About us

Eastbourne, fondly known as the Sunshine Coast, is a quiet Victorian seaside holiday town, with a friendly atmosphere, gorgeous seafront, rolling South Downs and some of the sunniest weather in the country. Quite Simply, if you are looking for a UK seaside stay on the Sussex Coast, an Eastbourne Hotel makes for a great getaway.

Here at the independent and family run Devonshire Park Hotel Eastbourne, we excel in making our guests feel comfortable. Want a room with a view? No problem. Ideas for places to visit in Sussex? We have dozens. Fancy an alternative holiday walking the Sussex Downs? We know the best routes. Advice on the best Eastbourne Restaurants? Well, you don’t even have to leave the premises!

Having successfully run the Devonshire Park Hotel Eastbourne since 2001, we probably have the answer to any query, concern or whim you might have. The hotel’s boutique size means we can combine a seaside holiday with Sussex country house hotel luxury, the best personal service and a guaranteed relaxing stay.

But as much as we excel at making your stay as comfortable as possible, we can’t take credit for the area’s attractions. Within walking distance of the hotel are the Devonshire Park Lawn Tennis Club, the Towner Gallery, Congress and Devonshire Park Theatres, the Winter Garden, the Town Centre, the Western Lawns, Beachy Head and Eastbourne Seafront - Sport, culture and nature are but a few steps away.

Eastbourne is also an ideal base for day trips to such Historic Sussex towns as Battle, Hasting and Rye with their enchanting cobbled streets, medieval churches and beautifully preserved Tudor and Georgian Houses. Or for a more lively environment take a trip to Brighton and enjoy the mix of iconic attractions, famed nightlife, funky arts, culture and year round festivals. Alternatively, pack your Golf Clubs and enjoy a round on one of the many Eastbourne and Sussex Golf Courses.

The AA, who also know a thing or two about Eastbourne Hotels, describes us as “A handsome family-run hotel handily placed for the seafront and theatres. Attractively furnished rooms are spacious and comfortable; many boast king-sized beds and all are equipped with WiFi and satellite TV. Guests can relax in the well-presented lounges, the cosy bar or, when the weather's fine, on the garden terrace.”
