The moment you walk through the door you are welcomed by Jackie the main host and Brian. We usually visit to go to family events as we have family in Hastings and St Leonards-On-Sea; so we usually drop off our bags early and collect our keys and go off, so for us staying in and around the hotel is not the reason we go, but if that is what you are looking for then you have everything you need for an amazing stay.

The hotel itself has everything you could imagine. The rooms are spotless and every kind of room for every visitor from Solo to couples to families.

The rooms have a hospitality tray full of everything from hot chocolate, cappuccino, decaf and original coffee to Earl Grey and Breakfast tea choice to cream, milk and brown and white sugar. They also have biscuits and fresh bottled water with glasses and cups and if you require fresh milk or larger mugs they are in the utility room on the first floor. There is also cutlery, microwave washing and drying machines and a fridge for you to put things in to keep cool, etc.

The bathroom has hand soap dispenser and there is also shower and bath gel and a shampoo and the hand and body lotion, and the smells are gorgeous. We tend to use these as we usually only have 1 or 2 nights and it is easier than having to pack your own.

There is coffee and tea making facilities in the lounge and dining room area which is available all day if you would rather have company or just to be out of your room.

The breakfast is another story. There is just everything and if it is not home made it is sourced from local butchers and shops.

When we stayed there was fresh fruit of strawberries, blueberries, melon, oranges and grapefruit. Prunes de-stoned and dried apricots and figs. There was a seed and cranberry mixture. Lovely thick strawberry yoghurt and plain thick yoghurt. There was a huge store of different cereals both in packets and containers. You could have loads of different spreads and there was home made jam and thick cut dark marmalade which was scrummy on your table with butter.

You hade a wide selection of cooked breakfasts and continental with a selection of toast and again a selection of drinks for you to choose from.

Fresh fruit juices on the day we were there was cranberry, orange and apple and fresh milk.

I had scrambled egg which filled half the plate, bacon and tomatoes, all beautifully cooked.

We have stayed in 4+ and 5 star hotels abroad and none of them have had a breakfast like that or a hospitality tray in the room with so much choice on.

The hotel is situated just across from the Del-a-War-Pavilion and the seaside. Just around the corner you can walk up and get to the town centre and also the train station and there are restaurants of all types along the sea front and up many of the side streets and you have a beautiful promenade to walk along both ways.

We love going back to see everyone at the hotel and usually have to book early or else you will be disappointed.

Please give this hotel a go if undecided as it is beautiful and the hosts are the loveliest and you will enjoy your stay whatever the weather.

Room Tip: Front rooms have the best view but we have been in everyone and all amazing

This is the 6th year we have visited this gem of a bed and breakfast and once again it did not disappoint. Always a friendly welcome, spotlessly clean rooms with lots of extra touches... bottled water, freshmilk and fresh fruit always available. The breakfast choice is varied and always delicious with as much fresh tea and coffee as you would wish. Wether old or young you will always receive a warm welcome at Dunselma.

Room Tip: Front rooms have a sea view.

This really is the British seaside B&B at its best. The price at £80 for a double room was reasonable and the experience of staying there exceeded expectations. Terrific location overlooking the sea and just a couple of minutes walk from the De La Warr Pavilion where we were attending a wedding. The room was comfortable and spacious, the breakfast top class, and home made cake arrived at tea time. All this plus free parking opposite - a nice touch from friendly and professional hosts. Apparently, Dunselma is an old English word meaning 'house with a view' - you can see to Beachy Head

I've just come home from an overnight stay at this excellent B&B in Bexhill. From start - being given a free parking pass - to finish - having a friendly goodbye from Mein Host - an extremely enjoyable experience. I was there for a family wedding and a cousin bumped into me as I was entering Dunselma, saying that he couldn't get into his B&B. The lovely landlady ushered us both up to my room, reappearing shortly with a pot of tea for two and some delicious homemade cake! My room was bright, spacious and scrupulously clean. This morning's breakfast was a revelation. Real jam and marmalade (homemade), not those awful little glass jars, and butter in a lidded butter dish. Call me old fashioned, but attention detail like this is rare. Nice selection of options for brekkie, I helped myself to fresh fruit and lovely thick yoghurt, followed by the 'full English'. Absolutely delicious! This is the best guest house I've ever stayed in, and is a great deal better than many hotels I've used too. Can't recommend it highly enough!

I recommended this Guest House to family attending an event and they were not disappointed, in fact they loved it! They said that Jackie made them feel very welcome and they were impressed by the attention to detail. They would definitely book into the Dunselma again and believe me that is high praise
