First class service from start to finish. Owners of hotel went out of there way to help us from the second we arrived.

I was told about this hotel by friends and was a bit dubious because whilst I have a dog I was not sure if I wanted to hear any barking. There was none although I met two well behaved dogs and that added to the overall pleasant expierience. My sea front room was spotless and I slept well with the...

I stayed for three nights at The Royal Hotel in Eastbourne on a mission to de-stress and enjoy the sea air and I happily achieved both! The hotel is right on the sea front with only a road separating you from the promenade and the beach so you can drift off to the sound of the waves and wake up...

We had the most lovely weekend in East Sussex celebrating our wedding anniversary. This hotel is perfectly situated on the seafront, is dog-friendly and not just dog-tolerated, lovely friendly service and wholesome organic vegetarian breakfast foods. The room was spotless and homely. If we came here again we would definitely stay here. The only niggle is finding a parking spot...

Eddy was incredibly welcoming to us and our dog. Lovely clean, comfortable room. Great advice on walks and dog friendly pubs and restaurants. Very tasty home made breakfast. The hotel truly welcomes dogs rather than just tolerating them. Highly recommend. Peter, Susan and Brenna.
