The Lansdowne Hotel
Ranked #8 of 16 Hotels in Leamington Spa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 September 2011

This Hotel/B&B was an ideal location for our 2 night trip to Royal Leamington Spa to see a concert. It is very clean and friendly and though they only offer bed and breakfast it was very good. It is located in a quiet street but near enough to shops and nightlife.

It is within an easy walk, 5/10 minutes, of shops around the centre of the town and a beautiful park. It is small and very family friendly. The Lansdowne has small rooms and you get a TV and there was tea and coffee making facilities and the bathroom was adequate but you would need to bring your own shower gel.

The breakfast, I liked it.
There was a good range of cereal, fruit juice tea and coffee. The bacon and eggs were perfect, but the sausage and the beans do serve only to fill up a few square centimetres of spare plate space, but in saying that I did enjoy it.

The Hotel has some off road parking and also has a limited number of spaces at the front of it; Leamington Spa is a nice town with some good architecture, gardens and quite lively nightlife.
I never was in the town before and it surprised me how much it had in it.

The management team are very pleasant and I would certainly go back again.

Room Tip: i stayed in room no.9 and was happy with it.

This was a great temporary base for us as we went on a family visit to Royal Leamington Spa to see family. It is very clean and friendly and though they only offer bed and breakfast it was very good.
It is within an easy walk, a few hundred yards, of shops around the centre of the town and a beautiful park. It is small and very family friendly.
They are digging up the road outside at the moment but the heavy machinery should be a good bit up the road by now.
The hotel tried to charge us for paying our bill with a credit card but most people do not carry huge sums of cash with them. Anyway, what happened to profit? Is that not supposed to cover overheads? Does the payment of a bill come to business people as a surprise that they "Forgot" to include in their pricing structure?
When queried the owner forgot about the charge. Would certainly go back again.

Room Tip: The best room is number 9. It seeemed very spacious.

The Lansdowne has small rooms and some tired decor but the management team are very pleasant. The room facilites are OK in that the TV and kettle were modern and efficient. As mentioned elsewhere, the shower gel is woefully inadequate and it is time to invest in some better towels.
The breakfast -- I liked it. There was a good range of cereal, fruit juice te and coffee. The bacon and eggs were perfect, but the sausage and the beans do serve only to fill up a few square centimetres of spare plate space. I never understand why toast is cold at breakfast either - do they toast 100 slices at 7 a.m?
The location is good, in a quieter street ( at least in a town plagued by insomniac boy racers) and very close to shops and nightlife. Given that there is little price difference, if I had had a car I would have chosen one of the characterless hotels with better facilities outside the town... but I didn't. Overall, not bad but attention to a few details would improve it considerably.

I spent just the one night at the Lansdowne whilst on a day trip to Leamington Spa. The Hotel itself is modest with some off road parking and is a ten minute walk from the centre of the town. The night I stayed, there was some disturbance in an adjoining room (the police arrived at one point) which did disturb me for an hour or so that night. Really this was a problem with the guests that night rather than the hotel and the manager did apologise and seemed genuinely concerned that I may have been disturbed. The room itself was small and basic but quite comfortable and clean. I am a light eater and the breakfast was ample for me although (referring to a previous reviewers comment) I did smile when I saw the sausage! Leamington Spar is a nice town with some good architecture, gardens and quite lively night life.
If I was to have another short stay in the town then I would be happy to stay at the Lansdowne although I would probably look elsewhere for a longer stay.

Small but clean room, the bed was so soft we had back ache the next day. cold breakfast with 1 (really, just one) of the smallest sausages I have ever had in a hotel and a teaspoon of baked beans! given this is the only meal they serve you would think they would make more of an effort Friendly staff, but they really scrimp on the breakfast. . Take your own toiletries- the shower gel is rubbish. Close to Leamington town centre which is the saving grace of this mediocre guest house.

Room Tip: Take your own toiletries.

mainly very good hotel . Towels not up to standard, scimped on some breakfast items eg beans. Having beans on toast came with about 20 beans and one slice of very small unbuttered toast.. asked for more and did oblige. It made us laugh as this then was cold.Very friendly staff and i would come again to leamington. If they get breakfast sorted we may come back.
