    Very friendly and efficient staff, though we did have to wait a long time for our drinks order at Sunday lunch. Excellent breakfast and afternnon tea.

    Very dark bedroom - three low wattage bulbs, one of which did not work. Too dark to read a book. Generally both the room and the common parts seemed in need of a refurb. Felt the room did not represent value for money - about the same as many B&Bs these days.

    The general atmosphere and gracious setting. Breakfast was lovely and all staff were very helpful.

    The hospitality tray in the room could have been better - I think the hotel hoped visitors would use room service instead.

    Pretty much everything!

    Despite having a strict dress code in the Mirabelle restaurant, most male diners did not observe it and nobody challenged them.

    Our room, room service, the public areas,car parking and helpful staff.

    The Grand breakfast experience was a disappointment on both mornings. The waiting time from ordering to being served was too long and the food, lukewarm, overcooked or not as ordered.This last comment, was observed at dinner as well, at several tables near us. A fault too frequently seen to be just a coincidence.

    Have to say the breakfast is nowhere near five start standard. Quality dropped in recent years. Bottled beer served out of date on consecutive days.

    Indoor/outdoor pool Location Snacks in the lounge and breakfast

    Staff in the lounge/bar gave very poor service on both evenings we stayed. Quality of room needs to improve, cleanliness and lick of paint. Bed too small. Held together by wooden planks.

    There was very little not to like, however was disappointed with the room considering the cost.

    Not a very good view from the room and the window had very thin curtains, therefore the room was quite light. Thicker curtains would be better to make the room darker.

    The staff are always so attentive, the food is excellent and the location is tops.

    Our room was without any view at all so that was disappointing. It hasn't put us off going again though!

    The whole atmosphere and the careful and friendly service by the staff.

    Our bedroom, 140, plagued by outside noise from a motor, which went on all night.

    The hotel is in a beautiful building in a great location in Eastbourne. We have stayed a number of times and never been disappointed. There is of course always room for a little bit of tlc in a vast complex like this, but on the whole the hotel is being kept very well. The bedrooms are large and airy and the furnishings good. We are looking forward to our next stay.

    Friendly, helpful, attentive service. Delicious food, beautifully presented. Comfortable, airy, peaceful room with a good view. A truly Grand hotel, worthy of its name.

    The shower didn't have much pressure. Sometimes slow to get through to reception.

    Free parking. Ambience. Excellent staff and convenient location. Good buffet breakfast. Comfortable and airy rooms.

    Electric lighting in our room was too low in power to read easily when curtains were pulled at night time. Needed to be a contortionist to reach toilet roll holder. Toilet kept running for too long after flushing.

    The ambiance of the main areas. It's location. It's facilities. Parking included.

    A guest deluxe room only having a double bed, even Premier Inns have king size beds. The breakfast left a lot to be desired,my husband couldn't find any cereals and no one around to ask. All the teapots leaked all over a pristine white cloth. Looked dreadful. Toast came up like luke warm bread, had to request new toast. Mixed up smoked bacon on my plate instead of my husbands. Spent most of what should have been a relaxing breakfast trying to find staff to put thing right. Very disappointed.

    Our second stay at this lovely hotel with excellent, attentive and extremely helpful staff. We had a beautiful room with views across the sea and a delicious breakfast both mornings. The purpose of our trip was to attend our godaughters' wedding in Eastbourne and our mini break was perfect from start to finish. Mick and Ruth Martin, West Wickham.

    Hotel atmosphere and equipment is beautiful. Staff is very professional and kind. Good facilities such as spa and outdoor pool. Very good location and high quality food and services.

    I was disappointed they ran out of croissants before ten and didn't refill them even if the breakfast was served until 10.30am. I also didn't like the view to some kind of wall with a generator that was quite noisy all night. And the biggest surprise was no air condition in the room, it was boiling.

    We loved being by the sea, the waking and staying in a very special environment.

    The seagulls. As it was very hot the windows had to be open at night and the seagulls were a nuisance (very noisy).

    The outdoor pool facilities were great. Health centre staff very friendly and helpful. Room service and childrens menu excellent

    Staff on reception could have been a lot more friendly and less stuffy/aloof. Rooms hot no air conditioning which is surprising for top rated hotel Dated decor in parts

    - it was much hotter inside the room than outside; - separate taps in bathroom; - our room smelt horribly; - a little bit pretentious and invasive service

    The service was second to none. Nothing was too much trouble for anyone.

    The only thing was the room was a little bit dated , however this didn't detract from the stay.
