    The staff tried to assist and were helpful

    The building is very tired and needs a major refurbishment and en suite bathrooms need better cleaning and modernisation.

    Lovely building, lovely hotel staff, excellent food.

    Little traffic noise for reason of beeing next of the road.

    Welcoming staff.

    We had booked the hotel because we were going to a party locally. The manager said that if we were coming back after 11 we would need a key as he was locking up. Also the night before he closed the bar at about 11. It seems odd to do that in a hotel of this size which describes itself as a hotel and not a little "b&b"!

    Pleasant staff and room, reasonable rates

    Suffers from being part of a hotel chain. Evening meals fairly mediocre, (tiny amount of limp salad, mountain of boring chips, lukewarm soup,, dry and boring vegetarian "Moroccan" meal). The Roebuck is situated in Ashdown Forest, one of the best walking areas in the South East of England, but virtually no information was to be found in the hotel on the subject. (We were informed by the Ashdown Forest authorities that the hotel refused to display information on the many walks in the area unless they were paid to do so!) On arrival, a notice board offering welcome from "Nick and his team", though we didn't see Nick until the third day. Immediate surroundings of hotel, quite busy road (a22),

    We were attending a wedding in a nearby village - so it was the perfect location to stay for a happy family event. Good breakfast on both mornings and we enjoyed our one evening meal. Staff were very obliging. There is a very large parking area and a lot of space to sit outside and for children to play in good weather.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Friendly welcome and service even though we arrived very late. Everything was spotlessly clean in the public spaces as well as in the bedroom. We did not eat in the evening, but the bar service was excellent and attentive. Breakfast was buffet style and ok with pleasant staff in attendance. Our overall impression was very good.

  • Group of friends

    Location from the station and local village is handy also not far to the Ashdown Forest

    THe bedrooms are very dated and had a very strong smell of detergent

  • Family with children

    Generally good all round

    I'm quite tall and the bed wasn't long enough for me, even though I paid for a superior room with a king bed

  • Couple

    situated in nice countryside. good breakfast and friendly restaurant and room cleaning staff. comfortable bed. good shower.

    unfriendly evening reception/bar manager. being next to a busy road. although the pub/restaurant is quite characterful the overall impression is a bit sort of 'motorway service-station'

  • Older travelers

    The staff were excellent! Tremendously helpful, pleasant, cheerful and courteous. The buffet-style breakfasts were fantastic; and really well cooked and attractively presented. The free wi-fi was also a boon for us as we had to keep frequent contact with several websites.

    This is not a criticism of the housekeeping staff (who are no doubt under great pressure) but the cleanliness of the room left something to be desired: stained carpets, dirty windows, etc. Our room would have benefitted from a heavy clean/redecorating.

  • Couple
    7.4

    The staff at breakfast were fantastic, really helpful and the service was speedy. The breakfast buffet was lovely, lots of choice and the food was nice and hot. Fantastic coffee and choice of juices. The outdoor area looked lovely with plenty of seating. Loved the general feel of the hotel. The price of the room was excellent too.

    The rooms were a litle bit shabby, could maybe do with refurbishment though this may bump the price of the room up. There was a wierd green liquid coming out of the light switch by the door- room 105.

  • Group of friends
    4.2

    The Roebuck was close to the Ashdown Hotel and was a cheaper option that what could stay in the night before my friends wedding.

    The Hallways smelt of poo and air freshener. The rooms needed a good clean.eg: door handle etc, you could feel the dirt on them. The Restaurant staff were rude and the meal we had in the restaurant wasn't worth the £22 we paid,

  • Older travelers

    The room was comfortable.

    No chance of early breakfast, which was included in the price so had to leave without eating. No refund for not having breakfast.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Follow up call from staff regarding our late arrival was excellent and very thoughtful

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The room was clan and the beds very comfortable. Excellent en-suite. The evening meal was excellent and there were 'specials' available. Breakfast was served early wich is a bonus if you are on an early start as we were, and was a full English with plenty of variety.

    The hotel is beginning to show signs of wear and tear and could do with a coat of paint.
