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.
