The hotel has been upgraded and the rooms are much more stylish. The hotel is located right on the seafront and balcony rooms have great views. The staff are all great...they seem happy in their jobs and service is good. Good choice at breakfast.

Great location on the seafront. Modern rooms with attractively decorated public areas. Great view from the balcony of our room. Friendly staff. No parking, but we got permits from the hotel which allowed parking until 11.00am the following day for £1.00.

Me and my husband stayed here for our first wedding anniversary. Upon arrival we were greeted very warmly by reception staff and were given our room, however I had asked for a balcony room and it didn't have one, I went to reception to query it and straight away was moved, it wasn't a problem, our card key didn't work...

Stayed here many times, very modern hotel. Clean and balcony sea view rooms are great. Although booked some time ago was allocated a disabled room, not requested. Think they are really best suited to disabled people. Did get room swap the next evening however. Staff all very helpful and friendly. Breakfast very good also. Still think lack of information pack... More

I spent a long weekend in May at The View Hotel. The hotel is conveniently located, clean with friendly staff. Rooms with ocean view are highly recommended. If you driving to the hotel parking permits are available from the hotel at a reduced cost.

We wanted a totally relaxing time for our wedding anniversary, Maureen loves the sea but needed to rest so I looked for somewhere with a great View. Paid a small supplement for an executive suite giving a living area and 2 balconies on the corner of the hotel with fantastic views over the sea and towards Beachy head. laid on... More

Highly recommend this hotel, very clean, very comfortable. The double bed I had was enormous! Stayed here on business and everything was very professionally done. The breakfast was a large buffet that catered for all. Would be 5 stars if they had a spa or gym to use!

This is a real find. It was founded as a holiday place for union members in the 60s and still has a charming memory of thise times, celebrating workers and their right to a few days rest and recuperation by the sea. The rooms are much nicer and smarter than most hotels along the south coast, lovely fluffy towels, nice... More

My husband and I have just returned from a three night short break - the hotel was very clean, very comfortable, the full English breakfasts were excellent. On arrival we did feel the receptionist was efficient - which was good, but lacked warmth - which was not so good. This was not so of the young male receptionist who dealt... More

I was in Sunny Eastbourne for a Unite conference for two days with some fellow union reps. Its in a brilliant position over looking the sea. The staff are very attentive, the rooms comfy and they serve good food. I now need to go on a diet!
