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

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...

There is free WiFi .the breakfast was always fresh and hot,with refills of tea and toast if required. The evening meals were great, (gravy second to none) fresh home made soup. The waiting staff...

A budget price at 4 star care from the very polite and attentive staff. The food was very good....even though you have to chose in the morning what you want for the evening meal.... More
