After booking into accommodation for four nights we discovered it was unsuitable. At a busy time we tried to find other places on the internet and in Eastbourne all was unsuccessful. heading out of Eastbourne we were stuck in traffic caused by cones on miles of roads for repair of a very short section. No activity was taking place, just...

I recently stayed here as I needed to find a hotel close to Drusillas Park. On arrival I was welcomed warmly by the host David. It was so nice to be welcomed after almost travelling four hours that day. The location is perfect. As soon as I arrived I felt I was able to relax. The room was by far...

Lovely overnight stay at Crossways Hotel. We have eaten here a few times and it is always a pleasure and never disappoints. Super breakfast too. The hotel has a lovely, warm energy. Hosts are friendly and helpful, always. Hope to return again. As my husband says "Crossways is an experience" (definitely one to repeat). Thank you!

We had a very enjoyable stay for our anniversary. The food was excellent with an innovative menu in a very intimate and relaxed environment. The service was very friendly and attentive. Crossways is ideally situated for exploring the South Downs and nearby coast. Would highly recommend.

Very nice and typical English place, I immediately felt like at home which is particularly nice when you travel alone. David and his colleagues were very nice and warm welcoming.

Had a one night stay here because of work in Seaford. We had to make a late change to the booking because of illness but the guys at the hotel were fine. And understanding. Clean, tidy rooms, spacious too which is always a bonus, and polite service plus a lovely breakfast made it a great stay. Thanks!

Relaxed welcome made us all feel at home right away. We had a marvellous spring weekend and the house was surrounded by daffodils and blossom - what a delight to wake up to and then to have a huge breakfast spread with those gardens to look out on. Highly recommended for a really homely stay.

Thought I would stay at this hidden secret hotel on my own for the first time 😔; I was a little reluctant at first only to be told by David, owner, that they have many residents who stay on their own. I felt very comfortable and relaxed and had the most amazing evening meal, which is very usual for here....
