Stayed for 4 nights in early May mid week. Had a smallish but good room overlooking the pool and the Downs.(Room 25 I think?). Very quiet - slept really well. Lovely view from the room and as the weather was good, the view was especially pretty. Negative? the windows were 'shot' in that they were a little old and steamed up in places and the room is quite 'old fashioned' in style but perfectly clean.The hotel is pretty sort of country house feel with well maintained gardens and if you go out the back it joins the walking path near the river that is a couple of minutes to the the village.
The staff are really good and make you very welcome. We ate in the hotel 2 nights and the food was excellent. Again the restaurant staff were very efficient.The first morning at breakfast all hot dishes had to be ordered - we made the mistake of ordering 'Full English' - which was massive - one order would have done for 2 of us! The next day they started doing a hot buffet breakfast which was more manageable.
The village if Alfriston is very pretty with a beautiful village green and immaculately kept. Tried 2 of the pubs for meals and they were both o.k., but nothing special. The food in the hotel was far superior, though admittedly more expensive.
We had a wonderful stay andf would recommend and return.
