We stayed in a lovely twin room that had plenty of space and a good view from the window. The bathroom was cosy and clean and the room had plenty of style. The food was delicious and there were plenty of vegetarian options for me and my friend. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly as well as polite. I... More

A group of us stayed here on a weekend break with a small travel company. The staff were courteous and helpful. We found the food to be very good. It is a short distance from the town which is helpful and also The Congress Theatre where we enjoyed a show.

We visited Lansdowne in Eastbourne and it was a lovely hotel. The people working the front desk were very kind and professional. We enjoyed the character of the family room we stayed in. It was an excellent value and incredibly roomy. This was my children’s favorite place of all the hotels we stayed on our journey. The room was essentially... More

The Lansdowne has been in the same family for over 100 years and I have been staying there for over 30 years , on and off. I even remember the days of 'Old Mr. Lewis' who was so hospitable. Now the batton has passed to his son who still maintains personal control. Over the years we have witnessed many changes... More
