We only stayed overnight and for this purpose it was excellent. The room was clean and inviting. The bathroom was adequate .The Staff were all friendly and helpful. .Breakfast was between 8-9 a.m. which suited us, but could be a problem if an early start was required. I did not ask if this situation could be overcome

Thought it might be noisy due to the traffic on the prominade. After about 9.30 in the evening became very quiet. Room was clean with Tea and Coffee...

First time to have a weekend in Eastbourne was pleasantly surprised to the standard of service and accommodation. Evening entertainment was Good. The only thing I didn't like was having to choose my evening meal at breakfast. Hotel itself was clean , bedroom comfortable, bathroom and bit small but ok. Would go again.

One of the worst hotels I have been to for feeling welcome. Sad to have stayed there and happy I WILL never stay there again. Please tell your guest where to have breakfast and what areas they are welcome in when you have booked the hotel out to a private function. Having read other reviews I was really looking forward...
