Slumber in style in the Sussex countryside in one of our super comfy new generation bedrooms, with an impressive 40" flat screen TV and freshly-updated bathroom with large shower head. Our north Eastbourne hotel is right next to the national cycle network and the South Downs National Park, so you're in the ideal spot for an active country escape or a successful business trip. Nip across to Dieppe on the Newhaven Ferry. Or stick around for a family adventure at Drusillas Park. Take a boat ride, a refreshing dip in the sea, or just relax at Eastbourne beach. Whatever you've been up to, our tasty Whitbread Inn restaurant and those huge comfy beds will be ready and waiting.

The cooling fan was very quiet. The bed was comfortable. Service staff were helpful and friendly. Low quality pillows are too soft and do nothing for a good night’s sleep. The room was excessively hot but this I understand because the weather was very warm. The room had not been cleaned very well before we arrived, because there were discarded sweets under the bed. Lorry drivers should be made aware that reversing alarms at 04:30 make them no friends. Covid rules have eased so why is there no policy in the hotel to open room windows and room doors on opposite sides of the building to get any trough put of airflow? This action would make life more comfortable for the house-keeping staff, and give some protection against infection?

As always with premier inn, the hotel staff, rooms, bed and cleanliness were great. My only snag was breakfast - it was an all inclusive buffet but we were charged 60p for some cheese for a one year old baby. The money itself is not much I know but it just felt silly in principle.

We stayed overnight and have a 1st floor room at the back, which was very quiet and looking out onto trees. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the room, the bathroom and the comfort of the bed. Had a great nights sleep. Good access to a cafe, shop / petrol station, pub, fast food. Nice staff, and very good value. We would stay here again.

Stayed with my wife at the beginning of August. Spoke to carleen on the phone before our arrival date who was very helpful booking our breakfast times and gave us a room on the ground floor after I explained my walking difficulties. Check in was quick and easy and we were given info that the cleaners wouldn’t go in our room during our stay. We were able to get extra tea and coffee from reception. There were shortages of certain items on the breakfast buffet in the morning but it didn’t affect our stay as the hotel was so good. Great staff, clean rooms, what more can you ask for!
