We spent 2 nights in Lewes in November. We booked the Legacy White Hart Hotel using a special offer code which included our stay at the hotel for 2 nights, evening meal with Prosecco, breakfast and afternoon tea, and having read many bad reviews on here before our visit we didn't have very high expectations! However, we arrived to find a beautiful 16th century coaching inn, in a perfect location right on the main road through Lewes. The place was full of original features and antique furniture, with a number of sitting rooms with open fires and large restaurant area. Our room was in the main building (which we requested after reading bad reviews of the annexe), and it had original wooden beams, a comfortable bed, and basic en suite. The food in the restaurant was very nice, breakfast was table service with the option of self-service fruit/cereal etc. Lewes is a lovely quaint town with lots to see and do, and the Legacy White Hart Hotel was a perfect base from which to explore. We didn't use the spa facilities as I'd forgotten my swimming costume, but it looked nice from outside. Our ONLY criticism would be that the same music CD was played in the hotel and restaurant for our whole stay, and there's only so many times you can listen to Greensleeves!! This isn't a hotel for someone who wants a modern, characterless, immaculate place, but if you want to stay somewhere full of history, quirky original features (including the original 'uneven floorboards' which someone had complained about!!) and bags of character, then we would recommend this hotel.
