Pocket Guide: 2 stars Hotels in East Sussex

From picture-postcard countryside to iconic seafront scenes, the southern county of East Sussex promises the visitor a diverse range of attractions. Whether you're on the lookout for a thrilling adventure holiday, a cultural weekend in the city, or a peaceful rural retreat, the wide range of two star hotels in East Sussex can provide an answer that doesn't break the bank.

Lewes: the County Town

The county town of East Sussex may be small, but it's got a great deal to offer visitors. The picturesque high street boasts an array of period architecture, made up of independent shops, classy bars, private residences and - importantly - some great hotels.

Lewes Castle is undoubtedly the town's main attraction. Kept in good condition, the castle is as good a place as any to learn about the county's past. Those with little interest in history can just take in the fabulous panoramic views from the castle's turrets.

The Newmarket Inn offers affordable two star accommodation, conveniently located on the main road into Lewes. There's a good restaurant on the site, and easy access to Brighton town centre and the universities.

Brighton: a Lively, Bohemian Centre

Brighton is the biggest and most popular holiday destination in East Sussex, and it is also the most diverse, offering some form of entertainment to suit all budgets.

For younger visitors, one of the city's major draws is the lively evening scenes. From night clubs to live music venues, there's fun to be had every night of the week. Weekends are typically the busiest, but the week night drinks deals tend to lure out good number of students. Those seeking a quieter way to enjoy the city can wander the bohemian lanes, which are packed with independent shops and cafés.

Two star accommodation is easy to find across the city. From the friendly B&Bs such as Clifton House to the quirkily-themed boutique hotels such as the Hotel Pelirocco, visitors have plenty of choice.

Eastbourne: a Touch of Elegance

Brighton may top the charts when it comes to entertainment, but if you're looking to sample the quintessential elegance of a Sussex seaside town, you're probably better off in nearby Eastbourne.

Eastbourne seafront is home to some of the most exquisite hotels in East Sussex, and not all of them come with top-end price tags. The Afton Hotel occupies a stunning Regency building. There's free WiFi, a meeting room, and even an on-site restaurant. All of the town's attractions are also within easy reach.

A Rural Getaway

East Sussex may be blessed with a good number of lively and historic towns, but it's the natural beauty of the county which attracts some visitors. The Sussex Downs National Park provide ample opportunity for picturesque walks, and the occasional National Trust property and quaint village pub provides the perfect supplement for those off days.

Highlights in terms of rural attractions include The Bluebell Railway - a steam train line running from East Grinstead to Sheffield Park - and Ashdown Forest, which features its very own Llama Park. Of course, there are plenty of excellent rural hotels and guesthouses to house you during your stay.
