The Grand Hotel

A dazzling Victorian hotel, The Grand Hotel Eastbourne stands on the seafront enjoying a stunning outlook over the English Channel and the cliffs of Beachy Head. A choice of rooms and suites, sheltered terraces, good food and excellent spa facilities all amount to a quintessential English seaside experience with added panache in this delightful hotel, affectionately called ’The White Palace’.

The legacy of the Victorian era with expansive rooms and bold architecture is evident at The Grand Hotel Eastbourne, but with a new youthful appeal with timeless décor and state-of-the-art facilities.

Afternoon Tea in the lounge is something of an institution, undeniably delicious and in fabulous surroundings. Enjoy an invigorating coastal walk to Seven Sisters cliffs or a round of golf at Royal Eastbourne Golf Club in the South Downs. Return to The Grand Hotel Eastbourne and dine in the Mirabelle Restaurant where imaginative dishes are served accompanied by some of the world’s finest wines.
