Very disappointed from the moment we arrived. The member of staff that greeted us was too busy on her phone and we seemed to be nuisance. When we did get into our room it very small. There was no wardrobe and the en-suite was obviously what should have been the wardrobe with no where to hang wet towels! After not...

We recently stayed at the Strand Hotel on a Turkey and Tinsel coach holiday, we had read the reviews on trip advisor and didn't really know what to expect. The hotel is quite old but our room was spotlessly clean and in spite of heating notworking an electric heater was provided which was perfectly adequate. The breakfast was excellent self...

Stayed for a Saturday night dinner bed and breakfast. The hotel is very old and in desperate need of complete overhaul although kept very clean. The bar looks like it has had a make over but everything else is just sad. The room, small but functional and clean. Warm and comfy bed. Dinner terrible. Basically a microwave meal. Breakfast better...

Dear Liz R Thank you for the review. It is nice to note that you found the hotel and room to be clean and comfortable, and the staff to be lovely and courteous. The hotel is truly very old but as you can see from other reviews it has been revamped to a large extent. I am sorry to read...

We have stayed in a number of Hotels in Eastbourne of various star ratings, but this was the worst. We accept that this is a budget Hotel & in need of some TLC, but on finding my bed uncomfortable, I pulled back the sheet to find no mattress cover & a 4" wide tear across the width of the very...

I got a big discount on this hotel courtesy of a well-known booking website. It is located on the seafront and within site of the pier. My room was at the back and had a scruffy carpet and a bad view onto a roof, but that aside, the television was good, the shower good and the linen excellent. The bed...

I have now stayed at the Strand on a number of occasions, and have seen it evolve into a very respectable budget hotel. The room was clean and warm, and the bed was comfortable. There is plenty of space for my things, and a good supply of tea, coffee and sugar. The staff are friendly and helpful. I will definitely...
