This place was so bad we checked out half an hour after arriving.

We only stayed that long because we were deciding where else to go. This is not a hotel, its a grotty and dingy pub with a few dated rooms upstairs. The room we were shown was right next to the crossroads of a main road with old windows that had no double glazing and were drafty and damp. The toilet down the hall which was shared with another room was so small you had to sit on the toilet before you could close the door and the shower next door was very mouldy and unappealing. The pub downstairs was smelly and grotty and I would not have eaten there if you had paid me. I cannot understand at all how this place gets any good reviews. This was the only reason we booked it, because from the information on and then reviews there we thought it looked like a nice clean country pub tucked away from the noise of Brighton. It is not what it looks like from the pictures. It certainly taught me to do a bit more homework before booking somewhere and definitely not to trust the reviews from just one website. Really hoping this review stops others from making the same mistake!!!
