Free car parking an advantage

Posted Jul 18, 2017
Pros: Breakfast was good and staff friendly.
Location: walking distance to the brach
Got budget room, facing car park at the back. OK, but bathroom has no radiators and it must get cold in the winter.

Interesting observation given you came in summer! The bathroom actually is very cosy in winter, we get great feedback!

Nice hotel in a safe area close to the seafront. Parking on site but be prepared for a tight squeeze. There's also a height restriction on the way into the car park. Booked a premium room and it was lovely. Breakfast was great and the owners are very attentive. Would stay again.

Stayed 2 nights to encompass a theatre visit perfectly placed for all theatres. Lots of eateries nearby. The parking was a real bonus. Would recommend and go again

Good value hotel near all amenities in Eastbourne.

Posted Mar 6, 2017
We wanted a last minute room for a 1 night stay in Eastbourne and we booked the basic double. It had free parking- albeit a little tight! Clean room with shower and comfy bed. Pillows were too big/ hard though. You might need to check before u go to bed and change them for appropriate ones. choice of breakfast. Although the service was quite slow, but I think we turned up at rush hour! The staff were very apologetic and overall good. We had an English breakfast- not massive but ok. The buffet was well stocked. Overall good but not wow.

We were 100% occupancy and indeed, nearly everyone did arrive at the same time, putting ots of pressure on us. Rest assured your breakfast is freshly cooked to order for you (we don't hot hold) so this means there is a wait, but this does give you time to enjoy the buffet and your toast. If you are not happy with any aspect of your stay, always tell us whilst you are here, so we can fix it!

Great hotel, clean and conveniently located

Posted Mar 4, 2017 on Hotels
The Sheldon is a great little hotel, conveniently located for the beach and the town centre. Private parking is a big plus. The hosts are very welcoming and, whilst the rooms could do with some cosmetic updates, they are clean and spacious. There are lots of good restaurants/cafes in the area (I'd recommend the Coffee & Carrot cafe on Cornfield Road and Mo Mambo Mania on Terminus Road). I didn't have breakfast so cannot comment on that, just that, based on the welcome folder, there seems to be a good choice available.

Thank you very much, we are painting something nearly every day to keep on top of the cosmetic bits, thankfully we are busy so it is not always possible!
