Seaford Road, Alfriston, East Sussex, United Kingdom
"We came here as a grown up family of 5 and my daughter’s dog to get away for a few days. We have been absolutely blown away by the friendliness and comfort of this establishment. We arrived before our check in time and the person on reception went out of her way to check to see if we could have our rooms early, unfortunately not, they had not been deep cleaned by this stage. We did manage to check in a little later albeit still earlier than our agreed time. We had a drink in the bar and we were all looked after really well in a very friendly professional manner, including Milo the dog who was presented with a bowl of water and some fussing from the staff member. The room was very well presented and was in character of the style of the property. The bed was enormous and very comfortable, there was plenty of drawers and wardrobe space to accommodate all of my wife’s “extra” clothing and even had enough room for me to store my stuff too, bonus! The bar and lounge areas were very comfortable and allowed us all, including Milo, to sit together. We spent quite a bit of time sitting in there playing cards and other family games together, I won 2 of the games. The surrounding area was a delight to go for a dog walk and you can walk as far or not as you please. The hotel is a short drive from Seaford which is a stoney beach, Free car parking on the road on the seafront, we sat together and watched the sunset over the sea. Alfriston is a small village and offers a few restaurants and pubs. We had a meal in the hotel to celebrate a birthday, mine, and we had a lovely evening meal in the lounge as we were allowed to have the dog with us. The service was extremely friendly and the food was very good value. I recommend the sausage and mash if your there on a crisp winters day. Breakfasts were plentiful and relaxing, no rush to complete or vacate, we stayed in for a while drinking tea and enjoying our family time. To sum it up; friendly, comfortable, great area, we will return, suggest you visit. "
"Fourth visit to this lovely hotel, sadly only for one night this time. We took the half board option with Booking .com which worked out as really good value as the food here is excellent and even under covid restrictions, the quality and brilliant service is just the same. Nice touch to be greeted at reception as a returner, we always feel so welcome here. Good to see the owners still investing in the hotel, lots of new furniture in the public rooms and the bathroom in room 19 was new and really nice. We also had an afternoon tea which was delightful. Comfortable large bed, the room was very clean and quiet. The furniture is old fashioned, but really good quality. I only have one tiny gripe, the thin pillows, spares had obviously been removed. See you next year x "
"What makes this beautiful country hotel even better is the amazing food and kind, attentive staff. We shared the wonderful 18oz ribeye which was cooked to utter perfection, and we throughrully enjoyed the shiraz. The manager and small team of staff worked tiressly ensuring everything was OK. We also loved the pianist who played during dinner and missed him when we retired to the bar. A truely wonderful weekend was had celebrating my birthday. We will most definitely be back. Thank you"

High street, Alfriston, Alfriston, East Sussex, United Kingdom
"Stayed at the wingrove last night and it was lovely from start to finish. Sharon at reception was lovely to talk to and very helpful. We stayed in room 14 which is spacious and the housekeeping team have done amazing job with the room! It was cosy and very clean, we couldn’t ask for more!! Dinner and breakfast was amazing the food was perfectly cooked, good portion size and it came out in right time. The chefs really do know what they are doing when it comes to food. Service was brilliant and efficient and we will 100% be returning back. What a lovely get away myself and my girlfriend had, just what we both needed. Beautiful views of the downs and endless walks to go on."
"From stepping in to the front door and throughout our stay the staff, service was second to none, very friendly and welcoming. Room was brilliant and very comfortable. No 11 overlooks church, very quiet and the bed was incredibly comfortable could have stayed there all day. NY meal was excellent, plenty of it and of a high standard. Breakfast/brunch couldn’t have been bettered and we wished we could have stayed longer. Would like to come back as love Alfriston as a base to explore Sussex and would definitely stay here again."
"We found this place easily as Alfriston is a small village and they had helpfully warned us of road works limiting access. Warm welcome. Not an easy place to get luggage either from car park to reception or up narrow winding stairs room was spacious as was bathrooms albeit old fashioned shower. We were told room would soon warm up but sadly it didn’t. Charming young lady offered us another room at far end of building. By then we had no time to repack & relocate. As we attending a function locally the reason for our stay. We spent a sleepless night in very cold room inadequate pillows and rather hard bed(needed a toper) Breakfast was ok. No one was able to offer récompense so to we were charged full tariff. I feel young girls who don’t know how to sort out central heating should not be left in charge without back up Check if they say the heating will be on soon don’t unpack until it is!"

Little Horsted, Uckfield, East Sussex, United Kingdom
"Booked a few weeks before for a couples weekend. Setting lovely and room very nice and spacious, though a bit dated and gloomy and could definitely do with redecorating. It’s a very mixed bag here, the main issue being really inconsistent levels of service which ranges from lovely people to unorganised, chaotic and disgracefully rude staff. We hadn’t had chance to book our spa treatments but given there’s such a big offering and we had paid a fair whack for two nights in an executive room we thought we might still get chance to book on to something. Upon arrival we were told if we wanted to do this to speak to the spa staff on the phone or in person so we went down and were greeted by cold stares from a line of four spa staff, who didn’t respond to our friendly hello. When we asked if they had availability we were abruptly told by the lady on the desk “no we’re fully booked and are for the next few weeks”. We asked if there was nothing at all Saturday or Sunday on any treatment and she (sarcastically) said “no, normally when you book these sort of places you know you book your treatments way in advance” at which point my gf and I looked at each other bewildered by her rudeness. We fully appreciate the times we are in and the fact that it’s not the staff’s fault we hadn’t pre booked the treatments, though it should be made clearer upon booking the room online or on the phone that this is absolutely essential if you want any chance of a treatment. Naturally we were disappointed as this was a part of the weekend we were very much looking forward to and it was meant to be a “spa” break after all. Though having seen previous reviews and the also abrupt rejection/hanging up I received from the golf shop over the phone when I rang up to enquire about any tee times for hotel guests, I was semi-unsurprised (again something booking earlier avoids but some good manners cost nothing). What would it have cost the spa desk to see our disappointment and be nice and just offer to call us asap after any cancellations or something (which they eventually did after we got rather annoyed at how rude they were being, we had literally just arrived and that was one of our first impressions of the place). To add, the other spa staff at the desk all decided to start putting their two pence in, including “Jack” who proceeded to say “oh you wouldn’t go to football without doing....” at which point I asked them to stop patronising us. I asked if I could speak to the manager to which he responded saying he’d try to find his card, but then said oh actually I can’t find it. Otherwise, some lovely staff across the hotel and nice food off the pavilion evening menu, though the breakfast and other food was mixed including some very suspect scrambled eggs and bacon. I appreciate there is an influx of demand and it is not easy for the hotel and the staff at the moment but again good manners cost nothing especially when the room price is pretty dear, you expect at least a reasonable l"
"Stayed for 3 nights and was hugely disappointed. When we arrived, we were struck by what a classy looking hotel it is, but that proved to be its most impressive feature. Our room was a nice size and was perfectly clean, but the absence of a fridge was a surprise (not sure if this was a COVID precaution, but there didn’t appear to be an obvious place for it to reside) and the bed was so soft, both my wife and I have ended up with bad backs. I absolutely understand the need to limit numbers in the gym and swimming pool because of COVID, but there were frequent occasions that we phoned (and when they could be bothered to answer), only to be told to there were no free slots for either, only to then subsequently be granted access when we visited the reception and pointed out there was hardly anyone using either facility. This sort of laziness is infuriating, a situation made worse when we were also told there was not a single free massage slot available until November, which, if true, is something that would have been useful to be have been told at the point of booking. The biggest criticism however lies with the pitiful excuse for a breakfast. When being shown to our table, we were greeted with a brown paper bag, containing a croissant wrapped in cling film, a Luke warm yoghurt and a banana. Thereafter, we were able to order a cooked breakfast, which alongside the cheap orange juice concentrate, consisted of the cheapest and tasteless ingredients you are likely to find. No danger of finding local produce here, the singular sausage was more of the dirt cheap economy variety, the bacon had more fat than meat, the tomatoes had been waved over the grill and the baked beans were the smallest portion I have even seen. Even the bread was of the cheapest sliced economy variety. When staying at a hotel in the summer, that hotel had understandably stopped the self service breakfast buffet normally on offer, replacing this with the same buffet choices, but where this was served to you by waitresses behind a Perspex screen, with they and us all wearing masks. This meant we were still able to enjoy all the usual offerings of cereal, fruit, cakes, et al. Not difficult to arrange, but clearly no one at the East Sussex National has that kind of wit, as they provided nothing of such basic offerings that one would expect in a hotel of this supposed calibre. I absolutely understand that hotels and others in the hospitality industry have suffered enormously during the pandemic, but such disorganisation and a propensity to do everything on the cheap, wringing out as much as they can from customers for the smallest outlay, is not the way to engender return visits. Even the request to keep our room for a further hour was met with an agreement to do so.......for an additional £10.00. We won’t be returning."
"Firstly I’m really disappointed at having to write this review, as the East Sussex has always been our favourite go to hotel for a special treat, but this time was so different - my husband booked us the Valentine’s Day special which included a spa treatment, 3 course meal etc. Well when I rung up to book the spa, I was told there was no appointments for anything the whole weekend! When we complained about this at reception on booking in - we where told we could have a voucher (but as we don’t live that close, travelling there just for that wasn’t viable). Our room was ok - but they are starting to look tired with flaking paint and the balcony furniture was really not nice! Our afternoon tea was lovely - when we finally got it, it seemed to take forever to arrive! The evening meal was our main problem, we wasn’t given any choice on timings, told our table was at 7.30...there were no starters we liked and mains where so basic and not enough choice - so we decided to pay extra for a sharing steak - it was delivered to our table by two boys (yes I meant to put boys) who didn’t even talk just put the steak on the table and left, to say this was a sharing steak would be a big stretch, to me that would be for one person not two, we questioned this only to be told it’s weighed correctly. This cost us £22 extra!!! Even though we only had two courses, not three that we had paid for. Desert was the only good part. In my option it would seem that staff levels have been cut back to the detriment of the level of standards we have come to expect from this hotel. On checking out the member of staff was not interested in our concerns at all and told us to email the manager - this is something I’ve done twice now and to date I’ve not received a response! We’re really upset as I just don’t think based on this experience we will be back! "

King Edwards Parade, Eastbourne, East Sussex, United Kingdom
"We went for a weekend , including a dinner dance, with some friends and had a lovely time . The staff were very welcoming at check in and helpful throughout the weekend . Service and food at Fridays dinner , Saturdays dinner dance and breakfasts were excellent as were the bar meals. The bars and the several lounges( including games and snooker rooms) are well set up and comfortably furnished . There are several function rooms buy the hotel staff seemed to cope comfortably with 3 major events on at same time on Saturday night. The hotel is ideally situated for all the local amenities and attractions as well as town centre . Rooms were comfortable and clean ( but controlling their temperature was a bit of a challenge) . Elliott, Helen ( in the bar/lounge) and Shaun ( in main restaurant & at dinner dance) deserve special mention for their rapport with customers even when very busy . Well worth a visit . "
"We stayed at this hotel for one night on the Travelzoo offer. We paid extra for an upgrade to our room and was very happy with the room we were given. Direct sea view and very comfortable bed. We had a separate shower (it would have been nice to have a shower cap as I wanted a quick shower and did not want to get my hair wet, but there was not one there - hint hint management) We also had a separate bathroom with bath, sink and toilet. We had a cream tea in the afternoon which was lovely but the poor barman was very overstretched, serving drinks, bringing food, trying to clear tables etc. He did a great job but could have done with a hand, well done to him though. Breakfast was lovely and service was excellent. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay again. Staff seem to organise lots of charity events which is brilliant. Parking is a bit limited but you can buy a parking permit from the hotel for £1 which entitles you to stay until 11am next morning."
"Amazing room, beautifully decorated with stunning sea views, the lights from the big wheel adding to the romance. Very clean with high COVID safety measures in place. All the staff were extremely welcoming and friendly making our stay so enjoyable, we can’t wait to return."
