“Very friendly staff in a really old hotel”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Maintanance work is a problem in these old hotels near the coast of Eastbourne. I had this lovely single room with seaview and the bed was really good. But the towels were so old and the shower was not working very well, it was a tiny stream of water that was either cold or extremely warm. I spent two nights here with a week between it. Coming back to the same room was nice, and I felt at home. The staff is friendly, the lovely woman who served breakfast even arranged a nice vegetarian sausage for me.

We spent a week at the East Beach hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our rooms were clean and comfortable, we had good food and we were well looked after, there was a bar in the basement and they had evening entertainment, with music and singing.

Room Tip: Our rooms were on the 2nd floor at the back of the hotel.There was a lift and we used it frequently...

Very friendly greet from a lovely receptionist. Room was very small but sea view was beautiful ! First thought was hmmmm not so sure, its very cosy and dated but actually how much room do you need in a room? It had everything we needed and the old fashioned decor added to its charm. Its sound's silly to complain about the pillows but they really were awful, thin and hard, the towel's could also with replacing but im very picky! The location is great and breakfast was beautiful! Could maybe have s bigger continental choice (croissants etc). Very friendly waitresses and I would stay here again! We had a lovely anniversary so thank you eastbeach

I would like to say a huge thank you to Heidi and staff at the East Beach Hotel. I booked the hotel for my wedding reception in January and was abit unsure of what to expect . But I was not disappointed . Myself and a few guests stayed at the hotel the night before the wedding and were impressed with the rooms. The day of the wedding came and after enjoying a great breakfast we saw the staff working hard to get the hotel ready for the wedding. From start to finish we received fantastic service , lots of alcohol , food etc and a amazing cake . All our guests were impressed by the venue and service and quality of the rooms.. I strongly recommend the east beach hotel for location, price and customer service. I don't see how the hotel has got all the bad reviews from previous guests. I think they must have had their eyes shut or at wrong hotel . ONCE AGAIN THANKS ALOT TO HEIDI , STAFF AND MY GUESTS FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING DAY AN AMAZING DAY.

Once we settled in to our room though (with a great sea view) we found it to be clean and comfortable, yes it was a bit run down but you could see they were making every effort to do it up.The staff were fabulous and nothing was too much trouble. The food was wonderful (compliments to the chef) Good helpings and a good choice to suit all tastes.
We had a ball what with all the excursions and a trip to the theater it was one of the best holidays we have had.
A big thank you to Mike the coach driver who went above and beyond the call of duty.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.

We stayed here for the Weekend and had a really enjoyable stay. On the telephone before we arrived and from the moment we got there the staff were very pleasant, helpful and accomodating. Our Room was gorgeous and we really really enjoyed a splendid weekend. Hard to comment on the restaurant becuase we only had breakfast in the hotel but the breakfast was great. It was a pleasure to be right on the front and enjoy the views and location without it being busy or noisy. It was the perfect place to spend a relaxing weekend.

Being residents of Eastbourne, my partner and I decided to stay to have a night away from the children. We didn't want to go too far from home and also didn't want anything too expensive, so this place seemed ideal. We booked a superior refurbished room and it was very pleasant, you do get what you pay for and i am sure there probably are better hotels in eastbourne but this one was just what we wanted. Clean, tidy, friendly, good cooked breakfast. We would stay again

Room Tip: Ask for sea view if possible, it's worth it
