Good Hotel Guide Review

It may have lost its old store, but a pretty village on Goodwood’s doorstep has an excellent B&B instead presided over by new hosts, Amy and Matt Marshall.  Bedrooms have contemporary decor, a shower room, and are supplied with fresh milk, biscuits and chocolates. Some have a view across countryside as far as the Isle of Wight. ‘The beds were very comfortable, the en suite was modern and well-equipped,’ write trusted readers. And while their bedroom looked on to a ‘not particularly busy’ road, triple glazing screened out any noise. A Guide insider writes of a ‘powerful’ shower with lashings of hot water. New arrivals may be greeted by ‘a pleasant smell of baking’ and the offer of tea and cake in the small sitting room. Breakfast, in a ‘sun-filled’, street-facing room, brings ‘a nice buffet’, Sussex apple juice, organic eggs, local sausages, home-made bread and American-style pancakes. A walk up to Halnaker Windmill, through a magical tunnel of trees, is a must. (Hugh Allan, and others)
