Good Hotel Guide Review
The ‘beautiful gardens’, ‘wonderful atmosphere’ and ‘pleasant rooms’ were highlighted by guests this year, who praised this ‘delightful’ B&B, ‘very convenient for Glyndebourne and the coast’. The hosts, Rowena and Barry Gittoes, ‘always make things easy for everybody’. Their Grade II listed Georgian former rectory, in three acres of gardens with rural views towards the South Downs, has tidy public spaces brimming with interesting prints, and cosy nooks. Well-appointed bedrooms have ‘real coffee’, Fairtrade teas; a DVD library; two have an antique four-poster. Leisurely breakfast, taken in the bedroom or in the spacious dining room, has fresh fruit, cereals, honey from local bees; smoked salmon from Hastings, local meats, herbs from the garden: ‘Delicious.’ Picnic hampers can be arranged.
