Accommodation Description:

Built around 1851 this lovely Victorian property was designed as a town house but has been a hotel for many years. Now we are a Grade II listed building retaining most of the original features. Only 100 yards from the beach and the Pier and a few minutes walk from the town centre.

Eastbourne came into it's own as a Victorian seaside resort and Cromwell House was built as a Victorian town house about 160 years ago. It has been taking guest's for 90 years so the property has seen a great many changes in that time. We arrived here in July 2007 and have been decorating ever since, we hope you like what we have done so far.

All our rooms have a shower en-suite with tea/coffee making facilities, colour TV and radio alarm clock. We are open for bed and breakfast all year except Christmas & New Year and offer evening meals from June to September. As we are licenced you can enjoy a drink with your meal or in the lounge, where you will find a large flat screen TV a selection of DVDs and a small library.

There's a great deal on offer in Eastbourne and here are just a few :- Award winning beaches with the south downs and Beachy Head as a back drop, three theatres, museums and the new Towner Art Gallery. Many good restaurants and fine pubs. The Victorian Pier, band stand and carpet gardens are well worth a look, and you can hire a beach hut for the day.

Through the summer there are many events including Airbourne with the Red Arrows, International Tennis Week, Eastbourne Extreme, Speed Days, a Beer Festival even a Marathon. For a full list go to With an average 34.6 hours of sun a week Eastbourne has been named the sunniest place in the UK.
