Stayed over Valentine's weekend. The hotel is in a beautiful location and very peaceful (providing you are towards the back of the hotel but the main road is not that busy). the wonderful log fire was so lovely as you enter the hotel and the smell of it fills the corridors - in a nice way. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and although our room was not ready on time, we were advised on local walks. We found our way onto the 1066 walk and walked to Battle Abbey which was really nice.
The room was beautiful but the shower in the bathroom was no more than a trickle and the additional shower cubicle in the room was so loud you know other rooms could hear when you were taking a shower as we could hear others!
We ate in the restaurant in the evening and although the restaurant itself is nice the food let it down: strange tasting crab, very undercooked veg and the chocolate fondant was tasteless. Breakfast the next morning was painful as there was only one chef on and we had to wait ages. We had ordered the scrambled egg and salmon but wish we'd gone for the full breakfast as they seemed to be better. When the plates did start to come out of the kitchen, they seemed to all come out at once and it was pretty obvious that ours had been sitting there for a while. However, the waiting staff were really sweet and attentive and made up for the kitchen. Overall, the hotel is very nice, very cosy, clean and staff are great. I would definitely stay there again but would perhaps choose to eat elsewhere.
