“Had a pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

When reading the reviews I was apprehensive about my stay here but when I arrived the room was bright and airy and had wonderful high ceilings which made the room feel bigger, the bed was very comfy but creaky and the walls weren't paper thin but you could hear people chatting in the next room. The bathroom was clean and had just enough space, had just been fitted with a new power shower which was great! I stayed in room 105 with a sea view and to be honest you could barely hear the road noise. Overall was a very good stay for my partner and I, can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there.

Room Tip: Room 105 is a great room!

Eastbourn itself is a very nice beach city,and pier is attration of the city.We stayed in Pier Hotel on 7th and 8th August 2013.We were a group of 8 elders and 2 children.The hotel provided 3 double rooms,with 2of them were sea view. Breathtaking view of illuminated pier in the night from the room was worth.With free breakfast (reasonably good menu)tariff was very reasonable.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are very good.

Located opposite the Pier in Eastbourne, the hotel sadly is run down and in desperate need of refurbishment or even better - a rebuild! We were at the front of the hotel directly above the noisy bar so we requested a move. Given the move to the upper floor, the small room was tired and grubby. The floor was sloping and although the noise from the bar was less, the rowdiness from the youths opposite by the pier was unfortunate. The police were present for several hours into the night! The breakfast was ok but certainly nothing special. Will certainly not be returning!

Arrived for the Air show on Thursday 15th August., and left on Monday 18th. The Pier is under New Management and its clear they had been completely pushed into the deep end by the previous Management. Bookings, not adhered to by previous owners. However, Cath and Bill really appeased the situation and made it their mission to ensure our stay was as warm, friendly and as accommodating as possible. We were guaranteed an amazing vantage point view in their conservatory, and were given one of the cream teas (replaced by a bottle of complimentary wine)!! I have to say Cath’s cream teas will now go down as one of the best cream tea’s we have ever had. Breakfast was very good and very well portioned. The lift was out of service but we made jest of it and even lost a few pounds!!! Rooms were lovely and clean with en suite. Pillows resembled wafers but this again was boosted by a few more! Have already booked again for next year, and wish Cath, Bill, The Boys and Gemma all the best. Can’t wait to see you again!!! Jen & Em xxx

This hotel is in a lovely position right opposite the pier and sea front. The staff are really friendly and helpful.....but.......
The hotel really needs a visit from the hotel inspector ...
The decor is in need of help, the paint and paper need repairing.
Breakfast was enough to set you up for the day but not fantastic.
We stayed two nights for the Airborne show, our first night was in a sea view room, beautiful to look out but beware that there is some noise late at night as people leave the pier. Our second night was in a back room, the bathroom was bigger but the window did not stay open and it was warm, the view was not so pleasant.
Overall the hotel is friendly, very central and reasonably priced, the room was clean and the bed comfy. I would use this hotel again.

Room Tip: Choose a rear room if you are a light sleeper but the sea view is wonderful if noisy in a sea view r...

Have just returned from a very pleasant stay at this hotel. Ok yes its old and in need of refurbishment but the new manager is doing an amazing job here. We had a lovely sea view in a pleasant clean room. Breakfast could be better organised with regard to glasses for juice and tables could have been cleared a little quicker. Would return here again as to be honest we got what we paid for which was value for money.

I was worried about coming here after reading the reviews but I can honestly say it was great. Staff very friendly, rooms are clean, and had a lovely full English in the morning. Only down side we could not get the tv to work but that's not a big issue. Great value. Highly recommend this thanks :)
