We had a really lovely stay at this hotel recently. The room was extremely comfortable and we had a huge bathroom. Everything was clean and in excellent condition. The situation is in a very pleasant part of Eastbourne, away from the very busy centre but near enough to walk in t the main town. Our fab breakfast was served in the traditional restaurant.

I booked a standard twin room which came with a bathroom that came with a shower cubicle. This was fine, but needed more shelf/cupboard space. It was nice to be able to open the windows in this bedroom. Breakfast was included, which was excellent. We were able to use the outdoor pool (towels supplied) which was a real treat. The garden area was beautifully kept, overlooking the sea. The hotel is situated on the west side of the town, but only 10 minutes walk to the theatres, and 20 minutes to the pier and/or the railway station. Direct line in hotel lobby to cab firm who were excellent and always avilable if needed.

Dear Guest Thank you for your review and kind words following your stay with us at the Hydro hotel. I was pleased to read you enjoyed your stay and that breakfast and our outdoor pool were highlights! As we are situated slightly out of the town centre in a quieter area I always recommend guests to wander down into town and then enjoy a 5 minute taxi ride back to the Hydro before of course that customary glass of wine in our bar! I look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future when I can assure you of our very best attention best wishes Jonathan Owen

Hydro is a fine hotel, maintaining traditional virtues of courtesy and approachability with efficient front of house. As with many hotels today, it is difficult to secure good staff so the hotel is working hard on recruiting and training new people. The public areas are excellent, beautiful rooms in Edwardian style. The lifts are rather small, a difficult problem to resolve.
