My second visit to Eastbourne and the Claremont. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Always spotlessly clean, staff were lovely, food excellent, good entertainment. Was very good first visit but would say even better this time.

The hotel is clean but very old and tired. The dining room is well organised but you were rushed through meals. The room we had looked out to brick wall and was quite noisy in the evenings and very early mornings. No heating was on in the room. Water was hot and clean towels were provided every day. Had to...

Came here as organiser of a coach trip of 32 people. Without exception, everyone of my party had nothing but praise for the 5 days stay we had at this hotel. An impressive looking hotel, ideally situated on the seafront. Clean spacious bedrooms. A good varied choice of food on the menu. 1st class entertainment every night. And finally, management...

“Paid extra for Seaview. Double aspect room, large room with dressing area and bathroom tucked away, ideal as I was sharing a room as all single rooms were taken. ”

“I think if all rooms had walk in showers it would be a bonus. It wasn't a problem for us but if older and a bit unsteady showers over baths can be a problem. Our room was very spacious and light loved it.”
