“Average short break in Eastbourne”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Just returned from a 3 day break at the Shore View. Great location along the promenade not far from the poor old pier. Room clean, bed comfortable, redecorated, small but ok for the length of time we were there. Shame about the shower, very very small with a shower curtain that wouldn't stay in the tray, so floor got very wet. Room 306 opposite the lift which could be a little noisy. Breakfast was quite good, you wouldn't go hungry. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Didn't use the evening meal in the hotel, just across the road, on the corner, the pub did excellent evening meals, was quite busy in there. Parking was a nightmare, so we left the car in its parking slot when we found one and never used it until we came home. Hotel sell you a parking permit for a £1 a day, good value.

Room Tip: Sea view was quite good. Bit noisy from traffic.

we recently stayed for a 2 night break for the eastbourne airshow. Great location.

Hotel is clean and well presented. Room was a good size with double bed a sofa bed for daughter and good decoration. Bathroom ok but some marks around the bath but clean with fresh towels.

Iron, ironing board, hairdryer and tea and coffee facilities - all you need for a short break

breakfast is buffet style, don't expect overseas buffet but the basics. Would suggest you book the night before as £9.95 if you just turn up. We ate out in the evening at the crown and anchor as not much on the menu we fancied.

Parking is hit and miss if busy but you can buy a 24 hour voucher from the hotel and park in the bays outside the hotel

good service and friendly staff

nothing to complain about and would stay again

Room Tip: request a seaview

We booked during the air show as a treat for our wedding anniversary.
Rubbish was left on the table by cleaning staff, body wash in the smallest bath I have ever seen was left empty, spoon was dirty, room had dust everywhere and looked like the "recent refurbishment" talked about online had been done diy style..... badly

Room Tip: Book elsewhere

My family stayed here for a weekend break.

Initially I was impressed the location of the hotel ( it was right on the coastal road, minutes walk to the pier)

However we found parking a huge problem

The hotel does issue great value 'parking vouchers' costing only £1 for 24 hrs, but the problem is there's no where to park during the daytime.

The hotel itself is a lovely old building, clean if not a bit 'tired!

We were allocated a room on the ground floor, which I was unhappy with as the outside pavement was only inches from our bed.
I requested a room on a higher floor which the receptionist organised straight away.

The breakfast was excellent and the friendly bar staff.

I would recommend this hotel but please remember to request a 'upstairs' room.

Clean, spacious and on the sea front. Breakfast was amazing value for money and most of the staff were polite and courteous. Great pub at the left side of the hotel and excellent ice cream parlour at the other side.

We enjoyed our stay here. Hotel was in a perfect location, room was large and clean and beds very comfortable. Plenty of tea/coffee etc and large TV.

Only small gripe was that there was no bodywash in bathing area although when our room was serviced the next day this oversight was corrected but didn't give a very good first impression. Very easy to come and go as you please and we thought the hotel offered excellent value for money overall.

It was let down by the immaturity of the Reception staff. They gave off a somewhat silly immature attitude in their dealings with customer's queries. Fortunately we did not have too many dealings with them. I also noticed several other customers complaining about the Wi Fi (we couldn't get access to this either) and the Reception staff didn't seem at all bothered about sorting it out and had a poor attitude. I got the distinct impression that this was probably a regular occurrence.

stayed here for 4 nights. this used to be a Travelodge a few years back.
very good value and great location right on the seafront.
very friendly and helpful check in. our room was around the back of the hotel which can be a little noisy, luckily the window was decent quality so this was not a problem. the hotel is in pretty good order so no complaints, no comment on the food as we did not try it.
the only negative is the parking, find a spot and leave your car there is my advice!
