“We have stayed 3 times in a year”
Reviewed April 20, 2011

We have stayed 3 times in a year to visit relatives in the town. In summer the older rooms at the front were unbearably hot especially on the first night (no aircon), so ask the hotel to open windows ahead of your check-in to cool the room down. My partner stayed in spring in a room at the back and again too hot from the heating. Stayed in a newer room in December and the temperature was fine! The double rooms are a good size. The bedrooms are a bit faded at this point, although the reception rooms are in much better shape. Say hello to the lovely Italian waiter but avoid Mrs Grumpy of Scotland at the front desk. Will no doubt stay again, if somewhat reluctantly. Really should try somewhere else, but the devil you know is better than the devil you dont. Walking distance from rail station and town centre, and, of course, its on the front.

Room Tip: A room in winter is the best room. Hot in summer.

Concerned when I read the recent reviews but our sea view room, though not large, was adequate and clean, The staff were friendly and helpful. Bottled water as well as tea/coffee was provided as were lots of "goodies" in the bathroom which were replaced every day. Breakfast was fine but our only evening meal was a little overpriced. However, there are a number of other restaurants within easy walking distance, so no problem. Didn't try the spa so can't comment.

The room was dirty, sheets torn, not the one viewed and booked; altogether a disaster! A gluten free tea had been ordered and needed seeing to be believed and as for the breakfast, you would not have served it to an animal. Any requests for help were met with indifference to say the least.

We are. Frilly young couple that needed a few days rest away. Even though estbourne is quiet it suited our needs. Got a fantastic deal on the hotel for three nights and they were good. Hotel was apologetic we couldn't upgrade to sea view as they were full but the service was good, the breakfast nice and fresh and the cleanliness outstanding which is a big consideration for me. Would stay again!

Arranged my Grandmother's funeral reception here and was very disappointed with the service and attention on the day. Room was not clean, windows dirty and overall appearance very dated. There was no signage as promised for the guests on arrival. No service in the room, had to send my kids down to reception to get some service as the sugar and milk had run out. Overall very dissatisfied with the hotel, especially on a day of mourning.
