short breakGood location although loud music from the bandstand fortunately finished at 9.30pm. Very pleasant walk along the promenade to the pier. Good breakfast although they could have provided more fresh fruit instead of tinned. Liked the off-street parking for £1 a day. Very relaxing stay

Grand Old LadyThe Queens Hotel is a wonderful grand old lady that is in need of a bit of TLC. However we absolutely loved our stay here in room 406 which had a fantastic view of the pier and ocean. The room was a bit tired but in some ways this added to the magic of staying at such a boutique hotel. As others ...

Pocket Guide: 3 stars Hotels in East Sussex

Home to miles of stunning Heritage Coast, dozens of picturesque villages and historic towns, and some of the United Kingdom's finest attractions, East Sussex makes for a spectacular holiday destination. Compounding the attractiveness of this southern county is its close proximity to London, meaning getting there couldn't be easier. Add in to the mix the county's impressive range of excellent three star hotels, and it's easy to see why East Sussex is among the county's premier holiday destinations.

3 Star Hotels at the Seaside

Among the charms of East Sussex is its medley of Victorian seaside resorts. Whether your idea of an ideal seaside break involves cream teas and museums or bars and bikinis, there's sure to be somewhere along the coast to keep you happy.

The most naturally beautiful part of the county's coastline is towards the east. The famous Seven Sisters are popular with keen walkers, providing dramatic views in every direction. The Avondale in Seaford offers affordable three star accommodation at one end of the cliffs. At the other, visitors can choose from any number of historic and welcoming hotels and guesthouses in Eastbourne.

If art and culture is more your scene, the seaside town of Brighton is also packed with exquisite three star hotels and guesthouses. From the Pavilion and Dome to the Theatre Royal and the myriad of pop-up galleries in North Laine, there's no shortage of cultural entertainment. The town is also full of great places to eat and drink.

The County Town

The county town of East Sussex is Lewes, offering an attractive balance of history, natural beauty and a friendly ambience. The high street is lined with glorious period architecture and the rolling Sussex Downs National Park can often be spotted between buildings.

There's also plenty to see and do in Lewes. From the views atop the 11th century castle to the loyal terrace sing-alongs of the local non-league football team, visitors won't be left wanting for entertainment.

The White Hart Hotel offers an elegant three star accommodation option in the centre of town. Guests are treated to an indoor pool and on-site restaurant.

East Sussex Attractions

Whether you're staying in one of the county's towns or in one of the many rural hotels in East Sussex, you're never far from some great attractions. Thanks to its steady influx of visitors throughout the year, East Sussex is filled with diverse and fascinating things to see and do.

As mentioned, the hub for cultural attractions is Brighton, on the south coast. The town's full of theatres and concert venues, with something on every night of the week. There's also an impressive venue down the road in sunny Bexhill.

If you're after an attraction to keep the kids out of trouble, head into the countryside. Ashdown Forest is not only an excellent place to walk, it's also home to a Llama Park. As well as Llamas, visitors can meet alpacas, Andalusian horses and plenty of other exciting critters!

As you'd imagine, East Sussex is also home to a number of National Trust properties. From the grandeur of Sheffield Park Garden to the modest simplicity of Virginia Woolf's home, once again, there's something for everyone.
