The pub itself had been refurbished with a good range of beers. The food was OK and the single member of staff seemed to have to do everything but was nevertheless friendly and helpful

It was a completely different story upstairs. Considering the level and state of the facilities we felt that at £90 our double room was overpriced by at least 50% compared with other accommodation in the town. We had to go down to the floor below to use the single toilet and shower provided for all 5 rooms. The maintenance was poor to non-existent: the toilet seat was about to fall off and the sealant in the shower was mouldy. The decor was tatty and the bedroom furniture was well past its sell by date: a bedside light fell to pieces when we tried to adjust it. The hot water in the bedroom was just a trickle – over 10 minutes to get it to run warm and the plug leaked so much it was impossible to fill the sink. No soap was provided and when we asked for some we were eventually given a partially used bar. We would not recommend staying at the Black Horse to anyone.

Good service and an excellent Breakfast.

Bathroom facilities leave a lot to be desired. ie: NO TOILET PAPER and a very ancient Lavatory system. All of these need refurbishing.

Very reasonably priced· I was in Lewes for a wedding, so just needed a base to change and sleep in and it was ok for that purpose. I wouldn't stay there for a holiday break. We changed our booking from the Crown because of the dreadful reviews about the managers and their reputation for not honouring bookings, so it was reassuring to know our rooms would be and were available on arrival

Room and shared bathroom were ok, but the way through from the bar to the bedrooms (via the kitchen) was shabby and gave the impression of being dirty and smelly. With a bit of work this could be improved , which would create a much better first impression.

friendly helpful staff

room not worth the money, only worth half of what we paid,that would have been a fairer price for the level of accomodation the black horse are offering.wouldn't recommend the black horse as value for money is very poor.

Ideal for my needs, friendly and welcoming staff.

Parking was not ideal, no pub car park, not much street parking available, used the public car park nearby.
