Went to the Grand Hotel spa, extremely nice staff but the spa was very tired looking I was so disappointed when shown to the indoor pool area only about 6 sun loungers and 6 chairs to "relax" in no back ground music no ambiance, the ceiling tiles were dirty and one in the middle where we were sitting had a...

Stayed for one Sept night in a side sea view room on DB and B terms. The hotel is well situated on the sea front with easy parking. Reception staff are helpful and public areas impressive, in a faded English manner. Our room was of good size but hot, despite all the windows being wide open on our arrival. Outside... More

What can I say? This is probably the best hotel I have ever stayed at. My husband and I spent three lovely nights at this Hotel last week. Upon arrival we were greeted by the concierge who parked our car for us in the Hotel car park. All the staff from the concierge, reception staff and housekeeping staff were professional,... More

We had a superb stay at this wonderful place. It is a bit of a time warp and they really need aircon in all rooms bur a modern equivalent would have none of this charm. Excellent staff, great facilities a blast from the past and a real treat.

Had a night here with my wife as a birthday treat. We were (initially) put in room 114 which was ok - however - out the window was a view of a courtyard that had a net to stop things dropping into the courtyard. In this net were the decaying bodies of two dead birds!!! Not very "5 star". In... More

Firstly I must just say that the best thing about this hotel is definitely the staff who work hard and welcome you gloriously, but 5* it isn't! Take a good look at the rooms online as the photos are fair- pink velvet armchairs and chinz curtains and bedcovers. This hotel needs a lot of money spent on it to truly... More

Go back in time, with decor and where service is top of their agenda and you feel like 'one of the family' as soon as you walk in, then The Grand at Eastbourne is your place!! We went for the air show and even if the hotel was rather busy, the impeccable service, food quality and attention to detail did... More

This is a difficult one as The Grand has so much going for it. The history of the building and it's music and radio past are exceptional. However there were moments where I felt I was in a mausoleum. Everything is subdued and badly lit, although there is information about the history in sections of the hotel, it doesn't draw... More
