Stayed here for 4 nights, the hotel staff were very friendly, the hotel food was lovely, the beds and cleanliness were tip top. I left my charger in the room when I vacated the room, I phoned the hotel when I arrived home, they sent it to me immediately, now that's service for you!

Facilities were excellent and meals great value for money. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Located a very short walk from the sea front and an easy drive to Beachy Head and Birling Gap (Seven Sisters).

Cute, personal and friendly little hotel. Great staff who couldn't do enough for us. We were upgraded as it was my mums birthday so that was a lovely gesture to make our stay even nicer. Fab location too as in walking distance from the beach and town and only a short drive away from the marina and Beachy Head. The... More

We have stayed in Eastbourne many times mainly for conferences and this is the best Hotel by far. Stayed as a group and the staff were excellent and always cheerful, on checking in they suggested moving one our party to a different room so they didn't have to cope with too many stairs. Food both at breakfast and Dinner was... More

We can not recommend this hotel enough. Just spent two nights here along with an elderly relative. The staff were so kind friendly and helpful and were very efficient. The hotel is one of the cleanest and nicely decorated we have stayed in. The breakfast is superb with so much choice, the evening meals are also extremely good with a... More

We stayed here as a surprise visit for a family member. The staff were very welcoming, the hotel was well appointed with a bar and several seating areas, each with their own large screen TV. The single beds are standard single size so, if like me, you are over 6 foot tall they do feel a little small. However, the... More

My first stay here as part of a coach party organised by the League of Friends from QA Hospital Portsmouth. Comfortable room, staff very friendly, good food, extensive menu, central location, handy for the theatres and tennis. The public rooms, a lounge bar area and tv lounge are nicely decorated, I'd return without hesitation.

Our third stay here for a short Theatre Break and remains excellent and extremely friendly hotel. Just 2 minutes from Theatres with a small comfortable bar open until 12 . Plenty of places in vicinity to eat as well as good restaurant in hotel itself
