We have stayed here on a few occasions for, say, two nights a time to visit relatives. This time we paid £67.50 per night which is pretty good value. I see that over £100 per night is now being quoted which, for the quality of the hotel, I regard as quite high. Our bedroom (a 'standard') was at the back...

We stayed in a double room with beach front views. Our room was immaculately decorated, a modern style with elegant class. The large full length bay windows allowed us a beautiful view of the western lawns and the Downs. The staff were all very professional with a welcoming smile. Although we live in Eastbourne it was lovely to get away...

Old hotel, converted from a row of imposing properties facing the sea. Because of this the hotel stretches over quite a distance and it can be a bit of a route march from one end to the other. Nice bar with a good selection of wines at reasonable prices. Large restaurant with good food at dinner and waiter service, though...

First time staying at this hotel and it wasn't a disappointment. The room was cleaned to a very high standard and the décor and furnishings were fresh and tastefully done. The food was generally very good with decent sized portions and a good choice was on offer. The waiting staff were very attentive but sometimes under pressure when the dining...

Even with a group booking service was excellent. Meals all served in close succession. A varied menu over the 4 nights. All rooms were clean spacious and comfortable. All staff were polite and attentive. Plenty of sitting spaces to relax before and after meals.

Busy hotel seems to get a lot of bus trips Hotel is clean but certainly old I would stay here again, it's a bit of a walk from the town centre, but it's not too bad if you fit Eastbourne attracts an older crowd but it's clean and tidy

Nicely located , sea view rooms for those at the front, short flat walk into town. We understand that a refurbishment is about to happen , not a moment too soon as the public rooms are looking 'tired' as are the furnishings. When all said and done , it's people,ie the staff, who really make your stay and complete the...

The Lansdowne is situated wonderfully on the impressive sea front at beautiful Eastbourne. It has all the facilities you could possibly want and the room I stayed was large with a comfortable double bed. Bathroom fine but I had to move room because the wifi didn't work in the first room. The only two downsides were the whole hotel was...

Stayed at this hotel whilst in Eastbourne on business for a few nights. What it lacks in car parking- none; it makes up for with its size. Even when it's busy you can find a quiet corner in one of its lounges to relax. The food is good and the breakfast has plenty of choice. My room was as the...

I normally leave my reviews till I leave but this time I'm doing it why I'm still there. I hate being ripped off, I just happened to check the price off the room we are in now and to my horror I find it £120.00 cheaper than we payed. I booked it in January and being a Best Western Platinum...
