The Grand Hotel on the Sussex coat is a popular choice for a luxury family holiday or break, a short walk from Eastbourne pier and loads of family activities including horse-riding, cycling ,water-skiing and sailing. Drusillas Zoo Park is also close-by. The hotel is right on the beach and though it's getting a little dated it offers exceptional facilities and service.
