Our charming hotel offers the perfect stop for groups, couples and families in search of a relaxing coastal holiday or adventurous getaway.

The New Wilmington is an independent AA 3 star hotel located in Eastbourne since the 1920’s. We pride ourselves on the ability to move with the times while keeping to traditional values and strongly believe our passion for service and quality has established the New Wilmington as one of the most well regarded hotels in the area.

With Eastbourne’s award winning seafront, theatres and art gallery just a 2 minute stroll; guests have the ideal location to explore Eastbourne during the day and the evening.

A selection of Economy, Standard, Standard Plus and Superior Rooms, guests have an option to suit any budget. Optional upgrades like sparkling wine on arrival, chocolates or fresh flowers can be arranged for that special occasion and no request is too much for our staff.

We believe the thoughtful touches make the perfect stay and with this sentiment our staff consistently set the level of service above expectations. Members of staff regularly receive special praise on review websites such as TripAdvisor. The New Wilmington is one of Eastbourne’s most highly rated hotels and has been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for two years in a row.

Our head chef changes the menu on a daily basis to allow us to offer fresh seasonal cuisine and we try to source our ingredients locally where possible. With prior warning the New Wilmington will do everything possible to cater for those with special dietary requirements as well as prepare packed lunches for those fun packed daytrips. To get you started in the morning, you can look forward to a full English or continental breakfast along with a variety of drinks including specialty teas and coffees.

If a more social environment is desired; our modern bar is a place where you can unwind with a glass of wine or maybe even a cocktail or two. Those in search of a little extra fun will love our regular evening entertainment, which promises a great night for the whole family.

    “Clean, friendly, convenient, room decor dated”

    Clean, central location, very friendly staff. My room would never have been put on the website as it was very dated which was disappointing as I'd expected a room looking like the pictures on the website.
