West Rocks hosted a fun and entering wine tasting evening last Friday, that we had the pleasure to attend. Fabulous wines, and great hosting by the West Rocks Team, with Francois leading the way. With more of these evenings planned, we will be sure to return.

We were privileged to taste wines from across the world which were paired with some incredible taster meals. The evening was hosted by an enchanted member of staff,...

We stayed for one night while visiting my future Father in Law - there was parking available for £1 which was handy. I think this is a good location and the staff were a credit. In our room the bathroom was newly remodeled but was very compact and seemed to be lacking an extractor fan. There were toiletries available which...

We fancied a trip to Eastbourne and looked for something affordable with the required sea view. It took a while looking at various places in the area but we came up with West Rocks Hotel. I am glad we did! Situated in a prime position on the front between the bandstand and a tower the hotel was already ticking boxes....

Stayed one night in deluxe room - expensive but lovely sea views. Room was quite big and comfy but could do with extras like hairdryer, mini fridge to make it 4*. Staff really friendly and helpful. Nice bar - quite small but wasn't busy when we were there. Very good breakfast but only served until 9.30am, which is a bit...
