Really well positioned hotel opposite the beach. We had a sea view which was lovely. Room large and clean and nice toiletries. WiFi not good in rooms and we were on the first floor, but it was not a big issue for us. Lovely breakfast that was free as we booked direct with the hotel. I don't usually eat a... More

Right from checking in we were welcomed and everything was explained to us. We visited during the Eastbourne Air Show and parking was difficult in town (especially as one of our group was arriving later with the car) - the chap on reception advised us and we found parking very easily despite the Air Show restrictions closing many parking spaces...

We had a lovely room of a brick wall.Ours was clean but very small only just enough room to walk round the double bed. When we checked out the bathroom we couldn't... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for my birthday, having previously visited in 2002. I'd read online that the hotel had a change of management and had undergone a programme of refurbishment. We chose a similar room to the previous visit (for about the same price!). We were pleasantly surprised with the changes to the bar and dining areas and... More

Friendly & attentive staff. Great location on the seafront. The room, whilst basic was clean; although the desk had lots of marks & the bathroom door wasn't painted properly. We found it quiet & as we were on the ground floor didn't have any problems with water pressure - although it is a teeny bathroom. The room didn't have net... More

Anyway we booked here for our last night at £59 and it was GREAT! The staff are so friendly and helpful i could... More

I booked as it said it had been recently refurbished; I could see they had done work but, despite paying for a room with a sea view, it was rather sad and tired. I had 3 bay windows - 2 were painted shut and the 3rd opened but could not be locked (with next door room across a bit of... More

This hotel is 3 Victorian houses knocked into one so its a bit quirky with 2 staircases and an old fashioned lift. There's no air con so the breakfast rooms and bedrooms can get hot but its clean and the front of house staff are young and genuinely friendly and welcoming, You can hear the sea from the sea view...
