My husband and I only stayed one night, just wished it could have been longer, check was very straightforward and our room was lovely everything had been thought of in the room, it was the perfect location for us. We would certainly book again if in this vicinity

Just returned from a weeks holiday in Eastbourne staying at this hotel. The hotel is situated on the sea front in an ideal position. I was given room 15 for my stay which is situated on the rear of the second floor. The room was confortable with a double bed the only fault was the shower/toilet area which is very... More

We went to the bar attached to the hotel, we had coffee and snacks, staff took a long time to serve us. Lots of dirty glasses had been stacked up on the main bar, which was accumulating over time. The food looked well cooked but looked like food that had been ordered in your local cafe. Not a four star... More

Booked to stay here with my partner and son as from our searches it seemed a nice hotel, provided entertainment which we always look for as our son really enjoys it and it was in a good location for us. When we checked in carrying our bags and our young son, the receptionist told us about that evenings entertainment, where... More

We stayed at the hotel on the weekend of the Airshow. We managed to get a parking space which was very lucky. The car didn't move until we left! We had a room with a view on the 4th floor which was perfect to watch the airshow displays and much appreciated as the town was full to overflowing. Room service... More

We have stayed at the Cavendish four times and until this week, had always had a room with a sea view. We always felt that the rooms are very dated, (I remember those light fittings from thirty years ago) but they have extremely high standards of housekeeping and are spotless. This time, we booked at short notice in the busiest... More

We booked the Cavendish a few weeks ago and was really surprised to find a 4* hotel still available during Airborne. We stayed Thursday, arrived at 10am and was very pleased to get a parking space as well as being allowed to our room, seeing as check in isn't until 3pm. The staff were great and really helpful to accommodate... More

We have stayed in this hotel in the winter and rate it highly with on-site parking, comfortable beds and hard-working staff. However, this time it was an exceptionally busy weekend. We upgraded to a sea-view room (no air conditioning but an efficient fan). Actually we would have been better in our original rear facing room as the noise! from the... More

The hotel looks lovely, the bar area is inviting and the rooms very nice (although I believe there is only air con in the Executive rooms - we didn't have it and the room was quite stuffy). However, if you wish to get the "deal" for dinner you need to prebook this as it is not automatic for hotel guests... More
