“1960s motel reborn as stylish New England beach hotel with good cafe and bistro dining, on Camber Beach. Driftwood style, retro detailing and a magnificent sandy beach.”

“1960s motel reborn as stylish New England beach hotel with good cafe and bistro dining, on Camber Beach. Driftwood style, retro detailing and a magnificent sandy beach.”

Hotel Overview

“The star of this show is the spectacular Camber beach; eight miles of uninterrupted golden sands just a short walk from the hotel. The Gallivant often accommodates photo-shoots, attracted by the beach. The 18 rooms are self-consciously beach orientated with ‘driftwood’ furniture, white painted floors and the broad striped linens and waist-high panelling you might be used to from your cottage in the Hamptons. 1960s telephones add a nostalgic touch for baby-boomers. Two restaurants - the Beach Bistro and the Beach Café - serve the inner man/woman and there are occasional cookery school days, culminating in a feast.”

See What They Say

“Escape to the Gallivant, Sussex's Beach House hotel, an oasis opposite the dunes of Camber and the eight miles of uninterrupted golden sand beyond. Our New England style environment exudes charm and tranquility, offering great old fashioned service as standard and beautiful coastal inspired bedrooms. The perfect base to explore 1066 country, with its countless historic houses, gardens and villages, the dramatic wilderness of Dungeness and the ancient medieval Cinque Port of Rye all on our doorstep.

Delicious food, breakfast, lunch and dinner, always seasonal, local when best, cooked with love and passion and arguably as good as it gets in Sussex. Romantic candlelit dinner as night falls, a light lunch or a hearty breakfast for beachcombers and walkers - take your pick.”
