I booked a single room here on 5th Feb for the Mumford and Sons GOTR stopover. Travelling from Belfast for the second day of the festival, I called the hotel from the airport to confirm ETA with the hotel, only to be told that ALL Booking.com rooms had been cancelled due to an electrical fault in the building?? and that...

I would rate this ZERO if i could. We had also booked to stay 2 nights at the Crown for the Mumford and Sons festival weekend. We booked through booking.com. We knew that Lewes would be completely booked out, and had been pleased to book and get confirmation of the Crown booking back in February 2013. We knew it was...

If you a expecting a smart, renovated, stylish hotel you will be disappointed. If you are expecting a hotel that was once lovely but hasn't been decorated or maintained for 30 years, with friendly staff in a great location in a lovely town then you will not be disappointed. Our booking was fine. I confirmed by telephone. Fixtures and fittings...

We had booked 2 nights for tonight and Saturday - Mumford & Sons are in town. I had not checked Trip Advisor before booking but became concerned following a comment about the hotel from a colleague who lived in Lewes. Telephoned The Crown last night to be told that the booking was fine and they would see us today. Received...

I'm afraid I can't comment on the state of this hotel on the inside as they wouldn't honour my confirmed booking and so I didn't ever actually get inside. However, I have no reason to doubt the rest of the reviews on here that it simply awful. We booked and had a confirmation email and a week before arriving decided...

Lesson learnt, I must remember to check trip advisor when making bookings in future. Booked the Crown through late rooms, used to know the owners many years ago so not sure if its the same. Our experience was the same as others reported. Turned up to check in, waited 15 mins to be told by the manageress that my card...

We booked this hotel through Late Rooms but made the error of not checking the reviews.......big mistake!! We noted one review where a guest turned up only to find there was no record of a booking. We therefore decided to phone the 'hotel' the day before to check, we were told the booking was confirmed. After a three hour drive...

The Crown Inn has to be some modern day bad joke! In the middle of this beautiful town is this hovel that with all our laws on health and safety, building regulations, licensed premises etc I'm amazed that this place is even able to operate! Why oh why are they allowed to even advertise on all the web hotel booking...

We had a one stay night and as we were paying £80 for a double room we were expecting a nice comfy inn - didn't bother to check on trip advisor as our friends had already booked the room for us. The hotel itself was dirty and smelly, our room was dusty and the bathroom was a tiny, grubby worn...

I booked this through LateRooms, then cancelled the day after when I found more suitable accommodation. But they charged me anyway. When I asked for my money back they wouldn't even speak to me, and put the phone down on me – and Late Rooms – let alone give me my money back. Obviously I will be calling the authorities...
