The hotel was friendly, clean and the staff were all helpful. The conference rooms are well laid out and functional. The bedrooms are clean and well equipped. The only problem I had was a noisy ventilator in the bedroom which seemed very noisy at 4 or 5 o'clock in the morning!

The hotel was spotless and quiet and the staff were very friendly and efficient. We had two single rooms, both had some sea view. Beds were very comfortable and everything we needed was in the rooms. The food was absolutely fine and we would definitely stay here again.

The View is outstanding in Eastbourne for the modernity of its rooms and amenities, but the property is showing some signs of needing maintenance. Bring your own shampoo. Lower floors near function room are noisy until late on weekends.
