This is old quintessential English hotel almost stopped in its tracks by time. The hotel is like how a 5 star hotel would have been 75 years ago with all the service and charm. Stepping back in time as you approach the hotel is the first impression. We had a magnificent 2 bedroom suite overlooking the pool and sea. Whilst... More

Awful! We stayed 24th August - 27th August 2015. We paid £520 a night for a master suite. When we arrived we were informed that we were not in the pre booked master suite and had been moved to a different suite as there had been a water leak. Our replacement room was not the same though as our children... More

I went with 3 friends for a Spa Day at this hotel and it was a wonderful experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times throughout the day. We had a swim in the pool and sat in the Jacuzzi. Two of us had the Turkish salt scrub which was very relaxing. Lunch was freshly made sandwiches... More

5 star luxury and service. Only one thing lets it down and that is a lack of air-conditioning in the restaurants. It makes it hot and uncomfortable to eat there. Otherwise a great experience and Afternoon Tea must be experienced.

We like The Grand. Been there 3 times and fully expected to continue. It is good and worth the prices. We, in our retirement have no hesitation in homing in on it if we need or want to stay in the area. And that area is well worth it. The Sussex Countryside is stunning and the area smothered with wonderful... More

My husband and I booked a sea view room for the weekend of Eastbourne air show. We were amazed to find we had been upgraded to a palatial, two bedroom suite!! The service is spot on, not in your face but there when needed.We ate in both the Mirabelle and Garden restaurants. Could not fault either, delicious food and friendly... More

From housekeeping to management the 2 day package was fantastic, the room was large clean and bright with a lovely side view, my girlfriend loved the champagne, chocolates and the molten brown gift all presented discretely in the room when we were out eating. The mirabelle restuarant was first class, we used the health facilities and the pools are nicely... More

This imposing hotel on Eastbourne sea front has excellent levels of service and the Mirabelle restaurant is fabulous (the highlight of any stay and worth going to even if you are not staying). The room we stayed in was very clean and well decorated but for a 5 star hotel is let down by no air conditioning, difficult to access... More

I stayed here with several friends for one night and we ate at the Mirabelle restaurant in the evening. The rooms were spacious and had a Nespresso machine which I particularly enjoyed. The bed was also incredibly comfy - we had been looking forward to this as we have previously stayed at another Elite hotel. 2 of the 3 rooms... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times for long weekends. We stayed in May this year and upgraded to a suite. It was huge. Would def recommend paying a bit extra for a suite. We had a sea view which was great.
