What people are saying about The New England

Fab-u-lous!! - Rating 5/5

Myself and 3 friends stayed for a weekend at the New England and we loved it.Brid &Derek were super friendly and welcoming from the moment we met. They offered us info on where to eat in the local area and other useful tips.The rooms were spotlessly clean (&I’m fussy!) and breakfast was amazing! We couldn’t fault any aspect of our stay - I’d definitely recommend it to anyone going to Eastbourne.Thank you so much for having us - we’ll be back!

Brid and Derek are the lovely people, possibly why they make such wonderful hosts to their ‘home’. Comfortable and warm, and the breakfast was spot on. Rooms are like family guest rooms, with a fresh New England decor. Loved it!

Very welcoming- Rating 5/5

Actually single parent with teenage kids. Stayed in the family suite which is a double room + twin room together. Bathroom off the twin room. It’s on the raised ground floor at the side. As you’re slightly above street level and at the side, the lack of sheer curtains or similar wasn’t terminal but might be an idea. Good blackout curtains and no street noise. Good lounge and bar area and lovely bright breakfast room. Excellent breakfast options hot and cold. Would stay there again.

We know Brid and Derek from their days as pub landlord and landlady and they were always so warm and welcoming. They have now taken their amazing hospitality to new heights and created a wonderful home from home. The New England is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated in a tasteful seaside theme. There is a lovely lounge to relax in which has music gently playing in the background. The dining room also looks over the seafront.We are both vegans and we were catered for so well at breakfast, with delicious products going over and above the norm! We loved our stay and will definitely be returning. Thank you all at The New England!! 😁😁😁

The addition of this most comfortable and welcoming guest house made a big difference to our first experience of the tennis international in June. It was great to know we had thoughtful and welcoming hosts plus a comfortable room overlooking the sea on our return from a hard day watching top flight tennis! The breakfast choice is extensive and generous and all efforts are made to satisfy individual dietary needs. The lounge is small but very comfortable. This is a traditional seaside guest house offering excellent value and a modern approach to the service it offers. Brid and Derek ( owners ) deserve every success.

There was a range of tea and tasty biscuits in the room with water and a very handy corkscrew with wine glasses if you fancied a bottle of wine.The reception we received on arrival was exceptional, we felt like we had known Derrick and Brid for years. They have recently obtained a license for a small bar and we were the first to receive a complementary drink.Breakfast was very tasty, we helped ourselves to the variety of cereals, fruit and drinks laid out each morning and ordered a delicious full English breakfast from the menu which was lovely and hot.

We recently spent four nights at The New England while visiting a relative in Eastbourne.The hotel is located opposite the Redoubt Fortress Museum, heritage café and promenade. Eastbourne pier, seafront gardens and shopping centre are easily reached on foot. The free parking is on-street and we were always able to park right outside the hotel.On arrival we were warmly greeted by Doreen who showed us to our scrupulously clean and tastefully decorated room, with a balcony overlooking the Redoubt gardens and sea;she also brought us fresh milk for our tea – much appreciated! Lots of nice touches in the room and en suite and a really comfortable bed.The breakfast room and guest lounge are comfortable, beautifully themed and spacious. The breakfast buffet offered all the usual cereals and breads plus lots of fresh fruit, home-made compote and perfectly cooked eggs. Both our hosts were, helpful, humorous and friendly. Although for some of our stay the hotel was pretty full, it was always quiet and relaxing. Thank you so much Doreen and Mario, we hope to stay with you again and will certainly recommend The New England to our friends.

Two nights stay - Rating 5/5

My husband and i had an enjoyable stay. We was made to feel really welcome,even with my husband as he had a injured leg,the room was so accommodated for us being on ground level. Nothing was to much trouble for Doreen and Mario with a cheery smile always. The room was clean to a very high standard, breakfast was lush. We have booked for another two nights stay in August.

No issues apart from finding a place to park my small car but this would appear to be a generic Eastbourne problem. Breakfast was perfect and room was up to what I have become used to while travelling extensively overseas for the past 50 years.

What a nice place to stay - Rating 5/5

This was a return visit for us, and the experience was as good as ever. Friendly, welcoming, relaxed, comfortable, and excellent breakfasts (and it's well situated). Fresh milk in the rooms was a nice touch, and Doreen's homemade compote for breakfast was delicious. Highly recommended.

Lovely break - Rating 5/5

The New England is a lovely B&B right on the front at Eastbourne.The room we had, room 4, is lovely, great view on the seafront.The rooms are really light and airy and so clean.When we checked in we were given milk in case we wanted to make our own drinks in the room.Check-in and check out was easy and we enjoyed a really good breakfast in the morning.The only change I would recommend is that a 9.30am breakfast cut off seemeda little early, I would understand any other day but Sunday 10am would have been good. To be honest I don't think it would have been an issue if we had arrived a little late, so it really is only a small issue!! Otherwise it was a perfect stay.
