Excellent service, well maintained rooms and public areas. Very helpful staff. A problem with the heating was rectified within minutes. The hotel is located in a perfect position for a trip to the theatre.

I regularly meet friends for coffee in the lovely lounge which is so bright and airy. On other occasions I call in for coffee with one of my dogs and use the small but very comfortable pets lounge. The staff are always friendly and welcoming.

I often go into the Lansdowne hotel when visiting Eastbourne as it has such a calm yet uplifting energy about it. The hotel is always clean and feels well loved and the service is fantastic. You can't but help feel happy, relaxed and cared for once you step over their door.

I have stayed at the Lansdowne for many years now and most recently at Christmas and am booked again for the spring.

After having just been for a lovely walk along the Eastbourne seafront, for a change, we decided to drop into the Lansdowne Hotel for a cup of coffee to warm up. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was cosy and I fully recommend their homemade biscuits!! We will definitely do that again!! makes a change to a café

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...
