We visted my parents in Eastbourne and took our two dogs. Searched for dog friendly hotels and found the Royal Hotel just 5 minutes walk from where my parents live. Having two dogs in the same room was no trouble and there was plenty of space in the room for them. The landlord was very friendly and the hotel was clean and comfortable.

The B&B has been refurbished to a very high standard, high standards prevail everywhere else from toietries in the bathroom to the food offered at breakfast. No traditional english breakfast, which will disappoint some, but at least you'll leave healthier than you otherwise.

I stayed in the Hotel for 3 nights with my dog Basil in Oct 2011. It location is perfect, the views are stunning, the room was beautifully appointed, the en-suite was every bit 5*, the welcome was so very friendly and the service was beyond my expectations and then some! I have raved about it ever since. If you choose to go to the Royal be prepared to be attended too with the greatest of care and kindness. They really know how to do excellence....with much gratitude for a lovely stay. Karen & Basil

We took my elderley Father and his dog Leo to Eastbourne for the weekend in December....we chose this because it was advertised as dog friendly....and boy was it....it was the most perfect place we could have chosen for all of us, we had a fantastic suite of rooms - just perfect for all of us...thanks to Eddie for his great hospitality and friendliness....we hope to go back..

Room Tip: if there are a couple and a single person staying...the ground floor suite is simply perfect.

My husband and I (along with our dog Cadbury) stayed at the Royal for the weekend. It is a wonderful hotel, the host is friendly and helpful and makes you feel very welcome. All rooms are modern, well equiped and very clean. The hotel is situated across the road from the beach and is in a good location. We found two dog friendly pubs very close by. This is a hotel we will definitely revisit.

Thank you very much indeed for leaving your kind review. So glad that you all enjoyed your stay and that you found some dog friendly pubs for Cadbury. We do believe that Eastbourne has some great dog friendly eateries and pubs, as well as the beach and downland for some lovely walks. We hope that you'll return in the future.

My wife and I stayed at the Royal in mid-August of this year as a treat for our first marriage anniversary, and we will definitely be staying there again the next time we travel to Eastbourne. The exterior was clean and welcoming, and though we had not brought our dog, my wife was particularly glad to see that the Royal was pet-friendly!

The owner of the hotel was extremely friendly and welcoming, wishing us a happy anniversary when we first arrived and also when we had breakfast the next day. The room was lovely and clean with a warm and welcoming decor, the bed was clean with comfortable sheets, and the bathroom was extremely clean. Even the carpet was clean and stain-free, something you don't see at every establishment.

We had a very comfortable night's sleep without disturbance, and then went downstairs for a great breakfast. It was a self-serve buffet, but unlike many hotels and B&Bs that we have seen, the produce was all fresh and much of it home-cooked; the pastries in particular were absolutely delicious. The owner came in and had a chat with us, telling us about the history of the hotel, and then bade us goodbye as we left. Will definitely be staying here again!

Stayed in Eastbourne Sunday 30th October, travelled by car for 4 hours so quite tired by the time we got to the beach front looking for somewhere to stay so checked trip advisor on iPhone and the Royal came up high so decided that was the one. Friendly and helpful host, clean room small but lovely and cosy ( the only room left ) great position near parade and restaurants. Breakfast all home made and very tasty. Good value place to stay and dogs are welcome too.
