We stayed here after a friend's wedding and it was a nice place. Super helpful staff too. I called to explain why we hadn't checked and they were super accommodating. Nice, clean rooms and a comfortable, if a bit soft, bed. Breakfast would've been better if there had been more choice of hot food but for the price you really... More

This is cheap and you absolutely get what you pay for. The rooms are grotty and the bedding grim. The TV and toilet both didn't work. Upon arrival the owner informs you with some satisfaction that his staff are lazy and they don't do refunds. So deal with it. Breakfast is a packet of biscuits, toast and minimal cereal options....

We booked this hotel for one night as it seemed ideally located within the Ashdown Forest Area. On arrival, the front of the building looks quaint and inviting. As soon as we entered the room we noticed that there was no rubbish bin, no milk for tea-making ( although there was an empty cigarrette lighter in a caddy!), no wardrobe... More

The thing that amazes me about the Chequers is that there have been bad reviews on this site for well over five years but nothing has been done about the amateur service, the state of the rooms, the stupid prices or the food/bar stock. We regularly have friends stay in the village and I have to ask them to avoid... More

Upon arriving and checking in the first thought was good value and what had other reviewers complained about, its a 2 star hotel for £65 a night not the Dorchester for £265 a night and to be fair , you get what you pay for, the room was clean , decent bed with fresh linen........so far so good. The bar... More

We visited this place today for a bar lunch - we were told there were no ciabattas and the only other option was a plough mans platter for £8.00. Our party of four all ordered these plates. When they arrived we were all staggered by what was presented. There was one slither of cheddar, one of Stilton, four pieces of... More

booked this hotel due to the varied menu detailed on their website, it showed that there were various steaks, lamb dishes etc which all looked lovely, also the photos of the rooms looked nice, when we arrived the welcome was nice. The bedroom was ok but it had only one side table and no bedside lamps (which were shown in... More

Sadly I feel this hotel has seen 'better days'. Service was slow and a little unfriendly. Very disappointed to ascertain the bar was closing at 10.15 with no real reason or apology when asking to order more drinks from the barman who seemed keen to close regardless! If I had known this we would have stayed in the warm friendly... More

Nothing bad to say about this place, I had a slight problem with the toilet, but after informing the manager, he came and dealt with it right there and then, advising me to do the same thing when needed. The room was comfortable and warm, and the staff friendly, helpful, and happy to joke with me. I've been before, and... More
