December 2010 -
Exclusive use for family Christmas
whole family and my sister's whole family have always spent Christmas
together and despite the death of our father earlier this year we were
determined to still have a family Christmas together. We were looking for a
small family run hotel that would look after us superbly (including
my sister's dog!) and could be exclusively for our use. We were delighted to
find the The Olde Forge Hotel and booked in for 4 nights over
Christmas. The food and hospitality provided couldn't be faulted and nothing
seemed too much trouble to either Philip or Nicky. It was bitterly
cold this winter but the warm log fires in both the cosy bar area and in the
dining room made the whole place wonderfully welcoming and relaxing.
thank you to Philip and Nicky for making our first Christmas without our
father such a lovely time.
July 2011 - Exclusive Use for a wedding party
My niece booked the whole hotel for family to stay for 2 nights as she
was getting married in Herstmonceux Castle nearby. On the Friday night we
had a private family dinner in the restaurant at the Olde Forge and the food
was really, really good. I had the rack of lamb and it was cooked to
Everyone's food looked great and there were very few scraps going back to
the kitchen. The owner/ Hosts Nicky & Philip treat you like its their
home and you feel very welcome. Those who stayed said the rooms were clean
and very comfortable. We would certainly recommend this establishment.
Thank you for making our weekend so special.
August 2011 - Exclusive Use for a family stay
We, as a family, greatly enjoyed our stay and the fact that we had
exclusive use of the hotel was an added bonus. We had not expected that.
You not only made us very welcome and comfortable, you were a great host
and hostess. Our meal on the Friday evening was superlative and we are
only now recovering from all those huge and delicious breakfasts.
Lovely location, excellent service, fantastic
food, very friendly and relaxed atmosphere and just perfect for our family
break. We had exclusive use of the hotel which was even better. Overall,
it was really very good value for money. The restaurant menu was really
good and the quality of food was consistently high and much nicer than in
most restaurants I've been to. The family who run the hotel are very
friendly and willing to provide recommendations and advice about the local
area. The hotel is well-placed for access to Eastbourne and for many
beautiful villages nearby, as well as Herstmonceux Castle. We'd certainly
go again... Thank you for helping to make our visit such great fun.
