The rooms aren't spectacular but then you wouldn't expect it at this price point. They are quite big and noise wasn't a problem after 11pm despite it being a pub. Very powerful showers which is always important. The breakfast was great with a massive full English of decent quality, didn't really need much lunch! Staff were very helpful and friendly.... More

We stayed Two nights at The Dorset last Friday and Saturday while in Lewes for a Wedding party and found the staff very welcoming and friendly. Our bedroom was large, with a comfortable bed, although it was only a standard size Double! There was lots of wardrobe space and heaps of drawers and even the bedside tables were a great... More

We had a two night stay at The Dorset. The room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. We ate in the pub on Sunday night, a delicious meal with and the Harveys ale tasting board is highly recommended! We received 10% reduction in our food bill as we stayed on a Sunday night, which made it excellent value. Staff were... More

An excellent 2 nights at the Dorset. The room was large, clean & comfortable, with very friendly, helpful staff. The food is very good and the rooms, suprisingly quiet considering this is a pub. Fantastic value for money, highly recommended.

We have loved the stay in the Dorset Inn, good room, good service, very good meals! I just found this place on the internet, and booked it by email. I received a friendly and quick answer. The menu made me decide to choose this place, and that was not a disappointment. The local beer from the brewery nearby was excellent... More

We had a one night stay and were impressed by the staff friendliness, the lovely evening meal, the excellent breakfast and the clean comfortable room. We'd definitely stay there again and would recommend it to friends.

A well run, relaxed place. Food excellent. I had samphire, grey mullet, asparagus and home made beans for breakfast, all delicious. Most important, though my room was not elegant, it was very comfortable, and I was asleep every night by 10.0, with not a sound but the odd door closing. This in spite of the fact that the weather was... More

Stayed here for one night, there is no parking at the hotel but a public car park extremely close by. The signage said beautiful rooms, I wouldnt say room 3 was beautiful but it was large and reasonably clean. A few cobwebs but its an old place. The room had modern furniture, double bed and also a single. The facilities... More

We stopped off here for lunch on the way from Chester to Eastbourne. The food and service was very good - we had sandwiches which were well prepared and nicely presented. We sat outside at the front which was very pleasant in the sunshine. Harveys ale was available on handpumps which helped too! Parking could be a problem - we... More
