Just returned again from here after a 2 night stay, and as before this hotel in my opinion is excellent. Although our room facing the road and seafront was a little noisy at times with the traffic, the Cavendish for us is spotlessly clean, relaxing, nice rooms,excellent staff and the food nothing but superb, especially the buffet breakfast!

As a long time resident of Eastbourne I often fancied staying in the Cavendish. The booking was done direct through the hotels website, and even despite this it was still a bit mucked up... Anyway once sorted the sea view room was fine, nice bed and with a decent bathroom. Then down to the American Bar, great! GOOD selection of... More

Glad I didn't book one of the basic rooms, I looked inside one, not only did it not have a view, it was so small, just about fitted the double bed in it. Our room was ok. Sea view from the side on the Devonshire Road. The external on... More

I was most impressed with the facilities and the staff. There was a great ambience to the whole place with original Art Deco features not to mention an excellent room and breakfast. The location is excellent for access to popular attractions. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

We were recommended to stay at the Cavendish by friends and we were really pleased we did. The staff were friendly, the situation was great and the bedroom was large. Breakfast was included which was substantial. We would stay again.

Our room was booked on a third party web site so we got a great deal. Sea facing with excellent views. To top it off the band stand just off opposite had a Take That tribute night. So a few glasses of wine on the balcony made a good end to a good night. This is a four star hotel... More

Great rooms (2) each with balcony overlooking the Bandstand - fireworks literaly a few metres from the room - scary but amazing. The staff were very attentive and food pretty good especially by hotel standards. Only minus is that rooms, and indeed whole hotel, is very warm. You don't expect to have to use aircon in May in UK!
