Affectionately known as The White Palace, The Grand Hotel is a dazzling
Victorian hotel on Eastbourne’s promenade with such inspiring sea views
that Debussy completed his symphony ‘La Mer’ here in 1905. This
historic, seaside retreat has two award-winning restaurants, indoor and
outdoor pools, a health spa and conference facilities.
Grand by name and by nature, the public spaces are majestic with high
palatial ceilings supporting chandeliers, vast white columns and tall
windows. The bedrooms are more intimate with period furnishings and soft
Afternoon tea at The Grand Hotel is a veritable institution, not to be
missed. Afterwards, head to the spa for a Reiki treatment, and then work
upon appetite with an invigorating cliff walk. Return for dinner at the
gastronomic Mirabelle Restaurant and enjoy the acclaimed tasting menu.
