We stayed for 3 nights and chose the Pier Hotel as we were on a budget. You really do get what you paid for! The hotel has a premium location opposite the pier, but sadly needs major improvements before I would consider visiting again. The negatives: quite run down, rooms need a good clean. Lift not working, so a lot...

Some would say, you get what you pay for!!! , I've stayed in better for the same price with sea views and breakfast in Eastbourne at this time of the year. It was ok but needs some serious tlc!, this isn't the staff's thought but the owners, wake up and sort it out because this hotel could be so much...

Went to stay here complained about the dirty room was just told "this isn't the grand the room is the room" very disappointed. Not the room as stated in the pictures, hair in the bath, dust all in the bathroom, holes in the towels, bird droppings on the net curtains! Don't go here unless you expect you room unclean!

I can only assume that this man wanted to sleep in this hotel so badly however all the rooms were full. In the morning i spoke to...

I'm sorry but this hotel is very dirty and dated? As soon as I got in the room started to unpack open the draw and there was half a bag of open sweets? Sat on the bed and there on the floor a head band?? Don't think it had been cleaned at all? The last think was the dripping tap...

Great location for visiting Eastbourne and its seafront but the hotel is very tired, has uneven floors everywhere and has very limited and out dated facilities in the rooms and common areas. Couldn't get out quick enough as it was cold too! The bedding appears to be clean, not so sure about the carpet and other furnishings. Needs serious money...

Good old fashioned...

I have stayed here at the Pier Hotel before with my daughter, who actually recommended it to me as she had been there before. The staff have always been very accommodating, extremely friendly and very helpful. I was actually just about to aboard my flight to Gatwick when I was called by the person I was supposed to be staying...

Stayed at this hotel last weekend. The brochure in the room was nothing like the reality. The state of the room was unbelievable, a hole in the wall with wallpaper peeling off it.Whilst using the shower you had to put up with the water alternating between cold and scalding hot. We tried the bar in the evening but moved on...
