My family and I stayed with Lesley and Ron under sad family circumstances, and they couldn't have been kinder or more helpful to us. We stayed in the Lilac room - which is the family room. It had comfy beds and an amazingly big bathroom with what must be the best shower in all of Europe! Plus the whole house...

We have been staying at Downs View for a number of years when visiting family in the area. The standards at Lesley and Ron's B&B have never changed, always 5*. We love staying here, it makes our long drive from Cornwall worthwhile. We always sleep well and eat well when we stay here, much better than some "posh" hotels we...

I would recommend anyone to stay at the Downs View B&B! The room (mine was the White Room) was spacious, spotless clean, the bathroom was big with a great walk in shower. Toiletteries were plenty including the mouth wash (great taste!). Although I was leaving earlier than the official brekafast hours, the owner Ron made everything ready so I could...

I stayed here with friends and I had the yellow room -a lovely bright cheery spacious room. A very comfortable, warm and cozy B&B. Breakfast was amazing, top quality and the full cooked breakfast filled the plate. ( not the half hearted affair you often get!) Would heartily recommend this friendly B&B

Like many travelers on here, we stayed for the night during our walk across the South Downs - what an awesome find. Lesley was just wonderful (and had obviously come across lots of bedraggled walkers before!) - as was her young niece who was helping on the day. Great facilities, including a full size hair dryer and as many tea...

Spotlessly clean, excellently maintained, friendly proprietors, very good breakfast, good packed lunch for walkers. Can't praise it highly enough. The location is good for walkers on the South Downs Way, and the village has a petrol station (next door) with a minimarket, pubs serving food, a newagent and a chemist.

Downs View was by far the best B&B we stayed in on our walk of the South Downs Way. Excellent standard of rooms, showers etc, excellent breakfast with many nice touches such as cakes and fresh fruit. The standard is far better than many mid range hotels I have stayed in and I wouldn't hesitate to come back here.

My two sisters and I stayed in the "Pink Room" and it was lovely. B & B is very conveniently located to downtown and the restaurants/pubs. Lesley and Ron were great and we couldn't believe the breakfast! Lesley makes everything herself from the flapjacks to the bread to the stewed plums. What a great send off to the trail (which...

Lesley and Ron are so nice. We walked from houghton down to upper beeding. Due to some miscalculations by our travel agency the distance was double as far as we have prepared for. My girlfriend got a huge blister. Ron helped us for the next day transport since she was able to walk the next day. Thanks again. Breakfast perfect...
