I chose this hotel due to access to parking. Only paid £1 for ticket until we checked out. Spacious room and wonderful Seaview. Bathroom is basic with decent toiletries. Really good bed and comfortable pillows. Reasonably priced drinks at the bar. The whole building is quaint but have new clean carpets and still smelled of new paint during our stay.... More

The hotel is right on the front and just a few minutes walk from the theatres. It was so clean everywhere. The room that I had was massive, there was a bath AND a walk in shower. Unfortunately the water pressure was a joke. The staff that I met were all so helpful and friendly. The bar finishes serving food... More

We stayed for 2 nights (room 132 I think?) and the sea view was amazing. Clean spacious room. We ordered a lot of room service, food was hot and tasty. (£4 tray charge tho...) staff super friendly. Good mix of old and young at hotel. Will be booking again next year! :-D

I have stayed here a number of times and was a regular user of The Landsdowne for work purposes. I have always been highly satisfied with the hotel but the last two visits the following day I have been covered in bites all over my body. I can only assume this has occurred in bed. I will not be staying... More

Spent a midweek break here and couldn't fault the hotel. The reception staff were extremely welcoming and our room was really comfortable and had been recently decorated . We liked all the different rooms and alcoves where you could relax with a drink or just take afternoon tea. Breakfast and service in the breakfast room was also above average Would... More

We stayed for just a night, but had such a wonderful time, packing so much into our stay, it felt like a break away for a week. The hotel staff were amazing, the rooms so comfortable, newly refurbished, tastefully decorated to provide a comfortable, relaxing stay.
