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

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

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

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

What a dive! 1970's decor - avocado bathroom suite. The tiles could do with a gallon of bleach. The only saving grace - the beds were quite comfortable but there was only one pillow per person. I wrote my name in the dust covering the telephone. No bedside lamps and public lavatory type toilet roll dispenser in the bathroom. Breakfast... More
