Without doubt the best b & b in Lewes. Spotless rooms, excellent breakfast, and a charming and interesting hostess. Very central in the town, being just behind the main street, and in the old part of the town. parking close by. I'm a regular guest, and book a year in advance to ensure I can stay there.

Castle Banks proved ideal for a weekend break and we had a great stay. Angela is a charming and helpful host, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Our twin room was attractively decorated and furnished with lots of nice touches. Beds exceptionally comfortable. The bathroom (not en suite but a few yards away) had a bath and over bath... More

We enjoyed four comfortable days in 4 Castle Banks, Lewes. Our room was very clean, spacious and tastefully furnished. Angela's breakfasts were delicious and she was a very hospitable hostess. The B&B is situated in a calm, narrow street though close to the High Street and the ruins of Lewes Castle.

We really enjoyed the most part of our stay at Castle bank cottage. It is well located yet quiet and comfortable with a good breakfast. We would have given it a much higher rating but for the following. Having had breakfast at 8:30 we went back to our room to gathering our belongings together and to use the bathroom facilities...

I stayed at Castle Banks Cottage with two friends whilst visiting the area for a long weekend. We were very impressed by the quality of the accommodation. It is very clean and comfortable, and ideally suited for the town centre. Angela is very friendly and looked after us very well. Highly recommended !

Cute cottage, close to Lewes Castle and all the town's attractions. Clean attractive rooms in a quiet area. Angela is an experienced travel writer and hostess and will make you feel very welcome. Her breakfasts are great, especially the poached eggs.

Thanks to a last-minute cancellation we managed to get a reservation at Castle Banks for the August bank holiday weekend. Angela was a accommodating hostess from the off, graciously handling our accidental late arrival & making us feel welcome. The house sits on a quiet street, ideally located for exploring the village & making an evening trip to any one... More

Castle Banks offers the best, most central location of the Lewes B&Bs, in a quiet lane just behind the castle. And just around the corner from Lewes Arms and Elephant & Castle, two of the best pubs in town. The latter hosts a folk club every Saturday night. An experienced travel writer, the lovely hostess is always able to suggest... More
