Easy does it in Eastbourne.

The Best Western York House Hotel enjoys a relaxed, laid-back seafront location. Just 20 yards from the sea and a few hundred yards from the pier, this is a lovely pet-friendly hotel in Eastbourne. You're also a pleasant stroll away from the town centre, so you can enjoy everything this delightful resort has to offer.

With the South Coast literally on your doorstep, there's lots to see and do around Eastbourne. Go fishing from the pier, take walks with your dog along Beachy Head, explore the Sussex Downs or simply stroll along the stunning 4-mile promenade right outside the hotel. The ideal seafront location makes this fantastic hotel in Eastbourne perfect for both weddings and business conferences.

A little further afield, history buffs might appreciate the nearby town of Hastings - scene of the famous battle nearly a thousand years ago. Or head in the opposite direction for the excitement of cosmopolitan Brighton.

This fabulous seafront hotel in Eastbourne offers so much, you might have trouble fitting it all in. Or you could just not bother trying and spend your time relaxing by the indoor fun pool instead. At the Best Western York House Hotel, the choice is always yours.

Owner Response
Stuart Anderson, General Manager at Best Western York House Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Karen, I’m sorry to hear that you hadn’t booked a time slot to use our pool during your stay. We don’t claim to have any spa facilities other than an indoor swimming pool. Like any venue with these facilities we had to implement new safety measures following the lockdown which were advertised on our website’s homepage at the time and via the online check-in emails which are sent out using the email address provided to us when booking. It’s disappointing that at a time when our livelihoods and industry is on its knees because of the restrictions imposed upon us you felt the need to award us with a one bubble review due to something that is out of our control. With respect, if you plan to stay at a hotel whilst there is a pandemic, it would be advisable to check what measures may have been implemented and what services might have been limited to keep guests safe. Kind regards,

Great stay during these difficult times
