I have stayed here three times now. Breakfast is wonderful, such choice. The food is always attractively presented, and hot, including the toast which in other establishments can so often be cold and leathery. The staff are always cheerful, and helpful. The service is excellent. As a single traveller I was very happy to stay here. The hotel is very... More

The restaurant atThe Northern Hotel just off the sea front at Bexhil on sea is a hidden gem. The Hotel is a family run establishment and has retained all the features of traditional service quality remembered by the older generation. The chef produces good quality traditional meals with good portions. Service by the staff members is always courteous. They cater... More

I have stayed here a few times now, usually around Christmas when I travel to Bexhill to visit relatives with my partner and their mum. I have always been impressed and its clear that they are investing in further enhancing the hotel. (Free wifi for example) Room was really good, nice en suite. Breakfast is excellent and the staff are... More

I only know the Northern at second hand, having sent my daughter and her boyfriend of the time there for an overnight stay, and joined them for lunch the following day. On the other hand, it's only a short walk from where I live, and even closer to the seafront (turn right when you leave the premises, and the promenade,... More

We stayed here as a large, extended family group with children of all ages. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. The staff are absolutely lovely. Great breakfasts, all freshly cooked to order. Very close to the beach and De La Warr pavilion.

Last year we submitted a glowing report on this hotel. We have just visited again and enjoyed a delightful holiday in an atmosphere of sheer delight. Everything about the Northern is just right - clean, bright, well equipped, comfortable - and hospitality exceptionally warm. The food is excellent with enough variety to suit most tastes. The Sims family and the... More

Thank you once again for your lovely comments, you are such good ambassadors for our hotel and it's always lovely to see you every year. We love the Seafront too, especially the lovely fountains for the children and spacious design at the back of the De La Warr Pavilion. The De La Warr is a real talking point and while... More

It was a friendly quiet stay. Very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was huge which set us up for the day. Will stay there again. Not cheap but worth it. The room was large almost like our own little apartment.

I needed a hotel for a business trip at the last minute so Googled this hotel without researching. I arrived very late and was shown to my room by very friendly staff. In the morning I had a lovely breakfast with the sun streaming in through windows, served by very nice staff. The hotel has kept it's original charm of... More

Stayed 2 nights in May. Staff friendly and helpful. Room clean and nice if a little old fashioned and quirky. Breakfast superb - it was really nice to have a fully served breakfast unlike so many hotels these days. Location is good, just around corner from the seafront. Shame there was no car park and parking was difficult on the... More
