Booked this hotel online for 2 nights in August to attend my brothers wedding. On arrival I was asked to check and sign the booking. The booking was for 2 adults. The online booking, which I was able to provide, was for 2 adults and 1 child. The hotel was full and we were out in a room and told... More

We have previously stayed at The Shelleys, many times, and at The Crown and at The White Hart. Pelham House prices are on a par with The Shelleys. However Pelham House was a great disappointment. Having thought that I had booked into a great boutique hotel I found that the whole operation was rather tired and old and very much... More

Stayed for three nights. Typical old style country hotel but in the middle of town. So beware parking is severely limited at the hotel and can be difficult in town. £6.10 per day at station, £4 for 2 hours on street. Very nice panelled rooms, wooden floor and spiral staircase but no lift. Cosy bar, pleasant panelled dining room and... More

What a gem of a hotel in the most charming town of Lewes. My elderly mother and I came for an overnight stay for a family wedding. Our twin room was beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and spotless and over looked the gorgeous gardens. The breakfast was to die for. I didn't think to ask beforehand, but there is no lift.... More

Beautiful hotel set in heart of Lewes but with such stunning gardens and wonderufl interiors... Room 4 is amazing - the bathroom is to die for ... Staff are very welcoming and excellent service all round ..

I can't say anything bad about this place, we came here for a wedding, the reception was lovely when we got here, was able to check in slightly early, the day ran very smoothly, hotel was clean, food was very enjoyable. We would definitely stay here again.

Pelham house is a beautiful house and is set in lovely gardens! Having a small child wasn't a problem we were left to feed him first and then order and high chair was provided. We ordered some drinks and ordered the cream TEA the drinks came out fine and the scones came out which were on the small side but... More

Pelham House is well situated in Lewes but it has limited parking ( which you have to pay extra for). We were staying there for one night after a wedding in a nearby country hotel. The staff were courteous and pleasant and a lunchtime coffee in the garden at the back was nicely served. The room was pokey - not... More

What a pretty hotel in the centre of Lewes. Stayed in an attic room, sadly no help with the bags to the 2nd floor. Fire alarm around midnight- evacuate the building. Back to bed after the night porter located the off button. In bed and again the alarm went off- quickly muted. Lovely apology letter under the door in the... More

The town of Lewes is very nice but after initial checking in the hotel was generally disappointing for our average room rate of £190 plus parking, on their own forecourt. The room was large and spacious but quite dreary and lacking in detail. The only drawer was floor level under a very decrepit wardrobe. No others in the room at... More
