After visiting this hotel during Xmas with all its festivities we decided to stay in August. Was disappointed there was no entertainment on. I didn't expect it to be the same as xmas bit we'd only just been sating in Bournemouth where they had a singer on most nights. I knew the hotel was full so I asked at reception...

Easy check in. Booked executive double which was very good size wise and lovely sea view. Bathroom had bath with shower and a separate shower. Room was very warm but was able to open all the windows nice and wide. Duvet was a bit too thick for time of year. Had dinner in bar both nights, food good and reasonable....

Just returned from a Saturday night stay at this hotel. Loved the room at the front with a sea view, so bright and airy and very spacious. Breakfast was good and all the staff very pleasant and helpful. Would definately stay here again when visiting Eastbourne.

Very big hotel with excellent size rooms, good little extras, including toiletries. Comfortable beds. Staff seemed to have all administration in order and understood the needs of their customers. We never had a room overlooking the sea front but I'm sure those who did, were impressed with everything. I would definitely return to the hotel for another stay.

Whilst somewhat out of the resort itself, being about a mile from the pier etc, this hotel is quiet and very pleasant. Impressed with the numerous lounges and service offered. Didn't eat in hotel as thought food somewhat expensive but the beer was priced reasonably. Our room whilst down a small flight of stairs on 2nd floor and at back...

Service was excellent with all staff across the entire hotel being very customer orientated. Reception staff even booked me a parking space in their garage as the air show was on the same weekend. Well done! No problem about us bringing the dog, although there was a £10 charge. Breakfasts were excellent. The room was at the back and actually...

Located a bit further than most of the hotels from the main area, pier and town centre. Staff are friendly and the hotel was busy with more older people. Clean rooms and a very tasty breakfast, I recommend.

Typical Victorian hotel with numerous lounges where you can sit or play games or cards - there is even a pet friendly lounge. We had a double room on the 3rd floor with a sea view, which was spotlessly clean, large enough and had a good en suite. As with all hotels the windows do not open completely but they...

We had a sea-view room which was pleasant enough, however we stayed there during that mini heatwave in August and it was impossible to sleep. The windows were only able to open slightly which didn't help. If windows were able to completely open up it might make it a bit more bearable. The quality of the breakfast was adequate but...
