Great location, deluxe rooms very datedMy partner and I stayed here twice in three weeks. We know Brighton well and The Ship is in a great location, and that bit cheaper than most of the other seafront hotels. Both times I booked a 'deluxe' sea view room. The first room was much larger, but both rooms looked very tired and needed repair ...

Pocket Guide: 4 stars Hotels in East Sussex

East Sussex has all the hallmark ingredients of a memorable luxury break. From picturesque countryside and quaint rural villages to lively seaside towns, blessed with fine restaurants, bars and venues, there's something for everyone in this southern county. With numerous popular holiday resorts around East Sussex, there's no shortage of excellent four star hotels to stay in.

A Touch of Seaside Luxury

Since the Victorian era, the seaside towns of Sussex have been one the premier hotspots for the nation's holidaying elite. Still today, the opulent and regal influence of kings and queens remains in plain view on the seafront of various East Sussex towns. From Hastings and Eastbourne to the hub of Brighton and Hove, there's more than enough luxury to go around on the Sussex coast!

The exquisite four star hotels on Brighton seafront aren't at all hard to spot. The famous Grand Hotel is unmistakably one of the finest places to stay in the county. Look a little closer, and you'll see that the entire of Brighton's seafront is peppered with stunning four star hotels. The Hotel du Vin on sleepy Ship Street offers a uniquely styled hotel with an excellent restaurant. For something more modern, head round the corner to the Lanes and myhotel.

In Eastbourne, there's plenty of opportunity for a taste of luxury in a smaller setting. The Ravilious is a stunningly finished boutique townhouse, offering easy access to all the town's major attractions.

Rural Retreats

It's easy for the county's seaside towns to hog all the attention, but the countryside also attracts a good number of visitors each year. Between the rolling South Downs National Park and the wealth of fascinating historical attractions, there's plenty of good reasons to visit. With so many exquisite four star hotels, though, it can be tempting to do nothing but relax.

Claverton Country House Hotel is an Edwardian building and four star hotel in the charming town of Battle, the famous site of the 1066 Battle of Hastings. The charming house features a pretty garden and koi pond, making it the ideal choice for a rural East Sussex wedding.

A little deeper into the East Sussex countryside is the Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club, an enchanting neo-Gothic country house and four star hotel. The hotel boasts a range of spa facilities, making it the perfect place to find total relaxation. If you can manage to tear yourself away from all that indulgence for a few hours, there are plenty of beautiful walks in the surrounding area to enjoy.

Attractions Around East Sussex

When the hotels are as breath-taking as the four star hotels in East Sussex, it's understandable that guests might not make it to as many attractions as they'd expected. However, with so much to see and do around the county, it's well worth getting out to one or two.

The county's main cultural allure is its historical roots, which are evident in towns everywhere. Lewes Castle offers a fascinating interest into region's past. Equally, the picturesque village of Rye, and the nearby battlements, tell an interesting story of defence in the times of the Norman Conquest.
