I had booked this as a reasonably priced option for a quick weekend getaway and was extremely impressed. Not only good value, but the room was nice and clean, with a lovely power shower and even tea/coffee making facilities and a continental breakfast was included which had all the favourites on offer. The hotel itself also boasted a very nice... More

We were looking for a place to stay over the Bank Holiday weekend with our 3 kids and 2 dogs and The Big Sleep ticked all the boxes. We arrived in Eastbourne, parked up outside the hotel and purchased a parking permit from reception for £1 (this was such great value as we paid over £20 to park for a... More

We go down to Eastbourne every year for the tennis tournament and have tried quite a few hotels by now but find The Big Sleep the most convenient. I always request sea view (and get it) and the rooms are clean. Parking is easy (with residents' permit from the hotel) and the hotel is close to the entrance to the... More

We stopped in a Family Room which had a double bed and bunk beds.The room was quite spacious with a good size bathroom. The children liked the funky blue curtains!! No frills but clean and... More

Stayed here at the weekend and was impressed. Good value, friendly staff, modern hotel, free Wi-Fi, comfy beds, decent shower and a good location - can't ask for much more. Can't comment on the food as didn't make it down for breakfast but the bar is open all night which is a bonus! The only negative point I would make... More

We needed only "a roof over our heads" whilst attending event at Winter Gardens, which is almost within sight. Pier area a 10 minute amble away along the seafront. Continental breakfast sufficed for us (cereals, fruit, toaster and little warm pastries), but the (extra) cooked breakfast looked good. An ironing room on our floor (2nd) is a nice touch. The...

This is not a fancy hotel but it is clean, conveniently located and the staff are all extremely nice and helpful. I am booked in again next weekend and would definitely recommend The Big Sleep to friends. I have given the hotel an excellent rating because it is not trying to be a 5 Star hotel and for a budget...
