Stay at a bright, modern and conveniently-located hotel, with Eastbourne Pier, Beachy Head and the train station within easy reach - breakfast included

Soaring above Eastbourne’s seafront, the View Hotel is situated right on the beach and a short, leisurely stroll from the pier. From its prime position on the main promenade, views stretch out over the English Channel and beyond. Each of its air-conditioned bedrooms is beautifully attired with modern furnishings and en-suite bathrooms that make clever use of space; if you’re lucky enough to snag a room at the front, you’re guaranteed views of the sea.

The atmospheric vistas continue in the hotel’s restaurant and bar areas (you can clearly see how the hotel got its name). In the restaurant, enjoy hearty full English breakfasts and made-to-order options, or dine on British classics in the evening. The hotel’s friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand to recommend activities during your stay, whether you’re keen for a day at the beach with a fish and chips supper or wanting to head further afield. Take a leisurely boat cruise, or you could browse the Victorian streets of Little Chelsea, packed with independent boutiques. Alternatively, lace up your walking shoes and opt for a bracing excursion along the coastline, to take in the views from scenic stops like Beachy Head.
