Grand Hotel


The most luxurious of hotels in Eastbourne.

The finest 5 Star hotel by the sea in Sussex, it's no wonder The Grand is often referred to as "A Palace By the Sea"…

Visit the finest 5 star seaside resort hotel in England.

Affectionately known as The White Palace, the Grand Hotel Eastbourne commands breathtaking views of the sea and the dramatic cliffs at Beachy Head. Grand by name but not by nature, The Grand Hotel in Eastbourne is not only the only 5 star luxury resort to be found in an English seaside town, we’re also one of the friendliest.

Whether staying with us as a hotel guest or just looking for a great choice when eating out in Eastbourne, you can enjoy a menu based around traditional British favourites created with a modern twist in the Garden Grill. The menus are inspired by what our chefs source locally, including fresh fish and the best produce that the surrounding Sussex farms have to offer. As well as delightful Garden Grill fayre, our Lounges will be serving Brunch and Afternoon Tea. The Garden Grill is home to breakfast, lunch and dinner and there’s always a lively buzz of conversation and a generous wine list to boot. Across the Great Hall from the Garden Grill, you’ll find the Cocktail Bar and lounge, where you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink and peruse the menu of whichever restaurant you chose to visit.

The Mirabelle Restaurant has celebrated numerous awards, accolades and critical notices from the UK’s top food writers. As well as being considered one of the finest restaurants in Eastbourne, The Independent voted the Mirabelle in the top 50 best restaurants in the UK, and it has featured regularly in the Good Food Guide for many years. The Mirabelle serves an exquisite modern European menu of seasonal specialities that play creatively with flavours and textures, and which are complemented by an extremely well-chosen wine list. Just as impressive is the elegant splendour of the beautifully furnished dining room itself, which you can enter either directly from the hotel or via its own discreet side entrance, and is a quiet haven that attracts romantic couples, small business groups and devotees of gourmet dining. Together with the Garden Grill, they represent the finest dining to be found in East Sussex.

Children are most welcome as is traditional at a seaside hotel. We provide a welcome bag full of goodies and have children menus available in the Garden Grill.

Many attractions both in the hotel and in Eastbourne have made the Grand a favourite and effortless place for families. Temporary membership of the Health Club is included for all resident guests. Indoor and outdoor heated pools, spa bath, saunas and steam room and full gym are among the facilities as well as 8 health and beauty treatment suites with trained therapists waiting to massage your stresses away or provide a beautifying facial. Many other treatments are, of course, available including hairdressing.

The Grand has 17 private dining and meeting rooms which regularly accommodate small intimate parties or international conferences. Special rooms include two semi-private balconies overlooking the famous great Hall where the BBC broadcast the programme "Grand Hotel" for many years.

The Health Club facilities include an indoor and outdoor heated pool, fully equipped gym, steam room, jacuzzi and 8 treatment rooms.

Extensive on-site parking facilities.
