Hubby & I stayed here with our daughter, her hubby & 5yr old son from 30th July thru a Travelzoo offer. We were given a room upgrade with a side sea view.(room 203) Lovely, although it seemed a room of 2 halves. Modern, refurbished bedroom, but the bathroom, although large, needed a new loo and bath/shower. We forgot to mention to reception that the extractor fan didn't work. Being at the side of the hotel it was fairly cool at all times. Our daughter's family room (huge, with 2 armchairs), at the front of the hotel was very hot, but they got a fan from reception which helped.

Breakfast was always hot & there was a great choice of food. We didn't eat dinner there as we were there to visit family, so they fed us.

A few negatives: Our daughter, son in law and grandson went swimming one morning and she wasn't happy to find a plaster floating in the pool, and for the whole day our grandson was miserable due to the chlorine being so strong his eyes smarted. And of course the parking. A little challenging when you have difficulties walking.

The staff were all great, especially Clare who manned the bar and the tall blonde (sorry I didn't find out her name) who greeted us each morning for breakfast.

We arrived just as the pier started smoking - it was very sad to see it burning. We've had some lovely walks on it.

All in all a very good hotel to stay in. We would return, but out of season when Eastbourne is much quieter.

Room Tip: Room 254 is very large but at the front, so some noise is inevitable Room 203 is a good size and at...

We were lucky enough to book this on a travelzoo deal for bed and breakfast.

Fantastic location right on the sea front, major bonus, our room was fabulously done out, shame no sea view but that would have been the icing on the cake and we only paid a small amount so were very pleased. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bathroom was beautifully tiled.

Everyone really friendly and the service was impeccable as was the breakfast.

I would definitely return and definitely recommend

Room Tip: as fab location might be worth paying for sea view

Stayed for 3 nights on an Amazon Local deal £139 with breakfast. On that note the breakfast was had plenty of choice and was well cooked. Service was was attentive and polite. Our room was very compact although being at the back it was very quite and the bed was very comfortable.

Our standard rooms are smaller but as you say they can be quieter than the front so I guess it is a matter of preference.

We hope to see you again soon.

Overall enjoyed the stay. Upgraded to a seaview room which is worth the extra. Just across from the beach and only a short walk to the shopping area. Breakfast good but not so keen on buffet style. Nice swimming pool. rooms a bit tired. Reception staff very helpful.

After an initial problem with the room offered. which was quickly resolved by the offer of another room. The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. The food was excellent and we would definitely return. I have Coeliac decease and have to have a gluten free diet , there was no problem at all.

Room Tip: We were 1st floor corner front there was no problem with noise at any time.
