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

Really enjoyed my stay at this welcoming hotel with my boyfriend. The staff were friendly and very accommodating, the hotel had a timeless feel and a cosy atmosphere. The only fault I could mention is that you could sometimes hear the doors being opened and closed from the other guests however the overall experience was enjoyable and I would certainly... More

The bed was very comfortable. However I had to walk sideways to get past the bed as there is only a tiny gap between bed and wall. The bathroom was huge - perhaps some of that space could have been incorporated into the bedroom. Breakfast was nice - freshly cooked, although the sausage could have been cooked a bit more.

Rooms very very shabby: dirty bathrooms, manky pipe work, there were bits in our bed sheets - I darent look inside but could feel! Wallpaper hanging off, lampshades filthy. We had a drink in the bar after an awful day at a hospice and were kicked out as the owner wanted to shut the bar. We actually thought he was... More

Went for a mid week break Monday to Thursday. My wife and I were made to feel right at home in this grade 2 listed hotel with lots of period features. We had room 107 which was quite large with a massive four poster bed, two seat sofa and TV also large windows overlooking the sea front and pier, spacious... More
