My husband and I have travelled extensively round the world but it is rare to find ALL hotel staff of the same high standard, who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived.Our rooms were spacious, light and clean and lacked for nothing[we even were presented with a complimentary carafe of sherry and a bowl of fruit] The staff...

Having stayed at The Grand during a busy weekend earlier in the year we knew we could confidently anticipate close but unobtrusive attention, grand spaces and comfort. The Christmas decorations were lovely. It was all lovely. We recommend Afternoon Tea in the Grand Hall. The hotel was anything but full yet everything was done with care and attention to detail....

We have stayed here twice during the last six months and found the experience most pleasant. The rooms are comfortable in an old fashioned sort of way, very spacious and contain most of the things that one needs. In the public areas the service can be a little slow but it is worth waiting for; the only snag is that... More

This is a superb hotel, with excellent service. The lounge is a haven of tranquillity, where people can talk quietly and read in a civilised way. Unfortunately on a recent visit this was marred by a selfish, insensitive family who encouraged their small child to prod at some electronic device that repeatedly played one of those tunes designed to capture...

Went looking forward to a wonderful festive cream tea :reality long wait from getting tea drinks on the arrival of gluten free sandwiches I was very disappointed to find 4 open pieces of bread with cheese spread and egg mayonnaise and salad leave all very in- appetising in presentation. My husbands on the other hand looked okay as all four... More

Really impressed on arrival with the small blackboard reserving me a parking space, and even more when the same happened when I returned to the hotel after a day touring. That, in fact, was typical of the level of service at this hotel - couldn't be faulted. Drink prices on the dear side, though. Had meal in the Mirabelle restaurant... More

We stayed at the Grand in July. The public rooms are lovely - elegant and traditional. Our double room was at the rear of the hotel (we had booked late and this did not worry us). However, the room itself was in a poor state of decoration, with peeling paintwork and wallpaper parting at the joins. The floor was on... More

Ours was a nostalgic visit; we had our wedding reception at the Grand Hotel in October 1988. Now one of our friends lives in Eastbourne, we wanted to visit him so we chose to stay at the Grand. Nothing much has changed in 26 years. The service is still impeccable, from the doormen who helped us when we arrived in... More
