The Inn is very quiet partly because the rooms are only on one side of the hallway facing the canal. Nice room with balcony with canal view. Good toiletry products in bathroom. Very comfortable bed, sofa, two chairs, a desk and two more chairs, TV, bar, you get the idea. A few feet from shops and restaurants. Short drive to... More

The front desk people were extraordinarily helpful, courteous and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable with understated elegance as are the public areas, even the hallways are tastefully appointed. Every morning a lovely continental breakfast... More

I doubt that there is a better choice in Lewes than the Inn at Canal Square. If you find yourself not leaving Lewes, there's a notable cemetery across the street. Meanwhile, the Inn is perfectly situated, comfortable, good value and with large rooms. A decent buffet breakfast is included. Ask for a room above the second floor with a view... More

A lovely, charming Inn on the canal in Lewes! We stayed in a two story suite with an indoor and outdoor porch right on the canal! Full kitchen, washer and dryer, fireplace, a delightful European breakfast and very pleasant staff. Can't wait to return!
