Our Rooms

We recently added new fully digital locks to all our doors. Not only are they much more secure they allow us to offer greater flexibility and privacy. We can now offer check-in from Midday to Midnight everyday without making prior arrangements because it will be by self-check-in. For extra safety they automatically log when doors are accessed so in an emergency we can know which rooms are occupied. With these improvements we no longer have staff on reception or on site overnight.

Our covid Friendly Breakfast...

Although this problem with Covid is almost over we continue to modify what we do and offer throughout the Mowbray  to keep you and our staff safe .

This has an impact on our Breakfast. In particular we have to reduce the number of tables at which we can serve you to keep you at safe distances and not facing people outside of your ‘bubble’ so there can be a delay in a table being available for you and getting it ready after an earlier use can take a bit longer. We offer a pre-portioned  buffet for the cold choices to save guests so items that may be touched by one guest are not used by another. Also Salt Pepper & Condiments etc are individual sachets whilst your cooked selection is prepared in our kitchen and brought to you rather than you selecting and helping yourself at a buffet.

We have also slightly simplified our menu so we can better cope with these issues.

To find The Mowbray by road, from the A27 or A22, follow the signs to Eastbourne seafront. Turn right on the roundabout at the Sovereign Leisure Centre and follow the road along the seafront. You will travel along Royal Parade, Marine Parade and Grand Parade as you pass the pier on your left hand side. Lascelles Terrace is the 7th turning on the right after you have passed the pier – the turning being immediately after the Eastbourne Centre (formerly The T & G building). Onstreet parking is available in Lascelles Terrace and neighbouring roads. The Mowbray is at the end of Lascelles Terrace on the left hand side. Alternatively, trains depart from Victoria every 30 minutes.

As with most establishments in Eastbourne, there are public Pay & Display parking bays all around the building.  There are pay stations on the side of the road but do not use them as daily parking permits are available for all guests that request them at just £3 per day and you do not have to move after 4 hours!!.
