Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Top of its class’, this ‘wonderful’, well-run country house hotel and spa beneath the South Downs wins praise from guests who appreciate the ‘beautiful’, ‘well-maintained’ grounds and the ‘intimate’, ‘relaxed’ atmosphere within. ‘All the staff are excellent.’ The drawing room has fresh flowers and paintings. In the dining room, chef Callum Keir puts his own spin on the classics, using local meat, and seasonal vegetables. Typical dishes: pork belly and loin, pickled cauliflower florets, snow peas; lamb cutlet, shoulder and mini-shepherd’s pie, winter vegetables. In the main house, or in cottages in the grounds, sleep well in refined, amply furnished bedrooms decorated in pretty country house style (a sleek Apple TV is a nod to the modern day). Come morning, do justice to the full English breakfast, then work it off on the lawn tennis courts, in the open-air swimming pool (April to September), or on the putting green (croquet and bowls lawns) or six-hole golf course. Polo fans, take note: the hotel has a long history with the game; Cowdray Park is nearby. (Mary Woods, and others)
