I've spent there very nice weekend. Perfect location, nice stuff, good price. It's very easy to get there from train station. I think it's great place to stay there for families and also for young people. I totally recommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed last weekend at the West Rocks Hotel. It has been recently refurbished, and the decor and furnishings are very well put together. Our bedroom was beautifully proportioned, with a panoramic bay window overlooking the sea, the colour scheme was calm and restful and the bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have slept in.
The staff were efficient and extremely helpful with our requests. We also met the new proprietors who were charming and evidently very much involved in the daily running of the hotel.
We decided to stay in for dinner, and were not disappointed. The food was freshly prepared and cooked and was extrememly tasty. The breakfast was also of a very good standard.
Definately a great place to unwind!

Such a beautiful hotel in Eastbourne 2 minutes from the beach, real attention to detail and spectacular sea view.

We had Sunday lunch, food was excellent, impeccable service, very warm welcome and the Chef even came out to talk to us about the local sourced produce.

Have just had a fantastic weekend at the newly renovated West Rocks hotel. First of all the location is amazing right on the sea front and near the pier. Parking was easy. The reception staff were friendly and efficient and showed me to my sea view room. The rooms have been renovated to a high standard and very tastefully done. Plasma TV, plenty of storage and tea coffee facilities. The bathroom was great, very clean with a good shower and bath. It was also good to have such a great view of the sea whilst lying in bed! The high light of the stay was the afternoon cream tea! Freshly baked scones and banana cake. Yum. Highly recommended. The chef of the hotel was great - traditional English breakfast and locally produce sausages and bacon were a nice touch. We had a meal in the hotel on Saturday night which was terrific and of a high standard. If you are looking for great value and friendly service I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Get a sea view room.

Stayed here for a few days and was very impressed with the renovation work and level of care and attention from the staff.
The hotel has been given a real facelift over the last few months, which has given it a fresh look yet it has maintained many features in keeping with such a grand building. The sea views from my room were outstanding. I felt like I was on the bridge of a ship I was so close to the water. The food was a pleasant surprise too. Restaurant quality rather than the usual hotel fare normally on offer in similar establishments. I'll definitely be back.

My wife and I spent a few nights at West Rocks last week and we would like to thank Ian(Manager) and his staff, for looking after us so well! In particular, we were very impressed with the standard and cleanliness of the rooms and also with the excellent food provided by Nick(Chef).Our room was located at the front of the hotel and, of course, all these rooms come with amazing views of the foreshore and pier.We intend to come back later in the year,in order to pay a visit to one of the theatres in the locality.

Room Tip: Book a room at the front of hotel and sit back and enjoy the ever changing views!!
