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

We recently stayed at the Powdermills, this was the second trip,the first was just over a year ago and was very nice. This time, however the main three course meal was average, at best. Our room (14) must have very thin stud partition walls as during the night I was kept awake by the person snoring in the next room,I... More

We stayed here recently for a one night "special deal." The location is superb and we had a warm and friendly welcome from the Reception staff. The bedroom was clean & well appointed. The dinner menu was quite extensive & served in a relaxed manner. We were fortunate in having beautiful weather which enabled us to walk around the lovely... More
