Eastbourne is mainly full of pensioners and I think most hotels cater for this market. However, the hotel was comfy and cost and pleasant to sit in, read the papers and have a drink. The room was newly refurbished, albeit a little old-fashioned. It is probably more in keeping with the age of the hotel and clientele. The bed was... More

Probably the most outstanding hotel in this quality class along the south coast! And we know of many so we are entitled to say that!! A really lovely, warm and friendly atmosphere with so much help and generosity. People are extremely friendly without being intrusive. The food is of a very high standard and there are many features about the... More

Solid Best Western Hotel. Friendly staff, clean rooms. An ideal winter break where you should be able to get a sea view room at a very reasonable rate. We book through the BW website which is fast and efficient. Plenty of places to eat nearby. We have not tried the Evening Menu, but breakfast is always very good.

The hotel is well positioned and our room had a sea view through large bow windows. The room decor was very good - spacious and attractive. The lounges are comfortable and cosy. The staff were welcoming and very polite. There was a good range of options for breakfast; my smoked haddock was cooked perfectly. We had one small issue that... More

We visited as a couple for a two daybreak. The hotel is well located on the front at Eastbourne. It is within easy distance of the town ,the harbour and Beachy Head.The room was a reasonable sideboard and comfortable.There was an extensive menu for both the bar and restaurant.Afternoon tea was excellent.We would definitely stay there again.

Booked last minute as unfortunately we were in Eastbourne to attend a funeral. A warm welcome greeted us after a long drive, our room was comfortable and had everything we needed. The sea view would have been lovely but it was very cold and wet and we could hardly see the sea. Nevertheless we would recommend the Lansdowne hotel as... More

We booked for a weekend break for two couples. We were pleased with the price so we took a risk on the hotel and were willing to put up with any reasonable problems. We had nothing to worry about. Good staff, clean good size rooms, a buffet breakfast with plenty of choice, and a cream tea to really enjoy. Our... More

We stayed here for four days and the service was excellent throughout. The restaurant was superb and the food was generally fresh and well cooked. The room was clean, large and well appointed. The only drawback was the buffet breakfast - eggs and bacon etc. suffer for being kept warm.

Just to say a big thank you for a lovely room and Sunday lunch. More so as my wife was unwell and every care was given her by the hotel staff. The old world charm and service was a very pleasant surprise Hope to go again soon.

This is a hotel we have stayed in many times - mostly single nights for family get-togethers. It is in an ideal situation close to the sea-front. It has good rooms with good views (but take a higher price room at the front) and the sitting rooms are first class for a wet-day or for having tea with friends. Then... More
