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

Saw the offer online so booked for the Sat night after the Aegon Ladies Tennis Finals. Reception gave us a parking permit and we parked very close to the hotel entrance. Short walk to the seafront and breakfast in a nice local cafe, The Plantation, sitting outside in the sun. Very nice. Room 1 nearest to reception is an Economy... More

We were visiting Eastbourne for the weekend to meet with friends & wanted a clean, value for money hotel that was conveniently situated - the New Wilmington ticked all the boxes. We travelled to Eastbourne by train & this hotel is only about a 10 minute walk from the station. It is also only a short walk to the seafront... More

With my wife we had a four night stay in an economy twin room. The room was larger than expected and very nicely presented. The bathroom was excellent. Our deal was a bed and breakfast however the food and service was so good we took dinner on all but one evening. There was great entertainment during our stay which we... More

This was our third stay and the previously high standards have been maintained. Room was very comfortable and clean (daily maid service). Food is excellent with a varied menu. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them. This is always our first choice for a stay in Eastbourne.

I just stayed overnight but I enjoyed the peace and quite other larger hotels often don't afford you. The staff were very friendly, welcoming & helpful and the room was clean. The breakfast room was modern, light & airy and had everything you could want. I can recommend the cooked breakfast! I heard some people re-booking as I past reception... More

A little bit back from the sea front, but comfortable and very, very clean. The pillows were a little soft for me, but that is of course a personal preference. We had one of the best hotel breakfasts I remember. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.
