Ok so. Yes, I realise this is a budget price hotel but. A mass of competition so they need to make a better effort. Rooms are tired and need minor maintenance. ie tighten up door handles, fixtures etc. And a really really deep clean ( I DO NOT appreciate black mould in SHOWER)

What can I say? I travel about the south coast and in all my travels this is the worst hotel we have ever come across. We booked a large room with an extra large bed with sea views. Well the windows were absolutely vile and hardly see out. The images on booking.com are deceiving

The hotel is no frills but very clean, value for money, situated 1 min from the pier 5 min from the town centre, with lots off places to eat, our room was very large and looking out to sea, the hotel provides free vouchers to park outside, had no trouble parking, found we didn't

We stayed for one night, booked via 'Groupon'. A good deal pricewise with £10 extra for a sea view and £10 extra for a late departure (midday instead of 11am). We arrived on a really cold and wet afternoon with torrential rain and everything dark, drab and dreary, including

We stayed at the Shore View hotel three years ago and found it quirky and enjoyable; I described it as a work in progress, as there seemed to be much to carry on with. Alas the progress has stalled, if indeed there was ever an intent to do more with the hotel. There seemed to be

We haven't read the reviews relating to this particular problem, but it is quite common for hotels to take a swipe of a credit card on check-in. We've had this done many times without a problem (same as with car hire). Our advice would be just make sure you keep all records and on check-out confirm that nothing else has been added to your card. If paying cash, then make sure you get the credit card slip back or one that shows cancelled or Zero.

Go to Amy’s cafe round the corner instead. Brilliant little find.

Is there a bar
No but there is a reasonable pub across the road from hotel. Much better than any hotel bar

"Pay the £10 extra for the sea view, well worth it - even with the traffic noise!"
"Sea view rooms on corner at slight extra cost are nice but suffer from traffic noise. A problem if you are a light sleeper."
"If larger person ask for washing option like bath or bigger shower"
"Very good base and really friendly and helpful"
"Go to another hotel in Eastbourne"
