Eastbourne is a ghost town, and upon walking toward the big sleep hotel down one of it's ghost like streets, I assumed it would be a normal bustling hotel. When I got there with my pathetic luggage of 2 shirts and 1 pair of socks. And a hat. I was struck by the fact that no one was inside. Including...

I had a great time treating my 2 young nephews to a seaside break. The hotel was as I hoped and expected - great studio room (sleeps up to 6 - 1 double bed & 2 sets of bunk beds). The boys loved the games room and I enjoyed the styling of the lounge area - vintage / retro. A...

Very good budget accommodation. Helpful staff. Spacious room, with comfy bed, with curtains that keep out the light.Continental breakfast was plenty for me. All in all a good stay. Pity there's only three in the UK.

Good location and convenient parking. Our room was on the top floor at the front and had a great view of the sea. Modern, clean and comfortable bed. Breakfast of continental included in price which had a good selection, a cooked breakfast for reasonable price available which looked good. Would recommend this quirky hotel and would stay again.
