The Shelleys Hotel & Restaurant, Lewes
Convenient and squeeky clean.
As I was saying, the staff was helpful, friendly and provided great service. The breakfasts and dinners were terrific and beautifully presented. Really good location, close to but not right in the town center, so it was quiet and convenient. I love that it's not a big tourist town, but is close to Brighton, London and Arundel, among other touristy places. Good train service to anywhere in southern England. I can hardly wait to go back and will definitely stay at The Shelleys.

Best hotel in Lewes
Stayed at The Shelleys Hotel for a couple of nights as I was seeing friends in Lewes. When I arrived the Manager took my case and took me up to my room to show me the amenities etc which I thought was a nice touch. All the staff that I met were friendly and helpful, and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Unfortunately the Hotel does not have a lift, which could be a problem for some people. I am not sure if they have rooms on the ground floor. The room that I had was nice and spacious, with a large antique dresser, the bed was nice and comfy. The bathroom was big as well.  My only gripe is that the wardrobe was quite tall so I had trouble stretching up to reach the hangers. The WiFi at the hotel was nice and fast, which is not the case in a lot of hotels I have stayed at. I will definitely be staying at The Shelleys again.

If you want something brand new & spot less clean this isn't for you. However if you want a lovely place with character, history, great staff, brilliant cooked to order breakfast. ...Second time I've stayed there and will go back next time I'm in that neck of the woods.

Nice old hotel with character.
Car park The room I was in was in good condition and very clean, nice bedding. Only negatives were: The bathroom window had unfrosted glass with just a net curtain so not sure how much can be seen from outside when in the shower with the light on. The route to the room would benefit hugely from having a few signs directing you to the room numbers. Several sets of stairs and turns are something like a memory test late at night.
