For the past eight years, I have organised a successful and growing playworkers conference in Eastbourne, initially I used the Lions Group for accommodation, for the last three years we have hosted the whole conference at the Albany Lions Hotel and the Mansion Lions Hotel.
I cannot recommend the hotel enough – all the staff ensure our conference runs smoothly and without problems, I am sure  if there was a problem it would be  dealt with quickly and efficiently. I want to give particular praise to Fran who works very closely with our team to make sure all requirements are met.

Hi Francesca, John and I just wanted to say how impressed we were with the service we received at my Aunts Wake last Thursday. The food was delicious, there was a continuous supply of coffee, tea and juice and all the Staff were very courteous. A fitting end to what was a sad day for the close family. Thank you all so much.

Following our recent event held in the Sussex Room, we would like to thank the team at the Boship Hotel for all their help before and during the event. The room was just right and set up as requested in time for our arrival, equipment was supplied and set up as agreed and the refreshments were served on time. We will definitely be using this venue again for future events.
