There seems to be mixed reviews on Tripadvisor, so let me give you my honest opinion. If you want a fancy boutique hotel with bells and whistles then this is not the place for you. However, if you accept this is a budget hotel you will be pleasantly surprised. I have stayed in a few and would say this is...

I fetched up in this hotel having lost my doorkey in the cinema. Its position on Eastbourne seafront is excellent - in the morning the view from my room was beautiful. Otherwise it was grim. No food could be made available. There was no tea tray in the room. No fridge. The washbasin in the bathroom was about 6 inches...

Me & my husband wanted a clean & cheap hotel for a 2 night stay. We found the hotel staff very friendly, the hotel clean & not to far away from the town etc I loved the big fluffy curtains in our room, I don't think they would be as nice in the Summer on a warm day/evening! The only...

Excellent service on the sea front and clean. Decor is based around a 60's theme with faux fur curtains. Beds surprisingly comfortable. Breakfast was ok. No glutten free. Cooked breakfast an extra £3.50 which we thought excellent value. Have stayed before and will stay again but if you are looking for a romantic luxury break this is not for you.

Spent a long weekend with friends last August and has been an awful experience. During the booking we received the offer for room with view and room with bath instead of shower and we accepted both offers. My room's view was on the window of the building next to the hotel and the other room with bath, barely had a...

We were there for one night so was not to worried about the small room on the 3rd floor. It was clean and sparse, this seems to be the trend these days, toilet room was a wet room but there was no where to put your sponge bag. The staff however were very good and the big breakfast was very...

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...

Booked one extra night at the big sleep to extend our honeymoon for a day. Went from a beautiful spacious suite to a khazi of a room which they called a standard double. Practically a bedsit, noisy and depressing . We could hear our neighbours snoring next door and could hear the people opposites music late into the night and...
