When trying to sort through Eastbourne hotel choices, using a combination of Booking.com & Tripadvisor, you still don’t quite know what you will get until you are there and experience it for yourself.

Stayed for a couple of days over Easter and had a very pleasant break. We had one of the newly renovated superior rooms which was fabulous and well worth the extra money. The whole hotel was really clean and the food good. The reception staff were very welcoming and if we return to Eastbourne we will stay here again.

Large room with great bathroom, everywhere very clean. Breakfast with a wide range of options, lovely location just a minute from the beach and a few streets away from some lovely local restaurants and shops. Would stay again.

Excellent 3 star AA rated Hotel. Nice bar, and lounge. Lift to all three floors. Restaurant was modern and breakfast and evening meals had a big menu plus specials. The food was very good and all the staff attentive. Good area and quiet. Near the sea front and ten minutes from main shops.

we had heard from others on our coach trip that this was a good hotel and we were not disappointed . After a wonderful four night stay , it exceeded our expectations. The room was very well equipped and spotlessly clean, as was the whole hotel. The staff were all extremely pleasant and added to the holiday experience. The breakfast...

It has been a while since we visited this hotel and as we enjoyed it last time, thought it was time to return. We got a very warm welcome from so many of the staff, it was like coming home. The room allocated to us was fine, the bathroom has been recently updated and is really modern. The hotel is...
