    Friendly staff, food choice was reasonably priced. Breakfast was a good continental meal. Room was fine but if you are alight sleeper and an early to bed person don’t stay here. Pub music will keep you awake albeit only up to11pm.

    Cosy little gem!

    Superb stay in a cosy room at The Dorset. Friendly staff at check in, room as described and the continental breakfast was a great start to the day. Lovely range of local beers in the bar and a great menu. Look forward to returning!

    A brief stay at The Dorset

    The Dorset is a very good location for staying in the Lewes área. Facilities are good and the breakfast was adequate. Overnight parking in the public car park was free before 9am.We would have no hesitation in staying again.

    Homely feel and very welcoming.

    This is a really characterful place to stay. The receptionist very kindly offered to take my case to the room, which for somebody with mobility problems is always a big help. The staff are all really friendly and professional and welcoming. The room was clean and tidy with a working shower and the room was nicely heated with a window that could be opened. I also had a fabulous meal of fish and chips which was really tasty well seasoned and the fish was beautifully cooked and light, not at all dry. The pub had a really nice community spirit and had lots of personality. Although the continental breakfast is basic it is perfect for a working stay and is fresh and well presented and is ample as a cooked breakfast isnt what you might eat everyday while.on business. My only criticism which is minor is that the room could do with a chair as I need one for working on my laptop however, staff were happy to provide me one when i asked and brought it to my room. I will definately stay again.

    OK for a night but poor breakfast

    Bed was comfortable, WiFi worked well and the pub serves a couple of well kept real ales from Harveys. The breakfast was poor: only a limited choice of cereals, hard mass-produced croissants and individually wrapped mass-produced buns. No toast! The room was covid clean but at the expense of dusting other surfaces that would not be touched.
