The best thing I can say about this hotel is that we opted for the two night deal and not the three nights. We travelled on an N crowd deal so expected the basic package but we were offered an upgrade for £30 (which we had to pay in cash unusually) which we accepted. For this were given a tiny... More

Bought voucher for 3 night stay. Called 4-5 times trying to book. Always told call back, no availability. Finally called and got booking, little over two weeks in advance. Was even called back same day and confirmed, so booked time off work. After the nightmare of booking, I called to confirm week before and guess what? No booking and no... More

Good: clean, very good location to town. Bad: staff were unfriendly- even getting me some ice for my drink was an ordeal. Breakfasts are precooked and the sausage was rock hard as was the egg. Room was damp and the shower did not work AT ALL because we were on the third floor so there was no pressure. Beds were... More

I recently took a trip to Eastbourne, which took an hour and a half. Being pregnant, I was busting by the time I got there, and parked opposite the Alexandra Hotel, but was unable to find a public toilet anywhere. I went to the hotel, explained my situation and that my son who was with me was also partially sighted,... More

This hotel is moderately priced. We had a sea view room and somehow it was fine despite looking very tired. The staff were helpful in the extreme and i couldn't bring myself to give it less than 5 stars for that reason.

My wife and I, plus two friends, enjoy having 4/5 day breaks around the UK. Our last trip was a Turkey and Tinsel 5 day break at this hotel. I can truthfully say, that this is the very best value for money, we have ever received. The food and service was excellent, plus nightly entertainment. The hotel was typically a... More
