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

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

We were invited to join friends in the Garden Restaurant for dinner last week while they were staying in the Grand. They liked the Hotel generally but It took a long time for us to be served. By the time all the items ordered had arrived and been dished up, the food was cold. The vegetables were almost unacceptable, unexciting,... More

My husband & I recently visited for our anniversary and felt very spoilt throughout the whole of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and we... More

We stayed at the Grand for one weekend at the end of March 2014. It was a very good experience. Especially staying in a hotel with almost 140 years of history was amazing. The staff were polite, welcoming very helpful. We stayed in a deluxe room, which was OK in size for two people but you may find it small... More
