“would not stay again”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

we were very disappointed when we arrived,we booked a double room and got a single with a double bed in it,which made the room small.jarome did apolagise ! which didnt help us really.
Considering i phoned and asked for a sea view about 4 weeks before and was told by carol it was on the computer we endid up looking at a side street,my friends name wasnt even on the list,neither were 2 other people one gentleman had to share with someone else in a double room,they both booked singles,they were told if they didnt do that one of them could go down the road to another hotel.ithink carol needs to learn some people skills,jarome was friendly enough,also when sitting on the loo our knees touched the door.

Room Tip: dont bother

I have just returned after a christmas break at marine parade hotel and can honestly say that i have never been to a hotel that have got such friendly staff and also the owners, Carol & Jerome, get involved with visitors too. The rooms were basic but very clean, food you just could not fault, it was 1st class. Price wise reasonable and entertainment was also good. The hotel is right by the sea and get a good view with just a couple of minutes walk to the pier, and shops are very close too. I would definitely recommend to people to stay here, and myself will definitely return one day.

I stayed here with my partner for 2 nights in September, we came across the hotel by walking down the road it look pleasant from the outside so we decided to have a look, we were given the keys to 2 rooms to look one with a sea view one at the back of the hotel, we choose the sea view room which was £10 more. The room was average size, with nice sea view, double bed, tea and coffee making facilities, a bathroom with a shower toilet and sink, i feel bathroom could do with some updating. The room also had a small TV and information pack about Eastbourne and surrounding areas. Breakfast was served in the basement between 8 and 10am, it was fairly basic, after first morning of breakfast me and partner agreed we should have opted out. The hotel is in a good location very close to the pier. The staff we encountered were friendly and polite.

My aunt and uncle stayed with Carol & Jerome at the Marine Parade for a couple of days. They could not have been better looked after. Although they were only Bed & Breakfast they were able to join in with the entertainment provided in the evening for the coach party staying there. All in all a good experience. Thank you

Room Tip: Sea views are worth having

This is our third visit and we always get a genuinely warm and friendly reception when we arrive at the Marine Parade Hotel. We feel like we've known the owners Carol and Jerome for years. This location is perfect for us, overlooking the beach and close to the pier but away from its noise. The rooms are always clean and tidy and the cooked breakfast is absolutely delicious. This is not a luxurious or formal hotel but one with a pleasant, friendly and relaxed atmosphere and, we think, extremely good value. And yes we have already booked to come back next Summer!

We booked this trip with a group of elderly folk, well we are 70 plus years ourselves. on arrival we were given our keys to our rooms and were pleasantly greeted with a beautiful sea view, the sea was an aqua blue/green colour.
Our room was spacious enough to move around freely, with a large bay window, plenty of wardrobe/cupboard space too. It was nice and clean, the cleaning was done every day and the sheets were checked daily too, even though they had certain days to change them,
I would advice that, whilst booking for this Hotel, if one is disabled or elderly and frail, ask for a ground floor or low floor, this is if you require a single room.
the ground floor single rooms are larger than on other floors and there are some sea view single rooms,the proprietors Jerome and carol will willingly oblige you, should you have any requests as mentioned.
there is entertainment every night, at least in high season. We had great fun and enyoyment every night,, the entertainment and the staff, helped you to enjoy
Jerome and carol are so kind and understanding, they have the patience of angels. The rest of the staff, waiters, cleaners and bar staff, are all very good, hard working and helpful. Thats it folks, I hope you all enjoy your stay in this hotel as much as we did
