We spent two nights in the hotel on a short break. Yes it does need some updating but having said that it's a lovely hotel, very welcoming, helpful staff and the breakfast is great! We didn't pay the extra for a sea view as we planned to be out most if the time but the room we had was spacious,... More

I took my disabled (wheelchairbound) mother here for a 3day break. We were a little apprehensive as to whether she would be able to cope away from home. We need not have worried - wheelchair access and plenty of room to manoevre a wheelchair within the hotel. The hotel is right on the front with free disabled parking across the... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights with our dog after reading some of the reviews. Hotel is clean, room was spacious and staff are friendly. Location was ideal too with the town centre in one direction and beachy head in the other, great for walking. A little bonus was the gardens opposite. I feel the £10 per night is... More

All the staff coped very well from the waiting staff to house keeping and partially the bar staff ( Helen and Tom ) rushed off there feet but still had a smile and time for a little chat. Well done everybody see... More

I stayed here in February this year again for four nights again working away from home. The room was a bit small , so I would say do an upgrade and get one looking over the sea. The breakfast here was buffet style and I can honestly say one of the very best that I have ever had. Great choice... More

We stayed five nights at the Lansdowne, bed breakfast and evening meal. The room was large and airy, clean and tidy and the hotel has a super situation opposite the gardens on the promenade. The food was really good, a varied menu with lots of options. The staff were pleasant, helpful and efficient. There were lots of lounges which could... More

I go to this hotel on a regular basis. So regular that I almost treat the hotel like a home! I love the service here, with the Best Western card I always get a sea view room. There is a lot to do in Eastbourne, I rarely miss a trip to the theatre. Usually the Devonshire Park Theatre which is... More

We stayed at the Lansdowne for a weekend with our one year old. Even though we'd booked a regular room, we ended up in one with a sea view. The cot we'd requested had already been set up when we checked in and the room was bright and newly redecorated. The hotel location just by the sea was really handy... More
