This is a perfectly adequate hotel for a weekend in a seaside town. It's clean and everything works and the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was nice and not greasy and there is someone on duty all night so you can get in and out easily. We liked the location as it was handy and there is a large underground car park which is very affordable right next to it.

Room Tip: We had a partial sea view and the room was spacious with a decent sized bathroom. It was high up bu...

we only spent one night there during the 'Hastings bonfire event', but everything was clean. There was a trouser press, coffee facilities and hairdryer and we had a sea view. The room was warm and shower great! Didn't have time for breakfast though! spent worst nights elsewhere ....

Room Tip: room 3 with balcony and sea view

We stayed for 2 nights, rooms 28 and 29. Beware that although these have a sea view (not really that important), they are at the top of the hotel which means a climb up 8 sets of stairs (I think we counted 86 in total), often steep, with no lift. A bit of a struggle but not too bad - with bags it's a bit much.

The room was ok, beds were comfortable, it was clean, not massive but for the money (about £70 for a £65 for a double, £40 for a single) it was about right. Bathroom had soap and shower gel, the shower lacked pressure and as one reviewer also said was either super hot or cold - but again it was ok.

The door is locked most of the time so you need to ring a bell, that is a good thing for security reasons.

There was a bar/lounge which we didn't need to use.

All in all an ok hotel for the money in a good location, 3 stars as it was just right for the money.

Room Tip: 28 and 29 are the rooms in the top left corner as you look at the hotel photos.

Booked 2 nights at the Lansdowne for £70 per night. We were given room 2, ground floor at the back of the hotel. Dated decor, kind of looked a bit like a backpackers double room. Tiny ensuite with a awkward angled toilet (?) quite quirky, but not designed for larger people.

During the night we suffered with the constant bass from the neighbouring club, it was a Saturday night but management mentioned this was the case on a Thurs, Fri and Saturday every week. It is a very central hotel, so you do expect some noise but after 3 phone calls to the night porter (who really didnt care at all, kept telling me I must wait till 2am) I was very frustrated. We did get moved to a seafront room for the 2nd night, and I manged to get a refund of £20 only (as in managements eyes we had been upgraded which should have been enough to keep us happy).

The upgraded room was better quality, recently refurbished. Good ensuite facilities. The bed was one of those ones that could be turned into a twin but it has a hard bit running down the middle of it.

I left this hotel with a bad taste in my mouth, management are completely aware of an ongoing noise problem with a neighbouring business (They offered to show me the letters of complaint to the Council) but continue to sell the rooms. I didnt feel like my complaints were taken seriously by the night porter, which only added to the frustration of being kept awake.

The location is good, 10mins walk to the Railway Station, right on the beach, 10 mins walk to the Old Town.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room facing the front of the hotel

The best relationship between price and accomodation, kindness, helpfulness, respond to requests,... that I ever experienced. Lovely seaview and a bit away from the noise of the street along the beach. Very good location: just in the middle between the old city and St Leonards. Some of the rooms are spacious, some are very small...

Room Tip: Ask for a room with seaview: nr 14, 16 or the room right above those two.

Booked just for the one night double room with seaview, the room was OK and the Seaview was excellent just a shame the shower alternated between either scorching hot or freezing cold. certainly wakes you up though! The mattress was far too soft and saggy for my liking.
I supose it didn't start very well when I was asked to pay the total in advance on arrival before having even seen the room. The guy who booked me in was totally disinterested and the fact I had to climb six flights of cramped stairs with my luggage because the lift was out of order didn't seem to bother him at all.Let alone offer any help.

The location is good not far from the Old Town center and you can park right outside for free until 9.00am but how this place ever got 3 stars is beyond me.

Room Tip: Another Hotel would be my choice

I've stayed here several times over the last few years. The check in process was simple and the rooms are always clean and comfortable. I enjoy staying here and either take the single room with a sea view or a double room for sole occupancy to the rear of the hotel. I have tried most of the hotels in Hastings and would recommend the Lansdowne for friendliness and convenience. It's not a 5* hotel, but it is comfortable for a few nights at a good price.

Room Tip: Book directly with the hotel to get the best on offer
