10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Lovely place to stay
"Very friendly owners, loveley rooms. The room we had did have a view up the street to the sea. Only drawback was the Seagulls which are very noisy in the morning (common to most establishments in Eastbourne). Nearby is an excellent, award winning fish and chip shop/restaurant and some good pubs. Excellent breakfast."

"Agree with a many reviews on this site but badly let down with the breakfast. Took nearly 45 minutes to get cooked breakfast on the table and the sausages were microwaved!!! No, No, No. Delightful people, lovely area but there seemed to be a lot of offers on at other larger establishments when we were there so did feel a little cheated at the high price paid."

"My husband and I spent a week at the Albert & Victoria which is a very fine place to stay. Home from home but with lots of extras. Comfortable, friendly with a very generous start to the day breakfast, which is wonderful. You arrive as a guest, but leave as a friend. The B&B with a heart that beats. Great time, great place to stay, great people."

Excellent friendly, stylish B&B
"What a beautiful little B&B. The inside is a complete surprise! Large, beautifully decorated rooms with a genuine Victorian 'feel' to them. Rite and Ian are real gems and try hard to make everyone welcome. We were even introduced to Ellie-May (a somewhat nervous, but lovely, boxer). We had an excellent relaxing stay with generous and well cooked breakfasts too! We can't recommend it highly enough and will certainly return for another visit."

A right royal place
"The best things about staying at the Albert and Victoria B & B is that new owners Rita and Ian are fast learners! Their hospitality was wonderful and as our visit was to celebrate a special occasion, an anniversary cake appeared "out of the blue" - great thoughtfulness! The location is a minute from the promenade and within walking distance to many seaside venues. Be sure to ask for one of the larger front rooms - even gives a peep at the sea and worth any extra Â£s."

Friendly, spotless, full of character, perfect location, great breakfast
"As my title states this small B&B has everything you could want for a weekend break. The rooms are decorated in period(Victorian) furnishings and are very plush. The sheets on the bed were the softest we have ever had the pleasure to sleep on. Your hosts are very friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was a perfect meal to start your day. 1 minute walk from the seafront. It completely surpassed our expectations. On a seperate note do not waste your time or money at Lucifers restaurant. The service was terrible, the food was plain and tasteless and the staff treated the restaurant like their own living room and completely spoiled what was supposed to be a romantic meal."

"Again, I can only reiterate what the previous reviewer has stated this is quite clearly a B&B but what a B&B!!!. This is one of the best places I have ever stayed with work. The rooms are simply sensational providing character and amazing bathroom facilities. Everything was spotless and the overall presentation was perfection. The staff were incredibly friendly and felt like they had known you for a long time. Their warmth was very touching and is very rare to find these days. Couldn't think of anything to improve this wonderful place."

"The previous reviewer seemed a little dismayed that they were conned into thinking this was a hotel !!!! A little time and effort and a 1 minute phone call would 100% clarify that this is a b&b and not a hotel and doesnt have the oh so vital "cable tv" that the previous "well travelled" television addicts obviously yearn after !!! There are only 3 ( i think ) rooms in the building ( which in itself should give the game away ) - all of which are very quirky - we had a beautifull victorian double bed with huge bay window. Room very clean and fresh smelling - bathroom spotless. The owners were very pleasant and breakfast was served in a very quaint dining room or can be served in the courtyard if weather permits - very good quality breakfast items used ( local fresh produce ). If you are looking for a Holiday Inn, Marriott or Crowne Plaza then like the previous reviewer this is noot the place for you . If however you come to Eastbourne to stay in a top quality old fashioned English quirky property full of Victorian character and intimacy then this is the place for you."

Not a Hotel
"This is NOT a Hotel it is a B&B. As such it is very comfortable and the hosts are pleasant but it should NOT be on any Hotel search engine as it does not offer hotel type accomodation. The web site does not make it clear that it is a guest house except from the English Rose Logo at the top. It is fun to stay at for one or two nights but very overpriced for longer stays. TV and facilities in room are OK but not excellent, no satellite TV and not all terrestrial channels either. As it is a very old house there is very little storage space in the rooms so be prepared to live out of your bags. Breakfasts are adequate but you get the impression that you can only have extra toast or tea/coffee. One morning I decided I did not want an item in the cooked breakfast but I was not offered an alternative so I felt short changed. I compared this B&B with the rates at other proper hotels. The Devonshire offered modern rooms with satelite TV, bar service, full breakfast & lounge facilities for Â£ 32.00 per person. So quite a bit cheaper. Overall if you want a Victorian Experience this is fine & fun but if you want value for money look elsewhere."
