4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Just spent four nights here. First impressions not entirely favourable. The outside really needs refurbishing. There are quite big weeds growing on the balconies! We had booked through a booking agency instead of the hotel and on arrival wanted to upgrade the room. The receptionist was frosty until I realised she thought I wanted a free upgrade, when I was...

The snooker and games room that is advertised as open 24/7 . One of the reasons we booked this hotel was to be able to use this room in bad weather . Even when we asked staff at reception for directions we weren't told it was a laundry room Not good enough Landsdowne.

My wife and I returned to the Lansdowne in February and we're pleased to say that it has maintained the same high standards as last year. It is an old fashioned traditional seaside hotel, very welcoming with high standards of cleanliness and customer service. Beautifully warm and welcoming. It was nice to see some members of staff whom we met... More

Excellent, quiet hotel. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, ours having superb sea views. Staff were polite and helpful. Good choice of breakfast served in a large, bright ,airy dining room. Dog friendly separate lounge was much appreciated. This was our first visit to the Lansdowne, we will definitely visit again for a longer stay.

Got put up here for a week with work. If you are a retired couple/group of friends I'm sure its great. For work it's not so good. Distinct and very strong smell of an OAP home. Lift is ancient, tiny, rickity and honestly I'm surprised still works. Breakfast is suitably acceptable

A special mention must be made to duty manager Andrew who is so good at his job and nothing is too much trouble. Helen in the bar is totally brilliant professional with warmth and a bubbly personality. Will... More

We stayed her for 3 days B & B. It was a lovely hotel to relax in. There are plenty of small lounges to sit in and read the paper. We spent everyday walking and the weather in Eastbourne was very mild and we sat out on Pevensey beach for a drink. Our room was big and we had booked... More
