We chose this hotel based on previous reviews but were very disappointed. Our room was in The Mews annexe which we would liken to a 'Premier Inn' room but twice the price! The room was comfortable enough but very noisy late into the night, due mainly to the car park being immediately in front. Beware!! There was no temperature limiter... More

I could not fault the friendly and efficient service throughout. Breakfast was excellent and much was locally sourced. The downside was a room too small for the generous super kingsize bed which meant no room for a bedside table. The ensuite was clean and functional but quite small too and only offered a shower and not a bath. B and... More

We did not stay here but went for lunch with a friend who had not been to Pelham House before, hoping to eat our lunch in the lovely garden, but alas it was too windy. We thought that the bar had a lovely relaxing atmosphere, and so decided to eat inside. We had good service at first, and our very... More

The food was excellent but attention to detail was lacking. We had the 3 course Sunday lunch for £29.99 and agreed it was very good value; the paté starter was tasty & a generous portion, the rib of beef was excellent quality with good sides and the dessert too was tasty. Though the staff were nice, they were very difficult... More

We had an efficient and warm welcome. The staff were helpful throughout our stay. The breakfast was very good with a wide variety of buffet and cooked food. The hotel has great character but our room and some of the communal areas are in need of decoration and deep cleaning. E.g. The basin in our room and windows had black... More

This was our third stay at Pelham House and a fairly late booking for a night away in Lewes before moving on to a couple of nights in Brighton. The hotel is in a 16th Century house that really is a beautiful building, situated just off of the High Street. The staff on reception were friendly and efficient. Parking is... More

Nice room, quiet and a lovely comfy bed. Breakfast was lovely and the staff attentive. The table next to us at breakfast had 2 very obnoxious guests, and the waitress dealt with them in a far more professional and courteous way than I could have!

We arrived for a 2 night stay @ this hotel, we were greeted by the friendly receptionist who checked us in very swiftly. The room was an very large room. The shower room was quiet small for the size of the bedroom. It is a very dated room & could do with a pick me up, I felt this of... More

Stayed at the Pelham House Hotel as I was seeing friends in Lewes. As the hotel is an old Georgian building the place is a bit like a rabbit Warren. The room that I had was on the second floor. I thought that it felt a bit weird that the toilet and shower room were two different rooms. The room... More
