It is almost like staying on the London eye, I pre booked my hotel room about a week before thinking I may get a nice room but instead...once the receptionists saw how young my partner and I are (18 & 21) , I think they realised they should chuck us out the way on the 4th floor, we were hidden...

It is almost like a habit. Each year I return to Eastbourne to cover the tennis and every time I hope that my regular room will have been decorated. It hadn't been and it hadn't been properly cleaned. On the windowsill was a cup full of fag ends, stains from last year were still there and the paint was peeling.... More

I recently stayed at The Mansion Lions Hotel in Eastbourne and found it to be very disappointing. During the five days I was there there were three separate incidents where elderly people fell on the stairs due to rucked carpets. All three were taken to hospital but the staff seemed totally disinterested in what was obviously a serious safety issue.... More

Badly in need of some TLC and our waiter made Manuel in Faulty Towers look efficient, aside from that I had a single room on the 3rd floor on the side that was large and roomy, spotlessly clean and with a very comfy bed. One window was painted shut but the other was ok though the outside glass had way... More

Stayed here as was attending a party in the hotel's ballroom. Booked 3 rooms and at time of booking asked for the single room to be on the same floor as one of the doubles. When checked in had 3 rooms on different floors but they changed the single so it was next to one of the doubles. The other... More

Stayed at the Mansion Lions hotel with G B Tours for 4 nights ending 13/06/14. Very busy hotel with 3 other coach parties also there. We were fortunate to be given a sea view room which had great views and although the room was kept clean and tidy and was quite comfortable it was in need of redecoration. The shower... More

First impressions are good with efficient, friendly staff but the room, whilst comfortable, was in need of re-decoration and some TLC - for instance repair of a broken window whilst repainting of the common parts is needed.The full English breakfast was very tasty and a varied choice was available. The beds were comfortable and we had a sea view.

I never write reviews on tripadvisor. And I wasn't planning to. After arriving yesterday afternoon, I was happy to ignore the peeling wallpaper in our room and the exposed pipes - after all, we did have a lovely view of the pier and sea. I was also prepared to ignore the biscuit crumbs on the floor, the mattress that felt... More
