Visit the only 5 star hotel on the British coast

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 on the British coastline, 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.
