Within Lewes, the location of the Prospect is excellent between the High Street and the Park. Our room was clean and a decent size, the bed was very comfortable so we both had a good night sleep. We used the double room which meant that we had to cross the corridor to go to the bathroom but that wasn't a...

I am sorry you felt breakfast was too early. It does say - on the breakfast request - that I am happy to serve breakfast at other times if asked. The Lane is narrow, but all cars, rangerovers and small transit vans negotiate it. I tell guests, when they book, that the Lane is a medieval 'twitten'. There is the...

If you're looking at this, you probably already know that Lewes is an hour from London and 15 min from Brighton, but it's a charming (and buzzing) town in its own right. The Prospect doesn't have many room, but it's a real pleasure for the lucky few. It's just a 5 min walk from the Lewes train station, and has...

This was the second time I have visited here with family, can't recommend it enough. It's slap in the centre of Lewes and has quiet a brilliant view from the breakfast room. Lynn and Nick are the most lovely people to speak to and have a great knowledge for the local area. The breakfasts are superb and a great choice...

This is a fantastic b&b right in the middle of Lewes - comfy rooms with everything you need, delicious huge homemade breakfasts and kind, relaxed hosts. Very handy for the station/high street/wedding venue Pelham House.

I highly recommend the Prospect B&B. When travelling solo a warm welcome is especially important and I was made to feel at home and very welcome. The room was lovely, the view at breakfast delightful and the breakfast plentiful and delicious. Excellent value for money and a very convenient central location.

My partner and I stayed for one night as a short break in Lewes and Lynn and Nick made us feel incredibly welcome. It's a lovely place, the room was spotless as was the private bathroom, and the breakfast was very hearty with lots of choice. We'd definitely stay there again.

I was in Lewes for a wedding and was able to walk from The Prospect to the church, station and the reception at the Town Hall, leaving my vehicle outside the house. After a 5 hour drive from Exeter, the pot of tea and naughty biscuits out on the back patio were most welcome. My room was really well appointed...

I stayed for one night at The Prospect and I was delighted with my stay. Lynn made me welcome as soon as I arrived with a pot of tea and biscuits which was taken in the garden. The room was bright and spotlessly clean with a large shower room. Breakfast was taken in the living room with spectacular views of...

Great location 1 minute from high street and Lewes Castle and a short walk to everywhere. Car parking on site which is a huge help. Easy walk to railway station. I have never had as huge a breakfast as I had for the three mornings, felt a bit guilty but it was that good. Room is very private and excellent...

This was a return trip; having stayed for 2 nights in February with my sister I wanted my husband to experience possibly the best b&b I have ever stayed in. He did! The room was equipped with everything you might need, we had a fruit bowl and moreish biscuits to dip into as well as every variety of tea and...

“There is a twin room with ensuite and a double room. The double room has access to the patio but you would need to cross the corridor to reach the bathroom. Note that bedrooms are on the ground flor while the dining room is upstairs, hence the views!”
