The Big Sleep, Eastbourne
'This is the latest of three Big Sleep hotels to open in the UK,' explains Sian. 'The 50-bed Eastbourne hotel offers sea views from most of the spacious rooms. Fresh and funky interiors and one of the town's coolest bars and games rooms add to the attraction, as do reasonable rates that include a decent continental breakfast.'
