I initially booked a four night business trip but was so impressed by the charm of the hotel and the hospitality on offer I extended my stay to explore Eastbourne further . The Courtlands Hotel offers all the facilities you would expect from a hotel as a business or leisure traveller, with friendly but not intrusive service. There is ample... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Courtlands Hotel and would definitely go back there again. The location of the hotel is ideal, giving easy access to the seafront and the town centre as well as the Congress Theatre. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and the bathroom looked very new. We had both dinner and breakfast in the... More

The internet site pictures showed a decent looking 3star hotel with a car park as additional feature. When we arrived the outlook of the hotel was quite shabby and the internet pictures didnt show the accomodation next to the hotel which looked even worse. The Asian lady was helpful, but the scottish gentleman was not. The room was dissapointing, given... More

The internet and our brochure are both a mirror image of the hotel and its furnishings etc. BOTH HAVE BEEN PROVIDED BY A SPECIALIST PROFESIONAL COMPANY. This person MR B brought his wife to a hotel, he in fact should have taken her to a hospital in the first place as she was not in good condition when booking in.... More

I recently had the misfortune of staying at the courtlands hotel with my wife. We were greeted by a drunk Scottish man who rudely asked us what room we had booked. He then made an inappropriate joke towards my wife. We were then led up to our room and what a sight it was! Thick with dust on every surface... More

Firstly we have an idea who sent this review. Courtlands Hotel is one of the few hotels with a sizable car park which is opposite shows. During each day and evening, although it is well signed “Permit Holders Only” we often get people who are not residents parking and attempting to run off, well this review was done by one... More

I have had the pleasure of visiting the Courtland's hotel on many occasions over the past few years . Sandy and Tom the owners and hosts are most congenial and nothing is ever too much . Many of the rooms are renovated to a very good standard and always well serviced as are the bathroom and shower facilities. The food... More

this was a last-minute weekend away and we chose this hotel as it had the best reviews among the hotels that had available rooms on that weekend. Our room was the tiniest room I've ever slept and certainly £94 is far too much for it. it would have worked better as a cupboard. the bed mattress was quite so old... More

All rooms are of regulated size and some are larger you also get what you pay for. I feel the guest who wrote this review tends to exaggerate. As The Hotel Inspector has stayed in this room it and the room size is standard double room. The guest booked in for one night but used the facilities car park etc.... More

We chose this hotel because it was opposite the main entrance of the Tennis tournament we wished to attend. Even taking the often poor standard of British hotels in account in comparison to continental standard, our 7 days stay at Courtlands Hotel topped it all. Unfriendly reception, the Asian lady supervised personally how and where our car was parked properly... More

Hotel is just across the road from Devonshire Park and the theatre. The pier is probably half a mile along the seafront. It is fairly easy to locate and there is free parking to the front of the hotel. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. We had room 4 which overlooked the gardens and park to the rear of the...

We stayed for three nights and enjoyed it tremendously. The location is perfect, a minute from the sea front, overlooking a large green space, next to the Towner gallery, theatre(s) and a short walk from the centre of Eastbourne. The staff were great, and everything very clean. Will go back.
