Service, bar, room, breakfast, grand hall for afternoon tea - it's all enjoyed in a beautiful setting. The Grand makes the most of its heritage with reminders of its 100+ year history dotted around the halls and corridors. For a hotel that prides itself on tradition, it's got a nice, friendly atmosphere too. The hotel's well located; a 15 minute... More

Overnight stay with our 6 year old son who was spoiled rotten, Service is fantastic and unusually for the UK was child focused. My son thought the sports bag and hat were great as was the milk and cookies at bedtime. From the adult perspective the hotel managed to feel relaxed and yet still offer impeccable service and whilst it... More

We have just celebrated our first anniversary at the Grand Hotel in Eastbourne, having had our wonderful wedding reception there a year ago. Again, we were very well looked after, met with friendly and professional staff at all times, and no request was too much trouble. We had a super room with fantastic sea view. We were just generally made... More

We stayed overnight at the Grand, following a day long business conference. The room had been booked for us, so we did not really know what to expect other than the fact that the room would be a double. The room did not disappoint, it was very large (as was the bathroom) and very well appointed. The bed was large... More

This was my first visit to The Grand since losing my wife and my boxer dog and I was content to settle for a deluxe rear facing double room for single occupancy. The deal was exceptional and the visit was truly therapeutic. If olde worlde charm and exceptional service are your bag, you won't be disappointed. I notice that there... More

We stayed at The Grand for a four night break towards the end of March. We have two young children and all the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. The children were always made to feel very welcome.. Special thanks to Sophie and Emily on reception who went to a great deal of... More
