As soon as we arrived we were made very welcome - all the staff were friendly and professional and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is very tastefully decorated to a high standard, room was large and very comfortable. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the hotel has a very homely feel. Good position too just a minute or two... More

Loved it. Might have more woodchip than a premier inn but oh so much more fun! Definitely need to try the evening meals but the best bit is the breakfasts. Where do hotels get the staff. Call centres would kill for them. So good humoured and friendly.

Entrance very inviting and cosy. Lovely bar area. The hotel has been beautifully decorated (in my opinion). My bedroom was very comfortable, warm and very clean. Although on 2nd floor there was a lift. Hotel location perfect - short walk to the promenade, near shops, Entertainment was excellent as it was a Turkey and Tinsel weekend. Dining room very well...

Excellent stay, very friendly and helpful staff, fantastic food and a lovely comfy room, not the usual single box room that coach drivers get, entertainment on for all 4 nights and well stocked bar (not that I can drink as a driver) I would happily return with my family

Visited this hotel again from the 9th of November for five days. Both Sue and Liam ( and other members of staff, especially Jon ) remembered us and we were allocated a room on the top floor. This was refurbished and the bathroom totally updated. Both very tastefully carried out. As ever, the food and the quality of it was... More

Just off the promenade at Eastbourne's western end, the hotel is also convenient for shops, theatres, the tennis at Devonshire Park and the band stand. The staff are very friendly and courteous. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Live entertainment on most evenings. All rooms are to a high standard of decoration and cleanliness.

As good on the inside, as it looks on the outside. Nice food, especially the choice of breakfast.: You can eat as healthy,or unhealthy as you like &not rushed. Restaurant efficiency&service the best in town(the kitchen is only a few metres away), SO food arrives on HOT plates - a tradition that seems out of favour in most places, these... More
