Host Info

Host Review Score 9.4

The Iverna was built in the early 1830,s on the eastern side of the town in the old fishing area of Eastbourne and retains very much of it,s old charm and quaintness with a very homely feel . We are a traditional type of bed and breakfast directly on the sea front and offer a excellent service with clean facilities .We have 6 rooms all serviced and maintained by Richard who also cooks a wonderful breakfast . We do regrettably live in a area of Eastbourne that has very poor internet connection so cannot offer a WiFi connection .

I like to go to antique fairs and collectables shops in Hastings and Lewes .

Set behind the World Gardens on Eastbourne's sea front the terraced property dates back to the Victorian times and was built as a gentleman's house and converted to a bed and breakfast pre 1959 .
