Duncurin and family recently spent 4 nights in Eastbourne visiting relatives, and opted for the Hydro.
Upon entering the foyer of this genteel hotel, one could be forgiven for thinking one had entered a bygone age and that any minute Poirot or even Miss Marple was about to look round from one of the wing-backed chairs.
Though the reception rooms downstairs have a feel of yesteryear about them, do not let this deceive you, however, as this is a well-appointed, comfortable hotel with nicely refurbished rooms with crisp, clean décor and en-suite bathrooms which are spotless ( at least in the two rooms we’d booked ! ) and kept that way by the diligence of the hotel maids who worked tirelessly and efficiently. One niggle was that the double bed in our room seemed just a little too small and Duncurin and spouse are amazed at how any marriage can survive on a bed that is just 4’ 6” in width! The girls had a twin room, which was perfect.
We had opted for a B&B package, which was extremely good value, and a varied and nicely cooked range of delights awaited us each morning.
Grounds are beautifully tended and though we did not have time to try the Croquet lawn nor the outdoor heated pool, it looked inviting and well tended.
So, for not much more than one of the national ‘budget’ hotel chains; we were very pleased with the comfort and welcome we received from this worthy hotel and when visiting our relatives in future will be more than happy to choose the Hydro once again.
