The dinners in the Devonshire Restaurant are excellent, with a good choice, well presented and plentiful, with superb service from a friendly staff.

This hotel is, as a friend of ours who visits regularly puts it, of its time! The public rooms (and indeed the bedrooms that we saw) are quite dated, and a makeover is probably due. Having said that, our bedroom was bigger and more comfortable than one we had in the Grand Hotel next-door on our last visit to Eastbourne...

We stayed in a large family room to the rear (so large that we had two bathrooms) which was very pleasant; although, despite a lift, we still had to drag a pushchair and two kids up and down a flight of stairs.
