The missus and myself have just returned from the Langham having just spent 5 days there on a half board basis, coach holiday. (11th-15th August 2014).
Although we had a room at the back of the hotel, missing out on a sea view, this wasn't an issue as we spent very little time there. The room itself was spotless and tastefully decorated, and the towels and bedding, (which were changed regularly), were of high quality.
A lot of time and money has clearly been spent on the hotel and the building has been decorated very tastefully throughout.
The food was consistently good with a choice to cover all tastes, and they appeared to cater very well for a lady in our party who had specific dietary needs.
The service was superb, friendly, efficient and professional, throughout the hotel and both myself and the fun prevention officer couldn't fault a thing throughout our stay.
One point which is especially noteworthy, is that one of our coach party had lost his ring at some point during our visit and only realised whilst our coach was driving home. Fortunately one of the staff had found it and handed it in. I consider actions such as this deserve to illustrate the hotel and the staff in a very positive light.
The entertainment at night consisted of a organist/singer, which appealed to the older members of our party but which a younger audience could consider a bit pedestrian. There was also a quiz and bingo in the downstairs bar.
Most of the clientele in the hotel were in the older age bracket, so if you're a young couple thinking of staying there you may want to take this into consideration.
The hotel is at the opposite end of the promenade from where the theatres and better shops are, however you can easily reach them by use of the regular buses or just take a leisurely 20 - 30 minute stroll.
Nearby places worth visiting are Arundel, Tunbridge Wells and Alfriston, ( a beautiful little hamlet). We also visited Bognor Regis and all I can say is that I fully endorse the person's opinon of the place when asked about it and he replied,"B****r Bognor!"
There are some beautiful walks and cycle rides to be had on the South Downs.
Brighton and Hastings are also in easy driving distance but as we didn't get the chance to visit either town I can't offer an opinion.
Whilst there we also watched the "Airbourne" show. Absolutely fantastic! If you're thinking of going to Eastbourne next year make sure you go when this show is on.
In conclusion, many thanks to all those concerned with the Langham hotel for an excellent holiday.
