Good Hotel Guide Review
‘The enthusiastic welcome immediately made us feel at home again.’ In a pretty coastal village near Chichester harbour, the Wild family’s traditional red brick hotel has grown from three 17th-century workmen’s cottages. Some guests may find it old-fashioned, and a room in the modern extension was disliked, but regular visitors over many years praise its ‘high standards and immaculate upkeep’. A ‘nice, cosy atmosphere’ is retained thanks to its many long-serving staff members. Rooms vary in size and decor, but all greet visitors with biscuits, bathrobes and fresh milk in the fridge. Many of the newly refurbished rooms have patio doors on to the lawn, or look across the gardens where, in clement weather, there are tables for afternoon tea. On colder days, the ‘very comfortable’ lounge provides a refuge from the elements, and a good place to relax before supper in Marwick’s brasserie or Neil Hiskey’s modern restaurant. ‘We had blue cheese soufflé followed by Thai prawn curry. Both were superb.’ Breakfast is a ‘treat’. ‘We wouldn’t stay anywhere else when we’re theatre-hopping in Chichester.’ (Brian and Gwen Thomas, and others)
