Awful hotel. Looks so nice from the outside. Ate at the hotel one night. I had lasagne which was like a brick. My husband asked for a starter which was meant to be vegetable soup. It was like vegetable water with a lump of cream cheese and a few bits of soggy bread floating in it which i presume were... More

Am not sure what hotel other reviewers stayed in but this hotel is excellent. The staff are extremely friendly and the food from the restaurant was top quality. The menu was high quality Italian - I chose tagliatelli with venison ragu and calamari. The room I had was big and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was sufficient... More

The hotel reception area is dark and unwelcoming, along with the rest of the ground floor. We asked for extra towels, sugar and milk - our request was ignored, although the person we spoke to promised action. The rooms are small and very dated, the furniture doesn't match and appears to date from the 1960s. The breakfast was poor -... More

We only stayed at the hotel for one night after wedding and even in that very short time we were there it made a significant (negative) an impression on us! For £75 for a double room you expect far more than the Chequers Inn offers. They seem to be economising on everything causing a very poor quality of service. We... More

I know you get what you pay for. But we had to use what could only be described as the cleaners, if they actually had one, store cupboard. A make shift double bed was 2 mattresses stacked on top of each other. The shower and toilet which were shared. We actually knew about. But our room description was trouser press,... More

Good place to stay if you're looking to stay just overnight (we were catching a ferry from Newhaven the next day). We booked a triple room which was really a double with an extra put you up squeezed in and we had to ask for an extra towel and cup and saucer for the third person. However the hotel staff... More

They took 2 lots of payment from us online in error. Only got one confirmation email for the one room that we did book. On arrival we only got one key and nothing was said about the mystery room that we didn't book. We only found out when looking at bank statement re the other room that they took for.... More

The bathroom floor had not been cleaned in months, there was tide marks of dirty limescale on the tiles and hairs in the bath, the bathmat was black.The... More

Absolutely awful, really difficult to say something positive about this hotel. Extremely dated, dirty, poorly lit, minimal basic facilities, no specific parking, very hot rooms, no air con, not even an electric fan, window opened wide open with a twenty foot drop outside and I had to fix the cistern on the toilet so it would flush. Breakfast looked very... More
