Stayed here for a family wedding in Lewes. Room was very clean and comfortable. Shower was a bit on the small side but was fine. Breakfast wasn't included in price which is why I only give 4 stars. It worked out expensive to add on breakfast so we didn't bother. Got something outside of hotel. Overall a nice hotel with...

We chose this hotel as it was advertised as dog friendly, our dog was allowed in our room but nowhere else. It was a very hot day and we booked a meal for 8pm. The only place we could eat was a small terrace at the side of the hotel, in the shade by this time, so effectively in the...

Considerably cheaper than a Premier Inn but rooms were small and the menu very basic. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Hotel Guests seemed to avoid the Restaurant, which was not a good recommendation.

Nice clean room, friendly staff, comfortable bed. Ate out so cant comment on food. Easy to find and convenient quiet location. Don't be put off by the hospital or the proximity of the main road no noise at all.

Stayed here for one night due to a family party nearby. Lovely, old fashioned hotel, big spacious stairways and hallways with big old fashioned mirrors, had a relaxed and pleasant feel to it. Good value for money. Breakfast was very expensive so we chose to eat out instead. Walk in shower was tiny and very hard to move around in....

Staying for one night only we found it a relaxing experience. Our room was ready even though we arrived an hour early. The room was pleasant and very clean, beds were comfortable. Breakfast was excellent in the lovely restuarant. The building itself was interesting as it dated back to the late 1800s. Found all members of staff really friendly

Thank Ronald S
