My life partner and I spent a few days here following our civil ceremony. Absolute bliss! We could bring our dogs, this is an adults-only small hotel so no noisy children running about and our rooms were perfect. We have previously stayed at other establishments in Eastbourne and this is the best by far. Extremely comfortable, clean, friendly to our... More

If you are travelling with a dog I would certainly recommend this hotel, bowl of water in room when we arrived for him, treats offered... More

Despite having a 'mad' dog with me I was made to feel at ease ! Very helpful & friendly. Loved my room - was kindly put in double room with more space for dogs despite only booking a single room. The room was immaculate & contemporary with a wonderful sea & pier view. Will definitely recommend this hotel & hope... More

We stayed at the Royal as my daughter was running the Eastbourne half Marathon. The Royal really fitted the bill. I booked the 2 bedroom suite on the ground floor, with views overlooking the sea and Eastbourne Pier. The hotel is scrupulously clean, well cared for and the Owner, is very pleasant and helpful. The rooms are lovely, with fresh... More

We chose this hotel because we wanted to take the dog with us on an overnight stay. The owner is exceptionally friendly and the rooms we had were recently decorated and were very clean. Nothing seemed too much bother. Although you do not get a cooked breakfast the spread you have to choose from is healthy and wholesome and was... More

My wife and I were looking for a Dog Friendly hotel in Eastbourne and found the Royal through the Eastbourne Travel Advisory Website. We are always slightly concerned about Dog Friendly hotels because some of then use the "we take dogs" as an excuse for less than acceptable conditions. Not The Royal !!!!!!!!!! This gorgeous, niche, boutique hotel is superb.... More

Stayed at the Royal in Eastbourne so we could do some family stuff for my wife's aunt. We've tried a range of places over the years, often wanting to bring our dog with us but suffering from the British obsession with not having dogs in hotels. No such problem with the Royal - marvellous place. Our dog Tika was made... More
