We visited for the 2nd time and used Crossways as a base to explore the area, visiting the De La Warr Pavillion, Bexhill on Sea.

On arrival David made us very welcome on our return. The food continues to be superb.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will look to stay again.

Communications from Crossways were very good and we were informed in advance that the restaurant was fully booked on the night we stayed, which was a nice touch so that we could make alternative arrangements.

"The A 27 can be busy. This is largely offset by the secondary glazing. You may want to select a room at the side or rear."
"Balcony is nice if you don't mind the race track sound effects of the A27"
"one with a balcony"
"in summer ask for a room at the back to minimise road noise"
"All rooms are excellent, those overlooking the garden are best."
