What a treat staying in a B'nB that is 600 years old, this is a very quaint place with lovely clean rooms, be careful though of the low doorways and ceilings!! Breakfast is served in a lovely room overlooking the garden, there is a buffet and also you can order off the menu, it was delicious. Would highly recommend if you are in the area.

Charming old building but no service or help available. We had a two night stay. Our room was not cleaned and our bed not made, nor were clean towels provided. When we queried this we were given a sarcastic answer from the owner that we should have reported this! How could we when we only saw this on our arrival back to the room at 10 p.m. and no one was around. No apology from the owners. Due to the bad service we asked for a price adjustment from the owner, which he declined saying that we should have reported this earlier. We said that this may result in a bad review, his response being, "I don't care about that, I get plenty bad reviews" Suitcases had to be dragged up a narrow steep flight of stairs and no one to assist, in fact our friends had to leave their suitcase in their car and unpack from there. Extremely hot weather and we were told that there was no fan available. Our bathroom was dirty with remains of the previous person's toothpaste on the wall. The toilet seat was loose. Access to the shower so narrow that if you're slightly overweight, you will not get in.

Enjoyed a weekend here in April, close to Winchelsea and Rye beaches. Lovely staff. Only downside was the small car park when other guests parked inconsiderately. A staff member recommended The Queen's Head in Icklesham where we enjoyed dinner on both nights (dog friendly of course).

This is a lovely little guesthouse, full of charm and character. It’s not cheap, but perfect for a one off treat. We arrived around 7pm, and at first thought the place was closed. It was very quiet! We were greeted by a pleasant young lady who explained everything very efficiently. It’s a very cozy and homely place. It’s an old house, so probably not best suited for very elderly or infirm guests, or anyone with a disability. Our room was the cheapest at £95 for the night, but was perfectly pleasant. The bathroom / shower room had a very low ceiling height and very little room for manoeuvrability once inside. It was tiny! There’s a very cozy communal living room / snug which has a bar and an ‘honesty box’ for you to put money into. A lovely little touch.. Parking in the grounds of the house is free. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room, and with complimentary shortbread cookies. The breakfast was especially good. The lady serving was quite brilliant - friendly, charming, efficient and extremely obliging. We got the distinct impression that the owners have employed people to run the hotel for them. Not a bad thing in this case, as both staff members we dealt with were outstanding. If you’re looking for something a little different, quirky and quaint then this is the place for you if you can appreciate very low ceilings, very steep stairs, tiny doors, and not a straight wall in sight!

I suspect Strand House is a bit of a Marmite place. It is a beautiful Sussex house, but that means non- standard rooms and in our case, a minuscule shower room, which required negotiating round a chimney to get in. It was perhaps inevitable that one of us had a fall. Breakfast was good and plentiful and the bedroom well stocked with the essentials. Breakfast is served earlier at weekends than on weekdays. On the positive side there is parking and a pleasant garden and it is only a 10 minute walk to the beautiful town of Winchelsea. So if you like period and are willing to forgo some modern conveniences this is an option you should consider. If you have limited mobility or like a lot of personal space then this Is probably not for you.
