The rooms and suites recall the days when hotels in East Sussex were the seaside playground of the Victorian rich and famous, and when the wealthy would descend on The Grand with entire entourages.

Check in is from 3.00pm with check out being 11.00am

We have been able to adapt this tradition to the present day by offering the height of luxury, comfort and facilities across a range of bedrooms offering outstanding Eastbourne accommodation. Our Presidential and Penthouse Suites which are noted for their stunning interior decoration, luxurious bathrooms with whirlpool baths, and best of all, large balconies with spectacular views of the coastline. Many of our rooms face onto the sea so imagine yourself throwing open your heavy drapes in the morning and being greeted by sunlight sparkling on the waves.

After all, according to records Eastbourne is the sunniest place in Britain. We have even set aside a number of dog friendly rooms for our guests who don’t want to leave their best four legged friend at home, and we’re sure an early morning “walkies” along the Eastbourne seafront is something you’ll both enjoy. Few hotels in England, or the UK for that matter, offer the discerning guest an experience as special as staying at The Grand.
