We are a family run hotel with an excellent location on the seafront of Eastbourne looking across the bay towards the Pier. We are only a short walk to the pier, town and amenities. There is a bus stop directly opposite the hotel with services running along the coast and into town. We have a thriving Lunch Club with top class speakers; regular Sunday Lunches with Jazz, Cabaret Dinners, and a Gourmet Club. We are the perfect hotel for any occasion whether it be just a lunch or staying with us in one of our excellent bedrooms.

My husband and I have just returned from this lovely seafront Hotel and enjoyed our stay very much. We paid the extra for an executive sea view room and was given the Amberly room which had an enormous queen size bed and was very comfortable. Large walk in shower, tea, coffee and biscuits replenished every day as well as bottles of water. Reception staff were very good at responding to my pre-arrival emails. I reserved a car park space which costs £9 a day and located at the back of the hotel which we thought was very reasonable.
Breakfast was served looking out on the sea and was freshly prepared with excellent service. Again Dinner was very good and our waiters Zbignieu and Lukasz were friendly and very knowledgeable about the various wines on the menu.
We were served a glass of Champagne each and a lovely Birthday cake on our 1st night which I thought was a lovely touch in recognition of my birthday.
We met Neil the owner who was often seen around the hotel welcoming guests.
Overall, a relaxing break with excellent service throughout. Would happily return and might do just that for Christmas 2020.

We booked this hotel reasonably late as we had realised we had booked another hotel in Norfolk which was a dog Friendly hotel not good for an asthmatic!
We like Eastbourne so decided on a Superior sea view room at the Langham hotel for 4 nights.
We absolutely loved this hotel! Our lovely beautifully decorated room had a very large bed and beautiful view of the sea. The room was spotless with dressing gowns and slippers and wonderful fluffy towels and face cloths that were changed every day. There were shower gels, body lotion and shampoo of very good quality.
Breakfasts were really good with so many choices that you wouldn’t go away hungry! We ate in the restaurant at night where there is a fixed price for two or three courses. We didn’t have a bad meal every one was beautifully cooked and tasty. My only disappointment was that I had read that the menu was changed daily and it wasn’t. Staff did explain that due to COVID and restricted numbers of guests it wasn’t was financially viable to keep changing the menu at this point in time. The chef was very kind and cooked us two bits of fish without the standard batter! We also ate in the bar for lunch which was also very good
All the staff were really good - always pleasant and attentive at all times but particularly Migel who served us quite a bit and also cycled down to open the car parking venue for us a couple of times
There were strict rules about wearing masks in public areas and most residents complied and all staff wore masks or visors. Staff did ask people to comply with the mask rule but we felt they should be a bit stricter with those that didn’t.
We were very happy with our stay and are eager to return!

Excellent visit. We had booked for three nights Wednesday to Saturday and requested a sea view room. We had a double superior room which was just lovely. The views were amazing right across the road from the beach with the pier away to right.
We ate at the hotel every night. The menu was the same for three nights but the choice was good and portion sizes were large. The food was nicely cooked and the views from the restaurant conservatory were stunning. Book early if you want to eat in the conservatory. Our room had a super king size bed which was very comfortable and the en-suite was small but functional. The hotel was very clean with plenty of staff on hand for any queries you may have. The hotel has a one way entrance and exit to comply with social distancing which they seem to take very seriously. All waiting staff and house keeping staff wore masks, there were plenty of sanitizers located around the hotel.parking spaces are available right across the road but you do need to pay for parking. We would certainly return to this hotel and would have no problem recommending it to others. Thoroughly good stay.

I booked a sea view single room and was pleased with the result - on the first floor with access to a small balcony it was impossible to fault it. The restaurant is very good although I think they could do with a special of the night, possibly some pasta variation, because after five nights had eaten my way through it and do not think a burger should have any place in a menu. That said a couple of the dishes were new and delicious. It is a bit of a trek in to town but the sun shone even if the wind blew rather strongly. The staff were splendid, especially the waiting staff who seemed to work alarmingly long hours. The Covid arrangements were good - masks in public areas but once you sat down to eat or were in the bar you could take them off and I liked the little sachet of sanitiser and tissues on the dressing table. I think Eastbourne needs a kick up the backside in terms of wanting tourists to come but that is no fault of the hotel - although the hoteliers' association ought to have the clout to see the town tourist set up does what needs to be done. It was a five day escape from locked down London and I could not have spent it in more congenial surrounding.

We stayed Saturday 4th July 2020 which was the first date that the hotel was able to accept guests since lockdown restrictions were lifted.

We have stayed at the hotel many times before so we knew there was high standards already in place. We were delighted to be able to check in early and the owner Neil was there to welcome all guests which was a lovely personal touch.

There is protective screens up in reception area, all staff wearing gloves and PPE in all areas of the hotel at all times. Wanted to reassure anyone reading this how safe we felt the whole time we were at the hotel and dinning areas. The one way system to enter / exit the hotel meant you never felt too close to other guests enjoying the hotel at the same time.

We had room 112 which had a lovely 4 poster bed and beautiful sea view.

A beautiful hotel, amazing attentive staff and a wonderful place to stay. Highly recommend as a post lockdown getaway.

So ive stayed here before and had a good experience booked again as my mother and i had tickets to a play at the congress theatre.Upon booking in both our rooms were nice clean my bathroom looked new.We had a drink from the bar and sat outside in the sun very nice ,then we went to our rooms ready to go out in the evening we asked reception to book us a taxi to a local italian restaurant play was great and upon returning to the hotel we had a drink at the bar lounge which was nice it was chilled and soft music playing. upon retiring to my room and settling down for the night there was a lot of noise which i then realised my room was next to the lift which kept up and down until 1am and kept me awake and the morning woke me at 7am Breakfast was good english breakfast plus we had toast and jam when we checked out i told guy at reception and he apologised and said if we booked again to request quiet rooms so apart from my room location it was a good stay

Stayed at the Langham for 2 nights as had a meeting organised in Brighton.
The hotel are superb in the way they are ensuring they are Covid safe, hand sanitizer everywhere, one way system in place, limeted use of lift, social distancing guidelines etc. ...... majority of guests adhered to the rules, some just could not be bothered. Absolutely no fault of the hotel, all staff work incredibly hard and efficiently to ensure you enjoy your stay.
I had a single, sea view room, although tiny, perfectly adequate and met my needs in full.
Hotel is spotlessly clean throughout and high standards are set. This also applies to the restaurant, enjoyed my piping hot breakfast on both days. I had a bar meal on my first night, very well presented and steak cooked accordingly to my request . 2nd evening was my birthday so booked in at the restaurant, really is well worth it, I had 2 courses, big portions so felt a little full after my starter and the lovely warm bread rolls. I did manage to eat my main and very tasty it was too!
Spent my birthday on Sunday walking the beachfront, really nice, quiet area to watch the world go by. I did not go past the pier area as had been told it can get busy up there as nearer the shops and I just would not have felt safe. Also totally enjoyed a scone with cream and jam on the front of the hotel. Oh and a lovely refreshing cold beer, again watching the world go by.
There are a few parking spaces at the hotel but unfortunately all were booked when I enquired. You can park on a side street for free but after a long journey, last thing I want to do is cruise the streets for somewhere to park. Took the option of using the subsidised parking about 5 mins away from the hotel, really is worth it at £8 per night. Totally secure and a manger has to meet you at the carpark to allow you in and out.
I would definitely recommend the Langham to all those needing s break in a warm and friendly environment where the staff work hard to ensure your stay is as good as it can be in these challenging times we are all faced with!

We booked a midwinter break at the Langham which turned out to be quite exceptional both in standard and value. We enjoyed a ‘superior’ room on the second floor with a bay window giving us a great view of the front and the sea. The room had clearly been newly refurbished and this had been done to a very high standard with all the requirements we could have needed, including a responsive control for the heating. Included in our deal was an excellent evening dinner giving us good choices over the three courses. The menu also varied from day to day. The first and third courses in particular were imaginative and well presented. Breakfast was served at the table which meant that choices, which were generous, had to be made before starting to eat. Although this also meant that you couldn’t ‘pig out’ at the buffet many hotels provide (and finish off the last pains au chocolat), this wasn’t really a problem for us and we enjoyed a good, varied, well prepared breakfast both days. I should add that those serving us, both at dinner and breakfast, were respectful and efficient, but also friendly. In fact all the hotel staff had a friendly manner. We have stayed in many hotels in England (not least Eastbourne) and abroad, and I struggle to think of a better experience than this.

Hotel didn’t have any parking spaces free, but had a loading bay directly outside and had made arrangements with the local TA Centre for secure parking only 300m or so away which was appreciated.

Our room was not ready when we arrived, but the staff were very friendly and took our bags into storage whilst we went into town.

On our return, we ordered some extra pillows, which again was no problem and also reported a faulty room safe. One of the staff promptly addressed the issue which was resolved with a fresh set of batteries. Apologies were given and offers of using the hotel safe if the issue was not resolved to our satisfaction.

We went to the bar and appreciating the table service only due to COVID, had to wait almost 25 mins for anyone to appear and see if we wanted a drink. There was nobody in the bar at all and lots of people wanting to be served. Seemed to be a shortage of staff for some reason. (Quite frustrating). Table service even once staff arrived was poor and I had to walk to the bar to ask for additional drinks.

Our room, whilst very small, had a lovely sea view and the sound of the crashing waves all night, with the open sash windows, was soothing and relaxing. The room had a lot of natural light which lifted it. Attention to detail had been made in the room which was freshly decorated to a high standard. The addition of complimentary hand gel and tissues was a nice touch.

We didn’t eat dinner in the restaurant but did have breakfast there. Sadly all the tables in the conservatory had been taken so we had to sit indoors which was a shame. The yoghurts were particularly nice. Same couldn’t be said for the cooked breakfast sadly and the scrambled egg was almost white, insipid and tasted odd. Not good.

We would stay here again, but would again choose not to eat there I think.

We arranged to meet with two friends at the Langham hotel for lunch and drinks. Having been in lockdown for so many weeks I was quite anxious about going out anywhere but felt we should try to move forwards within the governments guidelines. Having made the decision to venture out we all agreed that the Langham was the place we wanted to go meet. Now, I have always been a fan of the Langham, their care of their guests and attention to detail has always been second to none, but I was even more impressed with how they have managed to retain their charm while adhering to the new regulations. As to be expected, the hand sanitiser stations were dotted around, social distancing was made very easy by the arrangement in the bar area, a separate entrance and exit allowed guests to move around without crossing paths and the staff were wearing their PPE. They have introduced table service to prevent gatherings around the bar area and a housekeeper was constantly cleaning frequently used areas, chairs and door handles etc. That said, she went about her duties in a very none intrusive way and I noted she did not spray cleaning products into the air but rather used these with cloths to keep the area clean. It was a joy to be back there. As always, the food was lovely and it was wonderful to see the familiar faces of the staff. The owners Neil and Wendy, took the time to chat with us as did the manager Simon. We even had a sneaky look at the newly decorated restaurant. It looks beautiful and we can’t wait to be dining in there very soon. All in all our return to the Langham was everything we expected and more. Well done guys. See you soon.
