I had booked a room which, on arrival, then seemed inappropriate. The staff immediately moved us to another room, larger and much more convenient. They were happy to do this, despite it being the holiday period.

Well the photos and reviews when we booked looked good, but that was about as positive as I can be. You can see that parts of the hotel are being renovated but our room was tired. The bathroom in the room hadn't been cleaned very well with someone else's hair left behind. On the first of two nights we had...

This was our second stay in a fortnight. Rose of reservations was first class in making our reservation. Reception staff were kind and professional. The restaurant staff were first class. Our rooms 112 &312 have excellent views and were ideal for our needs. If one requires a comfortable stay at a reasonable rate then the Lansdowne is an excellent choice....

We chose this hotel as it is on the seafront and only 5 minutes walk to the pier. It is a little dated inside. We were initially told that the interconnecting rooms I had requested were not available as they were full, and our children were to be on a separate floor to ourselves. I explained that the rooms did...

Dear mcjimbo Thank you for your review of our hotel. I am pleased to read that you experienced a good check in and that you liked your room. Also that you had a good meal in the bar on your first night. Sorry that breakfast seemed 'chaotic'. Unfortunately breakfast at weekends are extremely busy as everyone comes down at once!...

Stayed on a voucher deal for overnight stay, dinner and breakfast. Could not fault the service or the room. Decided against having the dinner and went out but breakfast was very good. The staff at reception were very helpful and Helen behind the bar was fun with a dry, witty humour. I don't think there will be much call to...

Had 2 nights here & not disappointed. Staff were all very friendly, room was freshly renovated & clean overlooking the rear . Breakfast was plentiful & filling. Many lounges to relax in . Meal in the bar area was lovely.Such a great central location & would definately visit again & upgrade to sea view.
