We arrived and there was plenty of parking outside. Be very careful with parking attendants though, we just got to our car in time. Eva on Reception promptly issued us with a parking permit and said to use it immediately. Thank goodness we did as the parking attendant was there already. Check in was 2pm and we arrived at 10.30am.... More

I was on a business trip to Eastbourne and for the second time I booked into the da Vinci Hotel. I was in a single room with a bath.....all clean and everything worked....nice and fresh and modern, altho' the white walls would benefit from a lick of paint to cover the inevitable marks from chairs etc. Better quality towels would...

It was easy to book online and we got a good rate, especially because it was a week before Easter. Warm and friendly welcome and the room was brilliant. It was fresh, contemporary and stylish, very clean and warm. Excellent shower. The hotel is very close to the town centre for shopping and the sea front. It is also only... More

Do not be put off by the external appearance! Like many white stucco buildings near the English seaside, it needs constant redecoration; and that is probably prohibitive and certainly does not affect the enjoyment of the inside one bit. In fact, when you walk through the main door, it looks and feels as if you have entered an entirely different... More

Just stayed one night. Good price. Nice room facing the road (which is not very busy). Room comfortable and spacious. Friendly and efficient service. Those who commented about the smell of bacon are correct, it's a bit overpowering as it wafts up to the bedroom. Breakfast was fine - though could do with some fresh fruit maybe.

Thank you for your kind review and apologies for the smell of bacon which is usually a problem for our rear rather than front rooms. We are pursuing the issue of breakfast smells but having a few challenges as any extraction would impact on our neighbour’s flats. In the meantime, we suggest you book early and avoid the back rooms…101,... More

How excited am I to see another 5/5 this month….my staff will be asking for a bonus so I better keep quiet. Anyway, thank you for your lovely comments and the description which I reckon could be used in our next publicity brochure. We appreciate your review and hope you will be back here again real soon.

We booked a couple of nights at the last minute and were not disappointed with our choice. Parking outside was easy and a parking permit was given to us immediately upon check in. The reception area and beyond was fresh clean and attractive with several artworks on display. The room was modern, well furnished and clean. The only drawback was... More

I popped by Eastbourne whilst on a roadtrip with my girlfriend and we ended up staying two nights because it's just so lovely. Located right on the seafront, the Da Vinci is nestled away in a quiet road and yet you can see the sea from the front windows. The artwork throughout the hotel gives it an expensive feel -... More

Wow. What a great review and thank you for taking the time to compose it. We are glad you found us and glad you stayed. Liked the idea of sunrise at Beachy Head but sunset is just as nice and doesn’t require you to drag yourself out of bed at some unearthly hour. Thanks for the feedback and the 5/5... More

The da Vinci is ideally situated in Howard Square just off the sea front and just around the corner from the Devonshire Theatre, the Congress Theatre, the Winter Gardens, The Birley Centre and Eastbourne's new arts centre.
