Review of Break

Reception staff very professional, and helpful. The parking is quite a nightmare as the position of the hotel is very busy with customers and vehicles. The room was very clean and lovely size, the room was cleaned every day to a high standard. The entertainment guy named Mark was excellent, he is very talented, and has a good feel factor about him. The food was nice flavoured, but portion size far too small. Not enough for adults.

Much imprived in a stunning location

So the Burlington. This is one of the oldest Shearings hotels, and this shows in the generous proportions and stunning exterior. Some older reviews complained of room quality, but a large refurbishment has taken place in 2013. We upgraded to a standard plus room and it isn't worth extra for a superior. The room was great with a lovely sea and pier view. Could do with drawers for more clothes space. Food nice but waiter kept busy by number of tables. Some may wish for more than one piece of bacon.

Good Value

Thank you Hotel Burlington. Stayed here twice before, but this time on my own. Single Bedroom was fine, even though at the rear of Hotel. Seated with two welcoming Ladies in Dining Room Food and Service good, as was evening entertainment Good Value for Money, Also Thank you to all staff

Value for money

Just returned from a 4 day break, enjoyed our stay only down fall was could not open any Windows we were in room 101 so did find it a bit stuffy but that was a minor thing as everything else was just perfect, have stayed in Shearings hotel before and they are just good value for money.



5 March 2014

Not Bad

Just returned from this hotel for the second time, staff good, food good, but bedroom needed an update, we were in room 211 and this has a sea view but the furniture and carpet looks very tired. The entertainment was average but the hotel is in a lovely position. Couldn't use the conservatory at one side smelled very damp and the other side roof leaking so buckets collecting water!

Not bad at all!

On a 4 day £99 break with National Holidays. Great trip with great people. Good bar areas and places to sit either in the Entertainment lounge or somewhere quieter! Mark, the Compere, is quite a catch! Everyone loves him! Food very good. Staff helpful. We had a fire alarm during breakfast and staff took control and helped everyone out! False alarm. My room (314) needs updating in a BIG way! Scaffolding obscured view of sea! Floors creak terribly but wouldn't prevent me returning to this Hotel.

Great Value Hotel

Good location for town and beach. Good food and very good value Half Board. Private parking as well. Our group of 20 plus have been coming here for the past 10 years.......they keep wanting to come back........that says it all.

Great Location

We have just enjoyed our fourth stay at this hotel, just felt I needed to say that the room we stayed in certainly requires updating and some of the hotel needs a lick of paint, yellow sink we had was awful. Our table wasn't ready on the first night even though we were given the table no on arrival, food was OK but nothing special this time. Entertainment good compared to some other Shearings Hotels, and the hotel is in a great location for seafront and shops.

One to enjoy

The staff were very helpful and helped to make your holiday very enjoyable. Nothing was too much for the staff. Would definitely recommend this holiday to anyone and would definitely come here again.

Old World Charm

Lovely 3 nights stay. Loved the sea view. The room was large and airy, somewhat dated décor but in some way added to the charm. The food and menu were varied and very good. The staff was friendly and polite without being intrusive. Evening entertainment was available after dinner. Hotel is situation in a prime position for all amenities. Looking forward to another stay in the future.

One to come back to...

Had a lovely mid-week break here at the end of February/early Mach 2012. Hoping to return again soon. Great sea-view room with large bathroom (Room 312 I think). We were blessed with lovely warm t-shirt weather which was a real bonus for the time of year. Friendly informative staff, nice meals, clean rooms, nice company. Special praise must go to Tony the tour driver, excellent guy with lots of local knowledge. Looking forward to a return visit in the near future.

Lovely Hotel

Had a good 4 days here. Very good value for money. Our Waitress Gosha was lovely. We wish her Dad well! Disliked the soggy- vegetables- carrots/swede, broccoli at meal times, sorry! Nasty stain on bedroom carpet. Paint peeling off of windows frames. Lovely bathroom in our twin room, all in white but the scratched yellowy sink was horrible. Channel 4 -TV was off air every day at 4.00pm. WHY? Ladies on our table wanted to know why! Mark Snow was brilliant. As was the girl singer. Ray Cambell too!

Dissappointing Stay

I notice my last review didn't get displayed was that because I only gave you two stars, the standard room pictures look really nice shame that isn't the reality!! Not sure what star rating this hotel has perhaps it hasn't got on the scale yet. The food and cleaning were very good EVA the waitress excellent good enough to work in a London Hotel.

Early January Break

Went to the Burlington on 14th January. Excellent value for money paid. Had no complaints at all. The journey back through snow and ice was very bad but the drivers were excellent and got us home safely although very late arriving back. We cannot thank them enough. Will definitely be travelling with Shearings again and would go back to this hotel.



15 January 2013


Reception staff were very welcoming. Room 124 needs renovating, TV is too low to view comfortably. Food was fine though not the hottest, waiter wasn’t on good form and got orders wrong. Entertainment was fine, sound system not the clearest though talking throughout I consider rude. Coach trip to Battle and Rye was only spoilt by the weather. Driver was very informative.



11 January 2013

New Year Break

Had a nice time everything was good except the room, NEEDS UPDATING- went with another couple their room bright and cheerful - OURS DARK DULL AND COLD - lighting poor, Had 2 plug in heaters -1 worked - Must say they replaced it after complaining BATHROOM flooring had holes in, basin was cracked, shower did not work raw plugs on wall where shelf should be-had a sea view so paid extra -not very happy that we had to pay same price as others for that room. Otherwise HOTEL GOOD - MAY GO AGAIN?

Bargain Break

Went for a turkey and tinsel bargain break and that are exactly what we got. Large room on the second floor, warm but widows were dirty and would not open, carpet needed replacing, wash hand basin did not match toilet or bath and no shelf .Food was not bad, but we were allotted a terrible table in an alcove next to a kitchen door, serving table, and porridge/soup table (not the ideal place to have Christmas dinner) Trips good .Entertainment good, Mark tried very hard, Overall good value for money.

Good Break

A very nice 5 day holiday. My room 330 was very good but possibly needs new carpet, fix the taps in the sink please they move quite a lot when used. One of the lamps over the mirror work. Food was generally very good but not scrambled eggs (mine was a bit watery).Staff were very good polite and helpful. Thanks go to Rebecca our waitress for excellent service and for patience with me when Thanks also to Matt at the bar for looking after me and dawn very well he also sat for a photo with her!

Good Break

Weekend break. Good Three Star Hotel nice position on sea front clean and tidy, but still needs improvement. Bath towels are too small, but room clean. Excellent food well presented. The entertainment and the drink service was poor. The car park is a joke and you need to keep going back to hotel to let you in and out. All it needs is a barrier, with a programmed card. They should get more staff to give a better service in the evening. Over all this was a good weekend break at a good price.

Have just returned from a 4 day midweek break and was rather disappointed with the Burlington, she is in need of a complete makeover. The premier room we stayed in did have wonderful views the entertainment was good but the food was very poor the portions are very small will have to think twice before staying at another Shearings hotel.

Short Break

Excellent food and well presented. All staff were helpful and courteous. We had a standard room at the rear of the hotel (No 200) and found this to be a big disappointment. The paintwork in general was in a poor state and there were greasy marks on the wall above the headboard. The metal framed window in the bathroom was more rust than metal. What really annoyed my wife and I was the creaking bed base which made sleep difficult. After the first night we put the mattress on the floor.

Well worth the money

Just back from a week’s break. Staff all very helpful, food good, room ok (sea view standard room), location brilliant, right in central position across from pier around the corner from all the shops and pubs if you want more than hotel entertainment. Would go back.

Lovely Hotel, Lovely Stay

We were on the 4th floor and the views were excellent, we had a sea view Superior room, it was very nicely decorated and the facilities excellent. Parking is a bit of an issue but we got a space on the sea front for 50p per day with a voucher from reception. The food was the best we've had and we've stayed in many Shearings hotels, it was well cooked and always hot. This was our first stay at the Burlington and we are already discussing when to go again.

Great Holiday!

My Mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night break. Our sea view was spacious and comfortable. The food was good and Mum's special diet was effortlessly cared for. The staff were without exception, welcoming and friendly, especially the kind and helpful manager! The entertainment was varied and of a professional quality. This was our first stay at the Burlington and we will most definitely be back!

Very Nice and Friendly Hotel

Had a very pleasant stay. All staff are pleasant and friendly. All food excellent and well presented. Great room (No 411) with a sea view. Very clean and bright. Excellent value for money, would recommend. Good size car park, holds approximately 55 cars, but get there early as it soon fills up.
