                good hotel The rooms didn't look like the pictures as advertised on Expedia. There was so much noise at night because of works being done outside of the hotel building that they had to reduce the price as compensation. The room furniture was a bit outdated and coffee was terrible. Overall, the staff were welcoming ...

                      Thanks to its stunning coastal location, East Sussex has many beach hotels to choose from, predominantly in the traditional seaside towns of Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. The hotels range from luxury five star grand hotels to smaller, more intimate guesthouses and attract a variety of visitors including families on beach holidays, young couples on romantic breaks, and older couples touring the area.

                      Beach Hotels in East Sussex

                      Many of the beach hotels in the East Sussex area are the grand Victorian hotels built during the peak of the seaside holiday in the 1800s. These grand, ornate buildings are usually as close to the sands as you can get and offer luxury rooms with sea views - often with balconies. These hotels also tend to have their own restaurants and bars so you can choose to dine in or go out into the town.

                      Other beach hotels in the region fall into the townhouse hotel category. These are usually smaller and more intimate and range between the more luxurious boutique hotels and smart guesthouses. In both you can often enjoy a sea view and breakfast included.

                      Seaside Activities in East Sussex

                      Whether you want to stroll along the promenades or visit the iconic piers at Brighton, Hastings and Eastbourne, there's plenty to do beside the seaside in East Sussex. The beaches themselves offer hours of fun playing in the sand and even sunbathing. Sporty holidaymakers can try their hand at a spot of surfing or body boarding, or hike their way along the beaches and clifftop trails.

                      Those looking for a more relaxed atmosphere could take afternoon tea in one of the many hotels or enjoy that traditional British seaside meal of fish and chips.

                      East Sussex has a huge range of beach hotels for visitors to choose from, no matter if you're looking for some peaceful relaxation or hoping to take in everything the South Coast has to offer. Whether you're looking for that grand Victorian seaside experience, the quirkiness of a boutique hotel or the quaint feeling of a guest house with a sea view, East Sussex can cater for you.
