Very welcoming, helpful reception. Room big, warm and well equipped with an excellent bathroom, if fairly basic. Breakfast slightly underwhelming but plenty of good coffee and croissants. Excellent value for money.

Our room was on the ground floor but up some steps. It was simple but comfortable and clean. However I found it a little strange that there was not a power point beside the kettle - it had to go on the desk! There was an ample choice for a continental type breakfast but perhaps the addition of some Marmite....?

Check in straightforward with polite and knowledgeable staff Room 115 great size. Bathroom clean and tidy. Continental breakfast sufficient. Didn't try the cooked option. Parking outside the hotel is by a resident card and costs only £1.00 per day. Very satisfied with the experience.

Couldn't fault the friendly helpful staff. The room was simple but spotless, well designed, nice bathroom, comfy bed and fab furry curtains! The continental breakfast was not inspiring but still a great value package.

Great place to stay ample room with good facilities and an equally large bathroom. The sleeping side was good with a good view of beaches and seafront. Very close to amenities and town center with a couple of places to eat and drink in adjoining street.

Lovely sea view, friendly staff. Rooms were comfortable with everything you needed. The only dislike for me was the coffee at breakfast, however the selection of items for the continental breakfast was excellent. We paid an extra £4 one of the days for a cooked breakfast, which was well cooked and tasty. I would happily have paid a supplement for...

The Big Sleep Hotel in Eastbourne is I believe one of three sites of hotels bearing this name (Cardiff and Cheltenham) and now run by the Compass Hospitality group. The hotel boasts an enviable position right on the seafront. We were able to park immediately and easily outside in the road, and for £1 from the hotel, issued a 12...

We arrived in the evening with my partner checking us in. The hotel itself presents more as a hostel with some provisions being classed as a hotel offering. We were offered a parking permit by the hotel for the cost of £1, not bad but the parking on the sea front and just outside the hotel is free after 6pm...

Really recommend this hotel staff very pleasant and so so helpful, even offered to change my tyre after i got a puncture. Very clean. Breakfast something for everyone. Would highly recommend. The sea view was lovely. And in walking distance to the pier or the theatre. Lovely location. Really quiet and peaceful.
