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.

It’s a shame really as this was probably a great hotel once but the inside needs a bit of a refurb. Carpets on stairways were worn , in my room the carpet had obviously been lifted and not put back right. The floorboards in the room above creaked heavily. The bathroom is dated - for £130 odd a night I either want a good deep bath or a powerful shower - without a curtain. I had neither a shallow bath with it appeared had been repaired as was rusting - I didn’t fancy sitting in this and a shower with a curtain reminds me of being a student - not staying in a swanky hotel Oh and very annoyingly at The shelleys restaurant and hotel the restaurant was closed and they had no room service Ok winge over on the plus Comfy bed Decent towels Big room Decent WiFi Nice dressing gown Good secure parking Excellent location

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.
