Hotel Rodney is a lovely property situated right in the middle of "downtown" Lewes - easy walking distance to everything, weekend parking in the bank lot behind the building, great bar. So much going for it. Do not discount the comments about small rooms. We selected a Deluxe Room thinking that the queen sized bed and description would give us a bit more room. If you want to spend any time in the room you may want to go with a suite to get adequate space. And the creaking floors! It's a delightful, old building but with every step we (or our upstairs neighbors) took the floors creaked noisily. So maybe get a suite on the top floor.
The staff is pleasant and friendly, the bar was great for watching some World Cup action and the proximity to the shops and restaurants of Lewes is perfect.
