We arrived to a warm welcome. The hotel is very tastefully decorated and our deluxe room was fantastic. It was huge with a lovely bay window and super kingsize bed. The food is very good with a lovely bar and restaurant. Great central location, near the seafront. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Eastbourne has long been a favourite of mine but since moving to Scotland, not such a frequent destination. When a local coach company was advertising a six night stay, I took the opportunity to revisit some favourite haunts. I have stayed at several hotels in the area but not The New Wilmington. Due to the distance of our journey and... More

Travelled down to Eastbourne for a weeks stay at the New Wilmington Hotel, what a lovely place this was just off the sea front. I cannot find anything negative to say the Hotel was spotless, lovely on suite bedrooms and what a choice you had for your breakfast and evening meals, all of the staff went out of their way...

Excellent location for Eastbourne Tennis and a lovely welcome and check-out by the reception staff. Can highly recommend it. Room was very clean and well furnished. The only negative was the breakfast service. Food excellent, but very unfriendly waiting staff.

When you click on room type it shows a fairly contemporary room with purple walls & white bedding with a modern white bathroom suite.To our horror we were shown on arrival to a room with an avocado green suite clearly last updated some time in 1970. When I objected we... More

We arrived later than expected and what was nice, was the fact the the lady on reception addressed me by name and said we were expected. As a disabled person I was given keys to enter the Hotel from the rear, thereby avoiding the few steps into the building. The room was excellent clean and the bedding smelt fresh, the... More
