Excellent spacious room, Excellent food, friendly staff, couldn't fault it, close to all 3 theatres, parking is on the seafront opposite the hotel but it only costs £1 a day with a voucher from the hotel. All in all a great hotel ☺

When searching for a hotel in Eastbourne that had suitable facilities for my elderly disabled / wheelchair bound mother I was struggling, which was surprising considering the numbers of elderly persons visiting Eastbourne. Many hotels had little or no facilities. That is until I found The View hotel. They have made many of their rooms on the second floor wheelchair... More

All the staff were extremely helpful and made my stay very pleasant. The hotel has just been refurbished and everywhere was spotlessly clean. (Nothing puts me off a more than dirty rooms and faded décor). You won't find that here. I thought car parking was going to be a problem but it was easy to buy parking vouchers from reception...

Fabulous room, spacious with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony overlooking the sea. The whole hotel was clean and modern. Breakfast was just average and we didn't have any evening meals so cannot comment on their quality. This was our fourth visit to this hotel so they must be doing something right.

Fabulous, reasonably priced hotel right on the sea front. Wonderful rooms and facilities. Extremely pleasant stay. Breakfast was plentiful and staff very helpful and polite. Parking is right outside the hotel though we were there when the airshow started and had to find alternative parking further back from the seafront. However parking cost £1 per day with permit from hotel... More

Hmm what to say about the view hotel well let's see first thing you can't smoke on the balconies which I think is the silliest thing I have ever heard, they said we had to go to the roof for a cigarette which if we had known we would have ordered a first floor cheaper room and not spent £144...

As the name of the hotel - great view. You can see the sea and the pier. The hotel has everything in order. Only thing it lacks is a little charm. But this is fine. Location is great, you're practically in the center of Eastbourne. Lot's of really good restaurants nearby. (Check on tripadviser) :)

Went to this hotel after having booked tickets to see a concert in the Congress Theatre which is just a short walk away. Well situated on the waterfront there is ample parking (reduced fee as hotel guest) and even free on a Sunday! The room was very spacious and the hotel is modern. Confusing windows for doors is quite easily... More

Is this a resort hotel, conference hotel, tour hotel, business hotel – or ??? If you’re looking for a resort hotel directly on the promenade at Eastbourne with sea views from many rooms and only a short walk to the pier, promenade and bandstand – this hotel will be appropriate you. It also seems to be well suited to conferences... More
