When we were told to pay in full on arrival, my alarm bells were ringing. We were given the 'drying room' for starters, which must have been next to the hotels boiler room. The heat was intense, like a jungle prison cell. My partner was in tears from the start. We decided to pop out and sort the issue later. After an unpleasant stroll around the time capsule that is Eastbourne, we returned to demand that we were moved to a more temperate room. This was better, although looked like it had been decorated by a blind person in a hurry! The next morning we thought we'd try and retrieve some value from the included breakfast. After being served some fruit, we then sat for over 20 minutes without being served or even spoken to by the staff. Sometimes its best to cut your losses, we left, hungry and annoyed that places like this are allowed to stay open
