This is a traditional sea front hotel in an excellent location. We stayed for 4 nights with an elderly parent for whom we had requested, and received, a sea-view room with a walk-in shower and close to a lift. Check-in was friendly and efficient but for such a large hotel the two very small lifts occasionally struggled to cope. Our...

We could not have picked a nicer place for a weekend break. The hotel is very clean and the staff very helpful. The location was ideal. Just far enough out of the town center to be quiet but near enough so that everything was accessible. The only slight downside for us was that on a warm weekend in September there...

Stayed for 3 nights with a large group of 40 and had an evening meal each night. The food and service was good. The room was large and recently refurbished with an excellent shower. The only negative side is the garage facility that is too small for most modern cars. It is much better to use £1 a day municipal...

I regularly visit this hotel, and have done for nearly 30 years and can concur with all reviews who point out the excellent facilities, restaurant and comfortable lounges. I stayed during a very busy period, but the service was first class: the restaurant was very efficient and professional, and the food excellent. I had the lamb several times because it...

As it was a nice sunny afternoon we decided to go to this hotel for afternoon tea. We had been previously, but as the service was very slow we had not been back for some time.We thought we would try it again, but what a bad mistake!

Friendly and helpful staff. A clean well run hotel in good location. I thought restaurant a tad expensive first of all (£27 for four courses) but, it seems, food and restaurants in Eastbourne can be quite expensive anyway, ie, £13 for fish and chips in Harry Ramsdens. Barfood was good too. Lovely lounges to relax in and entertainment some evenings....
