We arranged a wake for our dearly departed friend and chose the venue as it has splendid views from high up, over fields to the sea. The buffet was nicely arranged for our arrival but what was really lovely was the way all the photos and memorabilia had been laid out in readiness so that our group could readily scan... More

My room didn't have a bathroom, there was a shared one for the whole floor. Clearly not maintained as there was faeces all up the back of the toilet and the shower had hair all over it. Disgusting. No bathmats either so you're free to slip and break your leg on the wet bathroom floor! The corridors smelt like sour... More

We have been staying here regularly for the past 5 years since both our children decided on Sussex University. We have always found it to be very comfortable, great staff and very convenient for the buses into Brighton, saving you hefty car parking fees. We didn't have an evening meal this time but the breakfast is delicious.

Beautiful building with picturesque views. The decor is blande as was the food! There is so much you could with this pub, especially as it's the only one in woodingdean. It could be great but it needs a lot of work. The paint work on the building is hideous, grey for a country looking pub, really? The decor is tired... More

Friendly staff. Hotel comfortable. Needs some some attention. Outstanding view of sea and downs. First breakfast not brilliant. Next morning excellent. Would definitely go back. This is also a dog friendly hotel.

Stay here with my parents when they dropped me off for university. Lovely, clean hotel, nicely decorated rooms, friendly staff and great (and cheap!) pub food. Definitely worth a visit if you are heading to Brighton - it's easy to get into the centre!
