Stay in the heart of Eastbourne Excellent location – show map

Overlooking the beach and within easy walking distance of the town center and pier, this AA 4-star character property has been welcoming guests to Eastbourne for over 170 years.

One of Eastbourne’s original old ‘sea houses’, the dog-friendly Royal has recently undergone a complete renovation to provide comfortable, modern accommodations with free Wi-Fi throughout and flat-screen TVs. The building’s original features have been retained. Bathrooms feature heated towel rails, shaver points, fluffy white towels and complimentary Duck Island toiletries.

Start each day with a healthy, fresh breakfast in the airy breakfast room. Choose from real ground coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, a selection of organic yogurts, cereals, homemade breads and jams. No English breakfasts are served. Soy milk is available.

This is our guests' favorite part of Eastbourne, according to independent reviews.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.6 for a two-person trip.

  • Do you offer guests with dogs a dog sitting service ?

    Yes we do but it’s best to ring us to discuss before you book your stay as it depends on size of dog(s), length of time they’ll be left, etc.. Generally it’s easy to arrange.

At The Royal we offer personalised service and attention to all our guests. You will never feel that you are just a booking number. We know the local area and can recommend areas for sightseeing, walking, restaurants, pubs, museums and galleries. We are a small adults-only, eco-friendly hotel.

The Royal is personally run and offers a warm welcome to your four-legged friends. We positively love having dogs to stay and can recommend local dog friendly pubs and eateries. Breakfasts are all suitable for vegetarians and vegan fare is always available. We do not serve meat or fish.

The Royal is siutated directly on the seafront almost opposite the pier, in the centre of Eastbourne. It is an easy level walk to a multitude of local attractions, restaurants, and much more. The beach is only a few yards away, just across the road. Most rooms offer spectacular sea views.
