Our extended family attended for a wedding blessing. Beautiful location which was challenging to find without, map compass and 4x4. Happily, we travelled by day as after dark, the approach road would prove to be a death trap. Upon arrival, we begged a pot of tea. The bar did not open until much later, probably a good idea, given that... More

We stayed here in September as we were going to a wedding nearby. We had booked a Taxi and beforehand had asked them to change the time. When we arrived I asked if this had been done and was told that the Taxi company were busy and we were lucky to get one at all, not exactly a warm welcome.... More

This is a delightful and quirky hotel. It has a splendid, quiet and lovely location, but it has seen better days. The new managers, Rosie and Amy are honest and forthright, bravely making their way forward. We could not fault their friendly and efficient service. We were part of a walking group that descended for a weekend, and dinner in... More

I returned to The Southdowns for another of my fundraising Murder Mystery events (27 October 2012) and I have nothing but praise for hotel’s Chef and Staff and of course for Claire (Manager) who helped me organise this event, every step of the way. Yes, the hotel is in need of some real TLC and it needs it NOW. I... More

The hotel has seen better days and could do with a make-over. Our room was clean and comfortable but there were several light bulbs missing and a couple of mysterious stains on the furniture. The continental breakfast was adequate and the staff were cheerful and friendly. Recommend the Elsted Inn nearby rather than the Three Horseshoes a little further on... More

This hotel is a little tired and stuck in the past so if you prefer a ' all rooms the same' type place this isn't for you. The staff were very nice and the grounds were lovely. It is a good location and there is a super pub down the road.

The hotel was recommended to my partner and I purely because the location was close to a house where we were having dinner. Our room was clean and not lacking any convenience. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was decent. However, the place Is totally time warped and so in need of some TLC. If you... More
