                  Very comfortable and friendly

                  I did not like the view of the bins from our superior room

                • Family with children
                  8.2

                  We had a spacious and beautifully positioned room with direct views across the sea front to the beach and sea.

                  We were extremely disappointed with the vegetarian food OFfERED to two of our guests as part of the dining menu in the garden hotel. We felt that the food on offer was of very poor value compared with the main menu on offer. a 5 star hotel should have a 5 star chef who can cater for vegetarians with beautiful and imaginative food.

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  The bedrooms and bathrooms were extremely old-fashioned eg. pink carpet in the bathroom and frilly net curtains. The prices in the bar were extortionate and the set-5 course meal - although delicious - was too much food and wasteful. We would have preferred just two courses. Wines were also extremely expensive.

                  Remembering the many happy times when, as a member of the Devonshire management club, I attended all our winter conferences at the Grand, Eastbourne. The many foreign staff , as well as the English members, were just as welcoming and interesting as in those days of yore. Congratulations on maintaining the Grand's high standards. The indoor pool is magnificent.

                  Some of the tables in the main dining room are unstable. It is easy to spill liquids. They should be seen to.

                • Older travelers
                  9.0

                  Beautiful hotel, enjoyed our stay. The staff were all very friendly and courteous, especially the gentlemen when we arrived who helped with the luggage, parking the cars. The staff who served coffee on the terrace were extremely kind and always had a smile for you.

                  I would have liked more information on the hotel and the surrounding area and shown perhaps the beautiful decor of the hotel as it was so big and there was, I am sure, things I would have enjoyed being pointed out to me. It would have been nice if perhaps the choice of menus available could have been put into the rooms instead of having to decide when you arrived at the restaurant. I came with my elderly sister who is not in the best of health and stayed quite a lot in the room in the evening whilst she was sleeping. There was only 2 plain tea bags and 4 milks for the whole day and I was not sure if I should ask for more. I must admit I did feel a bit out of my depth with regards to asking for things which is probably my own fault but I wanted a very special few days for my sister instead of the usual hotel I would normally have chosen.

                • Couple
                  6.2

                  The weather and its availability to the sea front

                  Car Parking very poor. The room was expensive as a standard room at £200 per night. Was not available an hour after published time of 2pm. No mini bar - No air conditioning as room was extremely warm. Also the furniture in the room was very dated, was very scratched and damaged (Inc chips out of the wooden toilet seat!). There are far better 4 star hotels than rating this as a 5 star

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  This is an excellent, traditional Victorian Hotel, with up to at faclities, fabulous food and tip top servce. Elegant and yet understated which made for a very enjoyable and relaxig break. Nothing was too much trouble, and any requests were met with efficiency and courtesy. A truly memorable break in fabulously ambiant surroundings. Well reccommended.

                  couldnt get a signal in room, had dinner in restaurant ok but couldnt understand in this day and age my husband had to have a loan of a tie ithink it should move with the times

                • Older travelers
                  6.6

                  The general ambience of the Hotel is good and every thing is rather "grand" in the Entrance /Reception area.

                  Our bedroom - tiny - overlooking nothing. Tiny bath and no room in general - total waste of money actually.

                • Single
                  8.2

                  very helpful and informative lady who booked us in on arrival. In fact, all staff we encountered seemed to take a pride in their job.

                  I think possibly having a dress code stipulating jacket or tie for gentlemen in the restaurant in the evening is a little archaic. smart/caual and no jeans is fine, but as a result of your policy, we chose to dine elsewhere.

                  Lovely old building, good to experience in its original style

                  Spa changing facilities not the best

                  Comfort of rooms,spa facilities,Agatha Christie old worldliness.

                  Price a little high,especially as breakfast wasn't included.Couldn't have an evening meal in the hotel as it was fully booked.

                  We had a lovely holiday were waited on hand and foot, treated us like royalty, nothing was to much trouble for the staff to do for us. Very pricey but you get what you paid for. The staff always had a smile on there faces. I would recomend it to any one who can afford it, or for a very special occassion.

                  From the time we arrived to when we left the staff were fantastic. The doormen helped park the car, take the luggage etc, concierge helped us with taxi's, everyone was welcoming to my 5yr old and all in all we had a great stay. We will definitely be coming back.

                  We were given room 125 which looks out over extract fans, very small room and noisy, asked to change rooms, no problem changed to room 410, much nicer room and no noise. Bed was very soft, headboard needed to be re-attached to the bed, pillows were made of fresh air. Spa was very nice. Overall very nice hotel, staff the very best you could ask for. But you should never give your guests the very worst room first. Bad reflection of hotel management. These rooms should be given out only if there is a guest begging for a room for the night.
