We stayed here 1 night as part of a visit to Glyndbourne. We arrived later than planned due to heavy traffic and were in a bit of a rush but we were well looked after, cab was ordered while we changed etc. and we were made to feel at home. Our room (Green Room) was lovely with a view to... More

From our initial email contact Berkeley House was very accommodating of our needs and that was reflected in our experience when we stayed there last week. We would happily recommend this small hotel/B&B to anyone. Comfy bed, simple, elegant decor, good shower, proper poached eggs- that's enough for us.

Thank you so much, Kit, for your glowing review. I'm very pleased you enjoyed your stay ... and that the eggs didn't let me down! I hope you have a wonderful summer in "little Manhatten". I must take an opportunity to go and visit the area again before it changes even more! All the best, Amanda and Adam More

We stayed at Berkley House for two nights around attending a wedding. The house is in a wonderful location right in the centre of Lewes. We loved exploring and our hosts recommended and booked a lovely little restaurant for dinner on our first night. Our room was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Perfect set up for my favourite... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Berkeley house and felt very much at home. Amanda went out of her way to make our stay memorable! Dealing with my husband's Celiac Disease was not a problem. We even found 4 pieces of gluten free cakes and brownies waiting for us one day. I lost my cane the day I... More

Hi Gloria. Thank you for your lovely review and I'm delighted you had a comfortable time here. We really enjoyed having you to stay with us too. I'm only sorry the bedroom in the apartment wasn't quite big enough for the kingsize/superking bed you are used to. I wish I could have done something about that but our Georgian townhouse... More

A 3 night stay in the downstairs apartment over the Easter weekend. The kitchen and the bathroom are small but superbly equipped with everything needed for a short stay. Bedroom and lounge area felt like home from home. Having your own entrance door is a bonus, the downside being it is a fire exit (not used during our stay I... More

Thank you, Graham, for your wonderful review. I'm so pleased you had a good stay at Berkeley House and that Simon looked after you so well whilst we were away on holiday. He's an excellent manager and with such a first class review to his credit, I think we'll have to ask him to do this again! That said, we... More

I stayed at Berkeley House a year ago and should have written a review then. I have however recommended it to my friends since and unfortunately could not get in last summer! I booked too late!

Stayed overnight in the apartment at Berkeley House. Amanda was so accommodating and helpful, providing us with plenty of information on where to go and what to do in Lewes. The apartment was perfect and the pictures don't do it justice. If you are Visiting Lewes then Berkeley House is a must.

We spent 3 nights in the apartment between Christmas and new year and had a great time. Amanda was so helpful before we arrived making recommendations about restaurants and even trying to book something for our first evening. It was so nice to have a lounge and kitchen so we could read a book or watch TV or make a... More

We visited Berkeley House on the evening the roads were closed for late night Christmas shopping so this hotel was in the perfect position. Our car was safely parked off the road and we could just walk out to join the party. The hotel is beautifully presented and we were provided with everything we needed. Breakfast was served in a...

I visited Berkeley House last October for business and had a very good night. I loved the room, the decoration, and the excellent details: good coffee and tea, biscuits. A nice bathroom with good shower and nice toiletries. The hotel was right in the middle of the town, but it was quiet, and the bed was excellent. Morning breakfast was... More
