This is a really excellent B&B right in the heart of Lewes. Really good stylish modern house and a spotless large room. Lynn and Nick Wiseman were very welcoming and produce lovely breakfasts in a room overlooking the town and the Downs. All the local sites and shops are a stones throw away.

I recently stayed at 'The Prospect' for one night with my friend.

We arrived at the centrally located bed and breakfast somewhat jaded after a lengthy journey. Our spirits lifted as soon as owner Lynn gave us a warm smile, welcomed us into the beautiful house and guided us on what to see/ do in Lewes.

Our ground floor twin room was absolute heaven! I have to say that this is THE BEST bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in! The room was exceptionally clean, uber-comfortable and beautifully decorated in neutral colours. I was particularly impressed by the small touches that 'The Prospect' offered.....in our room was: literature on the town, tea/coffee/ delicious biscuits, bowl of grapes and satsumas (all devoured soon after we arrived!).

The highlight of any B & B stay for me is the breakfast....and 'The Prospect' did not disappoint. Breakfast is taken on the first floor in a spacious room that offers stunning views over Lewes. We took advantage of: full English, muffins, fresh fruit bowl, toast, prunes, juice, coffee.....a taste sensation.

I will definitely be returning to Lewes in the near future and 'The Prospect' would be my first choice EVERY time. Thank you Lynn for your warm hospitality.....just a shame we only stayed for one night!

We were so impressed with The Prospect for one night in October that we came back for four nights in November. The room was really spacious with a large workspace and wifi access. The bathroom was lovely, large and bright. We had access to a fridge and washing machine and dryer, excellent for travellers with a bag of laundry. Breakfast was upstairs in the family dining room, beautifully cooked and plenty of choice. We were able to park directly outside the front door.
Lewes is a charming town with a castle and a long high street lined with interesting shops, cafes and pubs. It is an easy bus or car trip to the coast. We had a lovely time there.

My grandmother was born in Lewes, so on a recent trip to England, I decided to stay a night in this charming town. It was a highlight of our trip, and the Wisemans helped make our stay extra special. We had never before stayed in a B and B, so we were nervous about what to expect. Our nerves were quickly settled. Lynn was a gracious host, and our room was cozy and wonderful. It may have been the most comfortable sleep we had during our entire two-week stay in England. The bed was soft, but not too soft. Lynn provided a detailed book outlining sites, restaurants, and many local activities. The breakfast was delightful--fresh fruit, breads, eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal...all the fixings. We were delighted with our experience and would heartily recommend the Prospect to any Lewes visitors.

First visit to UK since 1977, and traveled from Skye to Brighton. Lewes was our intended base for four days of easy rail and road trips to Brighton and London, as well as to visit old rugby mates around Sussex. The Prospect was cheerful, sunny very well located in Lewes right off main shopping street, three or four great pubs, including one Thomas Paine habituated in 1700's, and two minutes walk from Lewes Castle, ten from historic Harvey's Brewery. The Wiseman's are very gracious hosts, and friendly, cheerful welcoming people. Stay with them - this place beats most B&B places because of the people running it, and you almost don;t want to go out after the breakfast part!.

I spent a couple of nights at The Prospect as I was in Lewes for a friend’s wedding. The room was beautiful and clean, and the breakfast was the best I’ve had in a B&B. Nick and Lynn were fantastic hosts, and very knowledgable about the local area. Overall, it was a lovely stay and I would heartily recommend it to others.

The Prospect b&b has a good central location just off the high street yet peaceful and with off street parking. It is a very attractive house, Mr & Mrs Wiseman are the perfect hosts and the breakfasts are superb.
