The hotel is situated close to the sea with great views. I booked in at reception an was given the key and told that I had been given a complimentary upgrade to a larger room. This was a pleasant surprise after the terrible journey I had had getting to Eastbourne. The receptionist was helpful, providing information as to where places... More

The continental breakfast (included) was excellent with plenty of cereal choice, pastries, fruit juices, yoghurts, cheese, toast and various teas/coffee. It's £4 extra for a set English breakfast of bacon, sausage, egg, beans, hash brown & half a tomato. The location of the hotel is excellent - very central -next to the seafront & the theatres.

A had a two night stay in this seafront hotel located within walking distance of the town centre, pier, theatres, etc. We had a good size room with attached bathroom which was quiet and had a reasonable sleep. We paid £1 extra for cooked breakfasts which were ok but not exceptional. Car parking is on the street outside or opposite... More

Had a great stay here. My friends and I needed somewhere to stay for a convention and we were delighted with big sleep. It's really hard to find hotel rooms with three single beds and at such affordable prices too. Loved the hotels 60s vibes, lovely and clean, nice staff. Dog friendly and free wifi.

Nothing particularly special about this hotel, and nothing particularly bad either. Good location on the seafront and plenty of on-street parking outside. Décor in bedrooms and corridors a bit tired and in need of a refurb. Many of the rooms on the front and side have sea views. We had room 205 which, judging from the fire escape plan, was... More

Not very impressed, the decor was very old and tired and although it probably looked good when new, the grey fake fur curtains in our room were rather creepy rather than funky.
