Sammy The Seagull Resides at the UK’s only Five-star Coastal hotel

Sammy the Seagull is an easy to read children’s book written by Neil Sean while staying at the Grand Hotel Eastbourne.  Neil is best known as the Royal Reporter for NBC news, Studio 10 and Show news. The book is also exclusively illustrated by Luke Callaghan and was written with the full cooperation of The Grand Hotel Eastbourne and Elite Hotels UK. 

Neil explains “as a former hotel manager myself for the late brand  Trust house Forte,  I know that children are often fascinated by the world of luxury and the inner workings behind the scenes of a busy and glamorous hotel. I know I was.”

The idea for the book came while staying at the hotel and taking afternoon tea on the patio lounge of the hotel overlooking the English Channel. “I noticed that there was this one rather large imposing and imperious Seagull who kept coming back and forth and looking around as if he truly owned the hotel and then he flew back up to the roof and kept a beady eye on all those below.”

Sammy the Seagull is now available to read as a guest exclusively while staying at the Grand Hotel Eastbourne and for members of the J Crew guests to buy while staying.

Sammy the Seagull Guardian of the Grand Hotel is also above to buy and download from Amazon.
