A mixed-bag to say the least; my expectations weren't great, having stayed here about 10 years ago. First impressions are of the typical Eastbourne Lions chain offering; once grand, now fading fast and in desperate need of some refurbishment beyond just the occasional tin of paint. The public rooms are shabby and we were less than impressed by the grotty corridors on the way to our room. However, after negotiating several fire doors and short flights of stairs, we arrived in a much smarter area. We were delighted by a massive, well-appointed room with a decent view. The bathroom was clean but in need of refurbishment, too. (We laughed at the ashtray strategically placed for the occupant of the toilet!) Happily, there was plenty of hot water, but the beds weren't the most comfortable, sadly. Whereas the water was hot, breakfast was anything but. The menu card says cooked to order - our full fry-ups had clearly been sitting around for some time. At £120 a night, I would have expected more. The Mansion comes nowhere near other seafront hotels like The Lansdowne or The Cavendish. The size of the room meant this hotel just about reached average; most of the other aspects were poor.
