Amanda (the owner) made our stay for us...super welcoming and super interesting. We stayed in the apartment which had it’s own front door key, so Home from Home really. Location was just off the middle of the high street which was ideal and also very quiet. 10/10

Tips:

Anne of Cleaves house is shut Nov and Dec! Take a walk round the village, the architecture is sublime. The views from the castle tower are breathtaking. The Pelham Arms did nice food.

Tips:

We ate at the Snowdrop Inn which is a bit of a walk but the food was very good and reasonably priced. Great atmosphere. Only stayed the one night before catching a ferry from Newhaven which is very convenient. We parked without any problem in the High Street overnight. We would definitely stay at the Berkeley House again and combine it with a long weekend in Lewes as there is so much to see and do in the immediate area.

We visited Lewes for 3 nights while attending a wedding in Eastbourne, and really enjoyed our stay in the Blue Room. It is on the smaller side, but suited us as we were out most of the time. The location is excellent, about 5-7 minutes to the train station and just off the High St with shops, cafes, and restaurants. Amanda's daily breakfasts were delicious, and we were grateful for the individual attention and care she showed for every guest. Would definitely return!

We enjoyed our stay. Amanda was very helpful, the breakfast was delicious and the location is great. We did not like that we had to go across the hall to a separate bathroom. I had not seen that disclosed on the website, but maybe I missed it. I would have paid more to have had an ensuite bathroom. Also would have liked 2 luggage racks in the room, as we put one suitcase on the floor.

Thank you so much for submitting your review. Yes, the Green room is the only one that does not have en-suite facilities. The room, however is slightly larger than the others as a result, and you also get velour bathrobes and slippers for the "modesty dash" across the landing to the shower room! Small compensation I know. I will look at fitting in another luggage rack to make unpacking easier - thank you for the suggestion. All that said, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again if you are ever in the area. All the best, Amanda

Stayed in The Apartment. Lovely to have the additional space. Excellent location. Amanda really could not have been more helpful. Lewes is a lovely town and very convenient to jump on a bus to visit other places.

Tips:

Would suggest making reservation for evening meal.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you to stay and you are our first guests who've made a visit to Brighton's sewers! I never knew the tour existed, but you learn something every day! So glad you enjoyed the Apartment and Lewes and hopefully we'll see you this way again soon. All the best, Amanda.

Excellent facilities. Really nice rooms, better than a hotel. Breakfast was cooked in front you with great conversation. I was at a court case and this was very convinient for the court. Good wifi for working etc.

Tips:

Would thoroughly recommend this place to stay. I went for a run up the downs and it only took a few minutes to get out of the town on foot and into the downs. Stay here it is worth it.

A very smart upmarket b&b right in the centre of Lewes. Amanda is a great host and nothing is too much for her. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and the shower (in the en-suite bathroom) is excellent. There is a wide choice of food for breakfast and a good time to chat with Amanda and get some great tips on where to go and what to try locally. Or you could just put the world to rights as we did. A thoroughly enjoyable experience all round. Highly recommend.

Tips:

Great walks on the South Downs - walk from the house for about 45 minutes to reach a good point to start. Also, pottering around the local shops including the numerous antique ones is a must. You can have a day at the beach in Saltdean or Rottingdean and Brighton is very close too. In fact you could stay for a good few days and try everything.

Very quiet but central to town centre. Parking difficult in street but nearby car park was free from Sat night through to Sunday. Room was very well appointed. No en-suite to this room but private shower room across the landing and robes provided if required. Lovely breakfast. Whole place scrupulously clean. Owner so helpful and friendly - couldn't ask for better. Hope I can return again.

Tips:

Be aware of parking - pack so you can easily transport - not like us who just throw everything in the car!!!

A great period B&B situated close to the high street, pubs, restaurants and shopping. Nicely quirky, relaxing and comfortable, but with great new showers/bathrooms - although a colour other than pure white would be a bit more homely (but then I'm fussy). Breakfast great, with more than you could want for, all cooked and served with a smile. An honesty bar, for a pre-dinner beverage would be the icing on the cake!

I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay at Berkeley House and I take on board your comments about my colour schemes! I will give it some thought. Sadly, we're not licenced for serving or providing alcohol, but then we do have 17 pubs and an excellent wine bar (The Symposium) only minutes away from the house so I'm hoping they will meet most needs. That said, I'm always keen to hear guests' feedback so that we can continue to improve and tailor our offering to meet guests' needs now and in the future. We hope to see you back this way in 2017? All the best. Amanda
