Sixteen of us stopped here for lunch while on a walk through the lovely Sussex countryside. The welcome was friendly and the barman dealt with our drinks order speedily and professionally. Our food order put a bit of a strain on the kitchen, so there was a wait for food, but not too long. And it was well worth waiting... More

Double room with usual amenities, however, ceiling above bed badly stained & on using shower on evening of arrival were nearly scalded using shower! On morning of departure no hot water at all either in shower room or hand basin, no staff... More

This stay was kindly donated by the owners for a charity fund raiser. They couldn't of been more welcoming, friendly and generous. The food was fresh and delicious. The wine was very tasty! The room was very comfortable and the four poster bed was heavenly!! Highly recommend the lovely Ardingly Inn.

The staff were lovely and helpful. The room we had was small and the bathroom tiny. It was very clean and there's a... More

A few rooms located above the (busy) local pub. Although it seems work is in progress to update the place, it has seen better days. In our room the bathroom was renovated (but hot water was not really hot) but the bedroom seemed poorly maintained: cellotape on the tv, traces of leaks on the ceiling and parts coming of the...

I am somewhat perplexed by your comment, some 4 MONTHS later. Why, when asked at the time did you not say anything. These are trashy comments that have no relevance. The 'sellotape' on the TV was the protective cellophane because it was a new TV. Apologies for the 'stain' on the ceiling, we are waiting for a new roof. The... More

4 nights booked in this pleasant Inn. It is convenient for the Bluebell Railway, but also for daytrips to central London (from Balcombe stn. on the main line to Brighton). I was given room nr.6 which was stated to be a room that still needed a refurbishment (wallpaper etc.), the other rooms apparently already having been treated that way.. Room... More

My husband and I stayed here and I have to say that the hosts Steve and Karen (who have only been there for a year), couldn't have made us more welcome. They said they had been refurbishing the hotel and it looked really lovely and cosy. The bedroom was spotless and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and... More

I came to stay here as an overnight stay before going up to London, and I had a really nice stay here. It was pouring rain when I arrived and instantly as I came in somebody came to greet me. He told me that my room was ready and that I could have a shower before I came down to... More

We are somewhat bemused by your account of your stay, so I will respond to your comments, which I usually don't do, but yours made me laugh. Firstly, you talk about a refurbishment, you allowed your children to enter a room which is being redecorated. With regards to the shower, new boilers were installed last month so I checked and...
