Which is the best hotel to stay in

Hi everyone
I am coming to Lewes to stay for a few days in January and would like to stay in a really nice hotel. Could anyone recommend one, Shelleys looks like a good one but what about the White hart or the Crown or any other ones?

There's always the lovely Kingfisher Court or if you want something really posh, try the Saxonbury Hotel. Wonderful place.

Don't listen to him Jean. Shellys is probably the best hotel in Lewes but also the most expensive. I've never heard any negative comments about the place, unlike the others. If you don't mind paying, then it has to be Shellys.

The White hart is notorious for a lack of hygiene standards. (allegedly)

Shelleys or Pelham House, avoid the White Hart like the plague or you might get it.

Pelham House is the one to choose its lovely, the staff are very nice too, its 2nd only to Shelleys. Unfortunately going by the experience of users the White Hart has very little to recommend it.

The Kings Head rents rooms. Usually booked, so be in touch well in advance. Their menu is impressive too. Particularly the price's.

There are some good B&Bs and smaller hotels / pubs with rooms eg the Dorset.

And the Kings Head used to do B&B, don't know if it still does. I've not stayed at the White Hart, but I used to use the gym there - its sad that such a beautiful, historic building is largely let down by such a grubby and worn interior.

The owner of the white hart should be shot, its a disgrace to the town...would recommend a park bench any day of the week

I used to be a member of their gym, I'd see some real horrors - predominantly with dampness, mildew & fungii. That's what comes from squeezing a heated pool into the basement of a 200 yr old building.
And the fat kid that stands outside smoking, with his grubby white shirt hanging out - its not a good look, is it. I'd guess he was a KP, except KPs don't usually wear a shirt & tie.
In conclusion Jean, avoid The White Hart.

...and what happens when you get the 17 year old gym assistants to do the painting! They Hammerited the rusty bits of the weight machines, but it didn't dry properly because of the humidity so you'd come away with black gluey stuff on your hands!
The staff were lovely, I should say - but what a mouldy old dump they work in!

There are online reviews for the White Hart (POX INFESTED PIT!) I can personally vouch for the very poor standards. It would be interesting to see if they ever had repeat business. I doubt it.

I recently stayed in the White Hart Hotel in Lewes, I was hoping it to be a relaxing anniversary for my wife and I. The food was nice in reflection of its price, absolutely no problems with the service. The problem does not lie with the fine gentlemen who cared for us all weekend, in particular two members of staff who I got to know personally as Andy and Mo. HOWEVER, the general manger who I didn't get the name of did not have any time for us as customers throughout our stay...I consider him a disgrace as a manager as he appears to have no or little time for customers views or opinions....in fact I consider I highly arrogant and single-minded individual...For that reason and only that reason I consider it an highly unappealing place to stay and would not recommend it all to any visitors to Lewes....

We have just come back from a short stay at the White Hart. The room was clean and comfortable and the food, both for dinner and breakfast was of a good standard, with a good wine list at reasonable prices. The staff without exception were efficient and pleasant. We would certainly return. What is interesting is that the very negative comments are general rather than specific and do not give the reaction of the management when these complaints were made to them.

I stayed there for several weeks after being flooded in 2000. Its not the best hotel I've ever stayed in and certainly not the worst but I would probably go dfor Shellys given the choice

Yeah the Whi Tart is an ok place. Without it, where would I throw my kebab wrapper and puke up after all that stripey voddy?
