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

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
