Whilst we were not guests at the motel itself, the exterior facade and the surrounding grounds had roadside appeal. Our first visit was to the restaurant on Mother's Day. We were very impressed with the food and service. Looking forward to our next visit!

More economical than staying in Rye. Rooms are behind restaurant/ bar so slightly set back from the road. No traffic noise at night. Very comfortable stay. Would have been better if cooked breakfast was inclusive in price rather than extra but plenty of cereal, toast, croissant etc. Well recommended.

Visited the lodge for one night. Nice, clean rooms. Ate and drank in the restaurant, food was ok, fairly quiet pub. Nice location but maybe a little in the middle of no-where, need to drive even to the next pub. Overall a nice place and would stay here again .

Booked a weekend away here and so glad I did! Initially there was a little problem with the heating in the room, but once we spoke to hotel staff about it they could not have done more to accommodate us and make sure our stay was pleasant and comfortable. Would definitely return.

We'd arranged a walking weekend for some 20+ very particular people. From the moment we first connected Toby the manager to the moment we left nothing was too much trouble. We were very well fed in the evenings and great breakfasts , but it was the hassle-free service and very warm welcome which means we'll be sure to return. Thank... More

My partner and I stayed here for a cheap weekend break and wow! What a lovely experience we had from start to finish. The staff are really friendly, helpful and welcoming. The rooms are unique, comfortable, warm, clean and really nice, we had lovely views out of our window of endless countryside. The food was lovely....the cooked breakfast was especially... More

Went to The Lodge at Winchelsea for a meal on New Years Eve with my family and the service that we received was absolutely brilliant! From start to finish we were made to feel extremely welcome and it was a great way to see out 2014! The food was very nice as well.

We weren't sure what to expect on this 2 night Travelzoo deal, but found a lovely clean and warm room. Easy to park. Friendly staff although rather understaffed. We ate there on our first evening but the food not really to our taste. Not much choice for vegetarians and my 'grilled haloumi' came deep fried which was not very nice.... More
