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 Jo H, Thank you for sharing your review of your recent stay here at the Best Western York House Hotel. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay in room 194 one of our four poster bedrooms, we only have 3 of this types of rooms and all are very spacious rooms, with Jacuzzi baths and all are seaviews and few other little touches like your own little espresso machine, thank you for bringing to our attention the little issue with the size of the dressing gowns, we will keep it in mind when ordering some more. I'm happy you found the breakfast to your liking, we do try to source as many local products as possible and I'm glad you found it of high quality. We do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back here in Eastbourne in the near future. Kind regards, William

YHHManagement, General Manager at Best Western York House Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Kenneth R, Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences on your recent stay with us here at the Best Western York House Hotel Eastbourne. According to our records your reservation was booked through a third party agent so when the receptionist stated central reservations had not passed on the request, this wasn't completely accurate so apologies for that. The issue was we didn't receive the request at all from the agent you booked with. When we did our courtesy call to you 10 minutes after check-in and we offered a complimentary upgrade to meet your request to enhance your comfort further. You declined to transfer rooms stating you'd already unpacked which we respected. Apologies for the mix up in communication regarding the maintenance works and opening times of the restaurant. At the time of the stay the hotel was having maintenance works completed in the kitchen whilst we did plan for the kitchen to be back in service on the Tuesday evening, these works over run and the kitchen had to remain closed. The Duty Manager called you in the afternoon and explained the change of plan but explained the restaurant would be back open the next day (Wednesday), we booked you a table at your request and the Duty Manager provided complimentary drinks voucher as a gesture for the inconvenience. We usually receive great praise for our attentive, friendly and professional staff and I can only apologise that due to the circumstances that occurred this was not the image perceived. When you choose to visit Eastbourne again please feel free to contact me directly on: manager@yorkhousehotel.co.uk and I'd be happy to arrange your next reservation with us. Kind regards, Stuart Anderson
