Within Lewes, the location of the Prospect is excellent between the High Street and the Park. Our room was clean and a decent size, the bed was very comfortable so we both had a good night sleep. We used the double room which meant that we had to cross the corridor to go to the bathroom but that wasn't a problem; though I wonder what happens when the twin room is also used as the bathroom appears to be an ensuite for the double room.
Our breakfast was superbly cooked and was a very hearty meal that comfortably filled us through to lunchtime. For a B&B it was a shame that the breakfast time is between 7:30-9:00am even on a Saturday and Sunday which seems a little early as I think there should be the option of a lay-in on a Sunday.
Another cause for concern is that whilst parking outside is ample; the road is extremely narrow so if you have anything larger than a small hatchback it's likely that tyres and wheels would scrape on the kerb as you drive along the street.
Overall it was a nice place to stay; it's not the cheapest but then Lewes isn't cheap to stay in. Personally I think although it was nice it is overpriced by £15-£20 a night, the current rate is not significantly different to what I would expect to pay for a hotel.
