Stayed at Ivydene for the bank holiday. We found Ivydene and its staff 2nd to none. Breakfast, our room and the dining room were impeccably clean. Ivydene is one Road behind the pebbly beach making it very quiet at night to sleep. Parking was free and we managed to park right outside. Thank you for the hospitality provided.

Managed to get a last minute Easter break in Eastbourne and stayed at the Ivydene Guest Hotel. Darren was very welcoming and helpful and replied to my emails promptly which aided getting away the next day. The rooms were very clean and had been recently refurbished. Lovely friendly atmosphere in the hotel. Would highly recommend this hotel if you want...

Ivydene Guest House is a wonderful place to stay because it is a very cosy, tasteful and clean house but especially the hospitality of Darren and Martin makes a stay great and really nice. The location is perfect. Not far from the beach and the city centre but also quiet. Nearby very good restaurants too. I am looking forward coming...

You can park on the road for free, though it does get busy, there are plenty of side streets around. it's really near the...

This is the second time I have used the Ivydene guest house. My first experience was fantastic and this time it had topped the last. The beautiful room had been cleaned to an impeccable standard. The friendliness and helpfulness from the staff could not be beaten; nothing is ever an issue. Just overall, the guest house is maintained at a...

Having made no reservation we found the ’Ivydene’ by pure chance - and what a stroke of luck it was! From the moment we rang the bell we were treated like good friends and felt comfortable at once. The house is meticulously clean - but in a cosy way! Breakfast is served punctual to the minute, cooked according to one’s...

What a refreshing change staying in a Guest House as opposed to corporate hotel. Darren was so helpful with my late check in and delayed trains. I was warmly welcomed and shown to my well equipped clean bedroom. Lovely comfortable bed, clean linen, quality towels etc. I slept really well, no noise or disruptions.

My wife and I booked a three night stay and were not disappointed. Darren gave us a warm welcome, explained everything and showed us to our room (15) which was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. You could order your breakfast the day before from a menu card and this was served freshly cooked, without any delay - delicious! Darren's...
