Arrived on a bank holiday to a very busy town right on the seafront. The Host Eddie was very welcoming and once we had found a parking space in a nearby road we were shown to a lovely seafront room with a bay window and seating area. When we said first thing we were going to do is get the... More

Very clean and comfortable hotel with attentive hosts. Eddie was always around to offer tips and the breakfast was definitely better than a fry up. Home made bread and strawberry jam was uber pleasant. Only small issue was exterior door access when we arrived.

How about waking up to the gentle sound of the sea, then enjoying a cup of tea while gazing at the waves? This is exactly what we experienced every morning. Location couldn't be any better, and just a couple of minutes walk to the pier and town centre restaurants and shops. We stayed on a special offer (book direct through... More

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

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
