Warm welcome upon arrival, friendly attentive service without being intrusive. Stunning views from the lantern room, especially at sunrise / sunset. Our room had a view of the rolling South Downs. Delicious breakfast. Impressed is an understatement. Thank you for such a wonderful stay, words cannot do it justice, must be seen! 5 stars are not enough, I wish I... More

This place is hard to define. You drive up to the romantic lighthouse on the approach and then face quite a utilitarian building at the back where the bedrooms are. Dont be fooled though - this place is a gem. Made more so by Ian, the best hotel manager you could wish for. Lovely welcome, great breakfast and wonderful ambience.... More

We had the best time staying for one night at Belle Tout to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary... only thing is we feel we might have peaked too soon as we have no idea how we could ever top this amazing experience. We have decided we'll have to double up and stay two nights for our 20th! The service was... More

Our first visit last March was a birthday treat for me. We loved it so much, we returned in September for my partner's birthday. Belle Tout is very, very special. The rooms are tastefully decorated, all in a different style and have fantastic coastal or Downs views. Ian and Paul are wonderful hosts and their breakfasts are 'to die for'!... More

I went with a friend in the week before Christmas and we both loved it! It felt very special to stay in a lighthouse and Ian is a wonderful host. The 360 degree views from the top floor are amazing. The lounge area is warm & cosy and there are drinks at 5pm. The breakfasts are delicious and set you... More

We spent 2 nights staying in the 'beach hut' room of the lighthouse. This room boasts views of the sea and the open rolling country side of East Sussex. We were made to feel very welcome by Paul on arrival. Drinks were served and took advantage of the amazing views from the lantern room at the top of the tower.... More

Stayed in the original keepers loft. Greated by Ian, made to feel at home, once in a lifetime place to say "amazing"!!? Best place I've stayed in the UK by far! Eat at a thi restaurant 🍴 took about a 45 minute walk into the village but it was worth the views.
