I have been here on many occasions in the past and thought it felt quite special. The service used to be consistently good and the food was lovely. I haven't been for about 18 months and I am sad to say that this visit was disappointing. We arrived and were not acknowledged for a good 5 mins. Most of the... More

I have stayed at this hotel a number of times in the past and always found it very nice. Having just stayed again, I was a bit disappointed. Two of us stayed in separate rooms for three nights. The rooms were very good with nice views of the Sussex Downs and comfortable beds. On the first night we decided to... More

Just wanted to say what a great afternoon tea we had at Pelham house today. After reading some of the reviews I was a little concerned that we may be disappointed. This couldn't be further from the experience we had. Food great, cakes even better and the staff were friendly and helpful. Also comparatively we found the price very reasonable.... More

Wonderful hotel located in the historic town of Lewes, Sussex. Stayed there recently while attending Glyndebourne with great friends. Wonderful gardens and wonderful rooms. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite which is the best in the hotel. Lunch was nice but took a while and breakfast too. Bar closes 11pm for non-hotel guests but service after 11pm was slow to... More

My parents and I and two friends visited today for lunch, we found the service friendly, efficient and relaxed, and the food absolutely superb. My starter of Cornish squid was delicate and delicious and beautifully presented, my Dad's soup divine, my Mum and the friends brie and mackerel pate also excellent. Our mains were also sumptious, my steak plate was... More

Pros: Clean Central Pretty garden Cons - general: -You can tell it's run by 20 and 30-somethings. Treated like I was in the way, an unwelcome guest, had to seek out waitstaff every time I ordered food or drink. -Wound up eating my no-egg-included breakfast with my hands as no one brought me silverware or paid any attention to me...

Me and my fiancé recently got engaged just before staying at Pelham House. They were generous enough to give us a free room upgrade and complimentary Prosecco to celebrate the occasion. Both breakfast and dinner was of a very high standard. All staff were friendly and very helpful!

We stayed here after an exhausting cycle ride up over the South Downs Way. Very helpful staff and rooms retained a feel of more opulent times. Slightly tired and some attention to detail missing (carpets in bedroom). A gas failure at breakfast meant no cooked breakfast but this was refunded on the bill and the continental was perfectly adequate. Staff... More

Nice hotel with a very central location within Lewes that we visited while going to Glyndebourne Festival. The building itself is very traditional. Some of the reception staff were very nice, some unpleasant. The service for breakfast was very slow and we had to ask for some items a few times. The real issue however was that there was a...

Staff are good but this place is hideously over priced and we were all expecting a lot more. Very basic rooms, the extractor fan in the bathroom sounded like the engine of a jumbo jet and continued for about 10 minutes after the light was switched off. The sink didn't have a plug that worked, the blinds were pathetic and... More
