This year I booked our annual Lodge Ladies Weekend at the Lansdowne as last years stay was so memorable. It wasn't a mistake this hotel and staff were just terrific. From check in to check out everything was as easy as could be. The food excellent. Our Gala dinner superb, all printing was done for us. The banqueting restaurant looked...

We love the hotel because we feel comfortable and at home. The staff, the rooms and the food are superb. The restaurant staff especially are courteous and charming. There are so many delightful places to visit nearby and Eastbourne itself is a very smart town. Have already booked for yet another visit.

The hotel outside is a lovely building, but the room we had (110) let it down as we walked in there were crumbs on the floor and the carpet is stained . A mix of old musty smelling wardrobes and modern lights that do not go together at all . The nets were very dirty as were the windows. The...

Dear emmatheresechandler Thank you for your review of our hotel. Room 110's bedrooms was refurbished last year and we have had all positive comments about it so far. I guess it is a matter of opinion but if you look at the way that many hotels that are in old buildings such as ours refurbish, mixing the old with the...

Having written a lot of reviews around the uk for hotels I always find it nice to find a hotel that exceeds expectations. I find it's not always the hotels that are modern and hitech that deliver as there is no point having a brand new hotel if the staff aren't on the same page. This hotel delivers massively, looks...

We had a lovely stay at the Lansdowne. The room was very clean with very comfortable beds. We had a room with a sea view it was stunning. The staff were friendly and helpful. They also have garages to hire for the day, and was a bonus. We would definitely return again.

I travelled here as part of a walking trip with my Mum and Dad and had a lovely stay for 3 nights. Checking in was easy and fuss free and we were given our key cards and given directions to the room. Staff were friendly and eager to please. The rooms were spotlessly clean and there was plenty of room...

Nice building sits grandly on the seafront. Check in not handled at all well. Arrived an hour and a half before official check in and told without checking that no rooms available check in to the rigid 2pm in a pretty large hotel. This complete lack of flexibility a shame as generally I liked the Landsdowne. Nicely updated room with...
