Great location on seafront, traditional old hotel slightly fraying at the edges but clean and comfortable with all the facilities of a more modern hotel. Cosy bar and lounges. Very helpful/welcoming staf, a credit to Best Western. Great 4 course English meal traditionally served by efficient waiters. Good quality buffet breakfast. One of the few affordable hotels we are happy... More

I stay here for work purposes and it does everything I want it to. Good friendly service and clean. Well done! When I booked through late rooms I was not charged extra for moving a night. The decor can do with a face lift but its fine for me.

We wanted to go for a weekend break to Eastbourne and found this hotel online. It's a great hotel, with a beautiful lobby and lovely rooms. Sea views are fantastic. The location is very central and a short walk to the pier. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and we spoke to a number of other holiday makers who are... More

all very satisfactory, we enjoy three or four breaks here a year. Staff always have a smile and are very helpful.The service is good and there is a reasonable variety of eood and drink both in the dining room and from lounge and bar service.Good position, quiet and over looking the sea.We enjoy the Lansdowne very much.

Stayed for 2 nights Friday/ Saturday. Hotel was very peaceful and lots of spaces to sit and admire the sea view with a drink. Average age of clientele about 60. Room was basic, shoddy housekeeping, stains and hair on the bed sheets and bathroom clearly hadn't been replaced since the 80s. We also found the room cold due to the... More

Having decided a little late in the day to eat Christmas Lunch at a hotel, for a change, it seemed a nice idea to stay in the same place for a really relaxing Christmas Day. “The View” was our original choice but all rooms were full so duly booked the Lansdowne on a Hotel Booking site Checked the Lansdowne’s own...

This hotel is ideally situated along the sea front at Eastbourne. The rooms are very spacious and we had a lovely seaview. The restaurant offers a good choice at a reasonable cost and the dining room is very pleasant. Only one other table of 2 in the restaurant for dinner but probably due to time of year and being mid-week.... More
