What a place....it was just beautiful. We had the Shiraz room that had views from every window. I couldn't fault the place - so much thought has gone into offering guests a wonderful experience. Great welcome, complimentary drinks on arrival, Paul our host was engaging and also the chef of fabulous breakfasts. All the other reviews will confirm what a... More

What a fabulous stay in an amazing location with stunning views. Really felt at home. Paul, the Manager made all guests feel special and nothing was too much trouble. Other couples we met during this stay had stayed previously, we will be re-booking - no need to say anything else... Book yourself in and relax.

An unusual place to stay and full of character and charm, with stunning views out to sea, over the Seven Sisters and the South Downs. The accommodation is immaculately clean and the room and en-suite felt quite luxurious. A warm welcome greeted us with a cosy guest lounge with stunning views and up the stairs to the lantern room and... More

Staying at Belle Tout was an incredibly delightful experience. The pictures speak a thousand words. The place is amazing--historical with a cool back story! Decor outstanding--historical building but decorated to a high modern standard whilst maintains primal features. Great character! super immaculate. The host was one of the nicest people I met during my journey hiking ( walking really) over... More

If you do one special thing stay here, superb experience, nothing's too much trouble, lots of little extras that make you feel very special. Stayed here for our 25th wedding Anniversary and felt awesome. Belle Tout lighthouse is worthy of more than 5 stars. Brilliant without be pretentious. Highly recommended.

Had a wonderful stay at Belle Tout. I was in awe from the moment the lighthouse appeared as we drove up the lovely country roads. This was a surprise for my 30th and felt like an excited kid as we drove up the private road and my fiance revealed that we were staying here. Not only is it amazing to... More

I came here as part of birthday celebrations and thought it was absolutely stunning. The views from the Lantern room especially were gorgeous. Ian and Paul were both very accommodating and cooked a beautiful breakfast, with views from the dining room looking out to Beachy Head. Would definitely recommend and would love to visit again. A very calming place to... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this delightful place. The staff are friendly and we were greeted by Ian on arrival even before we had got out of the car. The experience was equally as good as the first time we visited. The Shiraz is a great room and the views are great to wake up to.... More

My Wife and I first visited 5 years ago, intrigued by a T.V. documentary on this unique B&B (technically a B&B, but really a boutique hotel). We returned for 2 nights with our adult Daughters to share our "find". They too were enthralled by the place, and I'm sure that we'll all be back. Paul was a truly attentive and... More
