I have to say if our experience was anything to go by then the return after the holiday was not as good as the way from the hotel. My mobile phone had run out of charge on holiday and stupidly i had not taken a charger however I assumed we would be able to easily contact the taxi firm from Gatwick after collecting baggage. Unfortunately there were no public phones working at the airport and non of the other taxi firms who have "offices" within the airport building would help other than to charge £16+ for the lift to Effingham Park. None of the "booked" taxis would phone to base to get a taxi to come and pick us up. We were warned that it would have been a hours wait for a taxi, had we been able to phone for a car anyhow. We resolved the problem ourselves in the end but it was not easy and cost a lot more than the £11 it should have..
Huge room for the 4 or us. The pull-out sofa was not so comfortable for the children. There was a mix-up on the bill as we were invoiced for food and drinks we didn't have. However, the hotel staff were very good about reversing the charges and gave us the internet for free. Wifi was expensive (although it was eventually reversed as mentioned earlier). Most hotels have complimentary Wifi and is becoming the norm, so to have to pay for Wifi was somewhat disappointing. The room was beautiful in appearance and the property is both beautiful and unique.
2nd time I've stayed at the Old Thorns Manor, make sure you bring some gym wear and swimwear as the gym is awesome with a fabulous assortment of equipment and the pool/spa is fantastic! All staff were really professional/friendly!

Apart from our bathroom which was in need of attention to bring it up to the rest of the hotel we have no comments. The hotel thanked us for bringing this up and confirmed that our bathroom was already on the list for refurbishment in the very near future. We're looking forward to goimg back to see what they do.

IF you want a fairy tale - this your hotel.
Unbelievably beautiful, wonderful stuff, stunning room. I was upgraded to a special room with 4 poster bed. I had a secret room which let me on the wall of the castle.
Dinner to dream about. I have eaten in a lot Michelin stars restaurants - this one is better. Dream to come back!
Beautiful village next to the hotel.
Recommended to all if you can afford it.

We stayed at The Blacksmiths Arms recently and were very impressed by the hospitality. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. A light lunch in the bar was delicious and I can honestly say that the cooked breakfast was of epic proportions and one of the best I have ever enjoyed.
Our room was clean, well furnished and pleasant although it did face onto a busy road. The bathroom was very spacious I would thoroughly recommend The Blacksmiths Arms to anyone and it is perfect for Glyndebourne, only 10/15 minutes by taxi.
I booked a two night Stay at Cisswood House Hotel during a business trip to Horsham. Although my stay was short I was very well looked after and I could attend my business in Horsham refreshed and energised.
A very warm welcome awaits at Copper Beech; nothing is too much trouble for the owners who live next door with their family.
The room was clean, light and spacious and very quiet - the Queen sized bed was too comfortable to get out of in the morning.
