Rooms were clean and had everything we needed.I would recommend the hotel to anyone. Nicky and Phillip will go out of their way to... More

In my opinion, the couple running this hotel are not cut out for the hotel business, as everyone felt unwelcome. This hotel has the potential to be good so it's a shame that it isn't. The hotel is over-priced and under-cared for; it's old fashioned but not in a good way. There are unfriendly signs on the external doors like,... More

After we were let down on accommodation elsewhere late in the evening we stumbled across The Olde Forge en route to the nearby Travelodge. We were so glad we did. We were warmly welcomed by Philip to our clean and comfortable room. Breakfast the next morning was amazing - one of the best English breakfasts I've had. Regrettably we didn't... More

Celebrating a birthday at The Olde Forge was an absolute delight. Philip and Nicky were attentive and friendly, and to top it off the food was superb. No exaggeration- every plate on our table was clear at the end of the meal! Easily the best food in Hailsham and my husband and I will definitely be going back for dinner... More

We have just had a very enjoyable stay at this lovely hotel. Nicky and Phil are perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are one of the best we have ever had and a very enjoyable start to the day! Our room was not the largest we have stayed in, but it was nicely decorated and very... More

I had stayed in a larger hotel before, but found the Olde Forge a lot more comfortable, due in large part to the efforts of Nicky and Philip, who are always friendly and welcoming. The food was also very good, and all freshly prepared to order. I would definitely recommend this place.

Working away from home for more than a year, I've searched hard for a hotel that fits the bill for me. I've tried high end hotels with 4 stars and budget hotels but have struggled to find one that offers me what I need. In simple terms, I look for a hotel where the rooms are clean and airy, the...

We recently enjoyed a two night stay at the Olde Forge to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Nicky and Phillip made us feel very welcome. As well as the excellent food the ambience was great. A nice touch was the canapés with our pre dinner drinks. A comprehensive menu covered all tastes. We would recommend this winning combination. Hotel is well... More
