Fabulous location even though we are not golfers. We arrived very early having travelled from Gatwick and were greeted by a most helpful receptionist who, while unable to give us a room so early in the morning, organised a pot of fresh coffee while we relaxed in the lounge. The helpfulness and smiles continued throughout our stay and I would highly recommend this hotel for any who wish to have a quiet, relaxing break.

We stayed at The Blacksmiths Arms recently and were very impressed by the hospitality. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. A light lunch in the bar was delicious and I can honestly say that the cooked breakfast was of epic proportions and one of the best I have ever enjoyed.
Our room was clean, well furnished and pleasant although it did face onto a busy road. The bathroom was very spacious I would thoroughly recommend The Blacksmiths Arms to anyone and it is perfect for Glyndebourne, only 10/15 minutes by taxi.
We 4 people stayed one night in 2 deluxe double rooms which were spacious, clean and comfortable. The rate included breakfast which had loads of things to choose from the menu. We would certainly stay there again if we needed a hotel in the area.
I knew the hotel from 20 years ago. It was still wonderful. The staff were fantastic. A Scottish lady served us at the bar, she was attentive, welcoming, funny and just what we needed. The room was gorgeous, the sloping floors, the fires, the wooden panelling all stunning. Just marvelous!

There was a very noisy water system in the eaves of the room which woke us up at 6.30am when the host had to get up. This was a rare night away from small children, so we were desperately needing and looking forward to a long overdue lie in to recharge our batteries. This, to us, was one of the main benefits of the night away, so it was hugely disappointing not to be able to have a couple of extra hours sleep. This had a big impact on our whole weekend and it was further disappointing when there seemed to be a lack of understanding when the issue was regrettably raised. He did apologise but it was followed with the fact that it was the cheapest of the 3 rooms they had, the water system had to go somewhere and that was the time he had to get up. It was also pointed out that he hadn't had other complaints. Unless other guests were very heavy sleepers I find it hard to believe they wouldn't have been woken up. Maybe they could get back to sleep quicker, so it bothered them less, but it takes me a long time to get back to sleep and each time before I could, it would go off again. I don't think the price of the room should mean that we should expect to be woken up early, so don't feel that is a justification. If we were expecting to be woken up that early we wouldn't have booked at all. Such a shame, as the rest of the place was to a very high standard and a thoroughly lovely, peaceful, relaxing setting. It was lovely to be in the countryside with the cat, dogs and chickens.
