Back again for another week at the View Hotel. This time I was in an executive room on the 3rd floor. The room was quite spacious, clean and quiet, even though I was at the front of the hotel. The room had a large balcony which was lovely. Bathroom has a separate shower and also included a bath that could... More

When you get to the View hotel you’d be forgiven for retreating outside to check that you’re in the right place. From my limited experience of office receptions in industrial estates this could well be one of them, I expected to sign in and be given a pass. It’s not only the reception that isn’t very hotel like, the whole... More

Dear swiftus, Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay. I have to confess that I’m not a lover of Marmite although like many things in life I appreciate those that do.

We arrived on the Saturday with me panicing about parking, but as another reviewer said, there was no need as plenty of spaces opposite the hotel for £1 a day (ticket from reception). We were in Eastbourne for the Lammas Festival, so thought parking would be difficult. Arrived in reception to be greeted by wonderful and friendly staff who took... More

The hotel is on the seafront with exceptional views across Eastbourne front and the sea. Our room was clean and tidy with a private balcony. Items in the room were hospitality tray,hairdryer, ironing board etc. Due to internal refurbishment breakfast was in another area, but it was all laid out and very nice. The staff were attentive and reception helpful... More

I had to make a family visit to East Sussex and chose to stay for a couple of nights. The hotel I normally stay in, which is nearer to my family, was full but I saw that The View Hotel in Eastbourne was available and had a great reviewers' rating, so I thought I'd drop in. The hotel is situated... More

This is our third stay at the View and once again it has lived up to expectations. It is good to see familiar staff and the overall service and standards are maintained since our first trip some 5 years ago. The bar was a little more lively and raucous than before. We had room 410 and the standard of cleaning... More

The View Hotel is ideally located on the sea-front at Eastbourne, a short stroll from the town centre and the pier with uninterrupted views of the sea. I booked a premium single room - which didn't carry much of a premium cost - and was allocated a room on the 6th floor. The room was very well equipped with modern... More

Great spot lovely views and rooms are excellent also breakfast was great.pity about quality of pints at the bar weak watery flat and cloudy lager.I would expect better when the price for one is over 4 pound.but Wee found a great local bar called Newhaven social club which served great quality pints at just 2.90.

Stayed in Eastbourne for the last two years on a blokes golf break. Previous place was a perfectly pleasant but slightly dated hotel. For me The View was head and shoulders above the previous establishment. Check in was efficient and easy. Checking out took all of ten seconds, presumably as a result of a good computer system plus experienced staff.... More
