This is what it says about The Port Hotel on Eastbourne Seafront:

“The matt-black painted exterior sets the tone at this design-led boutique spot on the seafront in Eastbourne. It’s not like the other old-fashioned Victorian townhouses and hotels it neighbours, because inside it’s a Scandi dream with a muted colour scheme, pale wood furniture and lots of natural light. The reception has a cosy marble fireplace, monochrome objets d’art, chess and backgammon sets and cream Rico lounge chairs and sofas. A rotating collection of framed prints (sometimes local artists, sometimes tied to a nearby exhibition) give a real sense of place. Stylish rooms are split between sea and town views — bar the few family-friendly and dog-friendly options on the lower-ground floor.”
