About The Wellington Bed & Breakfast
The town of Seaford is a quiet seaside resort in East Sussex, U.K. It is located on the foot of the South Downs, a range of hills stretching from Winchester to Eastbourne. It is a great place to have a break. These days the town is sometimes overshadowed by nearby Newhaven, as one of the main ports on the South Coast. During the middle ages, however, the main port was Seaford. The town gained its importance as the mouth of the river Ouse, but this importance was not to last.
The river suffered from silting, which made traffic difficult, and the town also suffered from repeated attacks by French Pirates. The town was repeatedly burned down and rebuilt in the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. In those days the locals had a reputation for looting and causing shipwrecks. For many, the main attraction in Seaford is the beach. This has an obvious attraction in the summer, when the sea reaches temperatures up to 20 degrees Celsius. But the sea is equally attractive in the winter.
The town has a shopping centre, with enough shops to spend a good afternoon looking around. If shopping is a must, both Eastbourne and Brighton are about half hour away on either side of the town. For the out-and-abouts there is plenty of hills to get on with, as we are situated at the foot of a hill range called the South Downs. The Seven Sisters Country Park is just around the corner, and so is the famous Long Man of Wilmington, a massive feature carved out in the rocks.
** Please note, The Wellington does not have its own car park, but there is however 2 car parks located close by and street parking right outside **

Second time we have stayed here and once again faultless for everything. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the room was spotlessly clean and smelt fresh, the breakfast was more than enough. Fantastic place to stay will certainly be visiting again and recommending to friends and family!

What a beautiful place we found. I cannot say a bad thing about this hotel. From the time we walked through the door, the staff were so attentative. The room was so comfortable and well equipped. The food was great, and great to have offers every day. The icing on the cake was on Sunday ,they were so busy, bot Rosseta kept us a roast for when we got back from our long walk. Thankyou so much to all staff at The Wellington for giving us a lovely memorable stay. We will be back and recommend to friends.xx

We arrived at The Wellington two hours before check in to be greeted at the bar by the lovely Emma (whose name we learned later that evening - apologies to those we did learn in time). All the staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room itself was spotlessly clean, full to the brim with goodies and with a great view of the coast. We would definitely return to the Wellington again.
Room Tip: Only four rooms but they all look good. Ours was superb.
