For the past few years my wife and I have enjoyed our Turkey and Tinsel celebrations at this hotel every December. But recently we just went for a short break. The Hotel is in an ideal quiet location just one road back from the sea front. There is a Conference Centre nearby, also the Devonshire Theatre. The staff are always...

We stayed for 5 nights at the end of April with our Probus Club.I cannot fault the Hotel in any respect. The food was superb with plenty of choice. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff were all friendly and helpful particularly our Latvian waitress. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for five nights and could not fault it. From start to finish I was made to feel welcome by all staff. The food and service at all meals was excellent and the menu choice really good. The rooms and cleanliness was also first rate. I would definitely recommend it for a stay in Eastbourne.

Very friendly staff. Hotel very clean, modern facilities, and comfortable. Breakfast bar had lots of choice and the hot food was freshly cooked. Only slight surprise was that only the adults had breakfast included in price of stay. I used Booking.com and did not realise it stated children pay half adult cost of full breakfast. Still good value. Recommend.

When trying to sort through Eastbourne hotel choices, using a combination of Booking.com & Tripadvisor, you still don’t quite know what you will get until you are there and experience it for yourself. There are so many places to choose from that it’s a bit of a minefield. But we went for the New Wilmington and were very glad that...

Stayed for a couple of days over Easter and had a very pleasant break. We had one of the newly renovated superior rooms which was fabulous and well worth the extra money. The whole hotel was really clean and the food good. The reception staff were very welcoming and if we return to Eastbourne we will stay here again.

We stayed for one night on Good Friday and weren't disappointed. I chose it due to the excellent reviews and it lived up to expectations. It's a friendly hotel and rooms are spotlessly clean. We were given a family room with a double and single bed which was perfect for my husband, me and our 4 yo. My only criticism...

Large room with great bathroom, everywhere very clean. Breakfast with a wide range of options, lovely location just a minute from the beach and a few streets away from some lovely local restaurants and shops. Would stay again.

Excellent 3 star AA rated Hotel. Nice bar, and lounge. Lift to all three floors. Restaurant was modern and breakfast and evening meals had a big menu plus specials. The food was very good and all the staff attentive. Good area and quiet. Near the sea front and ten minutes from main shops.

As EASTBOURNE people, we know how to rate a good hotel! We visited for a large gathering of families - and wow! what great value, good service and quality food! Beautiful decor, very boutique-style and comfortable. Great service at bar. Lunch was excellent, really good steak and salmon, with a great selection of vegetables, all served with great presentation and...
