Think others stayed at a different Lansdowne Hotel!

Good location. Would like to know how they grade their rooms; we had two Executive rooms, one was good the other half the size and the shower room like a black hole but main complaint was the food. ... more

Catherine Clifford, Owner at Best Western Lansdowne Hotel, responded to this review
Dear 522suzied, I have just responded to your review of our hotel on google, Ill respond to you now on here too. The toilet seat and toilet roll holder I apologise for it should have been picked up on. These things are rarely missed as I have a very good team so that was an unfortunate error. Im also sorry you thought the room was dated. We have a rolling refurbishment program and as Im sure you can imagine, with the year we have just had this came to an abrupt holt! I am picking up on this again in the next few weeks. I will point out that we are privately owned and with 102 rooms to get round these things take time and money. You didn't mention on your google review the issues you had with the carnival and that is something that is simply beyond our control! The actual carnival going passed the hotel would only have lasted for several minutes so it simply was not something that disrupted any of our guests. The mattress is perhaps your opinion - mattress comfort can be very subjective. We have had no other complaints to date. As far as the windows, I will look into this but sometimes they just need adjustment. As far as us not being able to offer you breakfast, you are right about us being 'too busy'. When you book Room Only, we do not guarantee anywhere that we can provide breakfast. With staffing as it is at the moment we must ensure that those who have booked and payed for breakfast get a good service.
