I took my mum their for a birthday treat and this is truly one to the loveliest places I have ever stayed. The building itself is very impressive, beautifully located at the far end of he beach away from too much traffic in front of a sweet parade. Once inside, expect classic furnishing and decorations that are very in keeping... More

We booked here as a special treat for our Sons 5th birthday as we were going to Drusillas which is nearby. On arrival my 7 Year old was overwhelmed by having the car door opened for her and our bags collected. On Check in they gave my son an unexpected birthday card and both children received a goody bag which... More

A friend from Yorkshire, last seen some 20 years ago, was holidaying in the south and we arranged to meet in Eastbourne. Wishing to exchange our news over a leisurely lunch, much thought was given as to the venue. "Lunch at the Grand" about five years ago left another friend and I rather disappointed with a bland offering that any... More

Instantly felt very welcomed by all of the staff who were very friendly and down to earth. We were seated in a room just in front of the main lobby and it was great to watch the world go by. Everything is very traditional which isn't really usually my thing and some might even say its a bit too traditional... More

I had a wonderful weekend overall, with a few minor issues which were on the most part sorted immediately. We ordered a paper and did not receive it, we had mixed service, some waitress could not do enough others barely recognised our presence. We had salt in our sugar bowl which was not pleasant in our coffee, the coffee was... More

Ahh ! It’s summer already ! And here we are, again, sunning ourselves at the sea-side .. and what a Grand time we’re having. Yes. It’s our (annual) report on living the ‘high life’ at Eastbourne’s ‘Number One’ establishment .. The Grand Hotel. Situated at the (up market) end of the town, just a short stroll from the South Downs,... More

The Grand Hotel Eastbourne is my favourite hotel, and I stayed there for four nights last week with family and friends. The rooms, the food, the staff - everything is wonderful, and the town Eastbourne is a lovely place, especially when you walk the streets around the hotel. Put on good shoes and walk back from Beachy Head, a wonderful... More

How welcoming to be greeted by friendly doorman in morning dress. From here on service, ambience and facilities were excellent. The hotel has held it quintessential Britishness and old time charm. High ceilings, beautiful chandeliers and big rooms. Check in was quick and efficient and our bags were swiftly taken to our rooms. We had an executive room but unfortunately... More

Having stayed at the Grand before and been impressed by both the service and its beautiful grandeur, we decided to hold our wedding there on the 12th of July. All our expectations were exceeded. The help, support and understanding by our co-ordinator Claire before the big day made everything seem easy. On the day, staff made sure everything ran to... More

My friend and I had a lovely last minute spa day. We were warned about renovations, but honestly we didn't notice them. The treatments were good, the facilities were relaxing and clean, the staff really friendly and accomodating, the food was good. We'll definitely go again.
