Score from 425 reviews Good
The room space was excellent as was all support facilities.
The shelf over the sink is in a poor position.
everthing as it a birthday celebration we had a meal for 11 people in the restrarant which was superb the staff couldn't do enoth for us
The views from the front of the hotel are stunning. Ask for a room facing the sea. Hotel staff are polite and plentiful.
this is by far the most comfortable and friendly hotel in Eastbourne. I got a free upgrade, food excellent, staff very friendly. easy parking.....which is a big thing un Eastbourne
nothing..... apart from slippy bathroom floor.
A good old-fashioned hotel, very comfortable, pleasant surroundings and the afternoon tea is a speciality.
Superb location and sea views.
I had booked a single room and was given a free upgrade to a double on arrival. Lovely ambience, quieter than expected.
I requested tea at breakfast but was brought a pot of coffee instead. Meals more expensive than expected.
Double bed of 4'6" was not comfortableor roomy
We were upgraded to a seaview room. What a treat! Room spacious and plenty of space to put clothes away and hang things up. Beds very comfortable. Bathroom good. Wonderful location and own car park a real bonus. Staff very friendly and helpful.
I ordered guinea fowl for dinner which was really chicken. Didn't matter as it was tasty and food nicely presented and plentiful.
Beds and bedding good. Bathroom nicely refurbished except for the 1950s bolt on the door which didn't lock.
Lack of understanding by reception staff when we arrived that elderly people may find difficulty in climbing the steps from reception to the main foyer and even when told, they didn't tell us there was an alternative lift which would also avoid the steps in the corridors of the third floor. That is worrying considering the average age of the clientele. It was a bit like entering a time warp. Have dedicated staff for tables at breakfast, so that they know what has been done and not. Considering we were one of the first down, so not busy, they forgot to ask about a cooked breakfast, despite being attended to by at least three different staff members.
Built in the grand style of old seaside hotels, this hotel manages to avoid that run-down, tired look that many like it have. I'd put this down to the excellent, friendly staff, who really seem to know what they're doing. The whole place is clean and comfortable and there was little to complain about. Breakfast was excellent - high quality bacon ad sausages. Although it's a little way out of town, the location away from the main road makes it nice and quiet.
One or two minor points: The lifts are small - really two persons only and the stairs are rather convoluted. Nice to have two pillows, but they're a bit hard.
Excellent seaside position in quite the best part of eastbourne a good way from the fish and chip , kiss me quick pier area. Wonderful walks. A genteel hotel ...twenties thirtees style ...most comfortable with brand new bedrooms.
We like to stay at the Hydro and have done so over last six or seven years.It has a good location and parking is not a problem.Staff have always been pleasant and helpful. We plan to return sometime.
The "sea view" room was disappointing. There are two steps up to the bathroom which are a problem to the elderly especially in the night. The windows had to be closed as pigeons took up residence on the window sills and adjacent ledges at dusk and were very noisy.
Theatmosphere and presentation in the hotel. Although only partaking in breakfast we enjoyed it with more than adequate variations and thoughtful staff looking after us.
We originaly stayed at the Hydro some 20 years ago at our sons Wedding. We regularly visit his family at Eastbourne and previously used hotels nearer the town centre which give parking problems. We thoght that The Hydro would aleviate this but unfortunately not. Despite this we had an enjoyable stay and were well looked after by your well trained staff.
Good room, great sea view. Character building. Parking limited but plenty if space in local street. Reception staff helpful.
Breakfast staff poor service. Some general decor dated and tired. Noise from ballroom delayed sleep room 222. Conservatory menu limited. Lighting in lounge poor giving a gloomy feel. The hotel style will only attract the older customer. Lots of potential to keep the clasical style but to attract all ages if modernised.
Spaciousness and comfort
Excellent in many ways. Disabled facilities mixed. Staff friendly and courteous.
Car parking for disabled limited. Blue badge needs enforcing. Room good but for me 2 steps to bathroom
The single rooms allocated to us. Far too small. Could not even walk round the bed to get into it. Totally unsatisfactory.
staff hospitality especially at breakfast. Sea view. Room facilities
there was some work going on with room renovation but we were warned about it and it did not really affect us
Ideal for the break we wanted. Attentive staff, comfortable lounges and conservatory. Plenty of space to sit both in and out side. Good situation on edge of town.
Hotel location, good parking, the ambience and general comfort. Excellent rear garden.
The bar meals were quite expensive and "restaurant" type rather than plainer bar meals. Quite different from our last visit in 2013.
View from bedroom Excellent food and service Quietness
Rather dark seating areas but the weather was good so we were out most of the time
Wonderful hotel. Great ambiance. Staff friendly and welcoming. Such a pleasant change from the anonymous atmosphere in any 'chain' hotel group or the 'bucket and spade' market. Can thoroughly recommend the Hydro to anyone wanting a relaxing, civilised break by the coast.
A little above our normal price level but 'Hey! You get what you pay for.' So no hard feelings on that score.
Dinner - always good although the service can be a little rushed at times. The freshly cooked to order breakfast; excellent. Staff are friendly and efficient.
Have stayed here many times but our rooms were on the third floor, much prefer the first and second floors. I can never get the wifi to work when I stay here.
Quiet room &excellent breakfast
Rather bouncy bed & awkward bathroom because of shower screen
