Fantastic staff especially the breakfast team Rashid and Maggie. Great hotel with the sea view option and great for walks and seeing local attractions. Plenty of restaurant choices outside. Overall great hotel but please note hotel is not step free access if you have a pushchair/pram.

The hotel have an amazing architecture and is inches away from the beach. According with the new regulations regarding Covid19, our room was sanitised prior to our arrival. All items were sealed with plastic with a message that this object was sanitised accordingly. The staff was very friendly. We needed to allocate our luggage before and after our stay and they reserved a space for us to leave it for the day. If you need a place to stay in Eastbourne, this is definitely THE PLACE!

Booked two double rooms, price band up from the standard rooms, still pricey for a 1 night stay, but was a treat. Our room was spacious, bed and bathroom clean, slight stains on carpet and walls, paintwork very scuffed. Second room for my daughter and her partner, other end of corridor to ours, I did ask to be located as close as possible. This room was tiny, also we had booked in their dog, 'not a lot of room to swing a cat', let along have a dog in there. The rooms were on the 3rd floor, not ideal for the dog to pop out to do his business. No toiletries were available either. As one not to complain, i waited until check out and mentioned to the receptionist who spoke with a very strong foreign accent that i was not happy with the rooms. She said, we were allocated what they had available, untrue as lots of empty rooms on our floor, and because i had put the 2nd room in my daughters name, they were not put together even thou on the booking they have the same number and i had put a request in. She said, to contact customer services, if i am not happy. In other words, she is not interested.

Just had a weekend at the Cavendish. So nostalgic to be there again. A little shabby but Loads of hot water, comfy bed and pristine towels. All the staff were so attentive working very hard to keep us safe. Such a treat to be there after a long six months in London
