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!

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 still can't get over your daughter's fantastic command of the English language - and as a 2yr old! What a star! All the best, Amanda and Adam More

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. And a fab bathroom - great water pressure, lights and products! Breakfast was a... More

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

I had decided to stay overnight as a last resort thinking I didn't want to drive back from Glyndebourne. I could - I didn't. Berkley House is elegant on the outside and homely on the inside. We were offered the last remaining possibility of sleeping two people in two beds. This was a double benefit to me because it was... More

George, thank you for your great review and, phew, I'm glad we passed your stringent cleanliness tests! Better than that, I'm very pleased you felt comfortable and welcomed. That is, after all, our aim. It was a delight to have you both to stay and we'll look forward to a return visit sometime when you can perhaps try one of... More

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

Mark, thank you so much for your wonderful review. We're delighted you enjoyed your brief stay in Lewes and, of course, enjoyed your visit to Glyndebourne! We look forward to a return visit when you can enjoy some of the other things Lewes has to offer! Our thanks once again, Amanda and Adam 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

Hi Nikki! Great to hear from you and thanks for your lovely review. I'm glad you felt welcome and comfortable here - getting that sort of feedback is what makes running a B&B so pleasurable.
