Where to Stay in Eastbourne - Edwardian Hotels, Comfortable Apartments, and Cozy B&Bs

Find a place to stay

Most accommodation in Eastbourne places you close to the beach. Whether you choose an upscale suite in an Edwardian hotel or a simple room in a homey B&B, you will almost certainly have the option of sea views. Staying in an apartment offers families and couples the chance to feel at home while away from home.



From luxurious to budget friendly, Eastbourne has excellent hotels, most of which offer scenic views over the water. The high-end hotels hug the shoreline either side of Eastbourne Pier, on Marine Parade and King Edward's Parade. Many of them date back to the Edwardian era of the early 20th century.


You can stay in opulent surroundings that'll bring to mind the late Victorian and Edwardian eras, when this seaside resort town was a magnet for the rich and famous. Many hotels offer rejuvenating spa treatments, and you can lay your head down in a modern room equipped with flat-screen TVs and WiFi.
