We recently arrived home after a 6 week trip to London Copenhagen and a TA cruise and while in England stayed at the Royal Hotel in Eastbourne 31th August to the 2nd September for 3 nights staying in the Suite room. This is our second stay there and again it was brilliant to say the least. The staff were always... More

Look no further for a hotel in Eastbourne. Extremely clean and well presented. Really dog friendly and fabulous breakfast. Booking was easy and non fussy. The owner gave us a lovely warm welcome, including our dog. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner. Our room was spacious and had everything in it we needed. There was also a dogs... More

I booked the Royal at the last minute, when looking for dog-friendly accommodation, and felt like I stumbled upon a little gem. The hotel is conveniently located right on the seafront and the hotel's owners were lovely. My room was small but perfectly formed! Nice shower room, comfy bed and everything I needed. It was wonderful to find a hotel... More

I ask this question because after trying the Royal continental breakfast i do not think you will miss your cooked breakfast too much if at all. On my first visit to the Royal i did not know what to expect but I really was surprised by the choice. Freshly squeezed fruit juice cereal home baked bread and home made jams... More

What a nice place, well kept and very clean. If we go to Eastbourne again, we would stay here if they had availability. Our room was fairly small but its just somewhere to sleep and and clean up so for that its just right. The room was clean and tidy, plus it had a nice big shower cubicle. The only... More

We have just been back to Royal Hotel again. To Eddy and Lynda, NOTHING is too much trouble, they are excellent hosts. Lynda's home made bread and home made jams are delicious, such lovely continental breakfasts. Bedrooms are spotlessly clean and lovely toiletries . If anyone is going to Eastbourne, head straight to Eddy and Lynda's.

We were a bit apprehensive about staying here as we are neither vegetarians or dog lovers particularly - we stayed in the suite downstairs with two fabulous bay windows overlooking the sea, a lounge with dining area and a well fitted bathroom with a great shower over the bath. Not only were we unaware of the presence of 4 dogs... More

We have just got back from a 2 night stay at the Hotel. Very impressed with room (we did upgrade to a sea view, but was worth it), just had to cross the road to get to beach. Service was excellent and couldn't fault the food. This was a Groupon deal but we still got great service.

My husband and I love the Royal, we have just got back from another great weekend. We have the same room each time as the views are wonderful and the room is perfect. Eddy is a brilliant host, always offers to help with the luggage and always brings us a nice pot of tea to the room when we arrive.... More

After the last visit at the Royal, the wonderful hospitality and the welcome Eddy and Lynn gave to us. We decided to rebook again for a week, with same room( top floor) as last time. Again I could not fault Eddy and Lynn, made us most welcome and were surprised with the renovations made to the hotel.The place was spotless... More
