I stayed over the weekend and this was my first visit to the Cavendish. I had got a good deal on a single room so my expectations were not too high. On arrival the room was ready - early - the staff were excellent. The room was spotlessly clean, the windows opened, and there was a trouser press and room... More

We had a sea view room and was worth every penny. Front on house staff were friendly and informative. Breakfast was lovely. A clean fresh hotel, considering its size shows good management. Well worth a stay. Only shame is our trip was one night long.

Great front desk staff very helpful. Entertainment very good. Restaurant - a lot of foreign staff that don't speak much English meant some mistakes at mealtimes. I was forced to keep the same table all week which wasn't in a good spot. And I was refused entry one day for wearing shorts.. A shame when I was enjoying a relaxing... More

This was the fifth time that I have been at the Cavendish this year. The staff there are really friendly and helpful and make feel at home. The staff that I have seen before knows exactly what I want usually BEFORE I have asked for it. The rooms are nice, clean, and spacious with high ceilings. The breakfasts are really... More

As said in previous reports this is an old Hotel, but it lends its self to having large rooms and big open stairways and corridors. Easy to find, good parking, we arrived early, but were offered our room straight away as it was ready. Top marks to Ellen the Receptionist, who offered us a choice of rooms, and was most... More

The hotel is a great space and the reception is gorgeous. the receptionist was super helpful too! The dining room and their breakfast could do with a bit of updating (and please don't try and...

In an imposing sea front location and very convenient for all the facilities of Eastbourne. Room very clean & comfortable and all linen changed daily. Staff pleasant and attentive and the dining room breakfast was excellent in quality and layout. The big disappointment was that the lovely fresh fruit on offer (raspberries,cherries, blueberries, strawberries) disappeared with the tennis players.

This is a lovely Hotel. The staff were very professional as you would expect from an hotel of this calibre. Checking in was a quick and simple process. Our room was immaculate and we had a wonderful view of the Eastbourne coastline. The Cavendish is on the sea front. There is a car park that you pay for on a... More
