I had booked an online discounted package with an upgrade. I am not sure what difference the upgrade made apart from being provided with a bowl of fruit which was nice. I was very impressed with the service in the dining room. You only had to wait a minute or so and a waitress or waiter came up to ask... More

Staff friendly, hotel clean. No showers in most rooms. Food was well cooked but the menu was rubbish. Breakfast was at 8.15 and if you were late the staff got very upset. Entertainment was bingo bingo and bingo, every night bingo. Overall the stay was a disaster and will not go there again ever. This was certainly the worst tinsel... More

We decided to take a cheap break in Eastbourne through living social as we always go to Brighton. I had been warned that Eastbourne was a little bit slower going that Brighton but to be honest, that was an exaggeration. The offer included breakfast and a 3 course evening meal which was on par with school dinners. Everything was put... More

Forty-eight of us went on a Turkey and Tinsel week-end. We were the Three Valley Male Singers and we gave two concerts in local churches. As we had to leave the hotel early on two occasions they provided our meals at special times to that of the other guests. It was difficult to find any fault with the staff or... More

We have just returned from our second two night trip to this hotel. We didn't know that it was a turkey & tinsel weekend so were pleasantly surprised. The food was good, the entertainment was spot on, the rooms were very comfortable and clean and the staff were most pleasant. We will definitely go back again.
