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!

I booked two colleagues into the static caravan for a work trip last month as I thought it would give them more space and freedom than a hotel room. However they had two miserable nights there as it was so cold plus the TV didn't work properly and they said it generally wasn't nice. I complained about this after the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and chose the hotel due to the prices and the fact that it has free parking which is rare in and around Brighton. You can stay in some fabulous hotels in Brighton but you pay through the nose for the privilege and probably wont get the great service you get here...also parking in town... More
