Really enjoyed my stay with my miniature schnauzer Charlie. 2-minutes from the sea front with miles of lovely walks and only a few miles from Beachy Head. So great to find a dog friendly hotel that offers a warm welcome for us both. Look forward to another visit to lovely Eastbourne and will be staying again at this great hotel

I stayed at the New Wilmington for an extended visit and I was happy with everything. The bed was perfect. The sheets were so soft. There were ample USB outlets. Lots of channel choices on the TV. My room was big and well appointed. The staff were great! A shout out to Liam and Lyn, and all the staff for always having a cheerful greeting and making sure everything was all right. Ina did a great job cleaning my room too. I ate at the restaurant a couple of nights, the food was great and the service was excellent. I highly recommend the New Wilmington and hope I can return some day!
