he four star Hydro Hotel, Eastbourne was built in 1895 as a place of relaxation by the sea. Situated on a cliff top, it offers far reaching views of the sea and looks towards Beachy Head. The hotel has 82 bedrooms, large lounges, two restaurants, a ballroom and three further function rooms and a hair salon. During 2017 an extensive refurbishment programme has been completed with the hotel subsequently being awarded 4 stars by the AA, the first time in the hotel’s 120-year history.

During December, we like to get in the festive mood and welcome corporate and leisure guests to join us at one of our festive party nights, traditional Christmas lunch, New Year’s Eve or perhaps just a drink with colleagues at the bar in one of our large lounges.

Whether you are organising your company’s party or looking to enjoy a night out with  friends, our festive parties are an evening to remember. Start the evening by greeting your guests in one of our festive lounges or bar for a pre-dinner drink. Enjoy a sumptuous three course meal with coffee and mince pies, then celebrate and dance the night away until midnight with our resident DJ.

Each party night includes a three-course pre-ordered festive meal, festive décor and after dinner disco. We are also able to offer preferential accommodation rates from £39.50 per person for bed and breakfast, based on two people sharing.

Our festive party nights take place on Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd, Saturday 9th, Thursday 14th, Saturday 16th and Saturday 23rd December and will be held in the Crystal Restaurant. Festive party nights are priced at only £38 per person (£34 per person on Thursday 14th). We are also available to offer a private dinner without a disco on a date that suits. Please speak with our events team to discuss further.

For those that are too busy to fit in celebrations during December, why not check out our January private dining availability. January party nights are available on selected dates in 2018 from £30 per person. They provide an ideal opportunity for those companies and employees that are particularly busy during the festive period and able to celebrate with colleagues in the quieter January period. Please speak with us for further details and let us create an event to suit your requirements.

Our Crystal Restaurant will have a festive luncheon menu throughout December with a choice of dishes priced at £18.50 for two courses and £21 for three courses. The restaurant is a large and airy space, making an ideal location to dine with colleagues or clients.

The Hydro will also be welcoming in the New Year with a gala dinner in the Crystal Restaurant and an after dinner band with dancing to celebrate the start of 2018. On New Year’s Day we will be serving a full traditional breakfast with Buck’s Fizz followed by a four-course dinner and after dinner music in the Conservatory. Two-night packages are priced at only £320 per person based on two people sharing a classic double or twin bedroom.

We have recently introduced online gift vouchers that enable purchases via our website and an instant electronic voucher available to be sent to the purchaser or recipient. Vouchers can be set to be sent to the recipient on the day of your choice, for example Christmas Day or a birthday. We have created a wide selection of vouchers that start from only £10 and include monetary vouchers, afternoon tea, dining and overnight breaks. Vouchers are valid for nine months from the date of purchase and can be redeemed at the recipient’s leisure. A personalised message can also be included on the voucher. The hardest decision will be which one to select!
