The Legacy White Hart Hotel
Travel Blogs from Lewes
In the afternoon, Kyle had to go to camp, so we dropped him off at the weekend christian camp, there were tons of ten year old boys running around mental, and wee Holly packed a sad cause she was too young to stay over night. However after some pizza, loom banding, and going to see her daddy play in the pub seemed to cheer her up no end.
Still, after a busy day I am looking forward to bed.
... are as crazy for loom bands as everyone else, so we've been making bracelets for almost 3 days straight now. I even learned a new weaving technique! These seven year olds are way better than me.
The jet lag is still pretty strong though. When I said I was going to bed at 10 past six, the kids looked at me like I was messing with them. They were kind of surprised when I actually went to bed.
... the Rum Runner which tastes like rainbow paddlepop, Candy Pants which is a grown up slushpuppy and the Irish Disco Biscuit... a mouthwatering mix of baileys, creme de menthe, oreos and icecream!!!
The following weekend we headed to Brighton to meet up with our friends Gemma and Russell who had planned to take us to some very unique Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night celebrations. From Brighton we caught a train to Lewes, also known as the ...
Entry 4 of 4 from England:
After London, I was craving a bit of English countryside, so Dilip took me on a scenic drive southward. We stopped for lunch in Lewes, an old, old town with a castle built in 1066 by colleagues of William the Conqueror of Normandy the year he invented England (or something like that). The castle was really cute and old, and from the tower you could look out over the whole cute, old town with their cute, old rooftops ...
... 10am and already it was around swelteringly hot, and the previous day's wind had dropped to a gently warm breeze. We formed a vague plan of the day (stroll off the beaten track, spot of lunch, another gentle stroll somewhere else, early dinner, back to the hotel to pack, check out and then on to the airport to fly home) then headed back to the hotel to gather cameras, water and money before heading out.
The plan started off as expected. We headed up ...

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!
