Our only negative view of our stay was the fact we were up in the attic and that's a lot of stairs to climb-no lift,and after an evening out and a large late meal it was not the greatest idea,but I appreciate it was a cheap deal.

Well located and dog friendly! All of the staff were very pleasant and it was nice having a full breakfast before doing a long walk into the south downs.
Other Comments
The rooms are a little pricey for the standard. Particularly the rooms in the courtyard, which are not hugely sound proofed meaning you can hear passers by and those entering and exit the building.

The hotels is old and on the alls their is writing telling you about the history. My favourite story was on ve day the town had a bon fire and they were running out of wood so some of the locals ran in to the hotel and grabbed the furiture to throw on the fire and the staff were running to the bon fire trying to save the furniture
