Immaculate Guest House
We have just returned home after our two night stay at Ivydene. This was our first stay at this charming guest house and we were not disappointed. Darren and Martin are charming hosts. They obviously have a marvellous team at the Ivydene because the property, both inside and out, was immaculate. We stayed in a large double room and we were very pleased with it. We would definitely recommend Ivydene. (The only reason we haven\'t given it 5 stars is because of the difficulty in parking, which is a problem in the whole of Eastbourne, not just at Ivydene - too many cars and not enough spaces).

A Very Friendly, Comfortable Guest House
Darren welcomed us warmly and explained everything before showing us to our room (15) which was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. You can select your breakfast for the next day from a menu card. It was freshly cooked, with no waiting and impeccably served by Darren, for whom nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent. Car parking in Latimer Road is free, but very hit and miss as to how close you can get to Ivydene. The lounge bar looks very cosy and friendly, but very quiet, so we weren\'t able to use it. We would definitely stay there again.

Welcoming, Clean, Nice Crisp Decoration And Bedding
Having read excellent reviews we had high expectations, and we were not disappointed.



Great things: welcome, staff friendly, very clean, everything looked \"new\", very comfortable bedding, and nice crisp cotton sheets. Bathroom immaculately clean and well decorated.

Breakfast was good, with plenty of choice.

Smallest possible issue was that the room was a little on the small side. But to be honest, given that everything else was so great, it hardly mattered.

Excellent value for money and I will DEFINITELY come back.

A Fantastic Hotel
Cosy, comfortable, well maintained and a warning atmosphere, Ivydene was a fantastic guest house.

The joint owners made us very welcome and gave great recommendations about things to do in the local area.

The room was clean, well furnished and a good size. Breakfast was very good and although we didn\'t use them, the residents bar and lounge area looked very relaxing and seemed a nice addition.

Practically, the guest house is only a short walk from the pier and the town centre and the parking is free and safe outside of Ivydene.

Overall, a very successful stay and would highly recommend Ivydene Guest House to all.

Not To Be Missed !!
From the moment that we arrived, to say that we were treated as royalty would be an understatement. The Owners Darren & Martin were friendly, courteous and extremely helpful.

The rooms and bathrooms were up to a very high standard, with comfy beds, TV and a well appointed en-suite with a large shower cabinet, wash basin and toilet . Downstairs there is a very cosy Bar area with soft furnishings and also a separate dinning area. You can choose your own breakfast requirements on a daily basis by just filling out a small menu card (the evening before). Just to top it off the beach is approx. 5 mins walk and the town centre about 15mins. To summarise, we would 100% recommend this Hotel and will deffo be returning. 5 stars :)

Our Review Of Ivydene Guest House
We spent just 2 nights at Ivydene Guest House, yet we both felt as if we had had a longer holiday there. The Proprietors Darren & Martin are very professional, welcoming and genuinely concerned that we were comfortable and satisfied during our stay, which we were. The room we had was well kept and very clean in all aspects, suiting our needs. This was also reflected in the communal areas of the building.The breakfasts are 1st class and big, with plenty of choices. This establishment deserves the 4 stars the AA have awarded it. We would happily stay at Ivydene Guest House again. We recommend it.

This was the best find ever, a lovely bed and breakfast. The whole of the property was spotless and highly decorated. It was just lovely to have such a nice place to stay in. The room althugh not big was very good the sheets and towels excellent and the bathroom everything you need in a clean environment. The B&B was near the esplanade and also near the town surrounded with loads of places to eat out in the evening. The owners were so good to us very helpful. The food in the morning freshly coooked for you and again the dining room spotless and well decorated.

An Excellent Guest House
In April I stayed at the Ivydene for one night and found it to be so welcoming and comfortable that I decided to come back for a longer stay. This did not disappoint. The room was comfortable and clean and the breakfasts were excellent and brilliantly organised. Darren and Martin are wonderful hosts who make you feel so welcome. They run the Ivydene efficiently and professionally and everything runs so smoothly. It is an absolute pleasure to be there. I look forward to returning next year and would recommend the Ivydene Guest House to anyone.

The Right Place To Stay
The Right Place to stay. For many years I have been trying to find the best place to stay in Eastbourne for my summer holidays. In 2015 I reckon I have found it. The hotel is clean and comfortable and convenient for the beach and town centre. Martin is an excellent cook and Darren is a jack of all trades. The guests are friendly and helpful with lots of delightful banter. The window washer comes regularly to clean the windows. What more could you wish for?

Gem In The Rough!
Just looking for somewhere to get my head down, but this exceeded all my expectations! Spotlessly clean, really comfy bed and overwhelmingly large breakfasts cooked to perfection. To add to this was the kind and welcoming hospitality. five stars.

Sunny Eastbourne
Our first visit to Eastbourne and as such a bit of a leap in the dark. However our stay at Ivydene Guest house was a very pleasant and very comfortable stay. Hosts Darren and Martin are excellent and show a pleasant and helpful attitude and nothing is too much trouble.On first enquiry as to availability, Darren was clear as to the different merits of available rooms which was very refreshing to hear. On arrival first impressions was one of being very pleased and that remained throughout our stay.Well presented lounge and dining room, spotlessly clean and attention to detail was evident. Breakfast was appetising and really something to look forward to. Location was as described being close to amenities and ideal for sightseeing. Car parking is a problem but space is available, just be patient. However we made more use of good transport links and plentiful taxi services and of course Dotty \"train\" service along the attractive promenade. I would recommend this guest house and Darren and Martin work hard to achieve my five stars.I am sure that a guest would not be disappointed.

Our Stay At The Ivydene Guest House, Eastbourne
Stayed for 2 nights at the Ivydene and as soon as we arrived had a very warm welcome and also a lovely cuppa. Nice touch! The room we stayed in was very clean and had plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits etc. Breakfast great and Darren and Martin who run the Guest House do all they can to make the stay great. Would highly recommend and we will certainly return when next in Eastbourne.

Doug and Martin made us feel very welcome

The rooms where very clean as was the rest of the guest house.

Breakfast was very good the choices where very good.

The only minus was no bar when we returned from our meal,Maybe it was because of it being early season.

Ivydene Guest House Review
Nice clean place, close to the beach and central attractions. We arrived to Ivydene Guest House earlier than expected, gladly the manager have been flexible and we could move into our rooms earlier. We have stayed in several different B&B\'s in past few years, but Ivydene Guest House has VERY VERY CLEAN ROOMS AND BATHROOMS AND EXCEPTIONAL STAFF. The manager gave us brilliant tourist attractions info and recommended us pub with the great food. Ivydene is not brand new hotel, but have its own character and people are really helpful. The breakfast were freshly cooked and tasty. Good Luck guys and see you soon.

Excellent Overnight Stay
I stayed at the Ivydene for one night as I was going to a show at the Royal Hippodrome. From the moment I arrived I was made to feel welcome. The room was clean, comfortable and attractive with everything I needed. Breakfast in the morning was nicely cooked and the service was extremely efficient and well run considering we had all elected to eat at the same time! Darren and Martin were excellent hosts. I really couldn\'t find any fault and fully intend to go back for longer.
