West Rocks Hotel
44 Grand Parade
The West Rocks Hotel, converted from three Georgian town houses, sits on Eastbourne's sea front.
The current owners, Steve Thomas and Chris Copping, bought the hotel in 2015 and immediately carried out a major refurbishment project. All guest rooms were gutted, redecorated, had new carpets laid and all beds/mattresses were replaced. The public areas of the hotel received new fixtures, carpets and redecorated. The project transformed this 100 year old building into a boutique style hotel.
For our A Weekend Away With the hotel is closed to the general public. We utilise the basement breakfast room as a pop-up nightclub and bring in our own sound and lighting with a sound engineer for each event.
The hotel bar is not tied to a particular brewery which means it stocks a wide variety of brands.
