The owners were super friendly and greeted my friends and I warmly. Nice, historic building with updated areas. The room I occupied was quite comfortable and the dinner was fabulous. I really enjoyed my stay.

This is a pleasant, quaint hotel with charming delightful hosts who know how to make you feel welcome. As has been said before by the the management (Nikki and Philip) the rooms are not large but are comfortable and warm. There are tea and coffee facilities in the room. The on-suite bathroom like the room is "cosy" but big enough.... More

A last minute booking for a weekend break. From the minute we arrived, we were made to feel welcome and the owners couldn't do enough for us. We didn't pre-order dinner (my error), but they were more than willing to rustle up a delicious 3-course veggie meal for both of us with no complaints at all. The room was clean,... More

As you pass this small hotel from the roadside, it appears to be a little unassuming. It is however well worth a stay. The owners a very pleasant and the rooms, although on the small side, are well prepared and spotlessly clean. The best asset is the food. We enjoyed a wonderful evening meal which was, in our opinion, reasonably... More

We have recently celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary at the Old Forge with mixed ages of our family. It was a perfect venue for us, plus the attention to detail; the service and the wonderful food that was provided for this occasion was excellent. Nicky and Philip could not have been more welcoming and helpful for this once in a... More

Being a rather travel weary business visitor, it was a real treat to come across this small, traditional, family-run establishment. If you are looking for trendy and noisy with 24 hour bar service don't come here but if you want to chill out and leave your stress behind it is just the ticket. Nicky and Philip are delightful hosts. As... More

What can we say? Yet again the Olde Forge and hosts Nicky and Philip surpassed our expectations. Stayed over Valentine's weekend, comfy bedroom and superb food. Friendly hosts and just perfect. Thank you.

I very rarely write on trip advisor but to be honest I feel I must say something about our recent stay here at this hotel. We only stayed for one night so admittedly not a long time but that was long enough for me to decide that this place is a little gem! Husband and wife team were very lovely..... More

We stayed late October, three nights BB&D basis and found the Old Forge a small,charming and comfortable hotel. Excellent base for exploring Sussex. Our room was very clean and comfortable, had everything we needed for a good stay. A small cosy bar for pre-dinner drinks and small beamed restaurant which had a lovely atmosphere. From an excellent dinner menu, the... More
