Good Hotel Guide Review

In ‘well-maintained ornamental gardens’, this ‘handsome hotel’ occupies an ‘extensively enlarged’ old farmhouse on the outskirts of a ‘delightful’ medieval village. It is run by ‘friendly, attentive staff’. The bedrooms are ‘clean and comfortable’, but spend your day in the ‘splendid outdoor spaces’ in fine weather: a brook meanders through the garden; there are terraces with ‘plenty of tables and seating’, a croquet lawn and putting area. ‘Inside and out, there are many secluded areas to enjoy some privacy.’ ‘High-quality’ modern British dishes from a ‘small but well-balanced menu’ are served at lunch and dinner. Leave room for pudding: a dark chocolate fondant with banana ice cream was thought ‘perfection on a plate’. ‘Enormous portions’ at breakfast.

Guest comments

'The bedroom was small but OK.. The bar serves excellent light plates in a relaxing and quiet environment. breakfast was good. ' - John Barnes - July, 2017
'A handsome old farmhouse, extensively modernised, in well-maintained ornamental gardens. Checking in and out was fast and friendly. A surprise was being asked to pay for the room on arrival, other charges payable upon departure. Background music featured Glen Miller. Junior staff were attentive and friendly; several minor difficulties regarding language. Our room was reasonably large, clean and comfortable but a little tired. The wardrobe contained captive hangers which I abhor. The en suite bathroom was rather narrow and the shower head above the bath was only suited for use by someone less than four feet tall. Dinner in the spacious restaurant (armchair seating comfortable but rather tight for an ample bottom) was delightful, tasty and interesting variations accompany the feature dishes. Breakfast was less good.; a relatively small but extremely well balanced menu included vegetarian options. The wine list was varied and service was excellent. ' - RG - February, 2016
'A comfortable and relaxing stay in a beautiful area of the South Downs. Staff were most helpful. The bedrooms are large, with lovely views, and prices were reasonable. Delicious food in an attractive dining room, and an excellent additional vegetarian menu. Plenty of space for relaxing, and our dogs were welcomed. ' - Simon Rodway - October, 2012
