Get your Christmas escape wrapped up early

It may only be August but, in our opinion, it is never too early to start getting excited for Christmas! Make sure you and your family have a fabulously festive escape this year and let us cater to your every need.

Our four-night package starts on Saturday 23 December with an afternoon tea in the lounges accompanied by Shelley Van Loen and the Palm Court Strings, then in the evening you will enjoy a Champagne reception with a chance to meet the hotel’s managers and a ‘Sussex by the Sea’ themed dinner, accompanied by a live performance from the Simon Goodwin Jazz Band.

On Christmas Eve, a coach will be making regular trips into the town centre for your last-minute shopping needs and our cellar master will be offering a tour of our cellars, complete with a gin tasting experience.

Then, you can enjoy a taste of Scandinavia with a Julbord lunch followed by an hour of bliss in our health club and a fun ‘General Manager’s Quiz’ in the afternoon. Dinner will be accompanied by the stunning sounds of a festive choir in the Great Hall, followed by music from dance band ‘Visage’.

Christmas Day begins with a hearty English breakfast and a visit from Father Christmas himself with gifts for guests of all ages. After breakfast, take a stroll down to the Eastbourne Bandstand for the traditional Christmas Day concert before sitting down to a ‘Grand’ Christmas Day buffet for lunch.

Later, you’ll be treated to a Champagne reception followed by a black-tie dinner in the Garden Restaurant with The Simon Goodwin Jazz Band.  

Boxing Day delights include indoor crazy golf, optional trip to the Devonshire Theatre for a performance of Dick Whittington (supplement applies) and a lavish lunch of suckling pig. Your evening will begin with a Champagne reception followed by a delectable gala dinner in the Garden Restaurant and a live performance from ‘Co-Stars’, who will be belting out hits from the 1960s to the modern day.

You’ll be free to enjoy breakfast and depart at your leisure on the morning of Wednesday 27 December or alternatively, why not stay another night or two and take advantage of the quiet period between Christmas and New Year? After all, you deserve it!

Our four-day festive package starts from £1,070 per person based on two sharing a deluxe double room.
