We stayed at Holmbush House as it was close to the village where we had lived for 15 years. We have since moved away & returned for a family celebration. It is well positioned if you want deep Sussex Weald explorations or just wish to enjoy the South Coast. Peaceful, tranquil & very, very restful.
The grounds are nice but the room wasn’t very clean; I found rubbish & lots of dust. The fan in bathroom was v dusty and so loud. The TV reception was very bad I could only get two channels. The bar & Reception was sticky and grimy to touch. The breakfast was very poor with a very slow domestic toaster, no staff, and a few boxes of cereal to choose to eat. I wouldn’t stay there again
Good Sizes room and bed but no hairdryer or trouser press as advertised. Couldn't work out how to adjust water temperature of shower. Would have been nice to have free bottles of water in the rooms too seeing weather was so hot. Good views from the rooms and set in beautiful grounds , would have had more time to,explore.
Be aware that breakfast is served quite late for a hotel. Did not like receptionist smoking at the front door of the hotel when i arrived did not like going through the restaurant to get to my room The room I was in had been nicely refurbished, it was a very big room for a hotel
Do not stay at the Boship Lions farm hotel unless you want to be woken up at 5.30am with the birds and ostriches singing and making a racket! The bed was hard, gaps under doorways would be a fire hazard. We intended to go to the Michelham Priory , but at the time of leaving the hotel it was closed. An ideal place to stopover.
Comfortable hotel although room 9 bathroom needs updating but they seem to be refurbishing. Food very good and loved decor in public areas. Also the fact that part of building very old. Lovely grounds
