If this is it's worst....

by Unevenshifty on 18 Jan 2017 (Solo Traveller)

Nowhere in England is going to look it's best in January, and if this is the worst that Shelleys gets, then it's probably the best Lewes has to offer! Despite the usual drisley and cold weather, Shelleys offered a warm and pleasant haven. I only took advantage of the room, as I am not an early riser so missed out on breakfast, and was visiting friends, so ate with them in the evening.

The Shelleys

Very hospitable and responsive staff. No fuss. Excellent restaurant. I felt totally relaxed here. Staff accommodated my early departures for work in the mornings by arriving early to prepare my breakfast. Waiter even provided me with washed fruit to take with me for lunch. and Evening meal was excellent. Thank you so much.

Loved this place

The marketing information says its a country house in town. It really is. It has the feel of a classic country house hotel yet is on the High Street in Lewes. The welcome was warm and the room we had was spacious and comfortable. All the staff we came in contact with were friendly and efficient. The breakfast was excellent and out dinner was also very good.

Needs an up grade

The best hotel with character, our 3rd time stay, but after 5 years some part of the hotel are falling apart, in December the 2 rooms , we were the only occupants, lovely rooms we great atmosphere , but when you look at details the window paint was peeling cracks all over the ceiling and walls , however the beds were very comfortable, friendly staff , breakfast was average, with some money spent the hotel will be fantastic

Superb Staff and a Brilliant Breakfast

by FHall72 on 05 Dec 2016 (Business Traveller)

A really grand and impressive facade complimented with beautiful gardens. We were greeted by a charming receptionist named Jackie who made our stay utterly delightful. The interior of the hotel is beautiful however a little modernisation I feel would be warmly welcomed. The bed was comfortable and breakfast equally pleasurable. Lewes is a quaint little town and perfect setting for the hotel. Overall a thoroughly pleasurable stay.
