My sister and I spent two nights here while touring the area. Our twin room was on the side of the hotel with a lovely view of the sea and was very comfortable. We found the décor quirky and fun with the furry curtains and bed bases. The room was clean with plenty of tea and coffee provided. Wifi was... More

This hotel was easy walk from the station and en route to Beachy Head so a great location. The room was basic but clean - the muppet like furry curtains and bed base might not be to everyone's liking but made us laugh! Breakfast was yummy - the warm mini croissants were delicious!

Selected this place for its location and quiet location at the end of the sea front. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was basic but suited our needs. Bedroom was fine if a bit dated looking can understand the point other reviewers mention about the fury look to the room and fury curtains. Would stay again... More

This is our second time - this year, in the big sleep Eastbourne. We stumbled into Eastbourne as Brighton was quite full. Came for one night and stayed a week. Mum enjoyed it so much - we booked for another week. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. My mum is in a wheelchair, I have two kids and a... More

I checked the other reviews for the hotel on here before booking, and thought it would be a modern, cool, and fresh hotel. I was wrong. The hotel looks shabby and outdated from the outside, and this continues as you make your way into the lobby, having to walk over a disability lift and ducking under the metal arms hanging... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in July. Check in not until 3 pm so we were able to leave luggage and return. Reception staff were all friendly. Room was clean, little rough around the edges, but was fit for purpose and met our needs. Complimentary shower gel and handwash, tv tea making facilities and hairdryer. Room had a partial sea...

Four of us, ages between 20s-late 60s, stayed for four nights. We thought the hotel really good value. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was a good range of basic tasty food to fill up and star the day. The staff friendly and helpful and the whole atmosphere with the carefully chosen quirky interior design was chilled and... More

Was really pleased with the hotel. I stayed here with my husband the night of our wedding and they were very helpful. They let us have friends into the room who weren't staying. Great sized room and an amazing view!
