It was such a lovely stay, once again, that it seems almost picky to mention it - but please could you get a better quality coffee from the machines in the breakfast bar. Otherwise, it was the usual great standard all the way round, staff, rooms, food etc.

You ever get bored of going to the view hotel we come every year, my wife loves it, so nice to wake up in the morning open the curtains and watch the sea, while you enjoy a cup of tea in bed. The staff are always pleasant and we have never had any reason to complain we will be back...

My friend had a sea view with a balcony which was lovely. For the same cost I had no balcony and a view of the back of other hotels and a car park/alley way. Food was very good, facilities for business were good with the exception of water on the tables. There was a water fountain in the conference room...

“Seaview if you can.”
  • Sea view towards Eastbourne Bandstand
  • Good sized single with seaview
  • View towards the right
  • View at night towards Bandstand and Pier. Much better when you're there in person.
