A nice November weekend away to Lewes with Mrs Harris! This seemed like the place to stay by all accounts: fine reviews wherever we looked and a great website. We lumped for the apartment option at £130/nt as we like the flexibility of our own space/place, especially kitchen facilities (see, for example, Roomzzz in Manchester, which we also dig). We...

Hi Peter. Thanks so much for your detailed and comprehensive review of "Life in the Apartment" for a weekend! I'm glad that on the whole you enjoyed your stay and would come again - we'd very much like that! I'm sorry about the footsteps in the mornings, but even my wearing rubber-soled shoes when I'm doing breakfast doesn't quite offset... More

Thank you for your 5 star review - it is very much appreciated! We do like to ensure that people are as comfortable as possible when they stay and enjoy their surroundings, as you both did. I'm glad you mentioned the marmalade. I made 50lbs of it last winter and it's nearly all gone, so time to seek out more... More

We had the basement apartment which had a separate lounge and a small kitchen. I'm glad we did as it was spacious and better more modern than the description. This in my view would be ideal for a weeks stay. There is narrow stairs to this apartment which may be difficult for those with limited mobility. Breakfast was excellent and... More

Thank you so much for your kind review of your stay at Berkeley House. You've also reminded me to update the pictures I have on the website as they don't feature the new kingsize bed, curtains and cushions! Our recent update has given the Apartment a more contemporary feel, which I'm glad you liked. Thanks again for reviewing us so... More

On arrival, I was met by Amanda, the Hostess with the mostest! Nothing was too much trouble. Our room, the Green Room, was beautifully decorated and everything from the lovely crisp bedding, comfortable bed, kettle with tea, coffee & cookies, to the 5* cooked breakfast, made our stay in Lewes very memorable. Fast wifi, parking permits and within a stone's... More

Stayed in the Green room for one night on 26th October. There is a small private shower room/toilet a couple of steps away across the landing. All very clean and bright. The bedroom is classy and tastefully furnished. Wifi is fast (I clocked it at 20mbps) and free. Amanda cooked breakfast whilst chatting in the large kitchen/breakfast room. All in... More

Great location in the heart of Lewes just a short walk from the train station. On street parking available. Greeted by the owner Amanda at the door who was always so welcoming, friendly and helpful.

Every little detail was perfect, from lovely bed and linen, to little treats, fruit, biscuits tea, coffee and chocolate. All pristine and wonderful too. Breakfast was divine, smoked salmon and poached egg on toast, plus yogurt and granola pots and more than we could manage. You must go there!

This is essentially a private house in a quiet side street close to the centre of the historic Sussex town of Lewes. There are steps up to the front door, and the house is one of the very many tall and thin English properties on a number of levels, without a lift, although help with baggage us readily to hand....
