My partner and I booked a hotel in Eastbourne through Bookings.com for a Friday and Saturday night because we had been invited to a wedding. A few weeks before the wedding we had a call saying the hotel we had originally booked had been overbooked and so they were moving us to the East Beach. At first I felt a bit put out because I started wondering if the East Beach would be as good as the place we originally had booked. But they agreed to honour the price we booked the original hotel for and so we thought we'd give it a try and see.
When we got to Eastbourne we drove past the hotel we had originally booked and it did look a bit of a dump from the outside, but when we got to the East Beach it looked really nice from the outside and made us feel quite pleased to have been moved. The welcome we got from the lady on reception was really friendly and when we got in our room we were pleasantly surprised.
The room was very clean and the en-suite bathroom floor was really shiny like it had just been polished. There was a small tv and a dvd player, although we didn't use the dvd player at all and only used the tv a little bit. The bed was very comfy and a good size, although it was too single beds pushed together rather than one double bed. We did have to walk through the dining room to get to our room but that wasn't too much of a problem.
We didn't eat dinner in the hotel, but we had breakfast on both days and it was very nice. Full English with toast, tea/coffee and juice and cereal if you wanted it. I couldn't fault the breakfast or any of the staff who we spoke to whilst we stayed, everyone was very accomodating. There was entertainment in the hotel bar on both nights we were there, but we didn't stay to wach it as the town centre was only a ten minute walk away and most pubs and bars were open til 2am.
In general the weekend was really good, and we were both really pleased of how it had turned out with us being moved to the East Beach. We would definately stay at the East Beach again in the future.
