The hotel is central to the town centre, and just around the corner from The Royal Hippodrome Theatre. Which was our reason for being in Eastbourne. JEROME was on duty when we arrived early f or book in, but very cheerfully welcomed us and our room was ready. The room was on the third floor with a sea view. It... More

Nice two night place to stay for the Beachy Head marathon, I was able to walk to the start line very easily over at St. Bede's (about a mile and a half, but a very pleasant walk along the seafront). Upgraded to a lovely sea-view room at no extra charge (thank you Jerome!) The location was perfect, right opposite the... More

I have used this well-placed hotel on the seafront many times. The staff are pleasant and many bi/tri-lingual and the service efficient. The prices are very reasonable and each room I have stayed in have been tidy. It is being decorated bit by bit, but as it is a huge hotel this may take some time. There is ample free... More

I stayed here on Friday and Saturday. I was accommodated with an earlier check in time, thank you. I had a seafront facing room which was clean and tidy. There is a bar, ironing facilities and you can use the dining room to eat takeaways if you want. Jerome offered me a packed lunch as i was leaving before breakfast... More

The hotel was on the sea front in a very nice location and the owners were very helpful, however the hotel was very run down and like something from the 1960's. I was there for the weekend for my cousins wedding and didn't realise that it clashed with the Airshow so getting a room was very difficult and this hotel... More

Many thanks for your review, and pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Of course, if you find any cleanliness problems with the building please do report to reception at the time, so that it can be addressed - deep cleaning does occur on a rotational basis, so all rooms and public areas should be to a certain standard....

The hotel was clean throughout. We were greeted by Jerome and he was very helpful. The room was comfortable. Breakfast was good value although service at breakfast was a little disappointing.

Walking through the door was a time warp back to the 1950s, judging by the awful carpet. Worse was to come upon arrival in the room. It was pokey and not fit for purpose. The window frames were dirty cracked with ingrained dirt and cobwebs...the skirtingboards faired no better. The bathroom was shabby complete with ingrained limescale, peeling wallpaper.The mirror...

There is really no answer to all of this other than to ask why you did not talk to us at the time of your stay about your concerns rather than viciously criticise us after departing. More
