We spent 1 night at The White Lion in a twin room. It was clean but slightly cool in temperature. Good location for walking into Seaford town. Very noisy from a party below but that did stop at 11 pm. Good breakfast with gluten free bread available. Nice to see a local public house busy and with guests staying. Would...

We had arranged to arrive at 1500hrs, which we did, but the greeting we received from the lady on duty was less than welcoming. We were also surprised to learn that the included breakfast did not start until 0745, far to late for us and latter than normal hotels. We were offered a cold breakfast which we took, which turned...

Clean and warm rooms. Bathroom good only issue is the water pressure for the shower but not a big problem. Breakfast excellent. Evening meals very good and a decent wine selection. Friendly and attentive owners. Would recommend this hotel if staying in the area.

Ate twice at this establishment while we were in the UK. Both times I found it a bit hard to get to the bar to order due to locals propped there. Anyway that aside the staff were friendly and obliging and there was a good selection of beers, wines and cider. There are two sections in the bistro/restaurant and my...

Stayed here one night, in a single room, everything good, no complaints, just a bit odd, no door on bathroom! It is a small room, so thats understandable! Breakfast nice - full English, plus parking is a bonus. Less than 10 minutes walk to town. Would recommend. Wasnt noisey!

We stayed here for one night before catching the 9 am ferry to Dieppe. The hotel was clean, the views were lovely of the sea from a panoramic window. The bed was comfy. The ensuite was a strange shape with a window into the bedroom. The tv was a good size, but the wifi was really below par, as it...

Having spent the morning on the McMillan Garden Trail this venue was recommended for lunch and we were not disappointed. Relaxing and pleasant atmosphere in the conservatory/dining area, food of a good standard and delivered to the table in good time, house wine very drinkable! Would readily revisit when in the area.

Clean and tidy room with good facilities including TV and free WiFi. Only 5 mins walk to the seafront and 5 mins walk to the station, good location. Breakfast was freshly cooked and the hosts were friendly and helpful.

We had an evening meal here on a bank holiday Monday (we were to catch the Newhaven Ferry the next day), so it was quite crowded. Quick service despite being busy; however, the food was not all that great. My wife had fish and chips that were ok, but I had a steak that was quite stringy and by no...
