Booked last minute due to problems at another hotel. Room was comfortable spacious. Staff very pleasant. Nice lounges plenty of comfortable settees and lots of rooms. Breakfast was rather hectic we arrived at 8.50am breakfast until 9.30am ....had to wait for food to be replenished which was long winded. Other than that there was a good variety. The resturant was... More

Great position on the seafront in a quieter part of Eastbourne. Like many other reviwers I felt that you stepped back in time at this hotel. I stayed in a single room at the back of the hotel which didn't have the greatest view however, the cleanliness and comfort of the room made up for that. Breakfast is one of... More

We recently spent the night here for a weekend break in Eastbourne. The hotel is ideally located right on the seafront and only a few minutes' walk away from the shops and restaurants. Also, you can park on the road outside and either pay and display or get a hotel guest ticket from reception for £1 which will last until... More

Thank you for your review, I am pleased to see you enjoyed your visit. The Hotel is, as you say, perfectly placed for exploring Beachy Head, The South Downs National Park and surrounding villages, and Eastbourne itself. Many Thanks More

Were slightly apprehensive before we arrived as we'd heard that the basic rooms at the back were rather ghastly. Well, phew! Being members of Best Western, we were upgraded to a side sea-view room. It was a lovely room - really large, big window, comfy beds, although the furniture was rather ancient - big dark wooden wardrobe and drawers, rather... More

Thank you for reviewing our hotel, I am pleased to see you enjoyed your stay and dessert! I would of course never describe our back rooms as 'basic and ghastly', they have the same amenities as the front rooms, they are just a little smaller due to the nature of the building and of course they don't face the sea!...

We had been before and preferred that stay to this one. We had a front facing room on the earlier visit and a room at the rear this time around and this made a great deal of difference to the stay. A little bit of noise with people passing the room.

Thank you for your review, you are correct, Sea views do make a difference, I wish all rooms faced the sea but I am afraid that was not a consideration in 1880 when buildings like this were built. More

We stayed during the Airbourne show,and were very lucky to get a room with a seaview,overlooking all the activity. As you would expect the room was dearer on the final day of the show and subsequent days marginally cheaper. The staff very friendly and accommodating to an extent.I was a little disappointed with the range of food on offer for... More

Thank you for reviewing our hotel, I am pleased that overall you enjoyed your visit and found the staff friendly. We do offer cheese and Ham for breakfast but they are on the menu and need to be ordered from your waiter, they are not items put out daily on the buffet, sorry for any confusion. More

If you are looking for the quintessential British seaside hotel, then look no further than The Lansdowne. Set upon the clifftops at the Western end of Eastbourne, the hotel is well situated for all amenities. The grand reception/entrance is matched by the décor throughout the hotel. The ground floor is a myriad of small lounges, relaxing rooms, bars and dining... More

Visiting the place to see the air show so rooms in the area were at a premium, £150. The room was ok, back of the hotel with views of air ducts and old garages but it was nice enough. Its an old hotel in many ways but staff generally helpful and breakfast was at the window seat by pure fluke.... More
