    Mummy and Daddy use to come here years ago, but we were not allowed so I brought my children here for an overnighter whilst on a tour of Southern England.

    Having decided to undertake some limited touring of the Sussex coast with a few places in mind we decided to book an hotel in Eastbourne as neither my partner or I had been to the town before. We secured a master suite for the Saturday night. Our first impressions were not good as the doormen were overwhelmed with numbers of... More

    After a bad start, we paid for standard double, and we given a room that looked like your old nans bedroom ! It was awful !! Rooms are furnished in old style furniture so if you like modern this isn't for you. I complained to reception who sent up a porter who took me to see alternative room. This was... More

    Stayed at this hotel with b and b for one night for my daughter's birthday. Definitely 5 star hotel with everything done to a high standard. We enjoyed the SPA and fitness facilities including the lovely secluded heated outdoor pool. Lovely room and good breakfast with a massive choice. Well recommended and good value.

    The Grand Eastbourne is a lovely hotel and the common areas are quite grand and very well appointed. The staff are also very pleasant and accommodating. When you walk into the hotel you feel like you are getting the "5 star" treatment. That feeling quickly subsided when we entered our room. I felt like we walked into a motel room... More

    We had a wonderful lunch party in one of the private dining rooms, for my mother's birthday. Excellent food, perfect service which was very efficient and friendly yet discrete (as requested, as we wanted the occasion to be relaxed and informal). Could not fault anything and would highly recommend.

    We stayed for one night last week and wished it could have been longer! What a super hotel so comfortable and the staff are so friendly. We had a lovely room which was upgraded,so we had a 'side sea view'. It was really nice to wake up and enjoy the view from our room whilst enjoying a cup of coffee... More

    Visited July 2015, unfortunately the weather was not very nice for a walk along the beach so we spent quite a few hours at the hotel. The building is impressive and well maintained. Used the facilities, Jacuzzi and pool- not too busy so we enjoyed it a lot. Drinks and soft snacks at the bar-all good. The restaurant exceptional- worth... More

    We stayed for two nights. I have seen people describe the Grand as old-fashioned; it is not. It was built 150 years ago and so has a certain style. Modern decoration would look wrong. Maybe the comfortable lounge is reaching the point where it needs redecoration, but the service is excellent, but unobtrusive. I ordered prawn sandwiches for lunch. They... More
