Whilst our doors are currently closed, we are taking room reservations from 1st May onwards. Please use the 'Book Now' button at the top of this page to search availability.
As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is touching the lives of each and every one of us. The wellbeing of our employees and guests is very much at the forefront of our minds at this time and accordingly, in-line with Government advice and their initiative to
“Stay at Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives”,
we have made the emotional decision to temporarily close our Hotels until we are advised it is wise to re-open.
We fully appreciate this is hugely disappointing for all concerned, especially for those who were planning to celebrate a special occasion with us or to have a well-earned break.
Being an independent and charity-owned Company, our next steps need to be carefully planned to ensure that we come through these daunting times as swiftly and cleanly as we are able. To this end, we will re-open our doors as soon as it is safe to do so.
If you have an existing booking in the coming weeks, our teams will be in touch shortly, or alternatively please e-mail your selected Hotel directly. Vouchers expiring at this time will be automatically extended by 3 months.
Until then, our very best wishes and thank you to all for your continued support throughout these troubling days.

Visit the only 5 star seaside resort hotel in England
Affectionately known as The White Palace, the Grand Hotel Eastbourne commands breathtaking views of the sea and the dramatic cliffs at Beachy Head. Grand by name but not by nature, The Grand Hotel in Eastbourne is not only the only 5 star luxury hotel to be found in an English seaside town, we’re also one of the friendliest. Find out why we're the natural destination for anyone looking for luxury hotels in Eastbourne.
A family feel
Setting the standard for hotels in Eastbourne and indeed the entire South Coast, The Grand is a landmark on the Eastbourne seafront, where we have been looking after generations of returning happy families, and we often welcome back parents, who first stayed with us as youngsters, checking in with children or grandchildren of their own. The Grand stands out amongst other Eastbourne hotels being only a short walk from the Pier in one direction, and the glorious Sussex downs in the other, so we are ideally located for exploring this charming corner of East Sussex.
The perfect setting for business or pleasure
Few hotels offer such a complete range of leisure facilities including a luxury outdoor swimming pool, special holiday packages for children and a choice of dining options that includes arguably the finest gourmet restaurant on the entire south coast. And even though we do like to be beside the seaside, we also know how to look after business people as well with a wide range of superb conference venue and business facilities, and no little expertise built up over many years. However, we believe it’s our unique blend of friendly service that’s just as important for bringing families, business people, young romantics and anniversary couples back to The Grand Hotel time and time again. Many of our staff have been with us for ten or twenty years or more. It’s as if they find The Grand just as hard to leave as our guests do.
