GUEST REVIEWS

Our guests love us, but don't just take our word for it! Here are some of our guest reviews.

"Really friendly and welcoming B&B in a good central location in Bexhill. Room clean and comfortable and a very good breakfast with lovely home made bread. No hesitation in recommending this B&B."

CHARMAIN WINNETT

"I stayed for one night on a flying visit. Great on all counts; hosting, room, breakfast, price. If you favour a B&B over a hotel, then The Barrington should be on your short list. Would certainly stay again."

KJD, BATH

"The room we had was very nice and clean and good value for money. The hotel is in an ideal location just minutes from the beach and easy walking distance from the rail station. There are also a number of nice places to eat nearby..."
