There is not a lot of choice of hotels in the Shoreham / Lancing area, so not much competition for the New Sussex Hotel. It is centrally located right opposite the beach (more on location later) and is a real ale pub. I did not eat in the restaurant as the builders were knocking it about during our stay, but... More

Apologies you had such an unsatisfactory lunch, I was not aware of any complaint or I would have come over personally. Indeed we have found a new chef since you dined we take our food very seriously and I will investigate what went on the day as to why a complaint did not reach myself or my husband as there... More

Dear Kim, None of your report is quite true is it ? On checking in I informed you our wifi was down, and we had not received your booking and you told me you had only booked it an hour ago so we were completely unaware you were travelling with a young child. My husband, son and I all tried... More

We stayed here this weekend, and it was wonderful. There is a very large beer garden plenty of room for kids to run around. We didn't eat there, however, the food sounded and looked amazing from what we saw. We stayed in the new suite, it's was lovely, it has been decorated in an luxury decor, with a lovely bathroom....

Stayed for one night to go to the Festival of speed. Only booked a week before and got the last available room so we weren't expecting too much. We got lucky and were given the New Sussex suite. A huge and very comfortable bed and the addition of a settee. So much better than having to sit on the bed... More

At the risk of suffering the wrarh of the owners (see other reviews that have negative feedback) we came here on a flying trip for sister's birthday. Paid £130 for a family room which was supposed to be a double bed and a single. I was very disappointed that in fact it was twin beds with just a mattress on... More

We had a delicious lunch at the hotel today with great friendly service. The food was served very quickly and this hotel is in walking distance to the sea front. We would definitely recommend and the staff were very helpful.
