In an excellent location. Food quality was very good and the staff were all very friendly.
The room looked a bit "tired" especially the bathroom.
They gave us a 4 poster bed with a double aspect room and we overslept it was so so comfy! I would definitely stay again what a good night's sleep!
The room was dated, general cleanliness was poor. Bathroom was disgusting!!
When I checked out
The lighting, there was no duvet cover on the duvet and it was dirty and shabby
It was convenient for the place I wished to visit
It was chaotic. The lights were very dim. It was very funny. For example, the girl in a red top asked what we wanted for breakfast (when we had emerged from the dimly lit cupboard where we self-served ourselves to orange juice coffee etc.). I asked whether the tomatoes were fresh or tinned. She said I could have either. I therefore asked for fresh tomatoes with my bacon and egg. The tomato that arrived was uncooked. It was hilarious! They were serving an English breakfast, but clearly had no idea what that was. It was a bit like Fawlty Towers.
Very friendly helpfull staff.It has such a nice atmosphere and a warm feeling. The Bar food was very nice.
I thought the bedroom was too hot.
It was convenient for the venue of a wedding we were atending
I booked a double room without ensuite and was given and charged for ensuite - £20 more than I expected
The reception was chaotic and didn't have any record of my booking for 2 single and 1 double room, which I made on the internet and was confirmed about 3 months ago.However we were all found a bedroom. The staff were generally friendly and helpful
Room okay,bar staff very good and freindly,evening meals ok.
Only serving contental breakfast ,no cooked ,asked for tea and toast ,did not get the tea and received the toast from another table which another customer left, went to a premier inn for a cooked breakfast.
Very old with real character
Rooms were very very basic with very old furniture, apart from new tele. Bed with no headboard and made up of 2 matresses no base. Needs updating
The Faulty Towers of East Sussex run by Manuel!! The owner was incompetent and rude. He didnt have a clue as to what he was doing, just seemed to make it up as he was going along. He even had to put my credit card through several times to make it work and insisted on payment on booking in.The hotel was dark with cold corridors. The room was adequate but rubbish for the price, with a poor shower and a pathetic breakfast of burnt toast and bitter coffee served churlishly and with very slow service all round. It took an hour to get a sandwich for lunch and water was served in a bottle with no glass provided!
A pleasant and friendly place
Wasnot infrmed of all the facilities the hotel had?
The bed was comfortableand the linen crisp and white The room was quiet and the curtains thick to keep out the light.
Location was suitable for my purpose.
The whole place was grubby, the carpet felt dirty and it was outdated. There were no nets or blinds on the windows so the heavy curtains had to be closed for privacy making the room dark. The only light was a central overhead light - no bedside lights. The duvet itself was one of the very cheap kinds with a synthetic covering which was grubby and bobbly. There was no outer/loose cover on the duvet and the duvet and the pillows should have been thrown out years ago. The bed linen however was clean. The breakfast toast was cheap white bread and there was garlic butter on the table which was changed upon request for two half pound packets of butter placed on the table in their packaging.
Friendly staff, good food.
Very dated decor (avocado bath suite). Missing tiles in shower. Huge dust webs. Mentioned this to Manager on departure. He thanked me for letting him know and blamed the cleaner. He did not really seem to be interested.
