Best Western Lansdowne Hotel is less than 100 metres from Eastbourne's Grand Parade Beach, within 10 minutes' walk of the Congress Theatre, Devonshire Park Theatre and the Winter Garden, and less than 15 minutes' walk along the promenade from Eastbourne Pier.

The chalk cliffs of Beachy Head are a 10-minute drive away, while Battle Abbey, built on the site of the Battle of Hastings, is 35 minutes from the hotel, and Brighton is 45 minutes' drive. Picturesque villages Alfriston and Litlington are around 20 minutes' drive away and are good bases from which to walk a section of the South Downs Way. Keen ramblers could get a taxi and then follow the path on foot all the way back to Eastbourne.

The hotel has been run by the same family since 1912. Facilities include the Devonshire Restaurant, which serves British classics, the Regency Bar and a selection of sea-facing lounges with original Victorian features, where afternoon tea is served.

Bedrooms are "attractively decorated", according to The AA, and some Standard Double rooms have sea views. Dogs can stay in select rooms for an extra £12 per night (please request on booking). Wi-Fi is free.

This is an excellent hotel and so is very busy. The staff are excellent; especially the reception team who helped sort out the booking that I had made a mess of. The food was excellent; breakfast was the best buffet breakfast I have had in a hotel. A good range of cereals and fruit and wonderfully thick yogurt. Cream tea with warm scones was a delight. Dinner was good an adequate range of food at an excellent price. A good range of wines are available by a glass of several sizes, all reasonably priced. Our room had a sea view, with two arm chairs and a good bathroom. All very clean and comfortable.

It was our first visit to Eastbourne and we were surprised by how attractive the resort is. We look forward to returning in the season so that we go to some of the theaters and entertainment centers.

The deal itself was great, included breakfast and a cream tea for two as well as the stay for £69 which is a bargain. The location was great and just where we wanted to be. There was a function on at the hotel which didn’t directly affect us but later there were a lot of people up and down the lift which unfortunately was next to our room and along the corridor however this didn’t go on for too long.
