The luxurious bedrooms offer twin-bedded accommodation, most with French doors opening out on to a private balcony overlooking the sea. All have beautiful en-suite bathrooms. Single rooms may be available on request for an additional supplement.
All bed linen and duvet covers are provided, as well as bath and hand towels, which are changed daily. Every consideration will be given to any request to share bedrooms with a friend or relative but this cannot always be guaranteed.
Students will have tea/coffee making facilities in their rooms, as well as a flat screen LCD freeview TV, air-conditioning, hairdryer, ironing station, telephone and safety deposit box for valuables. All students will have their own room keys. Any room service, telephone or bar bills will be charged by the Eastbourne Centre directly to the student AND ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE COURSE FEES.
There are various social seating areas within the Centre where students can relax with friends, including a large roof terrace with outstanding views of the English Channel, South Downs and Eastbourne. There is also a library if students prefer to be quiet and a small IT area where students can use the in-house computers to access the internet.
The Centre has WIFI connection throughout, including the bedrooms (included in the course fee). Students are welcome to bring laptops.
Breakfast and lunch will take place in the centre restaurant, which offers a tasty traditional cuisine with several hot and cold choices available. Meals are a mixture of waiter service and buffet style.
Our townhouses are located within a few minutes’ walk for the seafront and Eastbourne Centre where English lessons and lunch take place. Each house provides excellent accommodation with large double bedrooms, fully fitted kitchens and communal lounges where all the students can get together and socialise. Bedlinen is provided but no towels.
For students aged 16 to 18, our town houses are supervised 24 hours per day by our own staff. Students have a continental breakfast in the houses and lunch at the Eastbourne Centre restaurant overlooking the seafront.
Students aged 18 and over can stay in our unsupervised town houses on a self-catering basis giving them total freedom and flexibility during their stay with us.
In the evening, dinner for all our students (except students aged 18 and over) is provided at local restaurants offering a variety of menus in the town centre . Vegetarian and all other dietary requirements are catered for.
Qualified first aid staff are on site at all times. The local doctor's surgery is a few minutes away and the District Hospital (for more serious cases) is a five minute car journey.
The welfare and safety of our students is paramount to us and our experienced and well-trained staff will support your son or daughter throughout their stay at Eastbourne Centre. However, while we take our responsibilities extremely seriously, we do expect full co-operation from all students.
This programme offers students a higher level of freedom and independence and we ask parents to consider carefully before booking this Centre. If there are any doubts about your son or daughter's maturity, we would ask you to consider one of our other Centres, where the supervision is greater. We reserve the right to expel (send home) any student who disrupts the course or compromises the safety and integrity of others.
