“fee for credit cards”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

Warm, clean and comfortable. Beautifully decorated and the design is excellent. Our bedside lights were a triumph of design over practicality (don't other folk read in bed?). We were asked to pay a 2% fee when paying by credir card.

Thank you for your lovely review it was so nice to meet you both.
It's the credit card company that charge the 2% I don't make anything. .
This is the reason I always write this on the confirmation I send out so guests so they are aware before they are arrive.
Therefore guests can then pay cash or by debit cards which most do
Hope to see you again in future.

My fiancee and I were greeted with a very warm welcome by Patrick and Gwen after a very long drive. The room was perfect with very high standards of cleanliness. Loriston is ideally located near the promenade & beach in Eastbourne. A wonderful cooked breakfast - top class! .... and nothing is too much trouble.Patrick and Gwen are great hosts, their attention to every detail is outstanding and, in our opinion(as guest house owners), you will never be disappointed here. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Loriston!! We hope to visit again soon.

A fantastic place to stay whether visiting short or long term in a brilliant locale just off the promenade. Gwen and Patrick provide a hospitable environment in a most welcoming style and were more than willing to give helpful advice or just a friendly chat. Luxuriously presented while holding a homely feel, supplemented with touches of humour for those with a keen eye. Patrick's breakfast are wonderful and top off all round wonderful stay.

Definitely one of the better B&B i've ever stayed in and would happily recommend to anyone!

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights, we wish that it was longer but we will definitely go back.
Gwen & Patrick are superb hosts and Patrick cooks a fantastic breakfast, The bedroom was incredible with the most comfortable bed that we have slept in away from home, very clean and beautifully furnished.Great location just off the seafront.
Thank you Gwen & Patrick see you again soon.
