First time at this hotel and was not disappointed. Close to all amenities and theatres are 5 minutes walk away. Only booked b and b but used bar menu for evening meals which proved a good choice We will ne back.

This seems to be a popular hotel for old people who like to travel together, or coach trips. It's a long line of terraced houses facing the sea front ehich have been combined, so there is a long line of corridor passing identical staircases. Upstairs, the corridors go through many, many fire doors. The good thing for the old people...

Room was very clean and comfortable. I would have no hesitation about going again. All the staff, cleaners, caterers, reception everyone was fantastic and nothing was any trouble for any of them. Our room had a brilliant sea view and it was very relaxing.

My family have been going to this hotel for 40years. It is a constant in a changing world. Updates are subtle and the atmosphere is redolent of a country house. The location over looking the lawns with a clear view of Beachy Head and the Rocky beach is ideal. If you are fortunate to have a front bedroom the views...

This was our second Best Western Hotel within a few days, and if the Lansdowne is a good example of the 'group' then we will be booking into more in the future.

Back to Eastbourne again for the annual BECTU conference. This time i was booked into the Lansdowne.    On arrival I was greeted by a very friendly and helpful receptionist. Aside from the pleasant welcome, my first impression was that of an old style and elegant hotel.  I later noted a number of pleasant and quiet reception rooms on the ground...
