The room was average and clean. Only stayed for one night but suited our purpose perfectly. Was very quite and had a good sleep. The staff were polite but we found that the breakfast was unclear on what you had to pay for and what was included in what we had already paid.

Situated on the sea front at Eastbournes the Big Sleep is in a fantastic location. The rooms were spacious, clean and well decorated. The bathroom was a good size (with a bath!). The staff were friendly and helpful. We opted to upgrade the breakfast for £3.50 which included all the continental breakfast options with a cooked breakfast as well.

The Big Sleep, is very good value for an hotel on the sea front in Eastbourne. It's clean, modern, simple (minimalist, even), comfortable and convenient with helpful staff. In fact, it's nicer on the inside than the exterior would lead you to believe. Our room was bigger than we anticipated. It's a short(ish), bracing walk along the "prom" from the...

Good location on the front, parking by permit from the hotel for just a £1 on the street, big large rooms with funky curtains, however small SQUARE TV could do with updating and the bed is so squeaky we had to pull the mattress onto the floor and sleep on it there. The bathroom was clean, the continental breakfast is...

Lovely big & warm room in an excellent location with a nice view over the sea. Comfortable bed and generously sized bathroom with 2 showers - one over the bath & one stand alone wet room affair. Walk in wardrobe with plenty of storage space. Inclusive breakfast simple but plentiful with a cooked option at a budget price - although...
