“Perfect weekend.”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Just back from a lovely weekend. We had room 2 and it was spacious, quiet, with lovely views and a very spacious bath. The staff were lovely, the food excellent, the wine reasonable, and the location brilliant.

Room Tip: I don't think there's a bad one, we had a sneaky look in the rooms that had been cleaned and...

What a gem - Everything was perfect, the room dinner in the evening and breakfast. Everything was done for the guests comfort - there was even a heater and comfortable chairs on the balcony. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully maintained, the owner and staff were very friendly.

This old colonial-style guesthouse/hotel (only six rooms) in the gently rolling Sussex downs provides a wonderfully friendly and comfortable stay. Situated in the medieval village of Alfriston - a picturesque place of tearooms, restaurants and guesthouses in ancient buildings that lean precariously over the winding narrow main street. The owner, a local man, is present most of the time as a genial and ever-helpful host, conducting his young staff like someone who has invited you to stay in his country house for the weekend. Altogether a charming experience.

Room Tip: We would have preferred a room with a verandah, but ours had a good view of village green and the ol...

The most comfortable, luxurious and individual house that I have come across to stay in; the rooms and restaurant are fabulous and there is a beautifully kept garden. The staff are extremely accommodating and Nick Denyer ensures that the high standards are maintaned throughout. Even in this cool summer they take the trouble to light the wood burner in the sitting room.

No big screen 'lounges' or hostess trolleys here, thank goodness...

We can't wait to return.

We stayed overnight for my husband's birthday. A warm and friendly welcome was followed by tea and cookies on a huge leather sofa in the lounge room near the crackling fire. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and had a huge, comfortable bed and pillows. The bathroom was large with a lovely deep bath and Hermes toiletries. We ate in the restaurant and weren't disappointed. All three courses consisted of fresh, local ingredients, cooked perfectly. We had a peaceful night's sleep and were treated to a first class breakfast the next morning. The staff were all friendly and helpful and genuinely wanted you to enjoy the experience. Every part of the hotel was exquisitely furnished and even the music in lounge was perfectly chosen. We came home feeling refreshed and relaxed. All in all a wonderful experience.

We stayed at Wingrove House whilst walking the South Down's Way.

We arrived to a very welcoming reception from Nick the owner, who brought us lovely coffee and shortbread on the veranda. Nick made us feel very comfortable and nothing was too much trouble. He even offered us some fruit and bottled water to take with us on our outward walk.

We had an amazing meal in the restaurant, the food and service really were superb.

Breakfast was of the same excellent standard, and there is a very comfortable lounge with a log burner to relax in.

Overall a top class experience in a very stylish hotel.

Room Tip: Room 2 is dual aspect; very light and comfortable as well as very stylish.

We are lucky enough to live close to this fab place. Dinner and lunch are just wonderful. The menus are fresh and the food delicious. A good choice of menu and wonderful flavours and tastes. The setting is beautiful, surrounded by a lovely garden which is great to sit and have drinks in during the summer months, and right by the church and village green. The atmosphere is friendly, relaxing and stylish. Definitely worth a try, and we plan a walk over there soon, so we have an excuse to try the rooms for the night, which look to be great.
