The meals are of good quality and choice. entertainment of a good standard. I have visited this hotel twice now and would... More

We visited Eastbourne for a friends engagement party. We had travelled 5hours and arrived at the hotel around 2pm. The owners were not in at the time so the son checked us in. We got told later on that their son should not have checked us in and check in was at 3pm. We had a 15month old baby. We... More

Tried to talk to manager, but he was to busy. Left my number but no call back service really poor and porter was really rude. A very tired and grubby hotel I would never stay there. There a better and at similar prices.

We spent 2 nights here and it has good and bad points. The location was great and we received a friendly welcome. The room was very basic and could do with a spruce up (the net curtains needed replacing) but the bed was very comfortable. We were on business so had to leave before breakfast began and so they provided... More

First thing to note about this hotel is that it is very cheap - we paid £37 for an en suite room including breakfast or for a sea view it was an extra fiver (which turned out to be well worth it for a fantastic view of the continuous lightning storm breaking out to sea). For this you get a... More

There are some really interesting Victorian fronts to hotels in Eastbourne, and the facades should probably be retained, but the buildings really are getting beyond tired. The Marine Parade Hotel is a case in point. The owners have, apparently, invested in refurbishment but it doesn't really show. Even things that they do have easy control over haven't been addressed. The... More

It is quite sad that an individual has enough time to write such a detailed review. As with all reviews, some points are relevant, others are not. I will not go through it point by point as we were clearly not the hotel for you, but as an overview here are one or two points that others should bear in... More

We recently spent 4 nights in room 27 which was VERY basic. Having stayed in basic hotel rooms before we weren't expecting 4* but this room was awful. The wardrobe and attached chest of drawers were badly damaged, old and tatty, but the shower room was a whole new experience! It was the smallest we had ever seen, when sitting... More

I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us, or indeed that you felt the need to misquote me following our lengthy discussions about the state of your room. As you know we are in an ongoing state of refurbishment and I think it was the fact that your ensuite hadn't yet been refurbished that was the root cause... More

We stayed at the Marine Parade Hotel during the airshow this year. Our room was nice, clean, spacious, with everything that we needed including a generous supply of coffee/tea making facilities. The staff were all very friendly and pleasant, particularly the young woman who greeted us when we first arrived. I thought that it was a very nice touch that... More

Hi! I recently celebrated my 40th b'day and booked in at this hotel for two nights, loved our stay and slept well. The ensuite bathroom met all my requirements, and the overall hotel atmosphere good.Breakfast was fine and the idea of a basket of goodies left out for late arrivals was well received! A clever thought, thank you :)
