Our coach arrived at hotel at 14.45, we were told abruptly that rooms weren't ready & to wait in lounge. After about 20 minutes we noticed some people had their room keys, no-one bothered to tell us that we could check-in. A disappointing start.
We had requested & paid supplement for sea-view rooms, also asked for rooms to be near each other, this was exactly what we got.
The hotel overlooks the sea & views are superb, worth paying extra to get this.The shower in our room was very small & old, the room was serviced every day & was clean. Beds comfortable. TV temperamental.
Evening meals served from 18.30 - 19.15, you are shown to a table and this is yours for the duration of your stay, 3 course meal with a choice for each course, bar person comes to take your drinks order, waitress service for all meals. Breakfast served from 08.00 - 09.15, self- serve of fruit juices, cereals etc. with a large choice, waitress takes order for full English breakfast with variations if required.10/10 to chef. Food was of a high quality & was served quickly.
Entertainment was very good, mine host was very funny, 1st night was bingo & magician, 2nd night bingo, quiz & disco, 3rd night vocalist who was excellent & had everyone up dancing.
Good service at bar, no queues, shame that Dean was moving on to pastures new.
The hotel decor is tired, The lifts are old & very small, struggled to get 4 people in.
Plenty of seating areas in the hotel lounges.
Visited the pier but not much open, bandstand was being renovated.
Crown & Anchor pub very friendly & menu looked good.
Eastbourne town centre larger than we thought it would be & has all the high street stores.
Would we go back... yes for food quality & entertainment.
