Guest house blog wins recognition

A BLOG written by an Eastbourne guest house has been named in the UK’s top ten by an influential website.

The four-star Guesthouse East’s online offering beat off competition from lifestyle and travel bloggers across the country to make travel website’s list.

The Guesthouse East was taken over in 2009 by Carl and Sarah Stanger and the pair have regularly updated their blog with tales about settling into life on the Sussex coast and their guests ever since.

Eastbourne Borough Council’s head of tourism, Councillor Neil Stanley, was among the first to praise the site.

He said, “Guesthouse East’s blog makes a good, honest read, giving online visitors a realistic and insightful view into the town and the life of an Eastbourne guest house.”
