We enjoyed a wonderful stay here and enjoyed the most amazing views of the Sussex coast and Beachy Head from the lantern at the top of this historic and iconic building. The room though small was immaculate, well equipped and comfortable. The host was very passionate and knowledgeable about the lighthouse and very hospitable. We enjoyed a complimentary drink served... More

We both love the story of this Lighthouse after watching the BBC programme on how it was moved back away from the cliff and never thought we’d ever get to stay here. What can I say that hasn’t been said on previous reviews but I highly recommend a stay here. This place is wonderful and quirky and I feel so... More

A great place to stay, amazing views and a truly unique experience! Ian is the perfect host and, in addition to telling us about the history of the lighthouse, he arranged a 'happy hour' in which all the guests could chat together and enjoy a drink. A short taxi ride took us to the excellent Thai restaurant in the nearby... More

What an experience it was to stay at Belle Tout! We loved every minute of our stay. From our arrival to our departure - we received excellent and friendly service. Our room was compact but it was clean, functional, well decorated and had a fantastic view of the dramatic coastline. We loved the views from the top of the lighthouse... More

Stunning location and wonderful service. Bedrooms and lounge are so well equipped and the views from the lantern room are just amazing. They tell you to ask if there is anything you need but they have already thought of it. The complimentary drinks each evening at 5pm are a really nice idea for all guests to share their experience's. Highly... More

What an amazing visit to Belle Tout! Paul, our host, goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable- nothing is too much trouble, he even left a birthday card for me (as we were there for a birthday treat) and emailed us on our way home to wish us a good onward journey, these little touches make it...
