Our room (no 16) was small, but comfortable, with beautiful views of the Downs. Access to this attic room is quite awkward via steep stairs. When we returned after dinner, our tea bags had been replenished, there were chocolates on the pillows, and Classic FM was playing softly - what a nice touch. The gardens are delightful, and we were... More

This charming hotel is nicely located just down a side road off the main high street. Check in was smooth and friendly, however there was no explanation of directions, what facilities were in the hotel, and we were not offered any help with our baggage either which was disappointing. The room itself was pleasant and of a good size, however... More

Stayed here for two nights for a wedding. Very helpful staff with good service nicely run hotel that makes a refreshing change from the big chains. Lovely gardens and rooms are good value for the price. Make sure you reserve parking if travelling by car - parking is a nightmare in Lewes.

I was expecting a fantastic hotel, great room, great service. It's an OK hotel (it's location is it's best feature), the staff are OK but the room was very small and needed a good clean. The double bed took up most of the room, the bathroom was in the eaves so you couldn't stand to shower, the room and bathroom... More

Beautiful old building and staff were very attentive. Room was clean (if a little pricey). Breakfast was nicely cooked and toast/bread selection was very nice! Nice to see bubble and squeak on the menu for a change. Attended as a wedding guest and the service was superb. Food was amazing. All served on hot plates and beautifully cooked and tasty.... More

If you like to escape from noisy coffee machines and screaming children but still enjoy a great coffee, the Pelham is your destination. Sitting in the autumn sunshine overlooking the view of the downs this garden is a quiet haven for a romantic rendevous or coffee with friends.

A compact hotel which is quite pretty. Had a spacious room that was clean and had good desk. Fan in room proved useful for particularly warm night. Tight parking. Nice breakfast - option to eat outside overlooking nice garden. Good small meeting facilities. Walking distance to superb Lewes rail station. No lift.

We booked for 2 nights. Room No 8 surely could not be a ' Superior Double ' as it was very cramped with no room on one side of the king sized bed, one chair,no proper shelves for clothes, no curtains, and a totally inadequate, microscopic shower room without a shelf. It must really be a single bedroom. One bedside... More

It was a pleasure to be part of a wedding party last weekend and be treated so well by the staff, Philip was the man on the bar and he looked after the group with great charm, wit and seemed unflappable , despite few staff and many guests. Lovely location and a good time was had by all. As we... More

Hi, we have just got married in August 2014 and had our reception at Pelham House. We had a fabulous day and extended stay. The preparation, organization, food and friendliness of staff, over and above what we were expecting, made our day special. In fact most of our guests were very complimentary regarding the wedding breakfast. Whilst the weather was... More
