To be greeted by tea scones and jam after a long delayed train journey and given a superb comfortable twin room beautifully decorated was just the start. The place is beautifully appointed and ideally located right on the seafront and close to some nice little restaurants and cafes. Breakfast was good too with a wide choice on the menu. Thoroughly recommend.

Single night stay as we were attending a friends party in the area. Just myself and my wife, we had the large room on the first floor. The hotel is perfectly located and we received a very friendly welcome from Jackie. Pot of tea for us if we wanted it!

The room was great, large, everything you need and cracking big windows looking out to sea.

Breakfast was fantastic, cereals and fruit etc as you would expect - Full English was cooked to perfection.

This is about as good as it gets in traditional English B&B hospitality - we will be back!

Room Tip: Room 6 was perfect

Very friendly welcome. Cup of tea and slice of sponge cake on arrival. Beautiful room overlooking Marina. Good selection of food for breakfast. Cereals and a good selection of sliced fresh fruit. My husband had a full English, and I had scrambled egg with smoked salmon. We will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Front of hotel overlooking Marian and sea

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.
