I stayed on a 3 night’s bed breakfast and evening meal break from 19/07/2013 to 22/7/2013 at the Burlington in Eastbourne which is one of two hotels in Eastbourne owned and run by the Shearings Holiday group, (Bay Hotels and Coast and Country Hotels). There is a choice of self drive or coach transport and you can choose B+B + evening meal or just B+B. I chose to drive from the north of England to Eastbourne and included a two night stop on the way.
The Burlington boasts over 160 rooms and is a grade 2 listed building, it is a well maintained, smart, and impressive looking, very comfortable hotel situated on the promenade’s Grand Parade just a few meters away from Eastbourne’s fine Pier. If you are fortunate to get a sea view room on the top floor then you will wake up to stunning views. The hotel serves good food in a pleasant environment and the meals are varied and the portions are more than adequate. The staff are always helpful and will try to cater to your dietary requirements, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are comfortable, clean and appear to be well maintained, mine had obviously just been re decorated. When booking I chose an upgrade to a sea view which was a very pleasant airy room overlooking the pier. I have stayed at many of the Shearings Hotels ranging from north Yorkshire to the south coast and all have proved to be good value for money and have always provided a good holiday in a nice hotel without breaking the bank. As in all things some are better than others I can safely say this is certainly up there with the better ones. Shearings cater mainly for the more mature population so their hotels are always relaxing; many of their hotels have entertainment in the evening.
Eastbourne is a popular resort and is well kept with very beautifully laid out carpet garden features along the front next to the beach, I was there several years ago and it has not changed its delightful character even in today’s cutbacks.
Overall the Burlington is a very nice hotel with good staff and is obviously well managed. In my opinion it is good value for money in a great location and I would not hesitate to recommend it, I wish it was nearer to me.
