We stayed here as a base to see in the New Year and go to the football the next day. Rooms basic but breakfasts were excellent. We used their shuttle bus for the football and were very friendly yo away fans. Check which room you are booked into because not all had en-suite (there are some fussy people out there)... More

The room was cold when got in as the radiator didn't work, so we had to fire up a stand alone oil radiator provided, toilets were across the hall and no heating here either so a bit cold. The hotel is ok but needs a bit of attention, for instance, the toilet roll holder was swinging one screw, so the... More

Great place for a Sunday lunch. The only thing they serve on Sundays is a carvery and they are great value. Large portions of a choice of three meats with a large choice of vegetables, roast potatoes, pigs in blankets, yorkies with stuffing ball and delicious gravy. Make sure you're hungry if you go! Pleasant staff and relaxed atmosphere.

I stayed here for 8 nights in November 2015. I chose it primarily because of its location - close to the Nuffield Hospital. But, oh how I wish I had followed friends recommendations and stayed further away in a better hotel. I started to write a list of problems from the minute I walked into the room. The very, very...

food is fairly basic pub food but service was good and it came fairly quickly. Soup of the day was nice and the hunter chicken was a little burnt but tasty. Great views from outside and has a local feel

I stayed here for 1 night as I was attending the Years and Years concert at the Brighton Centre. Lovely location, quiet and peaceful. Staff were lovely and friendly. The accommodation was very basic but clean and an excellent place to stay for one or 2 nights

I stayed at the downs hotel for 4 nights and apart from serving me nobody spoke to me. I booked through Expedia paying £75 a night thinking it looked like a reasonable place to stay but the photos on the web site tell lies it is dull dingy and depressing. The chap that booked me in looked in awe at... More
