Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Opposite the walls of the castle in this ancient market town’, Lee and Katie Williams run their Regency town house as ‘a top-notch, great-value’ restaurant-with-rooms. You might step straight off the street into the restaurant, where our inspectors marvelled at the ‘ornate walnut, carved and gilded, 16th-century Florentine ceiling, worthy of a visit in its own right’ (and ‘probably worth more than the entire building’, they hazard). An alternative side entrance and steep stairs lead to ‘clean, comfortable’ bedrooms. Bay has a four-poster, a balcony and views of the castle walls. A rear-facing room was ‘well appointed’, with generous storage, real clothes hangers, a ‘clean, modern bathroom’. The bed, just shy of six feet, ‘could have been longer – our only real niggle’. The dinner menu, too, is ‘relatively short’, but ‘well thought out’. After a complimentary glass of champagne, ‘delicious’ home-baked focaccia arrived, orders were taken. Pigeon on a bed of macaroni cheese, and scallops with seasonal baby vegetables, were among dishes ‘of good size, cooked to perfection’. Service by Lee Williams and his son, Harry, was ‘attentive and friendly’. ‘There’s no better location from which to explore Arundel.’
