We highly recommend this little hotel with personal attention and perfect location on the beach at Eastbourne. The staff are friendly, kind, helpful, will give good ideas for restaurants in the area. We are also loving the breakfast, different from all the others, high quality and no grease. Good LaVazza coffee and herbal teas. >We will be coning back.

Stayed at The Royal hotel. Eddie the owner is attentive, friendly and helpful. Room 2 had a perfect sea-view. The traffic did not bother us at all as we enjoyed the sight and sounds of the shimmering sea.

Eddie always makes us tea an coffee which is brought to our room. Nothing is too much trouble. Eddie has a vast knowledge... More

Exceptionally clean and well maintained rooms, outstanding vegetarian breakfast which for a full-English breakfast lover like me was quite an accomplishment. No kids so no noise. Sea front rooms really have a breathtaking view.

The friendly and helpful hands on owner made the Royal Hotel a great place to stay this past weekend. My top floor room had a view along the coast and onto the pier and the beach. I fell asleep to the sound of the sea on the beach and woke up to it. Its in a good location so walking... More

Thrilled with my room upon arrival with the stunning views. The owner, staff and not forgetting Boris the dog gave us a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. For cleanliness i would give top marks, just spotless. Lovely place a fabulous people.

Breakfast was great, with a full continental breakfast choice. Only a short walk to the shops and restaurants and had a great view from the room. Thank you Elliott, you run a beautiful hotel and...

I visit Eastbourne every year, either on my own or with various family members, on this occasion I brought my elderly mother...purpose of my visit is the same every time, to visit an old school friend! I have overlooked this hotel on many occasions, due to its previously tatty exterior, and only upon trying to get a room booked for... More

The Royal is a small privately run hotel and Eddie, the owner proprietor, goes out of his way to make his guests welcome. Our room was clean, if a little cosy, with a lovely sea view and our stay was comfortable and relaxing. The continental breakfast is very good, with a wide range of cereals, breads, fruit, yogurts and home-made... More

Wanted to get out of London for the weekend. Eastbourne is fairly big town, with a small village feel. Hotel fitted in perfectly, owner is engaging and friendly. The hotel is neat and rooms immaculate. I had the top floor, single room. Stunning view.
