The location on the canal is perfect. The hallways have nicer antiques than most collectors. Service is just right. There when you need it, otherwise unobtrusive. We had a Harbormaster's room facing the canal and with a small patio. How lovely it was - worth the extra cost.

What a great place for a get away! The hotel location is wonderful - right on the river/canal for a beautiful setting, and an easy walk to all the great shops and restaurants in Lewes.

We had our management meeting here and the staff was fabulous and incredibly friendly. The meeting room was the perfect size for our group (24). The accommodations was lovely and very comfortable. The location was great with shops and restaurants nearby, and a 15 minute walk to the beach. The food was outstanding. Freshly baked scones for breakfast and the... More

My wife and I booked one night at the Inn for a quick get-away, and we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and informative upon checking in, our room was spacious, comfortable, and had a nice balconey overlooking the canal, and breakfast the following morning was a grand spread of fresh fruits, baked goods, meat and cheese, hard-boiled...

The Inn at Canal Square is right on the canal and in the midst of the best shops and restaurants -- it is situated at the best side of the canal. There, you are located where the most independent, foodie-type restaurants, interesting shops, and quaint, strolling-around, small-town feel is. The OTHER side of the canal feels remote from where you... More

We visited on a weekend in January, recommended by friends who were also staying there. We arrived an hour before the registration closed, but no worries, we were greeted pleasantly and check-in was simple. They even let us keep the car in the courtyard because it was cold and rainy. Our room was comfortable and nice, just what we were... More

We have stayed at the Inn several times in the past however this stay we noticed a few things that could be updated to improve the rooms. But first, the positive which is that the hotel is in a great location within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. It's also about a twenty minute walk to the bay beach,... More

Located on the harbour, this quaint hotel offers comfortable, clean lodgings walking distance from downtown Lewes and a number of excellent restaurants. Our room had recently been renovated and was excellent. This was our 5th stay and if anything we found recent improvements had made our stay even more comfortable than on past occasions.
