Explore Hotel

Enjoy Eastbourne in wonderful comfort.

Be our guest at this charming, family-run, pet-friendly hotel in Eastbourne. The Best Western Lansdowne Hotel enjoys an excellent location on the seafront, with Beachy Head, the South Downs and Brighton all within easy reach. Boasting sea views that stretch across the south coast, it provides the perfect haven. Its traditional, cosy atmosphere will definitely appeal, while the seaside town itself has more than enough character to make your stay a memorable one.

From your peaceful seafront hotel in Eastbourne, you'll have ample opportunity to explore this pretty part of the world. East Sussex boasts hidden gems such as Herstmonceux Castle and Battle Abbey, giving the culture vultures amongst our guests the chance to see something new (or old, as the case may be). While the Best Western Lansdowne Hotel itself has plenty to keep you amused, were sure you'll find a spot of sea fishing from the pier or a hike in the South Downs hard to resist.

Our hotel guests also have access to 18 lock-up garages. Please obtain a parking voucher from the hotel reception.
