Superb hotel with excellent customer service ethos displayed by all the staff, well appointed rooms, and a very capable chef who provides beautiful meals which are well presented. We arrived on the Friday before Christmas Eve and from the moment we arrived we were treated to good food, good service and excellent company.

3 star Tourist hotel, comfortable and welcoming. Lost count of the number of times [always Fri - Sun] we've stayed there! No car park but unrestricted parking on the street - which we've always succeeding in doing. Very convenient for Devonshire Park complex.

Stayed overnight in Eastbourne for a party and stayed at New Wilmington. It was really lovely, nice spacious room for 4 of us. Room was clean and tidy. Staff very friendly. Breakfast was delicious with lots of variety to chose from. Can't find any fault to be honest. Would recommend.
