I stayed here recently. The staff were very good - the receptionist very kindly carrried my bag to my room - that rarely happens nowdays. My room only had a large opening window onto a fire escape so clearly this could not be left open all night - there needs to be a way of doing this - I like... More

We ate a meal here recently with our elderly aunt. The staff here are very nice, and are kind to their guests. Many of the people dining were residents. The food was okay, but very small portions for us, but adequate maybe for the older client. Tiny roll offered with our soup. A small slice and a half of meat,... More

A peculiarly English seaside hotel catering for an elderly clientele of whom the staff appeared to take great care. The Northern suited us as we were travelling with an older relative. There was nothing wrong with our room nor the service. However, it is hotel for a particular generation.

Our double room was newly refurbished with every facility - very comfortable. The food was once again excellent with good choices. The management and staff are ever so friendly and yet still respectful. Bexhill is a great place to visit and the Northern Hotel is the perfect place to stay. We shall return! Colin and Pat Garwood

I really think this hotel should indicate that it caters for an older clientele, making it totally unsuitable for a family. It was evident by the smell permeating the hotel and the corridors that food was being prepared for lunch or dinner, but it was not a pleasant smell at all! The room we were shown was old fashioned and... More

We had a family wake here recently, and the Northern Hotel provided us with a buffet, and function room. The food was absolutely wonderful. It was hot, plentiful and nicely presented. The staff were very attentive, and helpful too. I can throughly recommend the Northern Hotel for functions. They are a local family business and we need to support them.

Travelling to East Sussex to attend the 'International Keane band fans gathering' I chose Bexhill for my stay. And I’ve found that the Northern Hotel was the perfect choice for my visit to this picturesque village, so related to the band. (See Keane’s ‘Sovereign Light Café’ video or Strangeland album cover art...!) Conveniently close to the station (just two blocks)... More
