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.

Middle of the road hotel

Rather bland in decor and food. Safe if you like all white and grey decor. Lack of carpets in some public areas and a bar more like a waiting room. Our room was large but only part of the Windows woul... more

DEar 18golfer, Thank you for taking the time and reviewing your stay here at the Best Western York House Hotel. I'm delighted to read you had an enjoyable one night stay with us, found the room to your liking and well worth the little upgrade charge. The room you stayed in is a Deluxe four poster bedroom, we only have a couple of rooms with this specification but they are definitely the best rooms in the Hotel, all with stunning seaviews, four poster bedroom, Jacuzzi bath and small little touches like your own little espresso machine in the room. I'm also glad you found our food offering both at Dinner and Breakfast to your liking, we do try to source as many items as locally as possible and it's great to have this kind of feedback. The Team and I look forward on welcoming you again in the near future. Kind regards, William

Shoal of grey fish

Good position on seafront, but many rooms at rear, and no double glazing to cut out very early morning deliveries. Staff very good, and mostly young. The dining room manager could learn to smile! Room... more

YHHManagement, General Manager at Best Western York House Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Megan, Thank you for taking the time to review us. Apologies that we didn't impress this time around. Pleased that you found the staff to be very good - surprising to hear the comments about our Restaurant manager as usually they are much more positive and he generally receives a lot of praise. Just to clarify, the majority of rear facing rooms are indeed double glazed. Due to local council laws we are still restricted from being able to install on the front / side facing windows. I'd like to take the opportunity to apologise for the isolated incident and disturbance. I can assure you that all locks and doors are to the same standard are very secure. The issue was due to a reception admin error which has been discussed with the Reception Manager and extra training / guidance provided to ensure it remains an isolated incident as we understand security & privacy is absolute paramount. I have also discussed your comments relating to the food served with the Head Chef. Usually guests enjoy their Dinner experience with us and when the Duty Manager did the quality checks on your tables all was well. We encourage all guests to provide us with feedback at the time as the team are very responsive and love the opportunity to put things right. Thanks again for your feedback, If you are thinking of staying in Eastbourne again please do get in touch with me directly: manager@yorkhousehotel.co.uk as i'd be more than happy to arrange your next reservation.with us. The team and I hope to have another opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards, Stuart Anderson
