A lovely small hotel where the staff are excellent. They have an obvious passion for the comfort and enjoyment of their guests and a real appreciation of what a visitor needs. I cannot rate my stay higher and will definitely be staying at this hotel on my next visit to Eastbourne. Oh...the breakfast is awesome. :)

Like most hotels in Eastbourne this small hotel is old and full of character . It has been very well updated and decorated by the owners who are very friendly and accommodating. Our room was on the third floor but there is a charming old fashioned lift if required and the room was very clean , comfortable, and well appointed... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a problem with our shower, but this was fixed within hours - very impressive! The breakfast was second to none - lots of variety and excellent quality. The Mowbray is very close to the seafront, theatres, local shops and shopping centres. There are so many restaurants in the... More

This is a lovely, modern, comfortable hotel. We loved the breakfast as the quality of foods was so good - an array of lovely fresh fruits was a feature. We enjoyed the hot drinks and pastries which we were served on arrival. Very comfortable room with tea and coffee, nice bathroom products and decor

This was a pleasant hotel but didn't set the world on fire, breakfast was good and the staff with very friendly. We had someone on site who caused a few issues through the night and it kept us awake for three hours. The problem was that there wasn't any manager on site to deal with the disturbance and it wasn't... More

Issues with the hot water, and bathroom in general. Angela is lovely and friendly and cannot do enough for you, but Darren is most definitely the business end. No effort what so ever from him, only spoke to us about money etc. He also asked me if we had used anything from the "honesty' bar, not exactly honest! The bar... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and the reality of the stay was in line with the reviews. Very hospitable owner; good clean rooms; nice bathroom; plentiful breakfast - no complaints. The hotel even has a lift which is rare in small places these days. It's in a great location in Eastbourne, will definitely recommend.

I stayed here for a week and I didn't want to leave. The staff couldn't be more helpful and the location is superb. Right opposite the beautiful Devonshire park theatre and only a tiny walk to the beach!!!!! Very clean, comfortable rooms and the breakfast's are excellent! I'm booked to go again already!!!
