“40th Birthday celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

We celebrated my wife's 40th birthday at the Brickwall with dinner with friends then stayed overnight at the hotel. The food was very good value at £30 for 3 courses and service was excellent (silver service).

The hotel room also was very good value with a super king bed and clean bathroom. Breakfast served in the main restaurant with cereals, toast and cooked breakfast included.

Highly recommended for a special event.

Lovely room, smart, clean and tidy with brilliant staff. The setting is perfect on the village green in beautiful Sussex. Very reasonably priced, too. Hard to pick a fault, would have liked better weather to test the pool. Hotel is dog friendly, too.

Only spent one night but I would certainly return here. Superb breakfast! Friendly staff and reasonable price too. Lost one star only as we were above the bar and because this place is wonderfully old it certainly isn't sound proof. All went quiet on the dot of 11pm though...Zzzzzzz

Room Tip: Not room 4 above the bar if possible, but I'm sure they will advise you in future.

Just spent five days at the Brickwall. The twin room en-suite was large, clean and well up to expectations, albeit the room looks as if its due for an update on the wall paper and interior designs, but that aside the room was great. The Breakfast and evening meals were to perfection and one little addition was the benefit of Gluten Free bread supplied for our friend for breakfast.. Not many hotels do that. All the staff have a smile on their faces at all times and are always very helpful. The owner and senior staff also are present to ensure your stay is an enjoyable one. The owner is mad on Golf so beware? The hotel is only a few miles from Hastings and a couple from Battle

Room Tip: Rooms in the new section are better. Don't have one in the main building over the kitchen as it...

We were looking for a hotel that was suitable for someone using a wheelchair, and Brickwall was listed on several sites specifically for 'Hotel with Disabled Facilities'. Brickwall also has a wheelchair symbol displayed. But it is really not physically suitable for a wheelchair. To get from the bedroom to the restaurant there are several steps, so we had to go outside, round the building, through a garden gate (sometimes locked), and through French windows (sometimes locked or blocked by tables). Having said that, the staff were lovely, helpful, friendly and courteous, and went out of their way to help get round the physical obstacles. So we managed. And very much enjoyed our stay, as the rooms were nice and the food was delicious. I would recommend it in general, but do not think it should be advertised as disabled-friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at this hotel. We were given a very good bed, breakfast and evening meal deal. The staff were a credit to the hotel, in particular the waiting staff who were very professional and friendly. The food was excellent.

We have been staying at the Brickwall once or twice a year for several years now and just returned from our latest stay which was fabulous. We experienced a 'night at the opera' along with our meal on Friday which was surprisingly fun and entertaining. The food is exquisite at the Brickwall,always beautifully cooked and served and using local meat,fish and vegetables.
The hotel is situated in a tiny quiet village within easy reach of the coast;Rye,Hastings,Eastbourne and the South Downs Way. Gardens and castles abound;Bodiam,Sissinghurst,Great Dixter to name a few!
Don't miss the organic vineyard up the road..free tasting and the Sedlescombe Regent is beautiful.
We feel the best rooms are in the main house, this time we stayed in Room 7 overlooking the village green and resident geese with four poster bed and panelled windows;a taste of times past.
Thank you..very much refreshed as usual
