... new purchase I was astounded at how huge they were. I went
to Nick and said something just isn’t right I feel like I am wearing a nappy. I
then grabbed the packaging and read the back. Yes I had bought pads for ladies
with bladder issues. Needless to say Nick thought it was hysterical and I am
now left with a double pack of ultra absorbent pads and no bladder weakness to
require them. Next time I will stop and read the packaging before I ...
horrible ferry crossing in the history of mankind and took in some awesome
villages, castles and churches as well. Our tour guides were great and the tour
group was a great mix, which always makes a big difference on these type of
trips. The festival itself was a completely unique experience. There were Vikings,
Scottish bands, a replica long ship, drinking, lots of fire and plenty of
traditional Scottish dancing. One of the highlights was the ...
... Seven Sisters! The Seven Sisters is the beautiful cliffside along the coast near East Sussex, with basically seven cliffs that are very high! It took us 50 min by bus to get there and the weather was quite bad! It was soooo windy that we couldn't go up on the actuall cliffs 'cuz there was a risk we might blow out! :P From the busstation we had to walk about 25 min to get there, and as soon as we decided to go home, it started raining. It was really fun to sit on the bus home ...
And so, eventually we landed in Gatwick and stepped right into the 1960s. I had never been to Gatwick airport and so was previously unaware of the existence of a time portal which forced the main terminal to stay in 1965. After our virtually perfect European train experiences, our train into London was delayed for half an hour due to a signal failure north of Croydon, which was of little surprise to someone used to the British rail network. ...
... pictures, but until I saw it "live", I couldn't feel the mystery. Again, it is amazing to think that this structure was built by prehistoric man, with continued use by several civilizations to follow. We watched a woman with interest. She was dressed in a white cotton dress, with a dark cape, a flower ring around her head, and she carried a staff with a goat's head. We were told she was one of a number of individuals whose purpose it to banish the pagan ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lansdowne Place Hotel Brighton
Stayed here for 1 night on a weekend. The hotel is well located for the seafront, but parking was a pain - no spaces left in their garage, so we had to park a fair distance from the hotel. I think this would be the same for most hotels in the area. On street parking is expensive!
Not Quite ready
We stayed in the Landsdowne place hotel for 2 nights and had mixed views. Firstly the negative - On arrival we were told there was a £10 per night parking fee (which wasn't advertised anywhere on the web site). When we arrived in our bedroom it had scaffolding against the window and workmen walking passed out room. Whilst I appreciate hotels need to be decorated, they should have told us this on booking. The rooms service breakfast was incorrect both mornings and we were double charged for the pleasure. There was no menu, TV guide or phone guide in the room. To call reception I used my own mobile to dial in. On the positive side, it will be lovely when it is finished, the rooms were tastefully deocrated and very comfortable and the staff were polite.
We stayed at the Lansdowne Place for a single night and that was enough. The hotel is being refitted 'Boutique' style but for the large part it is still antiquated and shabby. Our refitted room had a double bed squeezed in so tightly that you couldn't get to the other side without clambering over the top. The quality of the fixture and fittings didn't match the room rate, and in the race to be boutiquey, simple items like a pen and pad, a glass and a shaver power point had been omitted to keep it minimal I suppose.
Whilst undergoing major refurbishment, I think that even the refurbished parts were not of a high standard. Our superior kingsize room was only kingsize to the King of Lilliput. The space between the end of the bed and the wall was probably 15 cms! You had to walk sideways in order to get to the other side of the bed - not possible if of a large size! Total area for actually doing anything was probably a couple of square metres. Given lack of room the was no room for a bedside table on that side. Phone didn't work so couldn't test 24 hr room service. Lift obviously powered by a couple of batteries. The decor of the restaurant and bar area is someone over powering - some of the largest chairs I have ever seen (perhaps I had become a person of Lilliput and had therefore shrunk? Not conducive to a quiet chat as you were a few feet from your companion on the other side. For £140 per night room only not good value at all. Would only stay again if trapped in Brighton.
Very nice but lacking finishing touches
First impression of the hotel is scruffy but it is undergoing major refurbishment. Once in the reception you tend to be impressed but not impressed somehow - the lift wasn't sure whether to work and although the carpet was brand new there were paint footprints on it!!
The room was fabulous but it is just such a pity that there were paint splatters on the wardrobe and the finishing touches left a lot to be desired. If I were the management I'd be thinking twice about the workmanship being employed.
Overall a great rate was offered and everything else in Brighton is fabulous!
when we arrived we did not have a key to the room as had been lost and no spare so we were let in by a porter. The room was more like a single with a double bed in it however, very compact. When returning later to the hotel after a night out, the key to the room was still lost and there was no one around to let us in... we waited in the bar for some time before finally being let in! We were offered a replacement room the following night (with a key) and this was at least twice as large but sadly looking out onto scaffolding, (refurbishement underway). The breakfast in the morning was very hit and miss, they were apparantly short staffed, some folks had waited over 40 minutes for some toast and there was a general lack of items on the breakfast buffet. All in all, it was a very unusual weekend, somewhat reminicant of Fawlty Towers!
We spent a a recent weekend at the Lansdowne Place Hotel - formerly known as The Dudley Hotel.
Nice stay, good location
I stayed at the Dudley after booking a 2 nihgt stay on the internet. The location is great - far enough away from the centre so there is no noise but close enough to walk in (10 minutes to the pier). The staff are friendly and charming. There is a car park (bonus!!) and the food is great.
I will so be back!!
This hotel is in need of refurbishment. It is clean, but it is shabby.
A real gem in beautiful Brighton.
My husband and I have been regular and extremely satisfied guests at the Dudley for over 25 years...and we always look forward with keen anticipation to our next visit to England and of course, to our favourite hotel..The Dudley in beautiful Brighton.The hotel is close to the sea front, the rooms are very well appointed, the restaurant is to be recommended, and the staff are always so courteous and friendly and very helpful.We have been so fortunate to have discovered The Dudley all those years ago and we know you will be delighted too.We have many magical memories of our numerous visits.
