            staff pleasent and helpful good breakfast nice room

            when there is a wedding or function on there is no room in the bar to sit down

            The hotel was well placed for what I required.

            Lady upon entry was excellent, night staff had closed bar, had no idea of food or opening times and offered little help knowing there was a wedding party present.

            I have stayed at the Hickstead at least twice before this current trip.The hotel is very comfortable with all the amenities one associates with a good hotel. The rooms are a good size with everything one could want. The food is good. Car parking is easy, the location is quiet and peaceful, but close enough to the a23 to make travelling easy. The staff are EXCELLENT - very helpful, friendly and professional - cannot fault the service in all areas. I will return to the Hickstead on my next trip to Sussex. An excellent, proper hotel and I would strongly recommend it. Enjoyed my stay very much.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            A basic hotel offering average pub grub style food. Equivalent to a Travelodge.

            Charging higher prices than a Travelodge. We didn't appreciate being given a room very close to the noisy function room where a wedding was taking place. Why not put the many wedding guests in the rooms nearest the function?

            Was a guest at a wedding, all seemed to go very well

          • Older travelers

            The food at breakfast was ok but was not very hot & the plates were cold.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Stayed at Hickstead on a romantic break for wifes birthday, easy access from motorway m23/a23, excellent value for money, half board menu was very good. Roses, chocolates and Champagne supplied as promised. All in all a very good hotel.

            Room was typical hotel room, bland, but clean and functional.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Good food. Nice person at reception. Good parking. Good choice of morning biscuits.

            Dining room a little cramped, especially with children getting under foot. Needs a separate TV room - TV intrusive in 'lounge'. Get rid of the geese - very noisy in early hours of morning! Could have done with a lamp with which to read in bedroom. Duvet was a bit warm - had to undo the cover. The area outside to sit was bedevilled by people smoking.

            my wife & i thoroughly enjoyed our fried breakfast & our dinner.the staff made us feel really welcome.

            bed could have been more comfortable

            A very relaxing stay. The hotel has recently been redecorated and looks superb. This was the second time we have stayed here and fully intend to return.

          • Single
            6.6

            It offered the same levels of service and cleanliness as a Premier Inn...

            ...only at double the price

          • Single
            7.4

            English breakfasts, easy car parking, anonymity, nice sized room, good restaurant ie food and service, friendly staff

            No bath plug. Unable to get Radio 4. Wouldn't take my vouchers for the Financial Times.

          • Single
            10.0

            Service was excellent, food excellent. All round excellent!

            Everything was fine no complaints, for my personal opinion i would say modernise the doors for the rooms and corridors, the hotel reception/bar and rooms quite modern but the doors stood out to me as being slightly dated. Nothing really but like I said my personal opinion. I would assume that this would cost the hotel quite a lot of money to do also.
