we were checking in late, just because we were passing by, but had an perfect room with three beds.
It had a nice atmosphere with small stairs and different views. It is near a road but that didn't buttered us at all. Perhaps if you stay longer it will.
The host was very friendly and the breakfast is certainly okay.

We had a lovely time recently in Sussex and this place was good as a base to explore the surrounding area. When we arrived the room was functional but looked a little tired, the shower very good. There was a faint smell of urine in the bathroom though as if it hadn't been cleaned properly. My husband felt it was as if the place was looked after by youngsters who perhaps weren't as meticulous with their cleaning as they could be. The hotel was advertising for more seasonal staff so perhaps they were short staffed. Breakfast was fine for what we needed but the cutlery and crockery were always slightly dirty, as if the dish washer is not functioning properly. Every morning we were hunting for bowls without bits stuck to them. The room also felt clean enough (apart from the bathroom smell) but like it didn't receive enough regular thorough cleans. The walls were paper thin and we did hear the amorous antics of a couple next door one night which our twelve year old also heard. Not the hotel's fault but it was annoying when they had set all the tv controls so the volume can only go so high so we couldn't drown it out. If you are hard of hearing you will not be able to hear the tv without a hearing aid.
For me it was a bit of a let down compared to what I was expecting but not enough to spoil the holiday. We enjoyed the breakfasts apart from the lack of cleanliness. We would not stay again though, we would rather pay a little more and find somewhere better. We did not eat at the hotel because we were worried about their hygiene standards and found The Robin Hood at Icklesham nearby has a fabulous play area for the children and the meals are outstanding. Booking is recommended though unless you are going to eat in the garden, it was fully booked inside when we went on Monday but we ate in the garden.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs room, don't expect a view.

Sadly our booked family room was not as expected. The room itself was as could be expected considering the price (beds ok, toilet not working). However it was not overlooking lovely hills but the ever busy road. As it was warm we opened the windows only to find all kitchen noises and the road noises floating in. The hotel itself was alright, it should be further from the road.. A little understaffed for a Saturday, the only staff visible did his best to cater our needs. Still we couldn't escape the thought he'd rather not had us visiting.
The hotel advertises as a wedding location, I would recommend it as such. For holidays I'd go elsewhere...

Room Tip: Ask for a hillside room!

Our stay at the Lodge has been wonderful. It is set in beautiful peaceful countryside with sheep and rabbits in the fields next to it and we particularly enjoyed watching the sun go down over the hills each evening. We kept the window open to get plenty of country air. The room was simple but well appointed with free wifi and a great powerful shower. The food is good, particularly the Sunday carvery and all desserts are home made and delicious. The staff are very friendly and helpful and we found nothing to fault at all. The room rate is extremely good value for money. The Lodge is perfectly situated for many attractions including beautiful Rye, the exceptional Camber Sands beach, Winchelsea Beach, Hastings Country Park (a real gem), Battle and Hastings itself. I would wholeheartedly recommend and we will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Go for an upstairs room if you can.
