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

In fact we are always available - all you need have done was phone us and we would have dealt with it. In fact this was an... 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 as the owner actually was ill for most of your stay and only checked you out and so did not get the chance to meet you fully before hand. When we received... 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!!!

Lady at reception was very friendly, what a nice welcoming. Room was wonderful, nice bathroom, good shower. Lots of options during breakfast, all the usuals + extra. Mix up with veggie/non veggie sausages but quickly resolved. We were lucky to find a parking spot nearby. I can imagine that during summer periods and when there's a theatre performance it gets...

A wonderful visit yet again! I'd recommend Mowbray to my family and friends, as well as work colleagues too. I was warmly welcomed by Darren, and many of the staff were so warm too, and it makes one feel really warm, and friendly to.

My wife and I were down in Eastbourne for a RAF Association conference and we stayed at the Mowbray Hotel. It was very comfortable but most outstanding was the breakfasts they served; marvellous. We found the staff very helpful. The lift was quaint which you would have to experience. Teas and coffees in the front lounge were complimentary and we... More
