Your team behind this bed and breakfast

Husband and wife team, Tony & Lisa, own, run and live at The Guesthouse East B&B in Eastbourne.

Think classic mid-life crisis for Tony and a dash away from the corporate life – too many years in marketing, meeting rooms and murky politics. The international roles fed a love of travel.

Lisa has enjoyed a career in bringing up 5 children being Chief Family Organiser..

We like to think we understand what our guests are looking for, be it family-friendly accommodation, a romantic break or a base for a corporate stay.

A shift away from London has many advantages for a young family who love fresh air, the outdoor life and a beach at the end of the road!

Family affair

We’re genuinely proud of being placed 1st in The Independent’s ‘Top 50 B&Bs’ and reeceiving the ‘Highly Commended’ accolade for ‘B&B of the Year’ in the Beautiful South Awards.

Our irreverent blog has received some amazing recognition – it was named one of’s ‘Top 10 Travel Blogs’ and was a finalist in MyTravelmoney’s ‘Top 10 Lifestyle Blogs’.
