This Hotel is located on a main road, but in saying that, we didn't have any bother from noise. We were here on a weekend and the Village seemed fairly quiet. There was a Wedding party at the Hotel, but that didn't bother us either.
The Hotel is 17th century, and to reach our room on the 1st floor, we had to climb a very narrow staircase, and walk through an extremely long passage which had a few door's to be opened along the way.
The room was small, clean and basic, and it had a huge, modern bathroom. Tea & coffee making facilities were included, as was Breakfast, but we didn't stay for that, as it wasn't available until 10am! The Hotel was alright for a 1night stay.
There wasn't a car park, so we had to park our Car out the front of the Hotel in the street.
The Corn Exchange cafe serves a modern bistro menu, light snacks and delicious breakfasts. The bar offers real ales and features a games area, and there is also nightclub. We had our Dinner here and the meal was huge [full plate] and good.
I had booked this Hotel via Booking.com.
We arrived in Herstmonceux and found the Inn quite easily. Outside impression's were good, it really looked lovely.
Inside and at reception, we were told they had overbooked and our room was unavailable. I was a little upset by this as I wanted to visit Herstmonceux Castle.
The receptionist was very nice, and said the Manager had booked us in at their other Hotel in Hailsham. She printed out a map for us and marked the route for us.
What we didn't know then, is that the Manager had made the room NO CHARGE because of the inconvenience, I certainly didn't expect this!
The Horseshoe Inn, looked full of character, and the meals looked pretty good too!
Perhaps another time!
