My friends and I came here for my hen do, and we had a nice time. We spent some time in the spa and had a treatment each and then went for a meal. The spa isn't amazing. Facilities are limited and the staff are rude. Treatments weren't good, it seemed as if the staff were trained to a basic... More

Afternoon tea at the Grand Hotel is always a most enjoyable experience. The 'grand hall' is just that, 'grand'. And a perfect setting for a little self indulgence. Everything is perfectly presented and served. The hotel's real trump card is the staff. Perfectly attentive and yet never obsequious, splendid. Thanks to them all.

We had a lovely afternoon for a family birthday. Six adults and two children and baby. The staff are always very helpful. The menu included a separate selection of sandwiches for children which they both thoroughly enjoyed. The milkshakes looked wonderful. I wished I had had one myself!! The scones, cakes and sandwiches were beautiful and plenty. Overall a lovely... More

We decided to go to Eastbourne and the seven sisters on a Friday and we're glad to find a family room available at the Grand Hotel. The large, white building is like big open arms waiting to welcome you in. Very friendly and accommodating staff and a clean, spacious and comfortable room. Just steps away from the promenade and beach... More

We spent two nights in this grand hotel and it was perfect in every way.. The service was excellent. Staff were friendly and welcoming. It was a great experience and we would like to stay in the same hotel again when we go to Eastbourne.

Spent two nights in this giant of a 5 star. The staff are just perfect. The hotel is looking old in the corridors but this adds to the charm. She is old but as the name suggests she is just Grand! You will have an experience staying here an experience that if in London you could easily triple your bill.... More

Room 122 for one night. The room is at the back of the hotel on the first floor. High quality furniture and furnishings and a very comfortable bed. Nice new carpet and housekeeping is first class. Bathroom smallish but everything that you need. Public areas downstairs are always a delight - a lot of space and choice of seating style... More
