We stayed here for 5 nights to visit gardens and other sights in the surrounding area, such as Battle itself and gardens at Sissinghurst, Great Dixter and Driftwood Garden at Seaford. We also visited Batemans, Rudyard Kipling's house. There is a wealth of attractions in the vicinity, not all of which we could get to and we were mainly on a garden tour. The hotel was like a private house so don't expect spas and swimming pools. The full dining menu is available only on Friday & Saturdays & there is no evening meal on Sundays. This suited us very well as, having had lunch, we were very satisfied with a lighter meal served in the lounge-bar for supper. We found a warm welcome, a really comfortable, large bed and immaculate cleanliness everywhere. Our shower room was well appointed and the shower itself fairly powerful with apparently endless hot water. The breakfasts are top class and freshly cooked to order and the fine dining evening we experienced, on the Friday, resulted in truly delicious, well-presented food. We found our hosts and the staff to be both efficient and friendly and helpful with regard to directions or information. There is a large and attractive garden with a pretty sitting out decking area and koi pond and there is, invaluably, complete peace and quiet. On the day we left, our hosts were expecting the whole place to be taken over by one family, celebrating a Golden Wedding. This hotel would be absolutely perfect for such an occasion and it would feel exactly like staying your own home but without the work involved!
