We chose a quiet time of the year to travel and we really enjoyed our short break in Eastbourne. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in the Waterside Hotel, which we had walked passed when we had visited Eastbourne in a previous year. The service and staff are very welcoming and this is what you need during a... More

This place was an absolute shambles from start to finish. We had booked 3 double rooms for a total of 5 people. When we checked in we were all booked into room 3, not 3 rooms! The towels were dirty and the bed was very uncomfortable. Also the room was ridiculously hot and we had to leave the window open... More

All in all, not a bad hotel but lots wrong. Staff friendly enough without being overly helpful. Rooms comfortable albeit a little small. No iron or ironing board, which is a bugbear of mine. Not having a lift is a issue when you are on the 3rd floor and have cases to carry & narrow staircases. Breakfast ok, albeit a... More

We had a relaxing weekend staying at the Waterside hotel. Staff were very friendly and the hotel was well presented inside. There were a few stairs to get up to our room. Breakfast was good too with a full English and cereal included. Parking was ok to find outside the hotel.

We were much looking forward to our stay here, but it was really rather average and far from 'special' as the hype on their website had led us to expect. Because of a booking muddle by staff, (which had been well-handled by manager Mark), we had been upgraded to the Sunset "ultimate ocean view suite". This turned out to be... More

My hubby annd I took advantage of a Groupon offer for two nights stay with full English breakfast included and were not disappointed. In fact, we were more than pleased with the choice we made. The staff are all very helpful and friendly, the room (a standard double) was a little on the small side but had everything we needed... More

Great location, 5mins from pier on seafront. Good full English & coffee. Our double room was small but it was their basic double. Saw a glimpse of their main rooms (called Sunrise & Sunset) & they looked a lot bigger with big bay windows overlooking the beach. Staff were extremely helpful although when we booked in for 2 nights they... More

this was excellent value at only £55 per night, including breakfast. The room was nice. The staff both evening and morning were really helpful and friendly - even sorting out breakfast for us even though we were 15 mins late.

Lovely place. Jacuzzi room was beautiful. Location is lovely just a short walk from pier and 45 mins walk to beachy head. Rooms are comfortable and massages are lovely. The top marks are for breakfast..... lovely and just the right size. Some places serve obscene amounts for a full english but this breakfast was simple classic and more about quality... More

We stayed for two nights in the sunrise room. The room was clean and pleasant but did not match the 'luxury experience' description on the website. It may have warranted it when it was first done but it is a bit tired now. Also the service was no more or less than you would expect from a seaside b&b but... More
