Dirty overall, filthy kitchen, extremely unpleasant landlady. Disrespectful to a family holding a wake for a young person. A real insult to Lewes, avoid it like the plague. There are much nicer places to go.

Did not get a chance to stay here as we were turned away upon arrival. Prebooked but our rooms were given away as an out of date card was declined which was obviously incorrect and no phone call to ask the reason why. Very rude and unhelpful and left stranded as everywhere else was fully booked. Glad anyway as it... More

Booked two rooms earlier in the year for a festival this weekend for one night. When we got to the hotel at 3pm we were told the rooms had been sold as the card that was given had been declined baring in mind she shouldn't have been trying to take money out on it as it was only to hold... More

We can only reiterate what others have found, staying at the Crown Inn. Absolutely the worst place we have ever stayed at. The room was disgusting . Light in the plastic toilet cubicle did not work. The double bed did not fit the four poster frame. When asked if it was normal practice to clean rooms daily and make the... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Dirty room. Mould in corridors and rubbish. Ensuite was a prefab cabin in corner which leaked water all over the floor. Please avoid at all costs. I am surprised health and safety haven't shut this place down. Must add though the owner was very pleasant when we left.

The reviews of this place are absolutely correct. We were going to the Rod Stewart concert and like previous reviewers struggled to find anywhere else. How the place has not been closed down I do not know - no toilet rolls only 1 towel which was like sandpaper despite asking for others these dId not materialise and had to ask... More

Hotel tired and tacky. Room clean but cold. Curtains were barely hanging on to their rail. Bed rickety; head board not attached to anything. Hallways dark and dingy likely to hide the holes in the walls and, in some places, I am sure, mould. Bare minimum recieved for big bucks paid for a night's accommodation. Breakfast was good and that... More
