From the outside of the Eastbourne Riviera Hotel, it looks like a pleasant place to stay. It's located right on the seafront, within a 10 minute walk to the town centre, and looks generally well maintained. Looks can be deceiving. Don't let the outside fool you, because the inside is a totally different kettle of fish. The room I stayed... More

My wife and I have just returned from an enjoyable weekend staying at the Eastbourne Riviera hotel. On arrival we were warmly welcomed and despite the limited parking managed to park in front of hotel. The hotel can sell you a parking permit for £1 which entitles you to leave car till 11am the following day which is great (if... More

Reception/bar/restaurant was bright and modern. Breakfast was really good, cooked fresh to order. My 4 criticisms, 1. our room was too small. We did not pay... More

Stayed here with my family (2 adults and 2 seven year olds) as a birthday celebration. Whilst the rooms are dated, they're clean and comfortable. The service is friendly and welcoming and the food is freshly cooked and very generous. I would stay here again

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
