We stayed in the family room (2 adults& 12 year old) first floor facing the pier. The room was big with big windows and with a nice views (it was a corner room). In July it was very hot, but we opened all the windows and it was ok. Yes, the hotel is old and maybe needs a face lift... More

When we arrived here I was horrified to see 10 steps up to reception WITHOUT a handrail, very difficult if you have a walking stick and case. When we checked in I asked if they had a lift and was told "Yes but only to half floors" I asked what he meant and he said " If you want 1st... More

Two single rooms booked for myself and my 18 year old son. My room was quite spacious for a single, bathroom was lovely however room in need of major overhaul. Old fashioned bed was dreadful, uncomfortable and creaked everytime I moved. My sons room was abysmal very small floor crooked and old fashioned. I understand it is a Victorian hotel... More

The hotel is a listed building but the décor is tired and shabby in places. I had a single room which was very dark , didn't help there was scaffolding outside the window I think was for the building next door. The en suite was fine though. Maybe if the windows had been cleaned it would feel a little better.... More

Staff are trying and do there best. That's where the good points end. Very tatty decor paper torn paint has yellowed grubby and sub standard, manager said this was due to hotel being 120 years old, so is the paint I think. The hotel was boiling hot with no attempt to cool things down, no room service, no phone in... More

I don't know if we stayed at a different hotel to your other reviewers as the hotel was far below the standard you would expect. Perhaps it was just our room -we were in 205. Brought my mum away for a long weekend. PROS: The hotel is in a good position opposite the pier and we had a sea view... More

Booked this hotel on line and was pleasantly surprised. Our room had a great view over looking the Eastbourne pier and the sea!. The room was a good size, nice bathroom, good storage and free WiFi. The carpet was not the best with a few marks and some of the paintwork was chipped but the bed was comfortable and the... More

Good points is that it's clean with a great location opposite the pier with a nice sea view from the bedroom. Bad points being it's very basic, lacks some basic maintenance in the bathroom and it's a bit like a rabbit warren when finding your room. A bit expensive for what you get but a decent breakfast stopped a poor... More

I stayed two nights in a single room. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. The bathroom was old-fashioned, a bit worn but spacious and had excellent underfloor heating. The toiletries were a bit basic - no shower cap and the small bottle of shower gel was not replaced on the second day. However, towels were... More
