Good Hotel Guide Review
Behind a ‘gorgeous, checkerboard red-brick-and-stone facade’, in a hamlet a mile from Goodwood and ‘an easy, breezy drive from Chichester’, the former village grocer’s shop is run as a friendly B&B. Guests are welcomed with tea and home-made cake in a small sitting room dominated by ‘a massive Victorian model train in a display case’. A room under the eaves was on the snug side, but the bed was ‘incredibly comfortable’. The bathroom had a ‘powerful and strong’ walk-in shower, aromatherapy toiletries from a local soap-maker. In the morning, a buffet is laid out in a sunny, dual-aspect breakfast room with a window on to the garden. Full marks for ‘really tasty apple juice’, ‘exceptionally good’ muesli, strong cafetière coffee. Cooked items include local, organic, free-range eggs, locally made sausages, pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, home-made bread and marmalade. Let them know if you have special dietary requirements: Heather came up trumps for a vegan reader. In sum: it’s not posh, it’s not perfect, but ‘an excellent bed, wonderful shower, great breakfast, accommodating, thoughtful hosts, all the things that make a stay worthwhile’.
