Comfortable rooms pleasant staff. Nice breakfast. Clean environment. Little noisy due to road traffic but this was mentioned in their description so no surprise. The room was nice and warm. It was very East to park

Great family run B&B! Staff are very attentive, look after any queries and are very welcoming. I visited mid week and was surprised to hear how busy it was then! I'd like to take a weekend return visit so I can really feel the buzz of the bars! Looking forward to coming again!!

We chose the gather inn as it offered a room with accommodation for 5 - we are a family of 2 adults and 3 small kids. We arrived at 6.05pm on Sunday which was, unfortunately 5 mins too late to order food - one of the reasons we had booked a guest house which provided evening meals. Despite having clicked... More

From the website it looks good but is very poorly run, stag parties in rooms next to families with small children is always going to lead to complaints. This hotel advertises through stag party agencies but on arrival are told it is not a stag friendly place and threaten you with eviction not just on arrival but every time they... More

We booked this B & B based on the information shown on Trip Advisor. The free parking referred to turned out to be on street public parking. The room was tiny. There were trucks roaring past every couple of minutes outside the window as it appeared to be on the edge of an industrial estate. It is miles from Brighton... More

Thank you for your feedback, I wish you had spoken to us about this though as we had no idea how you felt. We have 3 doubles in total and they are different shapes and sizes so we might have been able to move you. I know you were unhappy about the fact that we didn't have a car park... More

Ate here recently with a friend. Has steak with blue cheese sauce and was lovely. Lovely staff and decor. Lots always going on and two for one cocktails which I hope to try very soon! Ive heard the bed and breakfast is very good too. So for anyone wanting a stay by the sea this is the place to be!!

Thought we would try this place because of the recent good reviews on Trip Advisor and was very disappointed. I was excited as i was starving and there was only one other couple in there so assumed our food would be quick but it took an hour!!! I ordered Mediterranean vegetables on skewers and a jacket potato. The potato was... More

Thank you for your review, You definitely should bring any complaints to our attention, we would always try to correct any errors. I will speak to the Chef about the quality of the skewers and look to improving them or even removing them from the menu if they aren't up to our high standard. The local butcher we use supplies...

Popped in on the off chance with friends, had THE most amazing steak!! I am wheat intolerant and struggle to find places to eat that I can have a whole meal and not just meat and veg! It was lovely to find a restaurant offering rice as a side!! The steak was tasty and cooked perfectly! The veg al dente... More
