Gorgeous place

Very clean. Everything walking distance. Behind and next to other properties but very private. Great decor and spacious enough for 2.

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay, perfect !!!

Everything you could wish for is in this property..... it's so well furnished & equiped yet its compact but with a spacious feel because so much thought has gone into it. All mod cons, excellent bathroom, lots of storage space, including places to hide suitcases away whilst staying there ( big pine chests ) comfy beds & seating.

I would recommend The Lodge without hesitation!

From after eight mints to dishwasher tablets...everything has been thought of.

It's so well insulated that we had to let some of the warmth escape through the roof light !!

There are many good restaurants in Hurstpeirepoint & nearby, it's a good base for exploring this part of Sussex & for those of us with a bus pass it's opposite the stop for the regular limited stop bus in Brighton!!!

So thank you Rod & Gerry we really enjoyed our stay, your property is so welcoming, clean & well maintained.

We really enjoyed meeting you both as you're such kind & welcoming people.

We'll be back.

Quaint cottage in a quaint village

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent five days at the lodge. It was centrally located to see all the sites. The lodge was clean, comfortable and had everything you could possible need. I highly recommend staying here.

Very new, clean, beautifully equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Every thing was well thought out in the lodge. Very clean and new. Kitchen well equipped and all good quality. Superb comfortable huge bed, had 2 great nights sleep.

A very private setting.

The only very small grumble 1. Noise from the wine bar a few doors away went on very late and was loud. 2. Parking: was in local car park and due to non clear signs ended getting a parking ticket.

Owner's Response: We are always concerned when guests are not fully satisfied with their stay, and take any comments very seriously. Indeed there is a very lovely small restaurant nearby and it is rare for them to have a private function. When that has happened, they do stop by mid-night. Also in our nearby village free car-park, there are very large clear signs marking out the time allotted to park. Two hours for short stay (soon to be changed to 4 hours) or twenty three hours for long stay. We provide Parking Discs for our guests to use. The signs show where they are needed in the short term areas. We will always allow parking on our private forecourt should any guest have a parking problem. The Lodge is situated behind our house in a quiet location. This pretty Sussex village offers small and local facilities, all nestled at the foot of the South Downs Way.

Very happy traveller

  • 5 of 5

I am just about to leave the lodge after 65 nights here. I have relocated for a new job and needed temporary accommodation.

As a frequent traveller who stays in horribly expensive hotels on business (that i would never pay for with my own money!), I am saddled with high expectations.

The lodge is quite simply one of the best places I have ever stayed in my 20 years of travelling.

Moving from a large home, I was worried about the lodges compact dimensions. I should never have been concerned. It has a lovely, stylish and spacious atmosphere that I have happily lived in for 2 months

Rod and Gerry, the owners are great hosts. Which for me means "invisible unless required". They are a lovely, hospitable, charming couple and nothing is too much for them.

The village is beautiful, there is free parking across the road and a little terrace. (3 or 4 great pubs, lots of shops, a cop-op for the essentials)

What makes it so special? Top notch decor, quality bedding, pillows, towels, a great shower, the list goes on.

In terms of Sussex and especially Brighton it offers exceptional value. Stay here rather than a bland "ikea" style apartment in Brighton.

I never bother to write reviews for anything, but feel The lodge deserves a fantastic review because quite simply it is......"fantastic"

Stay here. You won't be disappointed
