The hotel is located right on the beach and it looks nice from the outside. So the location is a WOW. The rooms are old old old. This place needs a renovation. Old shower. Old rugs. Old furniture. No AC. which was needed on the night I was there. Not coming back, sorry.

Arrived for much needed break. Staff very welcoming and attentive. Room and bathroom were immaculately clean with plush complimentary toiletries. Breakfast was fabulous but as out, I didn't sample evening dinner. Welcomed use of spa facilities and treated myself to an excellent back massage by Susan. Recommend +++. Hotel overlooks sea and breakfast/dining room gave an excellent sea view. Central... More

We stayed at the Cavendish for 1 night while visiting Eastbourne for a friends wedding. The room was immaculately clean and the bathroom very modernly decorated. Staff were extremely helpful and were able to facilitate our request for an early check in so we could get ready for said wedding. We did order some food on room service and it... More

We were in Eastbourne for a friends wedding and decided to stay overnight at the last minute. The Cavendish is situated on the seafront and is furnished to a high standard, the room was large and spacious with a sea view. The room service food was excellent. The only negative was the lack of air conditioning

The Cavendish Hotel is one of Eastbourne's Luxury hotels on the sea front. The Cavendish Hotel looks great inside and you feel that you've stepped into a luxury building. The inside of the rooms does look great. Its clean and looks very confutable. So ENJOY

We arrived at the hotel before noon on 13 June for a short stay. We were aware that check in time was after 3pm but we had arrived in Eastbourne early and went to the reception to ask if they could store our luggage until the check in time. We were delighted to hear from the very helpful receptionist that... More

We stayed last night, in a sea view room and I thought the price of £188 for B&B was expensive for a room with tired furniture and bedding. The view is fab and lovely to wake up to, but the downside is a stiflingly hot room, no air con and windows that don't open enough to be genuinely useful for... More
