cupboard space. However, it lacked character and needed more colour on the walls. A large modern bathroom. Breakfast room was very modern and well equipped. We both enjoyed the breakfast which was served very quickly. Good value place to stay.

Spotlessly clean throughout. Lovely big airy room with very comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast. Excellent warm and friendly service. Private free car park. 5 minute walk to the bottom of the road to the sea 5 minutes to restaurants and 15 minutes to town centre. I took my elderly mum for a 2 night break and we both thoroughly enjoyed the stay. only problem for my mum was the steps leading up to the front door which she found a bit hard and had to hold my arm.
Someone less mobile may struggle. Once inside there is a lift. Not a hotel if you want evening entertainment but perfect for a quiet break.

The Sheldon is a very nice B & B. Ideal location 5-10 minutes away from city centre or beach front. The room was clean, neat and tidy. Serviced every day. On site parking is a big bonus. A very good selection of food for breakfast, cooked well and served quickly. My only concern was that there was no bar. Although it was not far to the nearest watering hole it would have been nice just to pop downstairs for a drink or two. All in all a good place to be.

Having stayed in this hotel for our 14 night summer holidays for the last four years. We arrived in the middle of July for this years stay. We knew the hotel had been taken over ate last year, so obviously were a bit apprehensive as to what to expect as the hotel was going downhill slightly under the previous owners. We were absolutely worried about nothing and have just arrived home from a wonderful relaxing stay. We stayed in the luxury suite (room 15) and received nothing but perfect service from Judith and Sarah (not forgetting the guys in the background). All of the team give a very personal and friendly professional service and we wish them all every success for the future. This hotel is the only hotel we would recommend in Eastbourne and we have stayed in many over the years, next years stay is already booked!
