This was our second visit to the Cavendish & unlike the first time we were extremely disappointed, the room was small & cramped, the room number 332 overlooked the car park, the bed was so hard I did not sleep, there is no air con so very uncomfortable, nit a good experience will not be going back again

We stayed here for two nights over a weekend. The hotel has a good location near the band stand and was very convenient for enjoying a weekend in Eastbourne. I would say the hotel is ok, it's perfectly fine and at a reasonable price. Our room had a sea view and it was ok , quite small in need of... More

This was a three night break for my parents 50th anniversary, as my parents always wanted to stay here! Upon arrival there was no parking, we had to find parking on the street which wasn't easy. Parking was an issue the whole time we were there, the reception ran out of parking permits so we had to pay more money.... More

3 night break in July. Room as described, but needed TLC, as does the rest of the hotel. Well positioned on the seafront, by bandstand. Staff uninterested, but functional. Parking book, but refused. Stood my ground and a member of staff was asked to move their car. Why bother taking bookings?

The staff are friendly and very helpful however the plush reception hides the fact that the bedrooms are dated and in need of some TLC. Breakfast buffet was sparse with no restocking of food. Bedrooms lack air conditioning and can be very warm. Very central location.

I stayed here on the evening of the 12th July for one night. This is a sea front hotel close to the pier and only a short walk from many restaurants should you eat out. Rooms are spacious and clean and have tea making facilities. A good size ensuite bathroom with heated towel rail and comfortable bed. The usual buffet... More

I stayed here recently during the Aegon International Tennis tournament. The single rooms are very small, there's no AC at all, and even thou it can be breezy outside, the rooms get extremely hot at night. We were provided with fans, but still was very uncomfortable. Also, our room was right in front of the closet where the maids keep... More
