... and that she wouldn't get to Brighton until much later. But as we're looking for a seat, Laura is leaning out of the train waving her hand and smiling.
When we got to Brighton it was warm out and the sun was shining. It took us 40 minutes to walk to our hostel, which turned out to be really sketchy and everyone there was unfriendly and weird. After we checked in we took a walk back into town on the boardwalk and relaxed in the sun. ...
So this is where the journey begins....
Sat in the departure lounge waiting for a cheeky Wetherspoons breakfast in a lovely new place called the Red Lion. Thought I better have one last true English breakfast before I head off and have to face the appetising plane food.
Checked in instantly, bags were a little over however the lovely lady let me off and also adjusted my seats to ...
... the Southbank of London with its quaint shops, delicious markets, and one of the coolest skateparks I've ever seen. Today before we took a bus to Gatwick We strolled through Notting Hill so I could browse the famous antique market on Portobello Road. It was worth every minute of dragging my 30 pound backpack around. :) That's about it for now! On our way to Amsterdam so stay tuned, it's about to get ...
(This day somehow got deleted, so here is the updated version) Slow start, earning our keep at Jan and Brian's by doing some chores. We packed up Corsa and headed to the seaside. Brian had given us some great directions for parking so in no time at all we were in Brighton, parked down on the front, ready to walk to the famous Brighton pier. We did the complete tourist thing, walking through the arcade and all the buskers and carnies, right ...
... with many Tudor buildings in the town centre running down the hillside. It has the ruins of a substantial castle and down on the flat, the remains of a huge monastery complex that was apparently a major pilgrimage site right up to the time of Henry VII’s order for its Dissolution – and this one was virtually completely destroyed – there’s very little left, but there is a very good walk with explanatory panels as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Legacy White Hart Hotel Lewes
This hotel was recommended to me as a place to get a good nights sleep. Unfortunately, the close proximity to the high street and the morning beer delivery put paid to that.
The Bedroom was tacky and ill supplied with facilities. The restaurant was a joke, we dined in the Carvery restaurant, because there was a function in the conservatory we were continuously disturbed by the long queue waiting to be served at the carvery, the service was so slow that it took nearly an hour to get the food from the Carvery. The biscuits and cheese had wafer thin biscuits, one bite and they were gone. After I went with my boyfriend to the bar for a brandy, he had to wait while the barman went to find some brandy glasses, the barman returned and then disappeared again to find some brandy. On his next return with the brandy, he rinsed the measure with liquid from a squirt on the bar, then used the measure without wiping it clean. No, I advise people not to go to the White Hart in Lewes.
Great New Year
My Husband and I stayed at the White Hart in Lewis for 3 nights over New Year 05. We found the hotel to be very good value, excellent food good beer and wine and friendly helpful staff. The combination of 16th Century Inn combined with a leisure complex was very good. I will certainly be returning and recommending the Hotel to family and friends.
This hotel is an insult to Lewes
We have just completed a two night stay in this pox ridden hole.
I was describing our visit to my brother-in-law who then showed me the comments on this web site.
My experience concurs with every opinion expressed so far.
My only addition from the dirt and grime on the carpets, linen,poor food beer etc, is to add the fact that my wife and I had the unedifying site of a faeces/bloody finger print on the spare toilet roll in our bathroom.
Filthy and disgusting hovel
Have just returned from spending two nights in this fetid hotel. Was attending course at at nearby University and this hotel was listed on the programme. The web site makes the hotel look fantastic, but do not be deceived, this is the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in. I totally agree with all the negative reviews posted. The only good thing about this place is checking out of it. The carpet is disgusting as is the bathroom. The bed covers are rancid and I came home with a huge rash. Their restaurant serves the most bland and badly cooked food I have ever seen served.The owners should be ashamed and the local tourist board and environmental health department should do all in their powers to close this place. Please stay away!!!!
You want a thrill? Book a room here and have your wife break into tears when you walk in to your room. Bedspread was black...started out life as a white bedspread. Carpeting in the room...we decided to not remove our shoes so we would stay cleaner. Would have loved to make some tea but the cups were dirty. Room temperature on entry was about 90 degrees because the wind was from the wrong direction and not blowing into our window. Our portable DVD player we brought along had a bigger picture than the TV in the room. It really helped when staff told my wife that our three year old son was not allowed into the swimming pool past 6 PM since they rent out the health club area at night and only adults are allowed. Two nights of this pleasure palace cost us over $340.00 (took two days to make other arrangements).
Required a hotel in Lewes, as we were attending a family wedding in the area.
Stayed here for a wedding last summer. This was simply one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in - and definitely the worst for the price.
The rooms in the (seventies council-style block) to the rear were tired, cheap and tasteless. The ones in the more aesthetically pleasing main building may have been better, but we were all shocked at how bad it was.
Nice town shame about the hotel
Very expensive for what you get.
The whole place is tired. Room small and dated bathroom, you know the type, plastic fittings barely secured, tiny TV that is fine if you enjoy watching blizzards.Small uncomfortable bed, one of the pillow cases had not been changed and had already been used by someone else. Early morning call was requested but did not materialise.
At the door of the dining room I asked the waiter if the fish was on the menu tonight, he said he didn`t know, I would have to ask the chef!
The hotel`s publicity says it is a family owned business which provides great personal service. They need to work a lot harder. People on the reception desk were good however
Poor would not return
This hotel was very expensive. The room was dirty and in need of redecoration. My room overlooked a row of parked cars. The breakfast was also poor. Very disapointing.
I would recommend give this one a miss!
