I absolutely love the Cavendish. This is the seventh time that i have here this year The staff here are always so friendly and helpful. I learnt when I came down the that the hotel has just been sold. I REALLY HOPE THAT THE NEW OWNERS KEEP THE STANDARDS ULP THAT I AM USED TO.

I have stayed at the Cavendish several times since my last review. The standard of service and staff remain excellent. Rooms in the new build area are preferable for me mainly because the larger windows give such panoramic sea views. Rooms can be very warm and windows do not open very far (health and safety apparently). Rooms are cleaned to... More

We enjoyed our two days and night. Breakfast was included which was excellent! Our room was large and had a balcony which was great because there was a band playing across the street in the band stand and there was fireworks at the end. My husband and I sat out for a few hours to watch we had perfect seats.... More

This hotel has great potential, but unfortunately fails to live up to it. It has a superb sea front location, just a stone's throw away from the band stand (OK, I didn't actually try throwing a stone to the band stand, as that's probably frowned upon, but I bet you could if you were in an upper floor at the...

Very well appointed bedroom, but very hot until we found the fan. Excellent staff serving excellent service. Nothing was any trouble to any of the staff. Everything was so well organised. Wished we had booked a sea view, but that was our mistake!

Stayed there for two nights for a friend's wedding in July 2015. It is in a lovely location and very convenient for all that Eastbourne has to offer, but that is where the positives end for the most part. It was a relatively cool summer day when I arrived (slightly windy and 19 degrees Celsius) but inside the hotel was... More

Found a good offer on Trivago for a one night midweek stay in July. Was not sure what to expect from other reviews - but our room was excellent - sea view and balcony! I suspect that the "dated room reviews" come from the older part of the hotel, whereas our room was in the 1960's built wing, and was... More

Great staff and ground floor of hotel looks amazing. However, bedroom really 2-3* so not sure how hotel has higher rating. No air con, really hit room as it faced the sea. Basic furniture almost 70's in appearance. Breakfast was great and as mentioned staff very helpful and friendly. Over priced at £150 per night!

Stayed for one night, midweek in July. Arrived two hours before the stated checking in time and was told room was ready and gave us the key. We were given a top floor room with a balcony. Think it must have been an upgrade as we had just booked a double room. Must say room was large and had a... More
