Well..this page could have been blank...the gates were closed + no entry was possible to the loos in Town Hall Square.. This convenience is VERY in-convenient!
Upon asking around it seems they have been shut for several years now. The local taxi drivers are really P____D off (sic) with this situation as its the nearest loo for them to use, (+ their customers). It seems that in the recent past these loos have had serious vandalism issues especially from roving gangs + customers of The Castle pub.
One cheeky cabbie, John we believe, said that the loos are now being used to store ongoing open files RE council tax non-payers.. but we think that's another Bexhill Urban Myth! They are actually a smoking shed for Sainsburys staff.. butt we may never be privy to know the reality.
So if your 'caught short' in the square people + want them re-opened you just have to pop over the road to HQ (RDC Town Hall) + write a letter.
If you go onto the 'Ask the Leader a question' for Rother http://www.rother.gov.uk/article/146/Ask-the-Leader
then this does what it says on the tin..
May all your discharges be good ones
Ps We are a bit burnt out doing all these Public loos just recently, it's hard going.. Someone suggested we have a change + "Do the De La Warr toilets luvvie.. the're really posh..Nice Art in them.."
OK DLWP it is then..Wonder if it's open in the near future?

2nd Toilet review for Bexhill (mens side)
Next up are Channel View ...
We were pleasantly surprised with these toilets..Maybe it's because lots of 'out of towners', + workmen don't realise they are there...
The cubicles are really clean and the whole place smelt really good..(amazingly)
There have been attempts made at a sort of colour scheme, personalisation and who ever looks after these loos seems to care..
We know they are subject to regular vandalisation but locking the Iron gate to Channel View early seems to keep out the Teenage Hash smokers.. They don't seem to be the problem however, it's adults who have had too much alcohol!
Still one major gripe is again NO changing facility for men with their kids.. we see lots of guys around town now with prams..
Rother this needs sorting out please!
It's not fair that we have to 'dodge' into the womens to change that nappy!
We can recommend this loo to everyone.. As they say.. 'Please leave as you wish to find it..
PS Been 'disapointed, disgusted, or even highly delighted with any loo in Bexhill? Private or public? Give us a bell, well e-mail actually.. + we will give it an inspection.. Gratis

God it's been pretty horrendous on the whole.. We have been to them all recently and here is the initial feedback.
Devonshire Square loos (Mens side)
No 1 in the shocking stakes..
As you enter the premises you are hit by a nasal wall of faeces, cheap disinfectant, with overtones of last nights vomit and cheap alcohol. Nothing prepares you for this and if you haven't eaten breakfast you bid a hasty retreat..some things are just not worth using this loo for..
Is it the early morning heavy use of this loo by local workmen, + commuters that makes it so offensive?
The harsh neon lights and cold foreboding nature of the x4 sit down (if you dare) cubicles.. really only for the most desparate.. Obviously no one has thought to put in a changing baby surface, men after all don't do those things..
There was some debate between us as to whether the place was being used as a 'cottage' for meetups.. but it closes a bit early for that particular crowd.
The only 1 +ve thing we could report..we tried long and hard.. was that the toilet paper is now pretty soft, the place used to haave the wonderful 'Medicated Izal' boxes which reminded one of 00 grade sandpaper when using it.. That's if your lucky to find any paper..!
On the whole pretty rough + only for dire emergencies..
When we have recovered we will do No. 2 review.. We think it will be the seafront on Channel View...

Howdy all..as the title suggests we have been 'comissioned' to do a 'Bexhill Toilet' review recently..
We are currently working our way around all the usual suspects! It's pretty awful generally especially the Public ones.. but we will be naming and shaming them all soon.
After much consideration and debate it will be along the lines of this beautiful site..
I think you can get a 'taste' of how things are gonna be!
Must fly + get some more pics..
