My wife and I agree on these topics: The staff were great, especially Jon, who was simply outstanding. The breakfast was as healthy or unhealthy as you could wish for - I took the "English Breakfast" option, which was excellent. The hotel is very clean and tidy, the standard of presentation is very high. The bed was fine. The location... More

This is our third time staying at the New Wilmington and once again, they did not disappoint us. We had a lovely room at the front of the hotel. The breakfast is substantial and they make great latte coffees. The staff are outstanding...very helpful and pleasant. We hope to be back next year!

Stayed over the Airshow weeekend & the hotel still had a calm , unhurried and relaxed atmosphere. Would rank as one of my favourite hotels in Eastbourne. Good food, friendly staff, clean, well presented rooms, very close to seafront. Sensible prices in the bar

This was the first time we had visited the New Wilmington but felt very comfortable as though we had been there before and will most likely be staying there in the future. Very nice room with full range of facilities,great breakfast,good location and generally very good value for the time of year. Bit of a fight for the lift at... More

Mum and Dad have been coming to the New Wilmington each summer for over 20 years so it was with some trepidation that my sister and I brought Mum on her own after dads death earlier this year. We need not have worried - the staff remembered her and were friendly and welcoming only mentioning dad's absence privately to me.... More

Food very good and plenty choice, all seemed to be cooked on the premises, room very nicely decorated, bathroom lovely and all very clean, staff lovely. Not on the seafront but the overall ambience made up for this, very convenient for theatres and other amenities Would go again.

Really cannot fault this hotel. Staff are attentive but not "in your face". Food is as good as any top class restaurant. Entertainment is on a par with most hotels, not brilliant but perfectly adequate for a nice laid back feel which is what you want on holiday. Location could not be better, close to bandstand and all major attractions.

I booked this hotel with close family as my brother was visiting from Australia. The hotel is very close to the seafront and town centre. The staff were friendly and provided a good level of customer service, when we asked for milk for my grandchildren later in the evening it was provided promptly and courteously. Although it is not a... More

My mum, sister and I visited this hotel again, four years after our last stay. It was fantastic - the food was excellent, the room was perfect for the three of us and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the entertainment in the evenings too. A big thank you from us all.
