We stayed at Pelham House just after Christmas for 2 nights and we weren't disappointed. We were made very welcome when we arrived at Reception, we had booked a car park space as the parking is limited, so you have to leave your keys with reception in case the car has to be moved. Our room was lovely, very clean... More

What Fabulous place to stay. They have the traditional oldie world Hotel along with lovely modern art throughout the rooms and hallways that you can buy or just admire. The rooms have plenty of space and everything you need for a very comfortable stay, plumbing cranks a wee bit, but got to remember how old this lovely place is, very... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night just before Christmas as we were attending a work 'do' at a local pub. Lewes is lovely and I was pleased to have got a deal online for a room at Pelham House. What a disappointment. The hotel looks amazing online, as it does when you walk in, but our room... More

Long overdue review of this lovely hotel in Lewes. Superb rooms, wonderful restaurant and very friendly staff. Our room was luxurious and quiet, with a great view of the garden. The garden itself was perfectly manicured and the artwork beautiful. Only reason for not giving a 5-star rating is that it is a bit pricey if not booking through an... More

We stayed here several nights in late December 2013. A very warm welcome and friendly service, great room, delicious breakfast.... A great base in this historic town and good for local walks. We enjoyed the special lunch.

Pelham House is so stunning that your expectations are very high before you arrive. I had afternoon tea with my granddaughter who was treating me for my birthday. Unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations. We had a waiter who was difficult to understand and didn't really know what he was doing. At no time did anyone come near or... More

Pelham house is a lovely spot for some food and they do a nice afternoon tea. The service is a bit hit and miss, they have some perfectly lovely, but unfortunately seemingly inexperienced staff. There never seems to be anyone in charge of the staff on the shop floor and they need that guidence when they are so young. We... More
