Living so close I've never had any reason to stay here but looking at some of the online comments I found I think that might be to my advantage. The White Hart is housed within a delightful building directly opposite the similarly imposing Crown Court. You will soon know whether you've wandered into the wrong place - the sound of a cast iron cell door slamming behind you is generally a dead giveaway. The Hart has been a Lewes landmark for many years - since the 16th century to be exact - but rumours would suggest that the centuries have left it needing a little love and attention. When I last dined there (many years back) it was very traditional and redolent of the roast beef of Old England. The hotel has opened an health spa and swimming pool but do note that the club is a shared facility also open to paying members of the public. To be honest you need to explore this one further...'expensive for what it is' might be fair comment considering it's Tripadvisor rating at the beginning of 2014 has it marked at a lowly 5th out of 6 hotels in Lewes. That being said it is a unbeatable venue if you can get in on 5th November. If you're a guest you might be able to reserve a balcony view of the extraordinary Lewes Bonfire Night celebrations. Be warned though; the last time I checked, the waiting list for that ran into years!

Directions: On the High Street opposite the Law Courts.
