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.

We checked in at 2pm on the Friday, no hassle, our room was on the top floor which pleased us as being an old hotel the floors are creaky. Our two friends who live nearby arrived at 3pm & we treated them to the vintage tea which was delicious. The waiter kindly reserved a table for us in the window & he was very attentive & polite. The breakfasts were lovely, with a great choice of cereals, breads & hot table with all the full English to help yourself.
