We stayed for a weekend. The staff was quite friendly And they had a good and filling breakfast. However, our room was quite dated. The bed was very uncomfortable and really creaky. The mattress was dated and I woke up with a bad back. The floor in our room was uneven and creaky. The ventilation in the bathroom made terrible... More

We stayed for just the one night but the service we received, both before and during our stay was exemplary. We had my disabled sister with us and the hotel made sure she had a walk in shower and could access the lift before we came. Reception was very helpful at all times and the breakfast service spot on.

We were not staying at this hotel but ate excellent breakfast here every morning at very reasonable price.. On making payment at counter however, I was asked if I wanted a receipt by elderly gent with limited customer service skills and then he was clearly unhappy that I was paying a bill of £11,95 with 2 x 10 notes ....

I was a little concerned having read a number of Tripadvisor reviews of this Hotel, but had little choice in booking it as there were few vacancies in Eastbourne due to the Airshow. That being said, we were very happy with the choice in the end, the receptionist was very helpful and courteous, the room (a sea view room) was... More

Booked a double room with sea view and wasn't disappointed. Stayed night of 17th Aug 2014 which was the last day of Eastbourne Airborne show, arrived very early at 10AM and hotel obviously very busy checking other guests out. Reception staff very helpful and accommodating, furnished us with a parking permit for just £1 so we could rest easy on... More

My sister and I have a holiday together every year and this year decided on Eastbourne. I picked this hotel at random from a booking website and we were not disappointed. We had booked a sea view room and were very pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to a really spacious, well-appointed room with two large windows giving a... More

I was put in a room not dissimilar to a prison cell (not that I have knowledge of this !). A tiny window high up on the wall, not reachable. A tiny bed which the bathroom door banged into. Walls so thin you could hear people opening and closing drawers and everything else you can imagine. Very noisy!!! The bed... More

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights in June. On the positive side the hotel is in a great location, right by the seafront, and well placed for a pleasant stroll in to the town or to the tennis at Devonshire Park. The Wi-Fi also works very well I found. On the negative the single room I... More
