I stayed here with my husband and one year old. I found this hotel typical of a Travelodge standard (although a Travelodge may have been better). The carpet was dirty when we got in, so I asked someone to hoover this up and they got that done. The room had a bath in and a working shower. The bed made... More

Well what can I say... It was the cheapest hotel I could find but what we discovered explains this. The staff are great, we could not fault them, the rooms however are a complete joke. I had to swap with another couple I was with because you could barely move in it and we removed the disturbing picture on the... More

List of things WRONG with this 'budget' hotel 1.Stated on booking that we would require a travel cot for a toddler, this was confirmed in the confirmation of the booking, when we arrives, alas no travel cot. Lucky I bought one from home just in case. 2. Having stated that we required a travel cot, you'd have thought the staff... More

When me and my boyfriend booked this Hotel, we were attracted to the modern edge.... and this is not what it was! The curtains were furry which to me, looked tacky. The fur was also around the edge of the bed which was strange. Another thing, when we arrived, the toilet roll that was provided on the holder was half... More

Don't be fooled by the "stylish" words that people use to describe this hotel. It might have looked good when they built it, but those furry curtains and bed and the student-type wardrobe are anything but "cool". The room was hot, no air conditioning, and the window would just open an inch or so. But what really disappointed me was... More

We was going to cancel but as it was last minute we were unable! The only good thing about this hotel is the location, it is great to be right on the sea front. Bad points- room was boiling hot with no aircon or fan, wasn't able to open windows ( only ajar), overall the room needed updating, we were... More

We needed needed a room at short notice in Eastbourne and for a good price. I'd been to the Big Sleep before on business so checked out the room rates and was impressed. Booking was very easy over the phone, I tried over the Internet and that's my only criticism; that there wasn't instant booking available, we would have had... More

We stayed at the Big Sleep for a few weeks in March as we were on business on the South Coast and were very surprised after reading some of the reviews. Our room - a double - was HUGE and very very clean. Same as some other reviews, we were a bit bemused by the faux fur curtains, but they... More
