The hotel is conveniently located right on the seafront, few meters away from Eastbourne Pier. In a few minutes you can drive to the Seven Sisters and to many other local amenities. First negative point is the parking: the hotel does not have its own car park, you need to park where you can find a space on/around the seafront. Parking is free between 6 pm and 8 am, you can buy parking permit from the hotel reception for the rest of the day (1 GBP/day). We were there for bank holiday and we managed to find a space within 300 metres, just need some patience. The staff at the check in the day we arrived was very rude and useless, the staff at the reception the following days was very polite and helpful. Part of the hotel (like room 324) face a local pub that has very loud music (at least of Friday and Saturday night). The pub is well sound proofed, however every time somebody enter or exit you will here very loud music (even on the third floor). On the plus side, the music finish around 11.30 pm-midnight (so be prepared to go to sleep only after that). Rooms are clean, rather big and nice, same for bathrooms. The first two nights we could not sleep due to some very rude guys into next room: problem is that walls are quite thin, there are a lot of fire doors in the corridors (that slam) and the floors are very creaky; so if there are somebody rude and inconsiderate it will be a big problem. Luckly once we raised the problem with the reception, we were moved to another room, far away from the guys, much more quiet.
All in all the staff was helpful and polite (except at check in), rooms are ok and location is handy, good value for money. However parking can be an issue, the area is not very quiet and the walls are thin and can be noisy.
