Had a two night break with Travel Zoo at the Lansdowne hotel. We have visited Eastbourne many times and stayed in several other hotels, but this one I can honestly say was the best. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to be allocated a sea view room which was very nice. The three course evening meal was excellent with...

I regularly stay at The Lansdowne when I am in the UK and this time I had a reunion dinner with old friends and colleagues. Everything was perfect that evening and also during my entire stay. The staff, as always, go out of their way to be helpful. The food in the dining room was excellent and I would recommend...

Staff are rude awful! When walking past the kitchen I see a member of staff with his finger up his nose! Decided not to have food here after that!! I reported it to a member of staff and she didn't see it as a big deal and they was all laughing at me as I walked off. That's so unprofessional...

When I entered the room, the first thing I had to do was cleaning! The room was DIRTY. The night table and the desk had not been cleaned at all. And also: the fan in the nathroom was broken. Not very impressed at all about this Best Western. It is a pity because the building is lovely and the location...

I love this hotel. It has a very homely feel. Ideally placed on the promenade within a shortish walk to all the facilities of Eastbourne. Especially handy for the theatres.

We were staying as a couple as we were attending a family funeral and it had been recommended by a relative. I didn't have high expectations - an ageing, Edwardian hotel suggested the emphasis would be on the shabby rather than the chic. But what a nice surprise. We booked a sea view room with breakfast, which was really good...
