I arrived late after 10pm, partly due to the long term A21 road works from the M25 (leave plenty of time for your meeting!), however the staff were very helpful and offered to make fresh sandwiches as the kitchen had already closed for hot food. Local insight - I did venture out and tried to find somewhere for hot food... More

We visited this hotel/pub for a few casual drinks before moving on to a restaurant. We found it extremely noisy and wasn't aware that it holds live bands which did put a dampener on things (unless you enjoy that) but was a very friendly service.

The ensuite rooms are comfortable. The breakfasts are excellent. The owners and family are friendly and helpful. There are not many hotels in Bexhill for an overnight stay. Most are bed and breakfasts on or near the front. The Sussex Hotel is an old style inn with a big open bar a short walk from the station and centre of... More

We recently stayed two nights B&B at the Sussex, whilst we were visiting family in the area. Being a pub and restaurant we did not know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. The pub/restaurant has traditional decor, which although showing signs of needing some TLC is kept very clean. The bedrooms, again needing some TLC have all the required... More

We were staying one night in Bexhill, and were offered a double room in the Sussex Hotel for £54 including breakfast. I'm used to paying about £60 for a Premier Inn excluding breakfast, so this seemed a very reasonable price. The room was surprisingly large, high ceilinged, and warm. It was also clean, although showing some signs of wear, on... More

My friend and I had a fabulous time staying here. We were very warmly welcomed, bags carried to our room, the room was clean, fresh and everything worked perfectly, with that special extra touch of folded towels on the bed. The new management team are presently working hard to improve the lack of care the previous team left and they... More

New manager had just taken over when we stayed, have to say our room was clean and the bed comfy. Staff friendly and helpful, and breakfast was fine in the morning. Based on paying £55 for two B & B , no complaints. Could do with a bit of an update, but that's a taste issue. Was better than average,... More

Everything was clean and nice. There is still much to be done, I look forward to coming and seeing further improvements in the... More

This hotel in the past has been a bit dire. Now it is on the up and changes are going to take place. It is now being run by Kathy and Bill who are experienced landlords, having changed the fortunes of a number of pubs and small hotels previously. This one is going to be no easy task, but having...
