Comfortable Hotel

Posted 14-Sep-2014
Pros: It's appearance and situation and the friendly, polite staff.
Cons: The horrible sliding door to the ensuite!!
Location: There's a bus stop opposite the hotel which will take you to Brighton (and probably other places, but that's what my brother and I did).
Like other reviewers, I could nip pick on minor details about our overall stay in this hotel, but I won't as afterall, this is a what I call a rural hotel and the Hilton! My main gripe was the sliding door to the en suite bathroom. In my opinion this should be a proper door (as there is room to fit one that opens normally), and a light switch/pull actually in the en suite and not a sensor that turns the light on as soon as you pass the threshold which bathes the bedroom in bright light in the middle of the night! I was sharing my room with my brother and neither of us were particulary keen on the gap around the door when it was closed either. Apart from that, the beds were comfy, plenty of room in the wardrobe, the staff were polite and helpful. We only had dinner once on the first night in the hotel but it was very nice as were the breakfasts.

Lovely old hotel in superb area

Posted 22-Aug-2014
Pros: everything
Cons: as above
Everything clean and tidy,only one little moan.Having had steaks the previous two nights we decided to have pasta dishes and we did not think they were quite up to scratch.my pasta was nearly cold by the time I finished.I am sure it would have been ok if the large dishes had been warmed first.Also having lived in Italy I know that the longer you simmer tomato sauce the smoother and more subtle it becomes.Sorry to moan but I hope my views are constructive.

lovely hotel

Posted 13-Jun-2014
Pros: trip adviser
Cons: not impressed with bathroom across the hall,
Location: great location loads of circular walks, close to Shoreham and the coast, lots to see and do,
we stayed for 2 nights in a lovely big room, only negative was we had to cross the landing to our bathroom! taps were broken on the bath and literally came off in your hand, apart from that a nice clean hotel with good food reasonably priced, friendly helpful staff, in a great village, would go back and would recommend,

Room really small

Posted 08-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
We were looking forward to staying here as the hotel is in a pretty village. The room was up several sets of stairs right at the back of the hotel which was difficult to get to carrying heavy cases. The room was also very small, to get round the bed at the bottom you had to go sideways! The shower was in the room so we had to take it in turns going in the toilet while the other showered. There was no pressure to the shower even though the water was quite hot, plus there was a hole under the carpet right in front of the shower. The toilet... Well it was in a very small cupboard and had a fan which came on as soon as the door was opened. The bed was a good size, clean and comfortable, and there was tea and coffee and a kettle. For most of the night there was a noise above our room which sounded like water running. Breakfast was cooked to order and was plentiful. Would we recommend to others, probably not unless you're newlyweds who want to watch each other shower !

Monday night is Thai night, which is obviously popular locally, and was delicious.

Beautiful location, great off street parking

Posted 08-Apr-2014
Creaky floorboards, paper thin walls and our bathroom was across the hallway instead of ensuite. The king bed was 2 singles pushed together. Good sky tv in the room. Great access to free wifi, definitely needed in this location.
