I come to Eastbourne to visit my daughter every other weekend and stay in hotels all over Eastbourne but thought I'd try this place. Very friendly staff, excellent rooms and in a good location and a really good price! My daughter was especially pleased to discover we had sky movies in our room! Will definitely be coming back her again!!

We stayed at the updated Congress Hotel Appartments for 2 nights in Oct 2016. We were very impressed with our room, it was spacious, spotlessly clean and perfect for 2 adults and a child. The room was modern and contemporary with plenty of storage and seating for a family of 3. The building was still being refurbished but we heard... More

We were at this hotel recently. The rooms were clean .The hotel is old and could do with some updating. This you can live with but the food was awful. Packet soup. Burnt offerings and frozen veg. chips etc. A number of people ate out on a number of nights. The only palatable meal was breakfast..

My wife and I took her Mother to this hotel to celebrate her 90th birthday. The hotel could not have done more to make us feel very welcome, and make such a special birthday very memorable. We were put in two adjoining rooms, well furnished and presentable. The evening entertainment was a welcome surprise, and although it was mainly coach... More
