Spent another couple of nights here. This may be classed as 3 stars but to us is 5. Everything is just right, from the moment we enter to when we leave. The rooms are comfortable and I think they may have regrouted the bathrooms and cleaned them up. Lovely cosy lounge area with big leather sofas. Fire going in Autumn/Winter.... More

We chose this hotel because it was on route to elsewhere. It was expensive to begin with but at £95.00 but then we found that breakfast was extra, What a rip off for what you eventually got. Anyway we arrived at approx. 9.00pm on a very wet Saturday night to be told by a unmannered barmaid that food was finished... More

In general the Roebuck has a nice look and feel about it with a nice atmosphere in the dining and lounge area. The staff are polite albeit over-stretched and scurrying about; the food is of good quality. The rooms are very clean and have nice decor but could use some updating. The bathroom was spotless. What is really distressing is... More

The Roebuck Hotel is a very pleasant place to stay in East Sussex with many places of interest to visit near by. The rooms are comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. The menu is varied, with many 'old favourites', and the breakfast is excellent.

We enjoyed a two night stay in this lovely, cosy, and above all FRIENDLY, hotel to attend a family wedding. To put it simply, it could not have been better. The staff were friendly, but not familiar, efficient, but not pushy. Public areas felt like a home from home - comfortable and not overwhelming. Old fashioned country style decor -... More

Had a lovely Sunday lunch with family & friends, the carvery was very nice & fresh with 3 meats to choose from. The staff seemed friendly enough, we arrived before lunch so sat & had a drink on the terrace. Fairly reasonable.

When booking hotels in this area you expect high prices and indifferent service such is the demand for rooms. Most hotels in Lewes and Brighton were full or outlandishly expensive!!! This is certainly not the case with The Roebuck. As soon as I spoke to Nick, the General Manager when booking, I knew this would be a good experience; he... More

I stayed at The Roebuck for two nights for my brother's wedding. Upon checking in we were greeted by the very welcoming and smiley Magenta, who gave us our room keys. When booking, I had been advised that I had the last twin room, but that this would be made into a double for us. Unfortunately the room was set... More

Traditional unpretentious old coaching Inn with panelled rooms and big comfortable leather sofas, extensive lawns and gardens at rear. Our 2 night stay and the layout of the rooms felt as if we were in someone's home. The staff were unobtrusive, but always on hand and extremely efficient, helpful and friendly. The quality of the food was very good considering... More
