A stay at The Grand Hotel

As I arrived at The Grand Hotel Eastbourne to be welcomed by the uniformed door staff and ushered into the hotel’s vast entrance hall, I couldn’t help but think they made hotels on a larger scale in days gone by. To arrive at this impressive hotel is to step back in time to Victorian times and the heyday of the British seaside resort.

This vast 152-bedroom hotel, which claims to be Britain’s only five-star seaside hotel, was built in 1875 and its gleaming white building has taken pride of place on Eastbourne’s seafront ever since. It is one of those places which is a destination in itself and certainly lives up to its name, being unmissable the moment you arrive in this pretty coastal resort.
