The hotel was on the sea front in a very nice location and the owners were very helpful, however the hotel was very run down and like something from the 1960's. I was there for the weekend for my cousins wedding and didn't realise that it clashed with the Airshow so getting a room was very difficult and this hotel...

Many thanks for your review, and pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Of course, if you find any cleanliness problems with the building please do report to reception at the time, so that it can be addressed - deep cleaning does occur on a rotational basis, so all rooms and public areas should be to a certain standard....

The hotel was clean throughout. We were greeted by Jerome and he was very helpful. The room was comfortable. Breakfast was good value although service at breakfast was a little disappointing. The girls serving breakfast were great. However we observed Carol greeting returning guests but felt that we were not as important to the business this being our first visit....

Thank you for your positive comments and of course your business is important to us. We do get to know some of our guests very well indeed and often there is more interaction because of this....we very much hope to make your acquaintance once again in the future should you visit Eastbourne another time.

Just had a week in Eastbourne at this hotel. The hotel is located on the sea front so excellent position 5 min. Walk from pier and 10-15 mins from shopping centres. The proprietors and family were very helpful and professional in running the hotel. They are working hard on upgrading this 30 bedroom hotel, it is an old building with...

Glad you had a comfortable stay and enjoyed breakfast with us. Yes we are continually making efforts to upgrade but this takes both time and monetary investment. We hope to see you back here again one day.

Walking through the door was a time warp back to the 1950s, judging by the awful carpet. Worse was to come upon arrival in the room. It was pokey and not fit for purpose. The window frames were dirty cracked with ingrained dirt and cobwebs...the skirtingboards faired no better. The bathroom was shabby complete with ingrained limescale, peeling wallpaper.The mirror...

There is really no answer to all of this other than to ask why you did not talk to us at the time of your stay about your concerns rather than viciously criticise us after departing.

I got off a ship, in Southhampton, took a train up to Eastbourne. It was the best 10 days, I've had in 30 years. Jerome and Carol, the Owners guided me nicely thru the traditional cultural habits of Britain. I do have to say, I was a pretty dumb American. I had a wonderful time in my 10 days, I...

This place is another reason why the UK's seaside hotels get a bad name; nothing but take take take and no investment into the business to make it a more comfortable and clean place to stay. They are letting themselves down and bringing down other much better establishments in the town with their terrible attitude towards visitors to the town....

Dear Mr T, Once again, many thanks for your comments, although why you feel the need to leave the same disparaging review on multiple sites is beyond me, as I am still not aware what we have done that displeased you so much. As you know from previous discussions, your booking should not have been sent through to us as...
