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.

Loved this B&B no complaints. Sits directly across from the beach so superb views. Enjoyed breakfast and host was extremely hospitable will come again. We had room 8 on second floor, loved watching the seagulls below.

The Royal Hotel truly is a hidden gem. Located opposite the beach, views of the sun rising were stunning. Catering for vegetarians and eco-friendly wherever possible, it is in a perfect location for the local shops, seafront, amenities and attractions.From the time of arrival to departure, the owner (Eddie) made the entire stay welcoming and enjoyable. The hospitality went 'above... More

Cannot speak highly enough of our stay at The Royal. Fabulous accommodation, excellent hosts, a wonderful holiday for our dog, Jasper. Ground Floor Suite perfect in every way. Breakfasts pre and simple, did not miss the "full English". We shall return. Highly recommended.

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
