It was nice and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a lovely sea view room on the 4th floor with a large double bed (two singles put together well). I would recommend paying an extra £10 for the sea view room. We booked with booking.com but the direct rate was the same so it made no difference. The public areas are very nice, clean and welcoming and the xmas decorations were really tasteful. I have stayed in better 4 star hotels but for some reason seaside 4 star hotels in the UK seem to lack something that other 4 stars have. The room was nice but could do with investment. There were some small things that niggled me; eg there was no conditioner in the room and when we asked for some we were told there was none in the Hotel, we were staying just after xmas so maybe they just ran out. The room was too warm so we turned the rad off, this made no difference, there should be a thermostat in a room these days. The breakfast was very nice although the eggs benedict I ordered wasn’t great. We were told that there was a charge for parking but this wasn’t applied when we checked out. I do like this hotel and if I'm back in Eastbourne and can’t get a deal in the Grand then I will be back
