Spontaneous visit on a Sunday afternoon. I was driving around East Sussex with my elderly mum and my wife, looking for somewhere to have a cream tea. Saw the sign to Powdermills Hotel and followed the road to this beautiful country hotel. It was busy but the staff were charming and helpful. They found a comfortable place for my disabled... More

We arrived on Friday after a 3.5 hour drive. The receptionist was pleasant. We get to our room and go out onto the balcony. Half parking lot and have pond....fine. But the balcony tiles have been pulled up and not replaced. We are walking on some black tarr with glue marks. The lighting on the balcony is not working so... More

Dear 347England, Thank you for your comments, which we were already aware of as you had spoken to our Receptionist on check out. When you declined to discuss any of the issues with myself and made it clear that you did not want to any sort of refund or compensation. The balcony tiles have been removed and what is on... More

First impressions were that it was delightfully situated with super garden for ourselves and the dog to have a morning walk. We had a ground floor room overlooking the car park, it was rather gloomy and cool but adequately furnished, shame not much choice TV channels. On the Friday night we were not able to dine in the bar area,only... More

The restaurant here is one I've visited for many 'special occasion' family lunches over the years. This year for a special, special occasion we had an overnight stay and evening meal. The food as always was excellent in quality and taste with great service, The beef I had was tender and the deconstructed creme brulee was great. In the past... More

We have stayed at this hotel a few times over the last 15 years and each visit has been excellent. The food and service is first class, the rooms are always clean and comfortable. The grounds are lovely to walk around if it's not raining. The outdoor swimming pool could do with being heated, but this is the only criticism.... More

We stayed at the Powdermills as part of a Travelzoo offer for our Pearl wedding anniversary. We were upgraded to room 40 which is at the back of the hotel and there are patio doors leading onto wooden decking and then grass.The view is over a huge lake. I must be honest and say we asked to be moved, as... More

Four of us arrived for lunch at this hotel set in extensive grounds in the Sussex countryside close to Battle. Pre lunch drinks were in one of the lounges with comfy sofas. It was a beautiful day so the French doors were open and we had views over their lovely grounds. The restaurant is beautifully appointed. We were brought a... More

Thank you for another fantastic stay this weekend. Even though there was a wedding going on and a classic car convention nothing affected our stay. Our little bichon dog loves it there too so does our 10 year old daughter. The food is always amazing, every detail to perfection. All the staff are so friendly. Can't wait to go back... More

We enjoyed our stay. We had been travelling a lot for the previous 10 days and the wonderfully tranquil location of the hotel was just what we needed before we headed back to France. There are lovely walks and two lakes. The hotel is a curious mix of traditional and modern, so there's a choice of room style to meet... More

Although the vast majority of the reviews for this beautiful country house hotel are excellent or at least very good, I also read a few which were classified as "terrible" so we were a little apprehensive at what we might find. We need not have worried. Certainly from our experience we had to wonder whether the poor reviews were of... More
