So, I read the recent reviews on this hotel after I'd booked it but decided to go with an open mind. I'm glad I did because it was absolutely fine. The reception is accessed from the car park and if I was being really critical, this area is a little bit tired but you don't stay in reception, do you?! We were early but the room was ready. The manager was very helpful, offered assistance with luggage, spoke to my kids etc etc. Our room was light and airy, spotlessly clean, comfy beds, fluffy towels and nice ensuite shower/wc. Our room overlooked the High Street so we were not bothered by the extractor fan that others talk about. I called reception for an extra pillow and one arrived in less than 5 minutes. We ate in the Italian next door in the evening, it was very good value with very generous portions! Breakfast was good and I didn't have to pay for the kids to eat
which was great.
This is an old Georgian Hotel so it is creaky and uneven and there is no lift. At this time of year it is hot, where isn't! There is nothing wrong with the curtains they are lined but the windows are big and its light early in summer, we put a blanket over the curtain, that did the trick.
Dont go expecting The Ritz but for the money it's great and it's location in Battle could not be better.
