Stayed here for a wedding and the wedding party had booked the whole place. The food and service were amazing. We booked late and the only room left was one at the front, which was very noisy with traffic on a very busy road, but others in our party with rooms at the back said they weren't affected. So is...

Stayed here for a wedding at nearby Conquerors. This had everything we needed, very comfy, delicious food. Bedroom was a tight fit, due to the age and design of the building, but cosy and the actual bed was a good size.

Philip, the owner of the hotel gave me a lift to the castle where I should go for a conference because I missed the bus. So he become "my hero" because it was really far and not easy to walk through narrow roads. In general, my stay was pleasant. The only negative aspect is the trafific noise if your room... More

I stayed at the Olde Forge Hotel for three nights, with most of my time spent attending a conference nearby. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, the beds comfortable, and the complementary drinks/biscuits very nice indeed. I loved the breakfast - home-made cereal, Greek yoghurt, freshly made fruit salad with mangoes, bananas, and strawberries, cranberry and orange juice (I did not... More

Very good food, friendly and hospitable, comfortable and clean room, no problem parking, pet friendly. It is on the main road but this wasn't a problem, if anything it makes it easier to connect to places ... a very pleasant stay

We are a family of 4 from Sydney and stayed for 2 nights mid-week to visit relatives in Hailsham as well as to view some of the attractions in East Sussex. The Olde Forge Hotel is charming and has a very friendly atmosphere. The rooms are nicely furnished and very quiet so we always slept well. We enjoyed the dinner... More

A charming couple run this hotel restaurant. We were warmly welcomed and introduced to nibbles and an apetif in the bar where we chose from a select menu.Soon the table was ready and the dishes presented. The quality was excellent throughout. My wife was delighted as it was her birthday. They made a bit of fuss of her which was... More

I was very impressed with the high standard of the accommodation, very clean room and up to date facilities. The proprietors were very welcoming, the breakfast was superb, lots of choice and well presented, freshly cooked hot food to order.

It looks cute from the outside but is average inside. Nothing special, clean, breakfast too early at the weekend - over by 9.30 on a Sunday. Could hear other guests talking from about 6am which disrupted sleep. It feels like an old fashioned b&b/guest house and is overpriced.

The hotel is good and offers everything you need. Phil and Nicky are warm, efficient and good fun. By far the highlight of staying here is the quality of the food. Everything on your plate is perfect and largely locally sourced. The house red is excellent so make sure you order a bottle with your meal. You won't be disappointed.... More
