The Grand Hotel, with its appearance of a magnificent white palace, is set back slightly from the elegant promenade in Eastbourne, in its own gardens.

The exterior promises 'grand' and indeed visitors are not disappointed when presented with a truly grand and spacious foyer from which gracious lounges, cocktail bar and Garden Restaurant are situated. Despite the obvious grandeur, the decorations and furnishings are welcoming and comfortable.

This elegant property's charm extends to the individual and warm attention provided by the staff who have a great sense of pride and care both for the guests and the hotel.

The Grand Hotel has 152 bedrooms complete with Molton Brown toiletries, Nespresso machines, luxury bathrobes and slippers, 24 hour room service and en-suite bathroom. Room types range from Deluxe Bedrooms to the magnificent Penthouse and Presidential Suites with stunning seaviews. 

Both award-winning restaurants at the Grand are hugely admired by both visitors and guides, featuring traditional grill menus in the Garden and modern European cuisine in the newly refurbished Mirabelle fine dining restaurant.
