Had a great overnight stay here. Really well positioned as just far enough away from the town to be quiet but close enough to walk to the town, pier etc. Comfortable room, yes there are odd furry curtains but nice to have a change from the usual Travelodge/Holiday Inn decor! Breakfast was sufficient although we paid £4 and had the... More

I felt I should write a review as I generally sleep really badly (if at all) on the first night of my stay somewhere... However, at The Big Sleep I was asleep quickly and slept through the night having 7+ hours sleep!! The room with on suite was excellent and the whole hotel was incredibly clean and well looked after.... More

We decided rather late on, to stay overnight after a family celebration and so many hotels were booked up in Eastbourne or very expensive. We had stayed in the Big Sleep a few years back and knew what to expect but again the only accommodation available was a suite! We were very pleased with the very large room on the... More

A quirky interior in need of updating but very clean . A mixture of colours and textures used makes it a memorable stay !A sea view and very good value for money ! Easy walking distance to the sea or into the town .

As everyone knows, this is a budget hotel so you should know what to expect when you get there! The reception area and bar/restaurant are very clean and pleasant and give a good impression when you first arrive. Once you get to you room (via a somewhat small and slow elevator!) you walk into a basic but well equipped room.... More

Great location for Devonshire Park tennis. Parking excellent and cheap/ Great location for local restaurants, or a stroll to the sea front. Good for families. There is a games room which my two children loved! We had the family room which was basic. would have benefited from a deep clean rather than a quick wipe round. Bed was extremely uncomfortable...

Stayed at The Big Sleep Hotel in a week night and only paid £54 for the room. I don't think I would pay more for it. We got room 219, the pink room that is featured on the hotel website.
