Although only a 2 star, and the new owners have only been there couple of years, plenty of up dating to be done..our room was ok but shower rubbish.Hotel reasonable clean, but room for improvement..The new owners have loads to do, lower the bars prices, way over the top. Entertainment was ok.The only thing going for this hotel..was the food..no... More

Although a bit tired the food makes up for it,good choice and the waiters Fabian and Dario were extremely helpful.The owner Winston went out of his way to make sure that you have a good stay.The manager has a good knowledge of the area.Lastly the bed linen and towels were pristine.

We stayed here recently on a coach holiday. In an excellent position on the seafront. Our room was on the side and had a partial sea view. The rooms are in great need of refurbishment. Creeky floor-boards, old sash windows, tired mattress and a bathroom from several decades ago! The meals were ok, in fact breakfast was pretty good but... More

No ash trays for smokers in the entrance. Steps strewn with fag ends. Scruffy image. Stairs to enter and stairs into dining room. No disabled facility for this. Dining room was run by a manager more concerned with logistics than paying customers. We were told we weren't allowed to sit in the window seats,as a coach load may arrive! We... More

Have just spent two nights at this lovely Hotel. I booked it through uk breakaways. The room was well laid out for a single room but the bed could do with being replaced as it was a bit rickety. There was a nice TV & tea tray. The evening meals were super as was the breakfast. The Hotel is small,... More

I took my Mum (88) to Eastbourne for a week and stayed at this lovely hotel. Mum is in wheelchair so the steps up to the hotel door were a challenge (and so not suitable for anyone who cannot negotiate steps at all) The staff were fabulous, the food was great...lots of choice with a different menu each night. breakfasts...
