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.

Rooms are gorgeous and the staff are always friendly and helpful. All you can eat buffet breakfast served in the light bright restaurant with while linen and chandeliers. A relaxing break for a sensible price.

The shower in the very rounded bath was a bit dangerous. Bathrooms could do with updating.

Hotel room and staff all great but the buffet cooked breakfast was a let down , the food get ruined in those steamed containers better just on an open Hot Plate not covered over where it broils not great for sausages or bacon.

We had a very nice stay, food, rooms, all very pleasant. When we checked in the receptionist wasn't over friendly hence good for staff. Everyone else who we dealt with during the stay was really friendly.

Although we were on a Travelzoo special offer staff everything was very good - from the scones and prosecco to breakfast. Staff very friendly too but not overly so.

Lovely hotel, very pleasant staff from reception, to waiters/waitresses through to the breakfast. Room was fine, water was a bit difficult to use as it was very cool during the afternoon but very hot in the morning. We originally planned to bring our small dog but changed our mind however the hotel had left two bowls and a small bag for him, nice touch. Super cream tea and a terrific breakfast full of local suppliers wares. Very happy with the hotel, take advantage of the £1 parking ticket but it was difficult trying to find a spot.

Parking was difficult but if you can get a spot, make sure you get the £1 tickets from the hotel !
