Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

A welcoming stay with comfortable well maintained clean rooms. Bathroom is bright modern and clean. The dinning area is adorned with an interesting historic frieze painting with a time line of important events for the workers of the UK. Can't recommend the food however, but lots of good restaurants around.

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

CKoussa, Owner at Congress Apartments, responded to this review, 13 June 2014
We think this review is for a different hotel as we do not have a “historic frieze painting” anywhere. We tried to contact the reviewer to clarify, but have not had a response.

There is a workers union hotel in Eastbourne with a large frieze, so this review most likely refers to them.

This is the second visit to the Congress Hotel and will not be the last. If you are expecting a 5 star hotel with all the mod cons this hotel is not for you, but if you are looking for clean comfortable surroundings with good size rooms, friendly and helpful staff this hotel will not disappoint you. There is plenty of free on road parking outside the Congress Hotel unlike a lot of the hotels nearer to the centre. The sea front is only a couple of minutes walk away from the hotel. The food is very good and served quickly with a smile.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for a short break.
