After honing his hospitality skills at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane for 28 years, hotelier Neil Kirby decided to bring some Mayfair flair to Eastbourne’s seafront. The result is the AA 4-star Langham Hotel. Since the Kirby family acquired the hotel in 2005, an extensive refurbishment has seen a number of the rooms upgraded to reflect its bay views.
Befitting its Royal Parade address, English Channel views join AA Rosette-awarded cuisine in the Conservatory Restaurant here. In keeping with its classic design, Full English breakfasts also precede Grand Afternoon Teas. Upstairs tell a similarly grand story with corniced ceilings and sea views just some of the highlights that await.
How to Get There
We had a meal in the restaurant. a while ago. The table wasn't steady so had to be shored up. The carpet was dirty.There were 6 of us at one table and other than a whole regiment of old soldiers on a reunion there were no other guests in the restaurant. The soldiers had prayers and speeches , we felt really uncomfortable and so did they.The food was disgusting.
The really funny thing is that the owner had been a general manager at a hotel on Park Lane London and in his book states that he keeps the same standards in his hotel!!!
Pity we were turned away from the Langham at 1115 where we were seeking morning coffee on their front balcony. Apparently notices were placed advising that the facility was for Residents Only due to a wedding. If the notices had mentioned a time, as there were already non residents taking morning coffee when the notices were posted we may have taken coffee earlier instead of waliking along the boardwalk and then returning.
The bedroom was clean and tidy. We had a room at the back so we could leave the window open all day because we had in the sun in our room all day we closed the curtains to keep the room cool. You had a good choice for breakfast. You are only a bus ride away from the town centre, plenty of shops to look around in.
Very welcoming, we arrived to early for our room but they were very helpful, regarding parking, they have some parking spaces but you have to book, the hotel is very clean and well looked after, they have a certificate for food hygiene rated 5 very good, they offer packed lunches for only £5.50, the afternoon teas looked fab, even though we didn't get time to try one, the breakfast was lovely well presented, even the chairs in the dining room were put at an angle in a welcoming way for you to sit, you can also sit in the conservatory to eat, they have a nice seating area out the front overlooking the sea, we had a very small inside twin room, which was very hot, a fan was provided, if I come to eastbourne again I would defiantly stay here, but I would choose a larger room, the cost was very reasonable...a lovely stay
Spent one night at this superb hotel, yes the décor is a little dated, classic more appropriate, but this adds to the quaintness of The Langham. The rooms were exceptionally clean with all facilities and the breakfast was excellent, all the staff were attentive and polite. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay there and would definitely return. Very good value for money.
Eastbourne is definitely worth visiting whatever your age. Go to the Bandstand, brilliant entertainment.
