The Blackboys Inn Accomodation - Lewes

The Blackboys is a 14th-century coaching Inn with a reputation for excellent dining. Q Builds won a competitive tender to convert a function room into five individual high spec hotel rooms, combining the pub’s heritage with modern standards of comfort and luxury.

The build was complex and involved adding a new build extension to an old single-story outbuilding which itself needed considerable renovation. A sprocket roof was required to ensure the new and old parts of the building were in perfect harmony. A timber veranda to the front of the building helped blend new and old sections seamlessly.

Five individual suites were created with a downstairs bathroom and living room, mezzanine bedroom and private terrace. New mains water, sewerage, and gas supplies were needed to service the accommodation and dedicated utility area and work had to be completed without disrupting the pub’s daily trade.

Despite flood conditions, through the winter months, the rooms were opened in time for Easter 2016. Great care was taken to achieve the quality finish that Harvey’s desired.

The rooms consistently achieve 4 and 5-star ratings on Trip Advisor.

"QBuilds are now one of Harvey’s preferred contractors having delivered to time and on budget on two major projects at the Blackboys Inn and the Red Lion pubs..."
