Location is top notch, but I have to admit Cavendish did not deliver for me. Food quality in Bar was mixed - probably one of the worst club sandwiches I've had, but the steak sandwich was good. The poached eggs at breakfast was so vinegary I struggled to eat it, and I found blueberries and strawberries with mould on them.... More

Lovely stay and lovely weather too, was very lucky. The Cavendish Hotel was well kept, clean and friendly. The room (281) a twin room, was big and very comfortable. All amenities were there including a hair dryer. Comfortable beds, TV, wifi, etc.. A lovely stay and would go back.

Stayed here during Airbourne ...lovely hotel and spotlessly clean. Room nice with a wonderful huge window overlooking the sea. The only criticism of the room was the lack of ventilation ...window only had limited opening ....need to sort this problem as it became quite uncomfortable and sleep was limited even with the fan going like mad !! All staff really... More

We had a lovely spacious room and the bed was huge. The mattress and pillows were not that comfy but not terrible either. The view from our room was very pretty as we were able to see the beach and the promenade. It would have been nice to have a fridge in the room. The restaurant where we had breakfast... More

Stayed for Airbourne weekend. Lovely hotel. Checked in Friday and a wedding was also in. Won't go in to details but the wedding was basically a huge drinking session with behaviour to match and extremely serious consequences for one guest ( 6 police cars and a van turned up ). Not sure of the wisdom of booking a wedding in... More

This hotel has a lovely location on the seafront. The huge bedroom we had (no 312) had a wonderful sea view - four windows... - from which we watched some of Eastbourne's Airbourne annual aeroplane show. The room was simply furnished, but had all that we needed. The breakfast was good (even if the so called "very hot" plates were... More

We go to Airbourne every year with our family. Each year we end up in the cavendish. The staff seemed to be under pressure as they were only two girls behind the main bar. Which wasn't enough. Each year up until this year they always had the same young man singing and playing the guitar. But when we enquired they... More
