Corporate Social Responsibility or C.S.R - What is it?

One simple definition is that CSR is about how businesses and organisations - no matter how big or small - manage themselves to produce an overall positive impact on society and the environment.

The BEST WESTERN Lansdowne Hotel recognises that we have an obligation to CSR and it is our declared policy to carry out all reasonably practical measures to improve environmental performance.

  • We recycle cardboard, paper, glass and plastic.
  • We fit energy saving light bulbs wherever possible throughout the Hotel
  • Bed linen and towel policy in place
  • We aim to source food locally to reduce food miles
  • Waste cooking oil is recycled

There is always more we can do and this list is constantly updated to ensure we do all we can to minimise our carbon footprint. We want to make sure our impact on the planet is a positive one.



​Eastbourne Parking Controls

East Sussex County Council have succeeded in imposing parking charges throughout Eastbourne Town Centre and along the seafront.

These charges run from 8.00 a.m. until 6.00 p.m. seven days a week.

East Sussex County Council have now revised their parking scheme as far as hotel guests are concerned.

​Revised Parking Controls (from 1st April 2013):

There is street parking available at the hotel, which is metered daily between 8am and 6pm, the hotel has daily permits which can be purchased at reception for £1 per day.

​Revised Parking Controls (from 1st November 2013):

Parking controls have been suspended for Winter. From Jevington Gardens towards Beachy Head, restrictions have been lifted. 

Parking on Jevington Gardens and Compton Street behind the hotel remains free at this point in time, but it will of course be difficult to find spaces.

The hotel leases 18 garages at the rear of the hotel and rents these out to guests at a nightly charge. 

The garages are available on a first come first served basis, and can be reserved at the time of booking your room.

Blue badge holders continue to be able to park for free in any pay and display areas for an unlimited time as long as their blue badge is on show correctly.

Please note that the hotel does not accept any responsibility for any vehicles that may incur a fine. 

For further information on parking and a map of parking restrictions please visit Eastbourne Borough Council's website.
