The rooms at the New Sussex Hotel are beautifully decorated, well-appointed with great attention to detail and are spotlessly clean. Ours had an amazing view of the sea. Great atmosphere in the bar and particularly enjoyed the live music on Friday night. The food was amazing, very reasonably priced and we ate in the restaurant every night. The apple and... More

My sister has just moved to Lancing. We arrived in the bar and proceeded through to the garden as I had my Labrador dog with me. The garden was really impressive, very large bright area, with a section especially designated for dogs. The benches inside the low fenced area had clips on for the dogs lead. Water bowls too. A...

Overall I was happy with our stay, we booked a family room to accommodate my sister and 3 year old niece. The room was a good size and was very clean, they laid out the sofa bed ready for my sister and niece, as per previous comments I think a couple of things that couldn't be helped by the owners...

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 ?

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
