I went here a few years ago and due to having to go to a funeral wake in the nearby Grand Hotel with tea, thought we would make a night of it - I got a good rate of £45 which was great value and the room was nice, neutrally decorated at the back of the hotel which was fine... More

The room was average and clean. Only stayed for one night but suited our purpose perfectly. Was very quite and had a good sleep. The staff were polite but we found that the breakfast was unclear on what you had to pay for and what was included in what we had already paid.

Situated on the sea front at Eastbournes the Big Sleep is in a fantastic location. The rooms were spacious, clean and well decorated. The bathroom was a good size (with a bath!). The staff were friendly and helpful. We opted to upgrade the breakfast for £3.50 which included all the continental breakfast options with a cooked breakfast as well.

The Big Sleep, is very good value for an hotel on the sea front in Eastbourne. It's clean, modern, simple (minimalist, even), comfortable and convenient with helpful staff. In fact, it's nicer on the inside than the exterior would lead you to believe. Our room was bigger than we anticipated. It's a short(ish), bracing walk along the "prom" from the... More

Good location on the front, parking by permit from the hotel for just a £1 on the street, big large rooms with funky curtains, however small SQUARE TV could do with updating and the bed is so squeaky we had to pull the mattress onto the floor and sleep on it there. The bathroom was clean, the continental breakfast is... More

Ok negative in a nut shell check in is an inconvenience to the staff here. Parking is by permit but again an inconvenience for the staff. Internet access is extortionate and charged by the hour, rooms are cheaply furnished, TVS are barely tuned and bathrooms need a refurb. We had gone for a suite expecting some nice features but we...
