My wife and I have just spent 4 nights with a coach party at The Congress Hotel. Eastbourne. On arrival and throughout the whole stay the staff were most helpful and pleasant. The room was spacious with all the usual facilities. It is a little old fashioned but clean and well maintained. It has a warm and friendly atmosphere. We... More

Was a great place for us for the Airshow. Only stayed one night but no complaints. A bit old fashion, but staff very friendly. A nice sized room and the bed was very confortable. Lovely breakfast and you had your own waiter/ress. Not much parking at hotel but plenty of street parking which enabled us to leave the car for... More

Having just returned from The Congress Hotel with a group of 30 people, some of which were disabled, vegetarian and suffering from Celiac disease. The hotel and the staff were very accommodating and could not do enough to help any of us and the food was excellent. The rooms and the public areas of the hotel were spotless, we would... More

Good breakfast table service. Over sixties it seems. It was OK. I'd do it again. I like big old houses, this was a rabbit warren of stairs and doors. Can imagine giving up and sleeping on landing if anebriated which I wasn't! Run a ball of string from your door handle. LOL!

I arrived in Eastbourne by train, on business, and carrying four different pieces of luggage. My taxi driver from the railway station was very helpful, not so the hotel on arrival... The front door of the hotel was locked and I spent several minutes ringing every bell and knocking on the door trying to get attention. In the end, a... More

Although this hotel is a little dated inside and could do with better lighting in places the staff are eager to please and nice with it. WiFi was available in most rooms and the comfort of the bed was to die for, just didn't want to get out of it

Stayed here for one night. Had a single room which was a very good size and the bathroom which went with it was also very big. No having to step over the toilet to get into the shower here!! However the room had a real mish mash of furniture with no two items of furnishing the same. the rooms were... More
