we arrived at the hotel, the receptionist was very friendly and allowed us to check in early. The hotel also provided a parking pass for us (£1). The room itself was ver small. the bathroom was tiny. the building was dated and dusty. the room was not very clean, and contrary to the expedia website there was no climate control.... More

I stayed at the hotel two weeks ago with my husband. According to the previous reviews the hotel is disgusting and awful. I feel sorry for those who had bad experience of their stay. Nevertheless I wouldn't judge it by those comments as it would not be fair. Usually people don't have time to share their experience unless they have... More

We have just returned from a two night stay, b & b, having paid an inflated walk in rate due to the Airshow, staying in room 307 (the one with the gold footstool and Jacuzzi bath they use in promotional photos on their website). We paid £260 but the same two days next week is £216. The landing smelled damp... More

I stayed for two nights and thought the hotel was ok. Very hot room with difficult to use shower but clean and tidy. No wifi In room but was in the lobby which was inconvenient but not the end of the world. Not a very good bar and would not recommend, breakfast ok but felt under pressure because of the... More

Visited Eastbourne on 29th June on the off chance of booking a couple of rooms for my husband & I & son, daughter in law & child. The rooms were very expensive, luckily we were shown one room by a very nice member of staff, roundabout 5pm, walking along the corridors wasn't very impressive, skirtings looked like they needed a...

Have recently stayed at this hotel and found it very nice. We had a second floor sea view room which was very spacious and very comfortable beds and lovely plump pillows. The hospitality tray was replenished each day and had a nice choice of biscuits too. The bath/shower rom was adequate, spotlessly clean and good quality fluffy white towels. We... More

Stayed at this hotel for an event weekend. The hotel is very nicely situated on the seafront, close to the pier, and the shopping centre of Eastbourne. Right from our arrival we were made very welcome, with a cup of tea, and then shown to our rooms. This is what I would call a rabbit warren hotel, with rooms popping... More

I booked to stay at this establishment over Easter weekend, and cannot have wished for a better stay. My room was clean and tidy and the staff were both helpful and polite. I will return in the near future. The food was also very good, A thumbs up from me.

As other reviews have pointed out this hotel is tired and needs a facelift both inside and out. However, this is not the main issue that guests will have to face if travelling independently. I stayed with my Mum for six nights on a bed and breakfast basis. We each had a double room with sea view. These rooms were... More
