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

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...

Stayed as part of family trip to visit friends in Sussex in September 2014 Having read all the reviews beforehand on Tripadvisor I feared for the worst! Location: Good for us- as it was a one night stopover en route to Eastbourne. Unable to comment much more as we arrived about 2200pm at night due to delays so the surrounding... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for one night as we had tickets for the pavilion. 5 minute walk to pavilion and also to great Italian restaurant. That was about the only good thing! On arrival I asked for a WKD to be told they didn't have any until Tuesday. I said I'd have a Smirnoff ice but they didn't... More

We found the staff to be friendly and the hotel itself was nice. Some areas could do with a deep clean, or a spruce up. Otherwise perfectly pleasant. Good sized room, lovely breakfast. For the money we paid it was very good.
