There is no doubt that this old hotel is not quite what it used to be but thats not the land ladys fault, enterprise inns carry the blame there, however we were warmly welcomed and looked after superbly during our two day stay, the food was fine and the beers excellent, an intresting clientel but knowledgable about the lovely town...

This has to be the worst place we have ever stayed in. Our room was cold,very dirty(the cobwebs on the coving we big enough to be decorative features),in fact the room bore no resemblance to the Internet photographs.The carpet was dirty,even the brass nobs and bed frame were dirty.The whole place wanted a good clean,refurbishing and redecorating.This was not good....

We visited on a soggy Wednesday lunch time. The landlady was very welcoming which we appreciated. The beer and wine were both very nice as was the BLT with chips we both had for lunch. Very reasonable prices. Just stayed in the front bar which was quite cosy and made for a simple but enjoyable lunch.

Having read the dreadful reviews here, we were very worried that we were going to find ourselves with nowhere to stay on the night of 27th September. Several phone calls to try and check that they had our reservation did not reassure. However, when we arrived Karen greeted us in a friendly manner and showed us to our room, which... More

Several weeks ago we booked this hotel on line (they took payment for this) for today (13/09/14). We discovered yesterday that they had cancelled the room with no explanation. We have a family celebration this weekend in Lewes and due to the bike race going through the town all hotels are full. We have a ruined weekend that we had... More

Stayed with 3 friends in June in 2 double rooms. Our experience echoes all of the other reviewers. The photo's in the last review are spot on and tell their own story. I wonder whether this set up is actually a cheap scam. Despite years of damning reviews and dire reputation amidst the whole of Lewes, why has the management... More
