Please note: this hotel is now closed - I walked past it on Sunday 12 August and it is closed with For Sales notices everywhere. Nice location - might be good for someone wanting to start a new venture!

I booked through Travelstyle, Now I know most of their trips are you get what you pay for but I wouldn't go to this hotel again if it was given free. I think my room must have been on par with the other reviews because it was dank, damp, cold smelly, odd fitting curtains, no sink in the toilet/shower room... More

HAPPILY SURPRISED. I was origionally booked into another hotel in Eastbourne and the holiday company changed my holiday booking to the Heatherleigh. I was really upset and considered cancelling my holiday altogether, especially after reading the reviews linked to this hotel.
