Location Friendly staff at breakfast
The bedroom was clean and the bed comfortable. The location in the town centre was ideal for our purposes With ample car parking and restaurants nearby.
The overall decoration was very basic and sub standard giving a 'tired' feel. It was not what you would expect in 2014. The breakfast was only served between 9am and 10am and there was no warning of this when we booked. The bar area was poorly laid out and unwelcoming with basic decoration and furniture. Overall it was like being back in the 1950s!
Very helpful staff
Room very small, Air freshener was overpowering Shower room terrible Bed very lumpy Pillows very thin Bed head falling off bed Wallpaper coming away from wall No evening meals served
Decrepit, filthily, tiny, pathetic wc facility, dripping tap, drain smell. door hanging off. Just disgusting.
Breakfast was delicious.
Staff were both friendly and helpful.
The whole place could seriously do with a complete make over. The room was like stepping back in time 30 years. There wasn't even a plug for the sink.
Rooms very dated and basic.
Dirty, dysfunctional amenities, scary locals in bar with scary dogs, decrepit interior throughout, Hammer Horror decor and furniture in room, green alarm light in ceiling on all night - even more horror atmosphere, weird food for breakfast. Had that 'Get me out of here' feeling as soon as we booked in. Never again.
We can't review the other bedrooms so not sure what the others are like. We didn't have a lot of time so accepted the room we were given. This was meant to be a short one night stop and we were glad we hadn't booked longer. So, where do we start? Generally grubby all round. Carpet was fraying at the edges and lifting, bathroom grubby, bedroom grubby! Generally it was pretty disgusting actually and not worth the £80 for the night. We didn't hang around for breakfast choosing a local bread bakery instead. Only realised later this hotel was subject to a Channel 5 Hotel Inspector episode and dubbed 'one of the worst establishments'. Supposedly it has improved but I wouldn't waste your money. The only time I did minimal research... and paid for it. However, if you look at their main website you'd be forgiven for thinking you were actually booking something half decent.
Location and Staff
Bathroom facilities plastic covering on mattress
Lovely comfortable room, great bathroom, excellent breakfast and really friendly and helpful staff.
it was available!
In need of refurbishment
Staff were friendly, the cooked breakfast was good
No towels in room, lights not working, the awful shower/toilet pod in the corner of the room (with light not working properly), the frame of the bed sticking out about 4 ins each side from mattress, the way I was told that if I had phoned personally it would have been £25 cheaper than booking on Booking.com - she passed on the cost of the whole fee to her customers.
Nice bacon at breakfast. Nice toiletries.
Very very dirty and neglected. Carpets needed vac and cobwebs hanging in room and corridors.No hot water and very poor bathroom cubicle. Stained looking towels and filthy curtains. Sad because it could be a nice heritage style hotel/pub.
Nothing about it
The pub clientele 'welcome' at the entrance. The wardrobe doors falling off. The sand paper quality towels. Not a great advertisement for a lovely town like Lewes.
Nothing, we didn't have a chance to sleep there because the owner was drunk and refused to accept our reservation.
Don't even think of going there. The town is quite nice but the lobby is a bar with drunken clients en a drunken owner.
are you kidding
This place should be shut down. I missed the two posters in the pub stating no drugs trading. I think this was becuse I had to pass the people smoking on the door step without shirts and then get past the kitchen smell(that then stays with you through out the hotel). The room was at the back next to the most disgusting mould wall. The room at first sight seemed okay, but the bed bug bites have not helped. The breakfast might give you a heart attack. The staf seems friendly, but clearly a strong undertone of aggressiveness. We were advised by a few members of the local community not to request the last days money back because they have a tendancy to be agro. I would not normally enter a pub like this, I should have turned around and never slept here. Lossing the last night here was the best thing we did. This place has been reported to trading standards and should be closed.
Excellent breakfast and very helpful staff
Very cramped en suite. Bar staff patting dogs and handling glasses at the same time.
Breakfast was very good, though eating it in the bar - on a bar table far too low - didn't offer the best environment.
Very depressing, tired decor in the rooms - wouldn't want to stay in on a rainy evening.
Very nice landlady, helpful, with great stories. The Inn has a rich history and is a listed building. Breakfast was ok. Good location for town , culture and hills. Room was very peaceful considering it's above a pub!
A bit run down, ok as basic accommodation, broken door hinge and tap tops broken in sink.
We got a warm welcome from the staff
We were given the wrong information regarding check out and breakfast times, and when trying to check out there was no one available. When it says en suite bedroom, take it with a pinch of salt. Was more like a caravan loo!
the hospitality, the regulars and the food
To be honest I was a bit concerned at what we would find based on previous reviews. However, staff friendly and room clean.
Pod bathroom had a disinfectant smell. Would have been nice to open the windows up to make the room fresher.
The fact that when I was traveling to them I telephoned as requested to inform them that I would arrive after 6pm. I was told that my room was double booked and that they would find me another room at a different Hotel which was well below standard.
Disgustingly dirty; needs renovation help!!!
