Great place to stay ample room with good facilities and an equally large bathroom. The sleeping side was good with a good view of beaches and seafront. Very close to amenities and town center with a couple of places to eat and drink in adjoining street.

Lovely sea view, friendly staff. Rooms were comfortable with everything you needed. The only dislike for me was the coffee at breakfast, however the selection of items for the continental breakfast was excellent. We paid an extra £4 one of the days for a cooked breakfast, which was well cooked and tasty. I would happily have paid a supplement for...

I was very disappointed with this hotel as it doesnt look like the pictures, the first room they gave me was too smal to fit the travel cot in with a very small bathroom too very outdated! but eventually changed to a bigger room which was still very outdated but had more space, i was travelling with a baby so...

The Big Sleep Hotel in Eastbourne is I believe one of three sites of hotels bearing this name (Cardiff and Cheltenham) and now run by the Compass Hospitality group. The hotel boasts an enviable position right on the seafront. We were able to park immediately and easily outside in the road, and for £1 from the hotel, issued a 12...

We arrived in the evening with my partner checking us in. The hotel itself presents more as a hostel with some provisions being classed as a hotel offering. We were offered a parking permit by the hotel for the cost of £1, not bad but the parking on the sea front and just outside the hotel is free after 6pm...

Really recommend this hotel staff very pleasant and so so helpful, even offered to change my tyre after i got a puncture. Very clean. Breakfast something for everyone. Would highly recommend. The sea view was lovely. And in walking distance to the pier or the theatre. Lovely location. Really quiet and peaceful.

We have stayed here twice in the last month. The staff are pleasant & helpful, the provided continental breakfast very nice & seafront location good. Rooms clean, good value for money and £1 for a permit for parking for a day outside hotel. Only downside the room was very hot and there was a slight stale smell of cigarettes in...

Just a one night stay for me. I got a top floor single room with a side view of the sea/pier. It was clean and I slept like a log. Breakfast in the morning is a buffet style affair for cereals, hot drinks, toast, pastries etc. But you can also 'upgrade' to a full English for £3 (or double sized...

I booked this hotel through Booking.com and thought I had booked a different hotel (the View) - it was only when I printed the confirmation that I realised my mistake. I thought it was cheap - a suite for £72 with breakfast! As we'd booked the 'no cancellation' option, we though 'oh well- it's done, so let's see what we've...
