I cannot really find fault with this delightful hotel.
Lewes is a lovely place to conduct a bit of retail therapy and the shelleys is the place to chill out after.
The building is very old but bang up to date re comfort, hot water etc. the staff were delightful and the food perfect. I've added some pics.
I guess if you're used to the travel lodge or holiday inn this is older much older.
We loved it.
