Although our room was a little on the small side it did not detract from well set out way that could service all your needs. We stayed for a ladies weekend and the experience was above what we expected. We are well travelled with numerous hotels and we place this as one of the best.

All the staff were helpful and friendly so difficult to say one stood out beyond another they all stood out! Have stayed at a few Eastbourne hotels on the seafront including 5 star but The View hard to top. The decor public areas and bedrooms all good. The hotel is light with beautiful views of the seafront and good value.

What a wonderful surprise this hotel was. Lovely sized rooms, all recently renovated in a beautiful, tasteful way. Big comfy beds, immaculate bathrooms, sea views, it was all perfect. A very well organised buffet breakfast, with everything constantly replenished and tables cleared, they were like a little catering army, beavering away. It was the nicest hotel we have stayed in...

we try to stay in the view as often as we can, we have tried many other hotels,b&bs etc in eastbourne, but we are drawn back to the view, standard of service and cleanliness is constant. nothing to dislike, a bit pricier than other establishments, but worth the extra, though we do try to look out for special deals when...

An exceptionally enjoyable overnight stay. Very relaxing with friendly staff and pleasing surroundings. Fantastic views from the room ......and with a balcony too ! My single room on the 6th floor was spotlessly clean and immensely comfortable. Would definately stay there again - hopefully next time take in a performance at the truly impressive bandstand just down the road !

Great location, lovely hotel, brilliant price. I had a great view from my room, which I wasn't really expecting as I hadn't particularly booked a sea view room. The staff were all really nice. The room was really well presented and I had no issues with anything. I would definitely stay there again.

I've stayed in several hotels in Eastbourne and this was slightly more expensive than the others but much better. Although it looks rather ugly on the outside it is actually very well designed inside. The room was attractive and comfortable with a great sea view and I woke up feeling well rested. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was...

We attended a dinner dance here on Saturday. Our room on the 5th floor overlooking the back was very good, plenty of storage a comfortable bed and a bright and compact bathroom. The hotel has had a complete refurbishment and everything is of good quality. Ample parking outside the hotel, a permit being supplied on arrival. Lunch in the bar...
