I've just had a two week stay at the Mansion Lions. I over heard some people complaining about the state of their rooms, but ours was fine, until it rained. We had water coming through the ceiling. I headed to reception, dodging the four story water fall in the stairway. The poor receptionist was doing all he could, but you... More

After a 3 hour drive when we came to check in, we were told that they didn't have a room for us but that they had arranged for us to stay at their sister hotel next... More

On first entering the hotel it appears very nice and the receptionist was very helpfull. Then, on the way to our rooms on the 3rd floor we noticed that the corridoor smelt a bit damp. We were there for 3 nights during which time that damp smell did not improve. The bed was not that comfortable & the bathroom extractor... More

... Those are just some of the words that you wouldn't use to describe the Mansion Lions Hotel. Let's break it down. 3* Hotel - I am utterly stunned that this is listed as a 3* hotel. It makes me question whether the owners of this hotel actually have the accreditation or whether they're falsely advertising an outdated one. Quite... More

First room I had was not very clean around windows and windows wouldn't shut. along with a piece of red insulation tape over a light switch I asked to... More

Brilliant stay - lovely room (made up daily) - fantastic seafront view - food excellent - staff wonderful, friendly and could not be more helpful - good entertainment - and we found Eastbourne a lovely place to visit. Would definitely go again.

The bathroom was disgusting please see pictures - with mould and water stains at the base of the bath, the toilet had chucks missing out of the toilet seat - an infection control risk! The bathroom cabinet only had 1 mirror and the shower curtain did... More

Travelled on a bowls tour with over 100 people for a 4 night stay. Single room allocated had a upvc window with a bent strut that meant the closed it got to closing was a 3" gap! Second room given (319) was ok. Lots of minor things wrong all the time, however. Complimentary biscuits were a month out of date.... More
