... 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me question whether the owners of this hotel actually have the accreditation or whether they're falsely advertising an outdated one.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

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.

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 Complimentary biscuits were a month out of date....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

On first arrival hotel seemed nice but very outdated with Christmas decorations in places still left up above the main door. The women on the reception couldn't be bothered to get off her backside and sat at the desk which is about 2ft away from the main reception desk. Went up to the room on 4th floor that we had...
