Really welcoming. Very friendly team on reception. Left early so did not sample breakfast. Hotel was very clean and good value - would certainly stay again. The staff were great and gave us and our Dog Scumpy Jack a very warm welcome. Nice quiet area and lovely restaurants near by. Cannot go wrong with this hotel. Good value and location.... More

We were greeted by Jean-Phillipe (Jon). We were shown to room 109 and our bags taken for us. The room was excellent, the food was first class as was the service and dinning area. Every member of staff cared about every guest. We once spent a week in a 5 star hotel just along the front. It never came up... More

My partner and I booked this hotel at the last minute but I am pleased to say that we choose well. The room was a tad old fashioned but it had an ample amount of space which was good. The staff were really friendly and always had a smile on their faces. The waiter at breakfast was very attentive and... More

friendly smiley faces welcome us every time - and we have become as much friends as guests - though we are always treated with the respect expected as a paying guest! Great location just off the promenade, lovely traditional comfortable rooms, great food and friendly helpful staff...always feels like a home from home and we won't stay anywhere else when... More

My wife & I booked a 2 day mid week stay in April 2015. The reservation was made by phone. No deposit was asked for; only a credit card to guarantee the reservation. Subsequent to making the reservation, we had a change of plans. We decided to stay for only one night. At check in, we informed the desk clerk... More

We were a group of 4 ladies who like to enjoy weekends away once or twice a year. We booked The New Wilmington Hotel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. Mostly we had an excellent weekend at a wonderful hotel. Our rooms were quite different - one very small with a walk in shower in the bathroom, and the... More

I stayed here with my daughter for 2 nights as we were attending an event at the Wintergarden (2 minute walk away). We checked in late Friday night and were warmly welcomed by Mark who was on duty. Lovely hotel spotlessly clean and nicely decorated lobby and bar area. Our room was a twin room that was quite old fashioned... More

Stayed here for a Saturday night whilst we watched a comedian at the Congress theatre. Checked in early as room already for us. This place is a hidden gem- all staff were friendly and helpful. Twin room was basic but had all we needed, bed was very soft but surprisingly comfortable- slept Well. Breakfast is delightful- you get shown your... More

We stayed for 3 nights during the Eastbourne ladies tennis tourney. It is easy to find in town-1 block from the seafront--many places to eat or have coffee within 1 block. Free parking on the street-we had difficult time finding a place since the tennis is only 2 blocks away. Liam seems to run things around the hotel-he is funny... More
