Explore Hotel

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 pool instead. At the Best Western York House Hotel, the choice is always yours.

Dear Jay, Thank you for taking the time to feedback your recent experiences at the Best Western York House Hotel Eastbourne from your second visit to us. I am really happy you enjoyed the room located on the sea front and that the price and service met expectations. Obviously the comment regarding service being "alright" is something I will feedback to the team as we don't aim to be "alright". Please feel free to drop me a line directly or email me: manager@yorkhousehotel.co.uk. Any further feedback into the above would be most appreciated. It is great to hear that this was your second visit and that you would most likely revisit the hotel. The team and I do hope you give us another opportunity the next time your visiting Eastbourne. Kind regards, Stuart Anderson General Manager
