Fodor's Expert Review The Shelleys

High St., Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 1XS, England

The lounge and dining room in this 17th-century building are on the grand scale, furnished with antiques that set the tone for the rest of the lovely building. Rich fabrics and elegant wallpaper pair with antiques and well-chosen modern pieces in the guest rooms, which have comfortable beds. The garden is a joy. Check the website for special offers, including dinner, bed-and-breakfast packages, and stays that include a half-price rate on Sunday.
