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

My wife and I have been coming here ever since Phil and Nicky took over and we love everything about the experience. The hotel has a great feeling of home. The rooms are cosy and comfortable. The hosts (feel more like friends) make the visit relaxed and friendly. The restaurant is superb, we have tried the complete menu and nothing... More

I booked accommodation here intending to bring my dog, having found the place while searching for dog-friendly places to stay in area. As it turned out she stayed behind with a house sitter, and having experienced a stay here I wouldn't recommend it as dog-friendly compared to most other places I've stayed. They charge extra according to the size of... More

A wonderful very friendly hotel with truly personal service and a marvellous restaurant where nothing is too much trouble whether it be at breakfast or dinner. Having discovered my allergy to bananas Philip made me special banana-free fruit salad at breakfast without my asking. The location was convenient and we hope and intend to return. Highly recommended.

Found The Olde Forge looking for a base to explore Rye, Battle and the South East Coast, and what a find! The hospitality and food set this place apart. We had a 3 month old baby with us, and our hosts went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and to make sure we could... More

We got married at Blackstock farm and I stayed here the night before with one of my bridesmaids and in the morning of the wedding myself and 6 bridesmaids got ready and made a lot of noise and mess but the old forge were so lovely and made us feel so welcome! They served us our breakfast earlier as we... More

16 yrs of experience has polished mine host's welcome to perfection - thoughtful touches included the trays of extra teabags, milk & biscuits on the landings. Canapes in the bar were included with the dinner (excellent wine list for a smaller hotel) & the food - both dinner & breakfast - won our award from a few years of short... More

We ended up here by chance, and so glad that we did! Tithe proprietors, Nicky and Phil are extremely welcoming and friendly and cannot do enough for you. The bed and pillows were really comfy and the breakfast, with many home made items (marmalade, muesli, fruit salads etc) was brilliant. Our room was compact, but this didn't matter as we... More

My work has taken me from my comfy, welcoming home in Lincolnshire for the past 2 years. I'd tried numerous hotels in the East Sussex area and was treated to a mixture of overpriced and under performing hotels for the first year or so before stumbling upon this lovely hotel. Having spent 4 nights a week here since October 2013,... More
