4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here a few times. A pleasant place, really pleasant staff, nice rooms, clearly popular as a carvery at the weekends. The beds in the rooms I've used are not the most comfortable, but other than that a very agreeable place to stop over. Winchelsea is quaint, historic and lovely. The lodge is not a large hotel chain so don't... More

My wife and I stayed here on the night of our wedding before going away on honeymoon. Our room was spacious, it had a lovely view over the fields with rabbits running around. The staff are friendly and the food is awesome! We've been back here on Birthdays and Anniversaries. Highly recommend for a relaxing, getaway from it all time!

We chose this hotel as a base for visiting Rye, having been put off by Rye B&B rates! The staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, plentiful and very good value. I would love to give 4-5 stars but unfortunately we did not get the most basic requirement - a good night's sleep - until our third... More

My husband and I were en route to Hastings; hungry and thirsty! We popped into The Lodge - what a great decision! Hubby had ham, egg and chips and said it was the best ever. The ham was beautiful - thick and lean and so much of it. I had a cheese and pickle baguette - yummy. We then sat... More

My wife and I ate at The Lodge on Saturday 25th April. The menu is comprehensive and reasonably priced. We had two prawn cocktails, liver and bacon and a hunter's chicken. All were good sized portions and served in an efficient and cheerful manner. The duty manager was attentive and friendly and all in all I would certainly return in... More

Hadn't visited the place since it was a pub many, many years ago and was really impressed with every aspect of The Lodge. Very friendly welcome and an excellent choice of both dishes and menus. The food was faultless and couldn't believe the prices! Two really delicious lasagnes with garlic bread and salad, one Eton Mess and a delicious Bakewell... More

Went for Easter Sunday lunch. Because they were busy and there were 13 of us including 6 children they put us in the function room downstairs. Staff were v attentive and helpful even though they were busy and we were out of sight. The Carvery was faultless, well cooked, quality meats and a good choice of vegetables. Will definitely visit...
