Britannia Hotels acquires Eastbourne hotel

Britannia Hotels has just bought the four-star Cavendish Hotel on Grand Parade in Eastbourne from the Regency Group, taking its estate to 51 hotels.

The 119-bedroom hotel includes a restaurant and bar as well as extensive meeting and leisure facilities. It faces the coast on Eastbourne’s Grand Parade and is around a ten minute walk from Eastbourne station.

Regency Group, which bought the Cavendish Hotel in 2002, invested heavily in the property by upgrading the bedrooms and improving the conference facilities in a bid to turn it into quality four-star accommodation.

This is the fourth hotel purchased by Britannia Hotels this year. It has already added the Trecarn hotel in Babbacombe, Devon with 134 bedrooms; the Palace Hotel Buxton with 122 bedrooms and Basingstoke Country Hotel with 100 bedrooms to its collection.
