Thank you for your lovely review of your stay with us at Berkeley House this month. It was great to meet you both and I enjoyed our chats over breakfast particularly! Lewes is a lovely town (I know I'm biased) but I'm glad you found it made a good stopover for your visit to Glyndebourne. Hopefully, we'll be on the... More

We found Berkeley House through TripAdvisor, and are very glad that we did so, but I had to hunt for it again to write this review and couldn't understand why it seemed to have slipped so low in the ranking of B&Bs. Then I discovered that - to my puzzlement - it is graded as an hotel. As a B&B... More

Amanda D, Owner at Berkeley House, responded to this review

You're right! We are a B&B now, but in a previous incarnation Berkeley House used to operate as a Hotel (more rooms, dinner service and bar), so perhaps that legacy remains in the world of TripAdvisor administration. However, I'm very glad you did find us and even more pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We do enjoy making sure people... More

We stayed in a lovely basement double room with excellent amenities, clean and crisp linen and a small kitchen. The owner, Amanda, was extremely helpful, kind and welcoming. She and her partner Adam were also most knowledgeable about things to do in Lewes and the surrounding area. Breakfast was delicious, with generous portions and great choice.

Thank you for your great review, Ed. We very much enjoyed having your family to stay during your travels in the UK and we're glad the Apartment was comfortable and relaxing stopover for you. We hope to see you again next year, perhaps! All the best, Amanda and Adam More

We booked for 2 nights to include an evening at Glyndebourne. Parking is limited in this conservation area but we were well advised by Amanda, and in the event were able to park outside with a £2 ticket for each 24 hour period. The house is grade 2 listed and is in a terrace of similar properties in Albion Street,... More

What a great review! Lots of detail and lots of new photos too - thank you for posting them for people to see. My only regret with the house is that the rooms are not a little larger (I agree the Blue room could do with a bigger bed - I'll give that some more thought). Then I think we'd... More

The Berkeley is situated centrally in Lewes and is a good base from which to explore the town. There are a number of places of historical interest and plenty of places to relax over a coffee. We had the Green Room, which was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. There is a lovely courtyard where you can relax and enjoy a... More

Hi Alison and Gary. Thank you for your great review and for recommending us. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and, moreover, enjoyed Lewes too. It's a great town and there's plenty to explore and do, as you discovered. We're glad you liked the Green room - we're very pleased with its recent makeover, although we perhaps should... More

This was our second visit for our annual trip to Glyndebourne. This time Amanda asked if we would like her to organise our picnic - a new venture. It was all perfect - somewhere cool and unrushed to change, the delicious picnic all ready for us at a very reasonable price, a quiet bed for the night with a picture... More

Had a really nice one-night stay at Berkeley House's Blue Room in June. Amanda was lovely, as was the room, ensuite bathroom (the shower was incredible), and breakfast. We sadly didn't have time to take advantage of the roof terrace! Will definitely be staying here again if we are in Lewes.

Although Glyndebourne regulars this was the first time we had stayed down. Lewes is charming and the Berkeley House made us very welcome from the moment we arrived early afternoon. Comfortable, very smart and clean. Lovely breakfast around the kitchen table with other guests and our host. We will be back!

Nigel, thank you so much for your wonderful review. We agree - Lewes really is a charming town and coupled with Glyndebourne round the corner it's a great place for a day or two's break. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Berkeley House and we shall be delighted to see you again soon! All the very best, Amanda. More

We had a very nice stay in this nice little B&B. The owner was nice and helpful, even after it turned out there had been a slight misunderstanding with our booking. Breakfast was very good as well, especially the yogurt with fruits. Will come back any time.

Thank you so much for your kind review. I'm so pleased you had a good stay with us and that everyone was comfortable, despite the initial misunderstanding.

I stayed briefly last night, before a morning engagement in Falmer. The blue room is beautifully done, small and well appointed with everything you could want (inc free wifi), including a view and fresh air. It's very quiet too being at the back of the house.

Hi Peter. Thank you so much for your excellent review. The Blue room is one of my favourites as it has such a pretty view over the hidden back gardens of the High Street properties, particularly in the summer. Although it is on the small side, it's great for a one or two day stay for a couple, or even... More
