After our wedding reception and prior to our honeymoon we stayed here for two nights. 27 & 28th August. A superb room + en-suite, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Mr. & Mrs. Burman were charming hosts and the breakfasts were excellent; good portions freshly cooked and tasty. It exceeded our already high expectations. Yes, based on our experiences we certainly will... More

Send a perfectly nice email asking if there was any group booking discount as I am to be married next year, and there will be approx 30 people staying over. All I go was an email back saying 'no', nothing else!! How rude! Also a shame as my husband to be and I were thinking about staying ourselves. We definitely... More

Stayed here whilst walking the SDW. First impressions are good with lovely grounds. Owner greeted us and the second sentence was he could not take us up to the car park in the morning as he was not insured. It begs the question why did he not inform our tour operator so they could organise us a taxi. I gritted... More

Booked this on basis of website stating 'luxurious B&B and self catering cottage' So booked 1 night for relative in B&B whilst we stayed in cottage. We viewed the Ash room relatives stayed in B&B(that was beautiful-clean, modern certainly worthy of the 'luxurious ' description) however this could not be said of the cottage which was stuck in an 80's...

It's rare to find such space and luxury in the countryside, and although it was for just an overnight stay, we booked Tovey Lodge. The hosts, Roy and Diane were out of town, but their housekeeper, Ingrid, welcomed us into their lovely home. Our bedroom, the maple suite, was enormous, almost luxurious like a 5 star hotel, with a gorgeous... More

A B&B should have a great bed, breakfast, host and setting- and Tovey Lodge ticks every box. Perfect for walks on the Downs and so close to Brighton too, plus a lovely room, really comfy bed and then one of the best breakfasts I've ever had!! Roy and Diane are really friendly hosts and have a great set up here,... More

We booked with Booking.com and were not informed the booking would not be accepted after 8pm. After taking a wrong turning and manoeuvring the country lanes we arrived to a locked-up house. A young guest lent me her phone to ring the manager and he was quite abrupt and hung up on me after telling me I would not be... More

We were made to feel welcome immediately and throughout our stay. It is situated 20 minutes or so from the hustle and bustle of brighton and is great to come back to after a long... More

We had an excellent 2 night stay at Tovey Lodge We booked a family room and were nervous; family rooms are often cramped and come with a slight resentment from the owners, but at Tovey Lodge, the room was huge, comfy and the kids' beds were far better than the usual Z beds. Roy and Diane made us and our... More
