Testimonials

“The Barrington is one of the best B&Bs I have ever used. It’s spotlessly clean, the hosts are friendly and welcoming and can’t do enough for their guests. Breakfast is first class both in terms of quality and choice (I love their wonderful toast!), and the rooms (which are all en-suite) are comfortable with all the facilities you could want including soft towels and fresh toiletries. It’s centrally located within easy reach of shops and restaurants, two minute walk from the train station. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Bexhill or surrounding area, and would recommend it to anyone. Oh, and the wifi is free and works”!

“I stayed here for one night before a meeting. The place is spotless and very well maintained. The greeting was friendly and the breakfast was excellent. They accommodated all my wishes. Would definitely recommend this to any visitors. Parking after 6 pm is free in the street outside and it is a short walk into the main town for restaurants etc or the beach”.

“I’ve stayed at the Barrington over many years and this is the best visit so far. Clean and tidy and an excellent breakfast with homemade bread. Even though it was four years since my last visit I was remembered and made to feel welcome. Situated in the centre of Bexhill-on-Sea and just a couple of minutes from the train station this is ideal for a short visit or stay over the summer to visit the beach and local sights. Added to this Bexhill has undergone a facelift and looks a whole lot smarter. Recommended and judging by the number of guests popular too”.

“We made a late booking for the August Bank Holiday weekend and were lucky to be given the family suite at a double rate. The hosts were extremely welcoming and friendly. The accommodation was clean and fresh. The breakfasts were immense. All-in all thoroughly deserving of a 5 star B&B rating”.

“I have been staying at this marvellous B&B for a few years now. The welcome you get is second to none, nothing is too much trouble for Jenny & Steve (Proprietors).
The rooms are clean and comfortable with en-suites in every room.
The choice of breakfast is wonderful, with fruit/cereal/full English and choice of fruit juices.
Their homemade bread is to die for – delicious.
I would highly recommend this B&B, you won’t, I guarantee be disappointed if you choose to stay here.
Also central for shops, beach etc.
Looking forward to my next stay already”.

“The epitome of all that a good English B&B should be, but often isn’t. Hosts are engaging, ready to please yet unobtrusive. The accommodation is spotless and modern, down to adequate towels and free bottles of daily water left in room. I requested soya milk and croissants, which may not be standard fare, yet were supplied without a quibble.
All considered, this is exactly how it should be done. I stayed a weekend with my partner and I can heartily recommend this B&B. 5* !!”

“Thanks for making us feel at home, Jenny and Steve! Room 4 was perfect for us. Delicious breakfast, even for our continental taste:)…The kids loved our ‘little purple vacation house by the sea’, and we didn’t hit our head once! :)”

“This place is such a gem. The owners couldn’t have been more welcoming and were so warm and friendly. The room was clean, light and airy and the shower was great. The location was ideal and very quiet. They even happily provided me with a vegan breakfast. I just can’t recommend this place highly enough.”

“I stayed in room 3 for 2 nights while visiting family and was exceptionally impressed by comfortable, modern and scrupulously clean accommodation. Breakfast was a joy, especially Jenny’s home-made bread and Steve’s coffee. This is the best place I have ever stayed, perfect night’s sleep in a comfortable bed and the most thoughtful and accommodating hosts who genuinely made me feel I belonged there. I highly recommend a stay at The Barrington and intend to visit again in the future.”

Went to a gig at the De La Warr pavilion and was looking for a place to stay and chose the Barrington and so glad we did. a lovely place run by lovely people who can’t do enough for you. If your down that way and looking for somewhere to stay I would highly recommend it. Room was lovely and clean and breakfast was perfect.

We have stayed here on 3 occasions (the first without a prior booking) and whole heartedly recommend the Barrington. We have always been made really welcome and been impressed by quality of the accommodation and the outstanding breakfasts. Jenny and Steve are very flexible and willing to go the extra mile every time.

We booked this B&B at very short notice, when we arrived we had a very warm and friendly welcome, the rooms were spotless and comfortable, had to leave before breakfast but the options were very good.
Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area.

The B&B was lovely, very clean and our hosts wonderful people. They could not do enough for us all. There were 8 of us staying. My parents used the twin, my brother and his wife used the double and myself, husband and 2 children used the family room. All rooms were spacious and lovely. We all would recommend this B&B. it’s only a few steps to the seafront and the breakfast was to die for!! 10/10.

Sue Rathbone and family

An excellent b and b perfectly positioned 2 minutes from the station and 5 mins to the sea. Very friendly hosts who obviously enjoy giving their guests the best experience. We had a lovely room which was spotlessly clean and had a large ensuite shower room. Excellent breakfast, a good choice, we had the delicious full English with homemade bread toasted. They have even won ‘A Good Breakfast’ award. They were happy for us to leave our luggage after checking out until we collected it before our train home in the afternoon. We would definitely stay again if we return to Bexhill.

My fiancee and I have just stayed at The Barrington for 2 nights and we both loved it!

Jenny and Steve were incredibly genial hosts, we enjoyed their company immensely. The location was central and our room was spotless. Breakfast catered to both our needs – I went for the full English while my fiancee preferred the selection of fruits and home-made bread. All were superb!

We’d recommend The Barrington wholeheartedly. If you’re planning a visit to Bexhill, its a lovely B&B furbished to a good standard and the owners clearly take a great deal of pride in providing a great experience.

3 nights stay in this spotlessly clean B&B  very warm and friendly welcome from the owners, very good breakfast. the situation is great too near the beach , high street shops and station. Highly recommended.

My girlfriend and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago for one night. We chose Bexhill and the Barrington completely at random, just to get away from the city for a couple of days. The Barrington did not disappoint and neither did the lovely little town. Very interesting gallery in the pavilion and a great walk and views along the coast. Would have loved to stay longer, even if just for the morning fry up! Went down a treat. Jenny and Steve were lovely people, and couldn’t have shown more interest in us. Very accommodating and friendly. Thanks to them we had a lovely base to visit somewhere new!

Having recently spent a week at the Barrington I can say it is an excellent B & B.
It is situated in a side street, on one side just a few minutes from the railway station, and on the other the road continues down to the beach road.
The rooms and en-suite bathrooms have been recently refurbished to a very high standard and everything is spotlessly clean. Additionally, the rooms (I looked at several) are well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. Not only tea making facilities (which include a teapot) but also hot chocolate and biscuits are provided and replenished each day as is the bottle of drinking water. Bathroom toiletries are more than adequate and the shower functioned well (not always the case in the UK). The breakfast was excellent and freshly cooked to your order each morning Additionally Greek Yoghurt and various fresh fruit and cereals are available. The owner bakes her own bread and makes her own marmalade, both of which are excellent.
The owners are a lovely couple, very friendly and will do anything to make your stay comfortable. An excellent B & B.

We stayed 1 night at Jenny and Steve’s gorgeous B and B! Arrived late, we’re warmly welcomed and given a brilliant recommendation for dinner. Amazing breakfast in the morning with the works! Spotlessly clean and very pretty. Highly recommended and terrific value. Great hosts! Thanks for making us feel like we were family!

I stayed at The Barrington for one night in March 2012 when I attended a school union at the De la ware pavillion. From the minute I arrived I was made to feel very welcome by Jenny and Steve. The room was lovely and clean and I had a great nights sleep. The full English breakfast was superb and kept me going on my journey home. Nothing was too much trouble for my hosts who even posted my jacket back to me which I had left behind! I would highly recommend The Barrington and will stay here again when I return to Bexhill.

Spent one night with Jenny and Steve at their wonderfully run guest house and both my wife (Asih) and I felt not only welcome and well looked after, we both would have no problem at all going back and staying again. We where just sorry we only had one night. Hope we can find a good reason of going back soon.

We only stayed one night but were made very welcome. The room was very clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was good quality and plenty of it! We wish Steve and Jenny all the best in what is a very competitive business – we are sure they will do well.
