The Royal Hotel, 4 star AA-rated guest accommodation on Eastbourne Seafront, is offering a 10% discount and helping to support East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS), a local charity rescuing up to 3000 wildlife casualties a year.
The Royal is an original “Sea House” and has offered accommodation and spectacular sea views to Eastbourne’s visitors for over 170 years. The property has been fully renovated with bright, clean and modern facilities including WiFi, and most rooms have a panoramic sea view.
"This is great, pet friendly accommodation and they are currently awaiting their Green Tourism grade. It's a great place to stay and enjoy delicious vegetarian breakfasts." said Trevor Weeks founder of WRAS.
The Royal Hotel is also mentioned in "Jeeves in the Offing" by P.G. Wodehouse. The Royal is the hotel where fearsome Aunt Dahlia is staying on a visit to Eastbourne, when Bertie has to send her a telegram.
"Everyone at The Royal strongly supports the voluntary work undertaken by WRAS and we see it as a extension of the way we operate, with our pet friendly service and eco friendly attitude to the environment and its wildlife. We are delighted to be able to offer a 10% discount to visitors and make a donation to WRAS when people book mentioning "East Sussex Wildlife Rescue" said Lynda, the owner.
East Sussex WRAS is currently snowed under receiving up to 50 call outs a day and key volunteers work up to 16 hours a day helping rescue wildlife casualties.
"This offer by the Royal is a great help to WRAS as we desperately need funding to help continue looking after wildlife which like its domestic and agricultural cousins don’t have anyone to look after them. We are very grateful to the Royal for all its help and support and urge as many people as possible to come to Eastbourne, which is a beautiful town with superb countryside. So next time you have someone coming to visit encourage them to stay at the Royal, opposite the beach on Marine Parade" said Trevor.
Anyone wanting to support WRAS by staying at the Royal should mention "East Sussex Wildlife Rescue" when booking on-line at www.royaleastbourne.org.uk or over the phone on 01323-649222.
Anyone wanting to make a donation to WRAS can do so on-line at www.wildlifeambulance.org or send a donation direct to Julia Bond, East Sussex WRAS, Po Box 2148, Seaford, East Sussex, BN25 9DE.
