My partner and I booked a hotel in Eastbourne through Bookings.com for a Friday and Saturday night because we had been invited to a wedding. A few weeks before the wedding we had a call saying the hotel we had originally booked had been overbooked and so they were moving us to the East Beach. At first I felt a bit put out because I started wondering if the East Beach would be as good as the place we originally had booked. But they agreed to honour the price we booked the original hotel for and so we thought we'd give it a try and see.
When we got to Eastbourne we drove past the hotel we had originally booked and it did look a bit of a dump from the outside, but when we got to the East Beach it looked really nice from the outside and made us feel quite pleased to have been moved. The welcome we got from the lady on reception was really friendly and when we got in our room we were pleasantly surprised.
The room was very clean and the en-suite bathroom floor was really shiny like it had just been polished. There was a small tv and a dvd player, although we didn't use the dvd player at all and only used the tv a little bit. The bed was very comfy and a good size, although it was too single beds pushed together rather than one double bed. We did have to walk through the dining room to get to our room but that wasn't too much of a problem.
We didn't eat dinner in the hotel, but we had breakfast on both days and it was very nice. Full English with toast, tea/coffee and juice and cereal if you wanted it. I couldn't fault the breakfast or any of the staff who we spoke to whilst we stayed, everyone was very accomodating. There was entertainment in the hotel bar on both nights we were there, but we didn't stay to wach it as the town centre was only a ten minute walk away and most pubs and bars were open til 2am.
In general the weekend was really good, and we were both really pleased of how it had turned out with us being moved to the East Beach. We would definately stay at the East Beach again in the future.

The breakfast in this hotel is the worst offering I have ever experienced in over 30 years of travelling. The thing to cap it was the other guests ordering their dinner over breakfast as if it was something special. So, advise.....Upper grade room OK just don't bother to eat.

When I read all the reviews on here I was thinking the worst, We were about to spend £300 on a place that sucked badly, But when we arrived we were welcomed by an older lady you by all standards was polite, welcoming and helpful. The main lobby needs some upgarding its not dirty its just dated....When we got to our room ( 28) we were pleasantly surprised it was spacious and had a balcony ( which men were actually working on ) but it really didnt bother us as they were gone by 4pm we had a jacuzzi and found the bathroom well done, althougyht little things like somewhere to put our toiletry bags would have been good, Also they only had plastic picnic cups for water which at the cost of the room i was surpised. We had breakfast and it screams BEd and breakfast its basic but very edible and quick, it was just ok. We did encounter one woman who could have been a bit better on the customer service as I would have been scared to complain but she was just didnt kiss butt to customers and I guess that was her way of doing it. Overall though if you do wanna go I cant talk for the other rooms but ours was nice..Although watch out the jacuzzi takes thirty mins to FILL!!! we found it funny and the fact its really not a jacuzzi just blows out water there are no jets,.

How looks can be wrong. Looks great from the outside, the owner is very rude, had workmen outside our window, when we asked how long they would be there for, were told if you dont like it close the curtains, Breakfast was very poor, the cheapest food available, would never stay here again, Checked out and went to another hotel.

Really unpleasant room - smelled, had old, chipped non-matching furniture. Was half of badly converted first floor room (could hear next door's snores!) Everything very sticky - not wiped down. "Bathroom" - shower with grouting turned yellow and loo (with macerator) - was where the "sea view" was - seen through a manky lace curtain on a rotting window frame. Shower pressure (through mouldy showerhead) almost non-existent. Half a roll of cheap loo paper provided. Breakfast was grotty - one cup of weird tasting coffee - no top ups offered - disgusting perfect oblong-shaped sausage (cheapest possible) and one rasher of v salty bacon. This was 3*, £70 thro Late Rooms so already paid for. We arrived late in rain or would have left immediately. Mind bogglingly bad,
