We were very glad to hear when the Royal re-opened as we had missed our visit earlier this year due to lockdown. There are plenty of good COVID secure measures in place, and we felt very safe during our stay. Guests can now have their breakfasts delivered to their rooms, left outside the door, and room cleaning is on request. The Royal is spotless as always, and we were even told that rooms are left empty for 2-4 days between guests. My most favorite thing is the sea view from our room, and that hasn't changed at all! Lovely fresh sea breeze wafting in and the sound of the waves and seagulls, you can't beat it. Most of the shops and pubs in the area are now open, with social distancing in place as expected, and so we enjoyed our relaxing break as always. We walked up to Beachy Head one day - glorious! Highly recommended.

Excellent B&B!! dog friendly. we went with my Golden Retriever and could not be happier. The sea views were stunning and the small space with table and chairs to enjoy breakfast or evening drinks were great. Eddie was also super helpful! I would definitely come back again.

We had a wonderful break in the Royal Hotel. It advertises that it is dog-friendly and it definitely is. The owner Eddie went out of his way to make our 11 month old malti-poo Teddy feel welcome on his first holiday. He was full of good advice about good walks and which restaurants and pubs were dog friendly and the offer of the later checkout was much appreciated. We will be back!

On holiday in Eastbourne very glad we found this hotel on seafront near pier. Good value for money the host was extremely helpful and friendly to us and recommended the best sights to see and local restaurants. Breakfast was spectacular and our room looked out to the ocean. Everything was clean and we enjoyed meeting Boris. Our friends are going to stay here next month, we liked the cosy atmosphere and real coffee, not instant! Thank you.
