We arrived very late after a miserable 6 hour journey stuck on the M25 & M4, the young guy on reception was very welcoming & assured us that even though it was nearly time for the kitchen to close they would still provide dinner. We had the Friday night 'Special' of two steaks with chips & salad with a bottle... More

Popped in for drinks and food. Not been here for a while and the local paper said it had new managers. We got our drinks and went into the Strand room - as it now has a pool table and television showing a fottball match. They need to get the cleaners in ! The large fan vent was filthy beyond... More

We are surviving quite well thank you with our guests and people who enjoy coming in with friend's to watch TV, play pool or just chat I can see no reason for your rude comment about a B&B when you didn't stay. It must have been a very old copy of a newspaper you read, as present manger has been... More

Stayed in this hotel a couple of weeks ago. The room was adequate. The building is an old creaky building and needs redecorating.The wifi didn't work. Although the stay was cheap it really wasn't worth it because kept up all night by the sound of a boiler (or something) as well as noisy guests from the pub. Didn't stay for... More

To here the boiler you would of had to be in a room the opposite side of the bar so I am not sure how you heard the people from the bar. and we had no complaint from the room above the bar area. Wifi is a free option and can vary as we are in a old building with... More

We have eaten at the Lansdowne Strand on and off for many years. We have found it will be great for a few years and then the chef would change and the food would go downhill. We haven't been for around 2 years for this reason and thought we would try again. I had curry which was very spicy, but... More

The food was cooked brilliantly. I had steak, it was cooked as requested and so tender. Chunky real chips, salad. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and would recommend to anyone. My... More

Having read some of the reviews below, I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Granted, the bathroom was old and tired but it was clean. The bedroom was newly decorated, new carpet and well made curtains with matching headboard. Parts of the rest of the hotel were ‘tired’ but obviously undergoing an update, without closing down – which is understandable.... More
