“Very pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2010

Stayed here for a night before a friends wedding in Battle. Booked through a discount website and got upgraded on arrival to the suite. Room was a reasonable size, clean and tidy with exposed beams and 4 poster bed - no shower though only bath. Nothing amazing but thought it was good for an inn. Our room was above the bar but didn't hear much noise. Tasty cooked breakfast, friendly staff. Also saw one of the standard rooms, quite small but still looked nice.

We only booked the hotel the morning we stayed. Ideal for visiting the area of Rye, Battle, Bexhill, Hastings and Eastbourne. Value for money, staff mostly young, very friendly and helpful and hard working. Room comfortable a bit dated and bathroom had been improved. It was the little things which let it down such as a few cobwebs in room, unused mattresses in the stairwell where the fire exit was, carpets in the corridors could do with a hoover and door to room could do with adjustment.
Restaurant menu was basic fayre but well cooked and tasty - cheeseboard exceptional.

I found the hotel very clean, the room was spotless and the bed comfortable.
The breakfast was cooked fresh by Rowena
I did though book one of the Better advertised rooms.
I had no complaints and in fact booked an extra night there

Relaxinnz has 24 Hotels and advertise the Horseshoe Inn in Herstmonceux as one of its finest from the Prestige collection. It's missleading and incorrect information continues" it offers charm outstanding service and hospitality and so much MORE!!!"

The "More" I guess would refer to the sex stained bedding complete with pubic hairs, the musty smelling shabby room with damp mouldy walls in the corner! Cobwebs hanging from the ceiling! the room we were given was reminissant of a 1970's shabby Motel in dire need of a revamp.
If you are not happy with sleeping in a room of this condition, tough luck.....don't think about asking for a refund! You wont get one!
We left promptly without staying there!
Two cars in the car park and not one person in the bar or restaurant on a Saturday afternoon says it all!

An awful place to stay!

I booked this hotel on line and then read reviews . As i was travelling with my husband ,son and daughter in law I was really worried by some comments.It just shows you should not believe all you hear.We were welcomed by all the staff ,the rooms were very clean and comfortable.The food was great value and freshley cooked and the staff could not help us enough.I would recommend this hotel to anyone ,we had a really lovely weekend.and would certainly go back again.I think there has been a change of management since some of the previous comments and they are working hard to turn things around.

Overall our experience of the horseshoe inn was okay. We had our wedding reception and evening disco and buffet there. They made a great job setting the tables out as asked and the napkins were in the colour we requested etc and it all looked lovely!

Meal and evening buffet very good loads of food for buffet and good value for money.

Their downfall is better trained staff needed, rooms overhalled and cleaning staff's rooms inspected by the manager for standards weekly.

Fresh flowers needed all round and better resturant facilities.

This hotel has alot of protential!
