Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Stuffiness is taboo’ at Lee and Katie Williams’s ‘superb’ restaurant-with-rooms. The fine Regency building has a prime position within the conservation area of this ‘busy’ historic market town; inside, Lee Williams’s cooking is ‘dazzling’. In the dining room, admire the impressive late Renaissance carved and gilded ceiling (‘worth a visit in its own right’), then take in the delights on your plate: ‘excellent’, imaginative modern dishes might include corn-fed coquelette, roast beetroot, salsify; pan-fried fillet of stone bass, langoustine and pea risotto. Up ‘steep’ stairs (no lift; help with luggage is offered), bedrooms are individually styled. Luxuriate in the grand suite, whose private balcony overlooks Arundel Castle, or, if travelling with friends or family, check in to the top-floor suite, with two bedrooms, a shared shower room and rooftop views. There’s plenty of diversion nearby to work off the hosts’ full English breakfast: browse the antique shops in town; hire a motor boat for a trip on the Arun; visit the castle (ancient seat of the dukes of Norfolk) and the Victorian Gothic cathedral.
