            Individual guest reviews

            • Group of friends
              7.0

              Our family had a total of 6 rooms as we were there the night before a family funeral so I can't really answer the above questions as I don't know. However, the staff were exceptionally friendly and the service in the bar and at breakfast was excellent.

              Only drawback was no lift so stairs could be a problem for less able/agile customers.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Good efficient service, superb historic building, good attention to detail

            • Single
              7.4

              Convenience to shops. The dinner was good and the breakfast was extremely good. Staff were extremely helpful and efficient.

              The fact that parking is so limited and I had missed this on your website so failed to book a parking space.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              I liked the quirky rooms. The hotel was smart, but had a relaxed and friendly feel.

              Rooms not that big, but fine for a short stay.

            • Single
              7.8

              The staff at reception were exceptionally welcoming and clear both on checking in and out. I was running late with checkout so called reception and was courteously accommodated. The hotel has a pleasant ambience and attention to detail in the room was appreciated. I would have extended my stay however a conference meant the hotel was fully booked. Breakfast was worth eating with an unusually good choice, unlike many other hotels that offer greasy, tasteless fare.

              The only issue is limited parking and it's advisable to request a spot when making reservations.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              The staff were obliging and moved us to a better room as we like a bath and there was no bath in our 'bathrom'.

              The instructions on how to find Pelham House were useless!

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              None of the above really fit the hotel. We thought it a very stylish hotel in an attractive town with the facilities we seek, viz. good location, comfortable accomodation, very good breakfasts ( we did not dine there and it was idially situated for Glyndebourne, which is the reason why we had travelled to Sussex. We would not be interested in swimming pools, spas, keep fit centres etc. We will definitely stay there again.

            • Single
              9.6

              IThere was a function on that evening, so I asked for an alternative room as the room I was allocated in was in the courtyard opposite the entrance. The receptionist arranged an upgrade immediately. The receptionist was very polite, warm and friendly with all the dealings I had with her.

              -

            • Couple
              4.2

              Quality of the food.

              The room wasn't ready for 15:00. We were then given a room literally in the car park, noisy and the curtain had to be drawn at all time if we didn't feel like socialising with delivery men and workmen. The service at breakfast was one of the worse I have ever experienced, I sat down asked for the menu as the one I had on the table was just the folder (the menu had been removed). After receiving the menu the waitress never returned to take the order I eventually managed to get the attention of another waiter. The whole process took an incredible 40 minutes before I had my food delivered and I had to then call someone over again for salt and pepper. The all thing was a shamble.

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              Staff friendliness

              Car parking minimal. Picture of hotel on the net doesn't represent the hotel's actuall location fairly.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              Excellent breakfast. Very good location in Lewes and a charming place. The room was a bit small.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              An enjoyable stay at a very good hotel in a handy location just off the main street. Nice room with sparkling bathroom and super clean quality bed-linen. Plenty of modern paintings and sculptures to see in the hotel and in its gardens which made the place interesting and stylish. Staff were efficient and welcoming. Would happily use this hotel again.

            • Older travelers
              7.8

              Friendly and attentive staff. Comfortable room

              WiFi did not work on our bedroom. Very limited parking at hotel (need to prebook for the 4 or 4 spaces available). Parking at railway station - 5 minute walk.

            • Single
              9.6

              The location near Glyndbourne Opera Festival and the direct transport to Glybdbourne. The friendly service, personal attention to detail e.g. when I returned to my room after the opera the bed was turned down, chocolate on the pillow and classic fm tuned in - heaven!

            • Group of friends
              9.0

              It is a very attractive hotel and I had an excellent breakfast ouitside viewing the lovely gardens.
