We stayed for just one night on a special offer. It's a great location, Alfriston is a lovely little village and the hotel is within a very few minutes walk away. The building is set in lovely grounds (although they were partially under water when we were there) and would be lovely in the summer with several patio areas and excellent views.
The rooms are warm, comfortable and reasonably well equipped though lacking in character (as is the main restaurant). The bar and lounge are also very comfortable.
The food is very good, although vegetable lovers may be disappointed as very few are offered, even as extra side dishes.
In the main, the staff are friendly and helpful. The only exception was the head waiter who was very curt almost to the point of rudeness. I realise that the restaurant was very busy that evening but he rather let the team down and was no different the following morning at breakfast.
