Popular Eastbourne is a lovely, elegant seaside town sheltered by the rolling expanse of the South Downs and the towering cliffs of Beachy Head. It enjoys a remarkably mild and sunny climate, therefore earning its reputation as the ‘Suntrap of the South’, even at this time of year, if we’re lucky! Noted for its cleanliness, beautiful carpet gardens, the attractive three miles of splendid, flat promenade and, of course, the pier.
The Langham Hotel family run AA four-star hotel with an excellent location on the seafront of Eastbourne looking across the bay towards the Pier. It is just a short walk to the pier, town and amenities with a bus stop directly opposite the hotel providing services running along the coast and into town. The Langham Hotel has been awarded an AA Rosette for Fine Dining for the past 9 years in a row. All of the 77 en-suite bedrooms have a TV, hairdryer, telephone, hospitality tray and Wi-Fi. The hotel has a lift that serves all 5 floors.
