    We spent a night at the Shelleys during the Glynbourne Opera Festival and had a lovely stay. The rooms are spacious and each room is individually decorated and makes you feel like you are in an old english mansion. The beds are sooo comfortable. The...More

    We appreciate this balanced review and for your feedback regarding breakfast; we are always looking for ways to enhance the service further Needless to say you were a delightful guest and we are very much looking forward to seeing you again, hopefully before Glyndebourne 2018

    Stayed last weekend (down in Lewes attending a local wedding). We were concerned as we had seen one or two poor reviews and found we could not raise the hotel by phone. But, in the event, we need not have worried - it turns out...More

    Loved our one night stay at this traditional hotel. Had a first class three course dinner which was cooked to perfection. Breakfast was superb. Room was great with free parking. Staff were incredibly helpful and it's very convenient for Glyndebourne. Would recommend.More

    Thank you much for this super review - needless to say the staff and especially Chef Harry are over the moon. The Shelleys aims to offer an individualised service and we were so glad your time with us hit all the right notes We are...More

    We went to this hotel as it is convenient for Glyndeboune and we're given a room with a large stain on the carpet, an unpleasant smell of sickness, lights not working and radiator stains on the carpet. Next morning there was no hot water and...More

    This review is clearly linked to the one preceding it and appears over-wrought. Of course we are disheartened when any guest leaves a less than positive review and it is clear you harbour various concerns Shelleys prides itself on providing an individualised service and please...More
