We stayed for the weekend in, what is, essentially, the only hotel in the village. The location is superb, with a great seafront view. Had we booked earlier, we may have got a room overlooking this view. However, we didn't, so we had a view of the traffic junction and Tesco Express. The room was clean though, and had everything we needed. The bed was large and very comfortable. Thicker curtains would have blocked out the front floodlights, however.We weren't there to spend too much time in the room, so for the price paid, it was quite suitable. The staff were, with one exception, friendly, efficient and helpful. (Perhaps the gentleman in the reception area, who couldn't bring himself to make eye contact with his guests, or greet them with a 'Good Morning/Afternoon', needs to reconsider his vocation!) The Hotel is a great base for exploring the pretty village of Rottingdean. There is an excellent little cafe, 'The Sea Spray' run by Eric, where it is possible to experience the very best coffee! The restaurant ' Bistro Gourmand' offers the most exquisite French food, prepared and cooked by the French owner-chef, Frank. Forget anything else - this is the food of dreams!
I would return to The White Horse in order to explore further a beautiful part of the country. It does need a bit of TLC in certain areas - the paintwork for example and some of the furniture is somewhat tired, but it's a welcoming place and value for money. We only ate breakfast in the hotel, but it was freshly cooked to order and definitely worth waiting for. Much better than the usual buffet style found in most hotels these days.
