The Grand Hotel, Eastbourne – the most perfect, quintessentially British hotel in the whole of the United Kingdom…
Turn back the clocks to November, you would never have guessed it was almost Christmas as I took a morning dip in the heated outdoor swimming pool!
This hotel oozes with luxury, the staff extremely attentive and polite – you will feel like you’ve gone back in time and leave feeling one million dollars. The level of service was apparent immediately as we stepped through the entrance where we were so kindly greeted and relieved of our luggage.
We were upgraded to a stunning executive suite with a dreamy sea view. The room was spacious, light, airy; the bed was the comfiest I have ever laid in and the bedding as soft as silk.
Breakfast was to die for – platters of delicious smoked salmon, locally sourced sausages, bacon, freshly baked bread. There are raving reviews about the three restaurants at The Grand – perfect for afternoon tea, a special occasion, a Sunday Roast after a breezy beach walk… who could resist these views!
Be sure to book a sea view room, prices are inflated during the summer months but one can find themselves a competitive offer during the winter.
