This was a trip for my mother and my brother and sister and I, It was my mothers 80th birthday, the hotel was aware of this
We were staying on friday and saturday nights
First thing was that on booking in, my mother had been placed on the 3rd floor, so we asked for a change and she was moved to a nice roomy bedroom on the 2nd floor along the corridor from me, perfect! Except that my room was small, and my sisters room was smaller! We thought that generally the rooms needed some attention, although clean, the decor was outdated. I had a spa bath in my bathroom, but it smelt badly of "old" water when turned on, I didn't fancy getting in it!
The food was served via buffet style, the hotel was full, so it was busy, there was plenty of food, the choice reasonable
On the saturday night they had prepared a special table for us and arranged a birthday cake which was thoughtful, the sight of the waiters and most of the other diners singing happy birthday was a treat for sore eyes, and a lovely surprise for mum!
A special mention to "Anna" in the retaurant, she was aware of my mothers needs and was very helpful, even getting her evening meal from the buffet for her
In conclusion, Eastbourne is an old seaside town, the hotel matches this, The rooms need a tidy up, the beds ar firm and well used but apart from that we all enjoyed our stay, after all, my mother wants to go back when she is 85!
