Having chosen the hotel purely for its location, and read some other reviews, I must say my expectations were not high. How wrong I was!
Ben, the receptionist on duty when we arrived (early) was very gracious and allowed us to leave the car in the (admittedly small) car park while we went to lunch before checking in. The room (8) was very clean and good sized with a tv on Freeview- fine. Bathroom must be almost brand new, with an excellent power shower.
Lots of nice little detail touches like cotton buds in the toiletry tray. Good quality fluffy towels.
Breakfast pretty good, particularly tasty bacon which I suspect comes from the excellent butcher round the corner. Lots of choice of cereals and fruit, perhaps the coffee pots could be heated prior to putting the coffee in, as it went cold pretty fast. Very polite Polish (?) waitress.
Those reviewers who complained about the facilities should note that the Lansdowne's rating is as guest accommodation, not a hotel rating and should be judged accordingly. Those who think it's a bit dated should realise that it is actually a Regency building. That means it's 200 years old, people! Relax and enjoy the history and period features, along with Ben's friendly hospitality.
I give it a score of five out of five even though as a former B&B owner myself, I am hard to please and know what to look for. Highly recommended, good value and we shall be back.
