"Tired, cold rooms"
We had booked two rooms, both of which were very cold. We had to ask that one of our party changed rooms as the temperature was so cold. The shower in our bathroom was very grimy and the wallpaper had been stripped away in places showing several other colours underneath. The windows in the bedroom were also grimy and the carpet was dirty. There was an animal hair on one of the plates on which the (good) English breakfast was served, and hairs in one of the shower cubicles. We would not go back. Read less

The staff were very friendly although flustered, and did their very best to accommodate our requests. Breakfast was plentiful and good.

"Beware of Olde Worlde Quirky Shaped Buildings"
Limited room in the roof space given over to guest rooms.
We stayed in the room with the 4 poster bed in it,
that took up most of the space and was just a framework with no dressing. The bed was comfortable but there was a constant noise overnight from the extractor fans in the kitchens.
Ceilings low and slanting in nature reduced headroom considerably.
Bathroom very restricting and you need to mind you head getting in and out of the bath. There is no shower.
Hand held shower useless. Read less
Likes:
The food was fine and Battle itself is ok. Great Italian restaurant. The Abbey is worth looking around.

The Abbey Hotel offers stylish and comfortable bed & breakfast accommodation, as well as locally brewed ales, and a delicious menu to suit all tastes! A welcoming bar and restaurant awaits, a spacious beer garden with views across the magnificent Sussex countryside which incorporates a heated smoker’s area and a sun terrace overlooking Battle Abbey.

The attractive town of Battle gets it name from the Battle of Hastings, which was fought between Harold the Saxon king and William the Conqueror in 1066. The battle was so significant it changed the course of English history. The town grew up around the Abbey of St Martin which was built by William the Conqueror after the battle. It is said that William vowed that should he win the battle he would build such an abbey. The abbey was built between 1070 and 1094, and the high altar is believed to have been placed on the spot where Harold fell. Today the Abbey ruins and the battlefield are cared for by English Heritage and are well worth a visit. The imposing Abbey gatehouse built circa 1338 can be seen as you look down the length of the High Street.

Battle has some notable Georgian buildings along its High Street. The cottages and houses near the Abbey date from around 1700. The parish church of St Mary was built in Norman times and for the most part is 12th century in construction. It offers the visitor rare 14th century wall paintings and a Norman font amongst other things. At the Northern end of the High Street can be found the Almonry which was built in 1090 and now houses the Town Council and the Battle Museum of Local History.

The town of Battle was gradually built around the Abbey, and later developed a reputation for the quality of the gunpowder produced in the area. In the mid 1700s, the town supported five watchmakers in the High Street. Today, Battle is known as a tourist destination.
