This was our first visit to Sussex and our 5th at an Old English Inn. What a gem! We booked 3 nights using our Clubcard vouchers. As always a very simple process with nothing but very helpful, friendly staff on the reservation team.
We had upgraded to a superior room and we're not disappointed. The room was immaculately clean and superbly appointed with a king size sleigh bed and plenty of room to house our clothes and shoes. The hair dryer always proves useful so I don't have to remember to take my own. What a fantastic shower. We'll be investing in one of those at home!!!!
The staff were very friendly but the service was not consistent; although always very polite and helpful.
The breakfasts were amongst the best we have had anywhere in the world; lots of choice and the full English was always beautifully cooked. (If you leave the restaurant hungry after breakfast you only have yourself to blame.)
We love the menu choices available at the OEI as there's always something for everyone....even the fussiest of eaters. The menu choice is vast with an array of specials. The food service at The Roebuck was excellent. We dined late last night and had to wait all of 10 minutes for our starters with the main course served very soon after we had finished our starter! Hot food was piping hot and everything was nicely presented....We were very impressed.
There is a huge amount of off road parking and a very colourful 'cottage' garden to the rear. The pond wasn't the most beautiful we've ever seen as the filter/pumps were huge but the water was very clean and the fish looked in excellent condition. If you are a light sleeper and you visit in Summer, you may want to ask to be in a room away from the pond as you can hear the water running all night if your window is open. This wasn't a problem for us, but it would be a shame if it were to ruin your experience of a stay in a really lovely clean hotel.
We would definitely recommend a stay here and will definitely return. Thank you everyone for making our stay so pleasant. :-)
