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.

Efficient well run hotel. Polite and eager to please staff. Wide selection of dishes to be found on the dinner menu. Food very good. Comfortable seating throughout the lounges. Nicely positioned for the Congress Theatre, Winter Garden and Devonshire Theatre and just around the corner from the sea front. All in all a good hotel and value for money.

Having got lost on the seafront, the receptionist with excellent clarity guided us to the Hotel, our first impressions were the same as the day we left, every thing was first class, starting with the price.

A lovely clean hotel. Meals loverly with plenty of choice from the varied menu. Hotel staff very obliging and pleasant. Standards excellent. Our room on the side of the hotel small but adequate and quiet on the 1st floor. Entertainment for three nights of our stay in the small bar area. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.
