Have just spent 2 days here with friends and found it very clean and the staff very helpful.. The breakfast was very very good... The only small issue we all had was there was no hooks to hang towels on, but i wouldn't say it was a criticism. Would definitely visit again 👍👍👍

This lovely, clean and friendly staffed hotel. Serves great no nonsense food cooked to perfection. It is 2 minutes from the beach- perfect is great for a short stop over or cousin days respite. Ideal local bakery for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea.Thank you Pevensey.

We had a lovely few days here. Breakfast 5*. Everything you could possibly want. Only slight problems. Room small and cold. Was supplied with a small heater when we requested it. Made to feel very welcome

Run down rooms, rude staff, unprofessional, poor showers, uncomfy beds, overall not a good place to stay. House rules dictate you have to buy food and drink from the hotel bar, you are not allowed to take anything to your room not purchased from the Hotel.

It was meant to be a lovely weekend away for me and my partner. As soon as we reached the car park it didn't feel good. We walked into a public bar with our bags - no reception area. The decor, the choking smell of stale smoke from when you could smoke in bars and the dirt of the place... More

On arrival at The Bay you were politely shown our reception area and you requested to see the room you had booked. Upon completion of the viewing you informed us that you were unable to stay in the room as it was above a public house, this is stated on all our websites. We politely explained to you our company...

(This place gets one circle only because I couldn't give it a ZERO. Also, we were international travellers (Aussies) on a self-drive holiday. We booked in Australia, going by the photos and description online - which we now know to be totally inaccurate.) The place is a disgrace. We were greeted as though we were an inconvenience and had to... More

Needed one night accommodation in the area at reasonable rate. This pub/hotel fitted the bill perfectly. Staff very welcoming, room a bit basic and could do with a good dusting but bedding was clean, plenty of towels and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, choice of toast, cereals, juice, full english or the whole set. Perhaps not for a family... More
