Old coaching inn with later additions now all in need of some tactful refurbishment. Staff pleasant and helpful. Breakfast very basic.

Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
the White Hart Hotel looks lovely from the outside. it is perfectly located because it is right in the centre of Lewes and close to the train station. in terms of the inside - the interior is sad and very run down. the reception is weirdly modern compared to the rest of the hotel and looks completely out of character. our room was a good size but very dated. thankfully the bedding was clean. the ensuite had a ridiculously oversized corner bath which meant you had to squeeze past it to get to the toilet. thankfully, again there was hot water and heating. we left before the 'continental' breakfast. this hotel could be fabulous if only the owners could be bothered doing anything to improve it. it just feels very unloved - what a shame!
