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.

On booking the grand hotel for my 30th birthday special treat of afternoon tea with friends and family, I expected something grand on arrival especially after paying £294 for 12 of us. What I didn't expect was the complete opposite. We were taken in to a side room off the main lobby area to a dark and dingy corner which... More

A wonderful overnight stay at a beautiful, elegant hotel that takes you back to the days of opulence and style. We were greeted by Concierge service who parked our car and delivered our bags to our 3 Executive sea-view rooms whilst we checked in. The staff had remembered that it was 'grandma's' 80th birthday and had a birthday card for... More

I only stayed for one night at this hotel in a junior seaview suite. The room was very spacious and very luxurious with a double sink, four poster bed, Molton Brown toiletries, a balcony with table and two chairs. Breakfast was very nice, the hotel customer care of all staff was excellent. I have no complaints about this hotel.

My husband and I visited the Grand for a last minute getaway on a July weekend. We booked in for a 'spa break' which included bed, breakfast, a 25 minute treatment and use of spa facilities. We were able to conveniently use the spa area before check in time and make use of all facilities. Although the facilities for the... More

The hotel is situated slightly away from the main town but within easy walking distance along the sea front. We stayed here for our anniversary and had a fantastic weekend. Despite the car park being small, it is managed with military precision and we were accommodated with no issue. All staff made sure we received a very warm welcome and... More

Myself, wife and friend went to The Grand on Sunday for morning tea and coffee. What a fabulous experience and what a fabulous hotel. This is the best hotel I have visited for a long long time. Not just country house atmosphere - country mansion atmosphere. I cannot say more. Just try it. The total bill for the three of... More
