The hotel is located one row back from the cliffs. 1 minute from a lovely walk along the cliff tops. The hotel is immaculate . The rooms are large with excellent bathroom. The breakfast was freshly prepared from good quality ingredients. The hotel is located 5 km from the channel tunnel. We will certainly use this hotel again when we...

I had a great time at this hotel. It is a beautiful old gem. Some rooms are better than others. I've stayed here four times, this time i got a great room. Some people have left negative reviews of the breakfast, I thought it was pretty good. The set meal dinner was a bit disappointing, but it was ok. The...

The Burlington is one of the tired old hotels on the south coast which have seen better days but will not see them again! Our room was comfortable, the bathroom however was dated. The bar and lounge were mostly dark and empty and did not invite one to sojourn there. Breakfast was ok but overpriced and our one evening meal...

Dear Guests, Thank you for your kind mention regarding our team of staff. I am very surprised by your comments as they do not reflect the vast majority of reviews from our guests regarding the comfort and quality of accommodation as well as service and food served. Please note that our award winning breakfast price is in line with any...

Hotel has a lovely location opposite The Leas and easy 15 minute walk to town centre. There’s a small amount of car parking at the front of hotel but when full we easily found parking on the street and it’s all free. Arrived just before 2pm. Was greeted warmly and check in was smooth. The room looked a little dated...

Staff were very accommodating and the hotel whilst old and a bit worn on the edges worked beautifully and was cosy and offered excellent value for money. Breakfast during the weekend was buffet cold and hot, during the week it's cooked to order, the latter being better quality. Evening meals were cooked on order and excellent plus with a set...

We recently visited the hotel as part of a bus tour. 23 of us were booked for 2 nights bed, breakfast and evening meal. We checked into the hotel very easily, everything was ready for our arrival. We had booked a double room. The room was very tastefully decorated. But consisted of two single beds being pushed together. The room...

We stayed at the Burlington recently before hopping on the Channel Tunnel. The room was lovely and extremely clean, with a very spacious shower and a comfy bed.
