    A tired hotel

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Highly recommend!

    We were greeted by a very friendly, smiley receptionist who upgraded us to a sea view room at no extra charge as it was later in the day. The room was not huge, but very clean and had everything we needed. The bathroom was extremely narrow but we managed as we were only there for a couple of nights. The view made it all worthwhile. There was entertainment both nights of our stay with a great atmosphere (the coach party staying were a jolly lot). Breakfast was great, waiters friendly and efficient. Overall we had a great couple of nights stay and would definitely return.

    Hotel? There are very many much better B&B's

    Just about everything that could be bad was bad. This includes absolutely everything except the breakfast and a kind and understanding woman, the morning receptionist. I had booked for four nights, I would have left the first night but arrived too late to find an alternative. Got up at 5.30 am because the bed was so uncomfortable and talked for a while with the pleasant night porter whilst sitting in the reception area, waiting for the receptionist to arrive at about 8.00 am or thereabouts. I had my breakfast which opened at 8.30 am. Then checked out of this terrible hotel and found a much better and proper alternative.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Good location and pleasant staff is about the only nice things I can say! The room was small, outdated, poorly furnished, no bedside lights...the word 'grim' springs to mind. There is something very disconcerting about using a tiny tatty bathroom and seeing previous occupants hairs on the floor...yuk! The toilet leaked, thankfully it looked like clean water but the room was so small we couldn't inspect it that closely! Also the ball clock in the cistern did not shut off fully, gallons of water being wasted. The one clock hanging on the wall stopped at 5 o'clock so long ago that the battery in the back was corroded in place. The wardrobe door hinge had dropped so much you couldn't close the door. There were no hooks to hang coats, just two mismatched dining chairs to put your bags, clothes and coats on... We booked over 6 months beforehand and specifically requested a sea view, didn't get one! When questioned, the reception staff told us that group bookings take precedence over individuals, shame we weren't advised that when we booked! On the plus side the bed was very firm, which suited us (others might struggle) and the linen was clean. We visit Eastbourne to see friends 3-4 times a year, this is most definitely a hotel we will not return to.

    Old hotel in need of some care.

    We are quite easily pleased and was basically just looking for a sea view without paying the earth. We got exactly that. Woke up to a beautiful sunny morning overlooking the sea, stunning view of Eastbourne promenade! Hotel requires an overhaul and some love and attention, but for £56 a night, you get what you pay for.

    good hotel for the cost

    Good location near the bandstand, hotel a little shabby, but still better than a lot of them in the area, couldn't fault the staff, they were all very happy, helpful and polite.
