We only wanted one night's stay in Eastbourne and chose this hotel on the strength of tripadvisor and also the very attractive bed bfast and dinner deal this week.

Dear champagneBerkshire Thank you for wonderful review. Our Chef is indeed very talented. Our menu changes on a daily basis and the art of any good hotel is managing to please everyone, no matter the varying tastes and preferences. Our Sunday roasts are extremely well received as well as our wonderful desserts.
