Basic but very clean rooms and bed linen. Good buffet breakfast. Choice of cereals, fruit, toast etc. Cooked breakfast if required (buffet only in price) Polite and very helpful staff. Only stayed for one night but a pleasant experience. Great value for money.

Lovely big & warm room in an excellent location with a nice view over the sea. Comfortable bed and generously sized bathroom with 2 showers - one over the bath & one stand alone wet room affair. Walk in wardrobe with plenty of storage space. Inclusive breakfast simple but plentiful with a cooked option at a budget price - although... More

Nothing good about this place except for the location. Very cheap but certainly not cheerful.Bed base was made of hardboard and split at sides. Shower great but screen not long enough hence toilet & floor got very wet. Heating didn't come on until 8pm despite being cold at 5pm. In fact it's like a doss house & clientele very suspect... More

You know what it's like when you get a good feeling about a place and it turned up trumps? You almost don't want the bubble to burst, but you check in another time anyway? SO glad we did! You really can't fault this place. It's the most extraordinary value for money and caters to a real mixed lot. In fairness,... More

Booked for an overnight state prior to a family funeral. Requested a sea view and they arranged this for me. Room was fine, bathroom clean. Breakfast was continental, with the option to upgrade to a cooked one. Staff were lovely. Blue furry curtains!! For price and location you can't go wrong!

Slightly better than average, but not enough for a "GOOD" Very bright & spacious room, which was its best point. Bed was a bit creaky and I could hear the people above pacing about. Wi-Fi cost was extortionate, so didn't bother, but its free if you can get a signal from the sea front. Included a continental breakfast (very good)... More

Compared to all the usual hotels in Eastbourne that seem to be stuck in 1950s this is a breath of fresh air... modern furnishings, clean, excellent value for money and well situated for the Congress Theatre and Winter Gardens. Plenty of on street parking nearby - the hotel participates in the scheme where you can buy a parking permit for... More
