Had a one night stay in the Lansdowne Hotel. Hotel was clean and comfortable and in a good location. Our room was clean and comfortable although the bed was a little small (but we did know it was only a double rather than king size) and the pillows could do with changing as they were flat and hard. The shower...

The hotel looks nice from the outside but let down by staff and food quality. To start things off I was a witness to an old lady asking if she could hire a room for 30 close friends well the reception staff just laugh be hide her back. Very rude !! They don't seem to have good customer service manners...

My wife and I booked the Lansdowne for 2 nights following an email from Best Western offering a special winter price. We stayed Friday and Saturday nights and the whole experience was perfect. The staff are really nice and welcoming, the room was not large but very comfortable with everything you can ask for and having dinner on Friday night...

I chose this hotel due to access to parking. Only paid £1 for ticket until we checked out. Spacious room and wonderful Seaview. Bathroom is basic with decent toiletries. Really good bed and comfortable pillows. Reasonably priced drinks at the bar. The whole building is quaint but have new clean carpets and still smelled of new paint during our stay....

The hotel is right on the front and just a few minutes walk from the theatres. It was so clean everywhere. The room that I had was massive, there was a bath AND a walk in shower. Unfortunately the water pressure was a joke. The staff that I met were all so helpful and friendly. The bar finishes serving food...

We stayed for 2 nights (room 132 I think?) and the sea view was amazing. Clean spacious room. We ordered a lot of room service, food was hot and tasty. (£4 tray charge tho...) staff super friendly. Good mix of old and young at hotel. Will be booking again next year! :-D

I have stayed here a number of times and was a regular user of The Landsdowne for work purposes. I have always been highly satisfied with the hotel but the last two visits the following day I have been covered in bites all over my body. I can only assume this has occurred in bed. I will not be staying...

Spent a midweek break here and couldn't fault the hotel. The reception staff were extremely welcoming and our room was really comfortable and had been recently decorated . We liked all the different rooms and alcoves where you could relax with a drink or just take afternoon tea. Breakfast and service in the breakfast room was also above average Would...

We have stayed at the Landsdowne hotel about seven times in all. Its a friendly hotel, with helpful staff, sea views, good food and a warm atmosphere.

We stayed for just a night, but had such a wonderful time, packing so much into our stay, it felt like a break away for a week. The hotel staff were amazing, the rooms so comfortable, newly refurbished, tastefully decorated to provide a comfortable, relaxing stay.
