Ive stayed here a few years ago. This time I took my wife and 2 kids with me for Xmas. The hotel itself is lovely, on the sea front, with helpful friendly staff. We had a seaview room which was much bigger than the standard as we had to have 2 young children in the room with us. The hotel...

Clean room with good facilities in a hotel located right on the sea front. Very good value for money. Our room was quite compact and did not have a sea view but it had everything we needed. We did not eat the hotel.

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...

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...
