If your room looks over the Toby carvery, you will encounter some noise late into the evening.The outside of the lodge had not been cleaned for some time, or it looked like it.

Avoid avoid avoid. Had no sleep due to party in room above me which continued till 4.30 am. Complained to reception who were rude and said there was nothing they could do. So don't bother if you want staff who are remotely concerned, very rude. Weekend totally ruined.

A little tired in parts but warm, clean and functional which for the price offers great value. Very friendly welcome, good location for business use in the local vicinity. Plenty of parking, didn't have breakfast at pub next door due to early start but it is conveniently located 1 minute from the hotel

I recently stayed in this property for a couple of nights and the staff could not have been more helpful. The room was clean and comfortable and the shower was lovely and powerful.

Good sized basic room, ideal for overnighter on the way to Newhaven ferry. Reception is staffed 24/7 which is useful if you arrive late or gave an early start. No food as such, but various options available locally. Recommended though above average price. £74

We live in worcestershire and have family in eastbourne. We have stayed in this hotel before and have never been disappointed. The rooms are absolutely clean and spotless and staff are always very polite and helpful. This is always our first choice when visiting the area.

Room comfortable. No drawer space for clothes,. We only stayed for 2 nights, but if you were staying longer it could be an issue. Could have done with a couple of plastic beakers in the bathroom. Wheelchair access to ground floor only. No lift to other floors.
