Good Hotel Guide Review

The day is one long round of pleasure at this ‘luxurious but unstuffy’ Edwardian country house beneath the South Downs, where classic lawn sports and garden games make jolly the ‘gorgeous, well-maintained’ grounds. Lawn tennis, croquet, bowls and golf are on offer; there are heated swimming pools indoors and out, plus a sleek spa for the weary of limb. Sixty years after Michael and Ioné O’Brien first opened their house to paying guests, the hotel retains a ‘home-away-from-home’ feel – ‘intimate and relaxed’, yet just right for celebrations and special occasions, a trusted Guide reader says this year. Bedrooms in the main house and in cottages in the grounds are prettily, traditionally styled, with ‘a fabulous bed’ and views over the lawn. After cucumber sandwiches at afternoon tea, country-house dinners suit the surrounds: chef Callum Keir’s ‘first-class’ modern dishes might include chard and tomato chutney tart, rarebit; beef Wellington, shimeji mushrooms, celeriac. And if you hear murmurs of ‘hired assassins’ from fellow diners, never fear – that’s just polo talk among the players from nearby Cowdray Park. (Mary Woods, and others)

Guest comments

'Interesting building. Staff were very helpful. They made our bed with super sheets and beautiful blankets and removed the duvet. Comfortable bed. Good bathroom. Very good dinner. Grounds of a sporty nature, all immaculate. . ' - John Barnes - September, 2017
'Spa D,B&B package. Heaven. A small luxurious hotel, but not imposing or stuffy. A comfortable place to relax and enjoy its wonderful facilities and fabulous views. We had room two, overlooking the croquet lawn one way and the south downs the other. Large, with a lovely bathroom and a fabulous bed. Spa and indoor/outdoor pools were spotless. Lovely garden. The food very good (although dinner was served on cold plates). Breakfast, with local produce, outstanding. ' - Valerie Durkan - July, 2016
'Very pretty and wel maintained, and very quiet. Small enough to feel intimate, but with plenty to do. Everyone very kind. Our room was lovely: large windows on two sides; very nice bathroom. Dinner good but not excellent. Lavish breakfast. Spa newly done and very luxurious. Good walking on the doorstep - we thought they might have provided a walkers' guide. ' - A T - July, 2012
'Staff are courteous. The food and beverage manager is outstanding. The food is excellent. Beef dish the best we have had; delicious pudding. Furnishings of the public rooms of the highest standard, comfortable and tasteful. ' - Mary Woods - June, 2012
