We booked a last minute weekend away! The hotel is absolutely spotless! The room was great, plenty room, tea/coffee facilities, tv and seemed to be a new shower room. The breakfast was great, plenty to eat. Bonus to get a parking voucher for £1 fir the whole day/night. We will definitely be staying again soon!

My Mum and I stayed at the Vernon guesthouse a couple of weekends ago. The staff were excellent, especially our waiter in the mornings and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were so tidy, cleaned immaculately every morning and the linen was spotless. Our bathroom was huge and newly fitted. The location is great, 30 seconds from the seafront... More

So what do you want from a guest house? A friendly and genuinely warm welcome? Tick. Clean and well presented rooms? Tick. Room 7, the suite, was great; the balcony with a sea view was very relaxing. A really comfortable bed? Tick. A good breakfast? Tick. An owner who makes you feel welcome ("This is your home for the next... More

Just returned from the Vernon & my expectations were more than exceeded. It was the very last room available to us to stay for the Eastbourne Airshow. The room was clean, comfortable, recently decorated & well fitted out. We stayed for a lovely breakfast which was delicious & generous. The staff were very friendly & helpful.

This is situated very centrally to access to beach, shops or Devonshire Park. Room was very clean, large and a reasonably good breakfast. The only complaint I had was the wooden bed frame was too short for my 6'2" partner who could not stretch out - worth checking. I'm not sure if all rooms are the same.

A lovely clean guesthouse with welcoming staff and clean fresh rooms. No bar so if you want a drink you need to go out but that's really not a criticism - easy commute to Brighton and breakfast is loving prepared and served to your liking Town centre and train stations a two minute walk away

We stayed this weekend and it's not our normal hotel. Well we'll be using it again! Great host who let us use the garden for our grandchildren so they could visit. We didn't make breakfast as we always lie in but it was available until 10am which is great! The room we had was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Great... More

The hotel is very nice and it really has a character!!! We stayed only for one night but honestly we wished that our trip would never end. The room was beautiful, cozy and we were very impressed for the cleanless as well. The location is perfect too, very close to the sea, train station and basically to everything. The hotel... More
