A lovely spacious room with great view of the sea front. Buffet breakfast was excellent. I would happily stay here again. Excellently situated for a morning stroll on the beach and about 10 minutes walk from the town centre.

I wish there had been more than two tea bags and some bottled water. The pillows were so hard that we went out and purchased two of our own. Otherwise all was OK. Very clean and a nice big room with excellent lighting.

Stayed at The View Hotel a few times, never had any complaints. Sea view room is worth a bit extra to wake up and see the sea! Breakfast is good, rooms are a good size and the bed is huge! Lovely clean hotel with friendly staff

A return visit to The View, nice comfortable room and a sea view this time. Lovely breakfast with lots of choices. The only downside we found was with the hotel bar. Very young children were running around and making quite a bit of noise which was ok early evening but were still there when we returned at 9.30/10pm. Maybe there...

The rooms, hotel and staff were all ok. Would quite hapily stay again. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Views from the room were stunning and the sea air first thing in the morning from the balcony were unbeatable.

An excellent hotel. Well worth paying a little extra for a Sea View room with a balcony so you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Buffet dinner and breakfast excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff

I liked this hotel and I will probably go back if I visit Eastbourne again. Bear in mind that in order to have seaside views you need to pay an extra £20 a night. I did not have those views but, on the other hand, the room was bigger in comparison to the ones at the front of the hotel,...

Well, where to start! The View Hotel is the perfect wedding venue- amazing location & views, fabulous staff who cannot do enough for you, beautiful food and a fantastic atmosphere- our wedding day was an absolute dream, not one single issue. I cannot recommend The View highly enough, we had a large amount of family members staying at the hotel...

Greatly enjoyed our stay just disappointed that tea/coffee is no longer served at the table because there were queues and confusion at the drinks station. Views and rooms were wonderful and would recommend the hotel to friends and family.
