Amon Wildes - Re your comments on the Premier Inn under the Cote Thread I am intrigued to know where you get your information regarding the effect the Premier Inn is having on the other long standing bed and breakfasts in Lewes? How could you possibly know this? Do you run a b & b maybe and you are speaking from your own experience? However, you should not make a general statement that you cannot support - or can you? I very much doubt it. It could have a catastrophic effect on the small b & b's that have worked hard for many years to build up their businesses, but it is way too soon to tell. Please refrain from making sweeping statements that you cannot substantiate.

Well, I do run a B and B and the Premier Inn doesn't appear to be making much impression on bookings. It's two different markets: people who want b and bs and Airbnb don't want to stay in a Premier Inn. When unable to accommodate people, who tell me they have tried many other b and bs too, I do suggest they try the Premier Inn.

More sweeping statements! I utilise both types of accommodation, and always have. I tend to lean towards brand new Travel Lodges / Premier Inns, so here in Lewes the hotel would get my custom.

Like you Traveller I utilise rather than use accommodation because I think it makes me sound a special kind of person. Swiss Tony comes to mind.

I don't think Santa is on-line at all, you just have to leave a note by the chimney. And hope you've been good all year. more
I like the Walking to Mount Caburn at the weekend, Lounging about in Southover Grange Gardens eating strawberry ice cream in summertime, Proms in the Paddock, wicked night
