First impression wasn't good at all. Totally covered in scaffolding, the guest entrance was locked, when we managed to actually get in, there was a huge noisy party in progress. The place was decidedly uninviting. Once all the ruckus died down it wasn't nearly as awful as the initial impression. The rooms were Tiny with no amenities but it was... More

We stayed June 2015 our room was clean and nicely decorated and had a comfortable bed. We had a sea view and the town centre was only just down the road. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was a nice traditional English with other options available. Would recommend if staying in Seaford

Stayed one night for a family occasion. This is a pub with rooms above, on the main road from Seaford to Newhaven. Our twin bed room was clean and attractively decorated and furnished, plenty of room, double-aspect with seaviews over the local rooftops. Nice clean modern ensuite. Pub appears to have live music occasionally, but no noise problem the night... More

We spent a couple of nights in what is an unassuming pub b & b. That said we were perfectly happy with the room and breakfast at a tariff ( recently raised ) below which you could normally expect for other seaside locations in this area. The sea is only five minutes away with a dedicated ' fitness circuit' running... More

I picked this hotel because it was close to Newhaven and was reasonably priced. It's a pub with rooms, we checked in at the bar in the afternoon. We were shown to our room by Nelly (not sure if that's her name but that's who is on the receipt) who was friendly. The room was huge with a fabulous sea... More

This was a one-night stopover for business purposes, so my needs were few; a friendly welcome, nice clean room, comfy bed, kettle/TV and shower. All were provided by the White Lion. The room was small, but very nice, and perfectly adequate for my stay. Downside for some would be the noise from the bar downstairs, but it was just a... More

We spent a week here whilst having an initial house hunt in the area. The accommodation was great, the atmosphere good and the staff went out of their way to be friendly. The food is good - especially Eileen's breakfasts, but the bar restaurant is so popular in the evenings they could do with a bit more eating space.

The room was brilliant - very nicely decorated, clean (apart from the windows) and a really comfy bed. The staff behind the bar were very friendly and the breakfast was yummy. We had the vegetarian option, which had fried potatoes, which I love! The only bad point was that we left our bags there after we checked out and the... More
