Convenient situation.Posted Jun 23, 2016
Pros: The staff are very friendly and we enjoyed the breakfast. Good local beer. A nice old English feel in the bar.
Cons: The decor in general. The place has a run-down feel about it.
Location: Well situated to visit Chartwell and Battle. Lewes is a lovely old town with a castle and the coast is not far away.
We were visiting friends in the area so it suited us fine. The inn is in need of a bit of TLC and our room (number 7) was unbelievably cramped. It did have a very nice on-suite but there was no door separating it from the room, just a wall between the bed and the shower etc., which was not ideal. We would probably use the Hotel again, but not in that room.

Black Lion HotetPosted May 18, 2016 on Hotels
Not a bad place - undergoing refurbishment in some areas at the moment ideally situated for Brighton and surrounding areas. Unfortunately I could not get a VAT receipt so I won't be able to stay there again as my stay was for business

nice hotel, close to brightonPosted May 14, 2016
The Black Lion is a great family run pub, the owners are extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. The en-suite rooms are lovely & clean and the bed is very comfortable. There is a good selection of drinks, great food and a cool games room with 2/3 pool tables. Lewes train station is a 15 minute drive away with trains running every 10 minutes to Brighton. We will deffintely be staying here again when we're in the area.

Cheap and cheerfulPosted Feb 23, 2016 on Hotels
The Hotel was OK, the hosts were very attentive, they had only been in the hotel for a matter of days and had obviously taken on a lot. The beer was OK as was the food but the general condition of the hotel was run down, the hosts stated this will be addressed in the near future.

Nice breakPosted Feb 17, 2016 on Hotels
Received a very warm welcome from the new owners. Although the hotel is on a main road it seemed peaceful. Some of the communal floorboards are a bit creaky and the mattress has probably seen better days, overall though good value for money, friendly helpful and nice food. I would stay again in the future as I believe the new owners will make this an even nicer Pub/Hotel. My dog was made to feel very welcome.
