We booked The Waterside for a last-minute break for the bank-holiday weekend and what a very good find it was! It's been years since my last visit to Eastbourne and it was a good excuse to get out of London for a couple of days and breath some sea air. We had some lovely weather, too, which always helps.

Pros: Great location on the seafront, parking at £1 per overnight stay just outside and reasonably priced rooms for B&B. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Cons: There is no lift and the stairways were painted very dark blue, are very narrow, with very little lighting and no windows and totally airless so getting up the 6 or 7 flights... More

Have to say that we were really pleased with our stay at the Waterside. Our room was lovely and clean and the next morning we were presented with a lovely breakfast. Staff were also very friendly and helpful.

Myself and my partner chose Waterside Hotel, Eastbourne to spend a mini trip away. We couldn't fault the staff at all - all we met were helpful, friendly, smiley and charming, they are a real asset to the hotel! The hotel itself was lovely and looked very well decorated from the outside and was right on the beach which made... More

My wife and I stayed here last night. Very friendly and informative welcome from the receptionist. Room very clean and nicely decorated. Bed comfy. Breakfast (choice and size) good. Hotel well located being between (what's left of) the pier and the old town. Recommended.

Booked a room with a sea view on a voucher. Arrived and found the hotel parked for free at a side road very close. The car remained there for the two nights we stayed. The hotel is very central, easily walkable to all the shops and restaurants which was great. The staff very laid back but attentive. The room on... More

Went on a special offer, which made it affordable. Otherwise very expensive - but may be the typical price of the area? Staff very helpful when we had to change the dates of our booking twice due to a funeral and a meeting! Nice big room, with lovely views out on to the seafront. Would have been nice to have... More

My mother and I saw this hotel online and liked the look of it and its close proximity to the sea and town centre. We both are walking disabled so contacted the hotel prior to booking to see what facilities there were for disabled guests. After discussion with the hotel, who explained that there were steps up to the hotel... More

The service was excellent from start to finish & the hotel was lovely, modern, fresh & clean. The spa treatments... More

Check in was quick and efficient. Our Jacuzzi room was a good size with tv, kettle and plenty of wardrobe space for a short break (only 4 coat hangers though so bring some if you need them). The room was very clean although would benefit from a little bit of maintenance around the edges (grout mildew, scuffs etc). Due to... More
