Good Hotel Guide Review

On the outskirts of a picturesque Sussex village stands this ‘handsome, extensively enlarged’ old farmhouse, run by ‘friendly, attentive staff’. ‘Clean, comfortable bedrooms’ can be ‘a bit small’ but nevertheless feel expansive, thanks to ‘splendid views of the ornamental gardens’. The outdoor spaces deserve exploration, with a meandering brook, a croquet lawn and a putting green. Terraces have ‘plenty of seating’. Mealtimes feature a ‘small but well-balanced menu’ of modern British dishes; puddings are ‘perfection on a plate’. ‘We enjoyed excellent light plates in the relaxing, quiet bar.’ Breakfast on ‘good traditional stuff’, in ‘enormous’ portions.

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
