This is always my choice of hotel when I stay in Eastbourne. Not only is it dog friendly, which my little Jack Russell loves, but the staff and service are second to none. I always get greeted like one of the family, the rooms are immaculate, there's always something interesting happening there and the food in the restaurant and bar...

My husband I were joined by some friends for lunch for my birthday. We sat in the beautiful lounge overlooking the seafront. The staff were very polite and professional. The selection of food was very good. I had a ploughmans lunch and my husband a burger. All presented well with generous portions. Would definitely eat here again! Toilets are very...

I've been here for parties, meals and once for a one night stay-over. I also attend various business and networking events here. The place always seem so calm and well organised and the staff are genuinely friendly and helpful (not the standard "have a nice day" robot talk). Sharon who deals with events is worth a special mention. I have...

Stayed with my husband and small dog for one night. Very pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel was extremely nice. Staff (lovely attentive waitress called Maria), very helpful and nothing was too much. Our pet was welcomed and we had our evening meal in the pet lounge so she could be with us while we ate. Food was of...

We've stayed at the Lansdowne Hotel twice recently and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is right on the seafront, and we were lucky to have a gorgeous sea view. The staff were friendly and very welcoming, and the hotel is full of regency charm and comfort. The hotel lounges are great to sit and read the paper whilst...

Stayed three nights this February; the room was large and comfortable and unlike most hotel rooms provided two armchairs and a coffee table. Also, again unlike most hotel rooms, the lighting was excellent - able to read anywhere in the room and, most importantly, in bed. Breakfast was excellent and staff friendly and helpful

We held my sons 5th birthday party at the Lansdowne hotel on Saturday, he and his friends had such a great time. The staff were really helpful, even when I asked if they could help rearrange the room with the bouncy castle last minute! The food and tea/coffee was perfect, and the room was just the right size for lots...

Stayed here numerous times. Dependable service, comfort, courteous staff, warm welcome and nice rooms - even a welcome for our dogs. This time our visit was spoiled completely - even though the staff did their best to correct it - by the selfish behaviour of some of the guests. OK one of the lifts wasn't working and this possibly increased...
