We slept 2 nites in that hotel. We had the family room as we went with my 2 boys. The bedroom is big enough for 4, the bathroom is big and really clean. breakfast is included in the price. You got lots of choice. its right in seafront. and it's well insulated as the festival was on but didn't hear... More

I recently stayed at this hotel. It was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was great, very central and opposite the beach. My only disappointment was the noise. The room above us was very noisy from 6am until 9.30am with what sounded like a child constantly running from one end to another.

Terrible rooms, but bathroom was really nice. Curtain and décor absolutely hideous, this is not a plush cosy hotel. We paid 99.00 on booking.com for this room and it was certainly not what we paid for. The man on reception was so rude to a young family as we all had to wait until 3.00pm to be able to get... More

The booking was done by my son through Booking.com because he could not get hold of hotel’s contact details. The hotel on first appearance was not that spectacular. However, we had a warm welcome by the young receptionist who has very pleasant manners. The room no. 209 was allocated to us which was near the lift. It was specious, comfortable... More

Walked into reception and was greeted by Basil Faulty who didn't have a clue where to get some decent food. Young lady on reception was the complete opposite. Shower in was scolding or freezing. Hard beds. Wouldn't stop here again. Although should expect what you pay for !

This hotel was huge and Victoria in architecture. However, once inside you are treated to a retro style circa 1960/70. With cool chandeliers and wacky coloured cushions in the bar you feel you are in a much more expensive place than your very reasonable room rate would have you expect. Once in the bedrooms some very clever 'doing up' of... More

The allocation of my room was not good, due to the view. After 1 night Ashley relocated me into a lovely side sea view room for the next 3 nights. Breakfast had a wide range of choice for a continental one. Come on you can get a full English for £3.50 or go large for a fiver (£5). The staff... More

We booked a top floor suite at the Big Sleep hotel for the night of the 2nd June. We arrived late & were warmly welcomed at reception and for £1 they provided us with a "hotel guest parking permit" which gave us free public parking for the whole of the following day. Our room was superb, spotlessly clean and from... More

This was our first stay at The Big Sleep in Eastbourne and we stayed for two nights. We went for a suite as they were the only rooms with sea views which we wanted. We were amazed at the spaciousness of our room and can't comment on any others. We loved to wake up in the morning in our huge... More
