A short visit to do some hiking
Judy and her small team were amazingly helpful. My room was clean, spacious and had space to relax. Best shower I have had in many years with plenty of hot water. Highly recommended and nice and central so could find all I needed on foot. Looking forward to a chance to come back

Great location for central Eastbourne with free, safe parking for guests. Good sized pleasant rooms, comfortably furnished. Breakfast was room service ordered the previous evening due to Covid-19 precautions. This limited the hot food offerings but was still good value. Look forward to staying at the Sheldon again.
