Woke up to breathtaking views of the sea. Stayed in a lovely room that was very clean, with beautiful furniture. Excellent location - right by the seafront and shops are within easy reach. Most importantly, very warm and friendly owner who even gave me tips on where to eat, which places to explore, and what events are on. I am happy to have found my home away from home when in Eastbourne.

This is a wonderful little hotel right on Eastbourne seafront. Chosen principally as it is dog friendly and we wanted to take our little cavapoo. Eddie and Boris made us feel very much at home. Very comfortable room with little sitting area. All very clean and with fresh flowers in room. Breakfast is of the continental variety but a very good choice. Cereal (various types) bread, croissant, crumpets, pan o chocolate. Selection of home made preserves and home made yogurt and Musli (delicious). Cheese and freshly squeezed orange juice. Very near pier and local shops are within walking distance. Found some very nice pubs/restaurants nearby. Highly recommend.

we have been coming to the royal hotel for the last 12 years. We are always greeted warmly by eddie. We had room 2 which has a lovely view of the pier and the sea. We had everything we needed in our room toiletries, tea, coffee biscuits. Breakfast is continental which consists of homemade breads, crumpets, jams, fruit, cereals and yoghurts. There is always a good supply of tea and coffee served by eddy. We will be retuning again hopefully this year

We were very glad to hear when the Royal re-opened as we had missed our visit earlier this year due to lockdown. There are plenty of good COVID secure measures in place, and we felt very safe during our stay. Guests can now have their breakfasts delivered to their rooms, left outside the door, and room cleaning is on request. The Royal is spotless as always, and we were even told that rooms are left empty for 2-4 days between guests. My most favorite thing is the sea view from our room, and that hasn't changed at all! Lovely fresh sea breeze wafting in and the sound of the waves and seagulls, you can't beat it. Most of the shops and pubs in the area are now open, with social distancing in place as expected, and so we enjoyed our relaxing break as always. We walked up to Beachy Head one day - glorious! Highly recommended.
