For £43 a night this room was excellent value. Breakfast boxes were available if required but as there was a Toby Carvery 50 yards away we didn't partake. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. A vending machine with drinks and snacks would have been nice.

When checking in the receptionist was friendly, the room it self was clean and bed comfy, would visit again even with a pub bang opposite you wouldn't even know it was there. Parking was easy enough and we could keep an eye on the car from the window, very pleasant

We stayed here for the first time in May. The whole experience was the best experience we have ever had and we will now only stay here when visiting Eastbourne. The check in was easy and the staff here were the politest and most efficient of all the hotels we have tried. Excellent service! Well done Travelodge Willingdon Drove!

Typical Travelodge. Easy and efficient booking and check in. Low cost compared with other hotels in the area. Comfortable and clean. Good wifi. Attached to Toby carvery which is cheap and good value for money. Not much else in the area unless you travel into Eastbourne or go to the Premier Inn down the road.

Stay at alot of hotels through business, this is not going to be one of my regular stops. Too noisy, had to get basin unblocked, missing towels and doors that slam shut. Big room but bed was positioned right against the window with barely enough room to get round. Having said all this Jess on the desk was very helpful...

Upon arrival, I was greeting by a lovely lady named Jess,...

We found the hotel very clean and comfortable, plus had been redecorated since our last stay. In the evening we went to the Toby opposite for a drink at 21.30 and were told we are closed and cannot serve drinks because we are cleaning the kitchen !! This is a regular ploy for this Toby --- we got our drinks....
