Good Hotel Guide Review
Perennial visitors reported ‘a warm welcome’ from Clive James and David Stott at their restaurant-with-rooms – ‘a cherished institution to many Glyndebourne regulars’ – at the foot of the South Downs. Fans return for the hosts’ ‘attention to simple things, like chilling our bottle of wine before we set off for the opera, and their easy (but never intrusive) conversation. It’s a cheerful, meticulously informal place.’ Individually styled bedrooms, ‘clean, comfortable’, are supplied with ‘well-judged details’: fresh milk in the fridge; earplugs to buffer the ‘discreet hum’ from the nearby road. Each has a new bathroom. In the intimate dining room, local meat and game feature in David Stott’s ‘seasonal, generous dinners’, as well as ‘nightly-changing, locally landed fish’ from Hastings. Breakfast is ‘generous and freshly cooked, though the coffee probably wouldn’t keep you awake for long (our only gripe)’. Glyndebourne-goers are well catered for, ‘even at short notice’, thanks to the hosts’ ‘finely tuned awareness of the timetable of an evening at the opera’. If opera is off the cards, perhaps a wander in the ‘enticing’ gardens. ‘Excellent value overall.’ (Richard Parish, and others)
