ENCHANTING EASTBOURNE

Eastbourne is an elegant resort at the foot of the South Downs. Dating from the 1850s this charming seaside town has a south-facing promenade that is backed by beautiful flowerbeds and a wonderfully traditional feel. It makes an ideal base to explore the many delights of the south coast.

Our hotel is the popular two star family run Haddon Hall which is very well situated within easy walking distance of the town and the seafront. It always offers efficient service, good food and well furnished rooms with lift access.
