Decent but very dated hotel, great location.

Pros: location location location
Cons: due for a refurbishment!
Location: Eastbourne is a nice place to spend a day or two, and this hotel is ideally located for exploring the area.
Very dated interiors in a formerly grand hotel. Some really excellent staff members, some maybe a bit disinterested, but no bad or rude people that we ran across. The room was reasonably comfortable, although the mattress and pillows weren't great, and it was definitely due for new carpet, curtains, etc. Some lovely common spaces in the main lobby. Location was perfect, breakfast was good (but with absolutely atrocious coffee ). Value was good, and even given the negatives, I would stay here again for a night or two but not for an extended visit.
