There was a stunning view from the pub and beer garden and also from our room. The food and drink although not cheap was excellent and there was plenty of choice. Our room was clean and comfortable and perfect for our short stay. We would definitely stay again if visiting the area.

Lovely place, recommended.
Comfortable room, excellent and friendly service in the bar/restaurant and check in. Food was good, we had two dinners there, but the menu was a bit fussy, which limited rather than enhanced the choice. Food a little over priced too, even for West Sussex. Ambience of bar/dining area, and outside areas was excellent. This was my second visit.

Lighting inadequate. Not suitable for reading. Breakfast at 8.30 is to late, particularly when Goodwood Events are on. Carpet could do with a clean. Hot water very hot. There was no hot water at 6.00am, had to wait until 6.30. Other than above stay was enjoyable. Staff efficient and helpful

Restaurant views were amazing and staff very friendly. The bed in our room was very comfortable but other than that I was disappointed with the room for the price we paid. Shower mixer wasn’t working correctly. Toilet seat cracked. No wardrobe. Room was very dark due to only having a couple of small wall lights. The carpets would benefit from a good shampoo. We asked at the bar for a hair dryer and iron but we were told that there were no more hair dryers available. Thankfully another guest overheard and offered us his. Breakfast also started too late for us as we were hoping to be at an even for 9am but breakfast started 8:30. The hotel is in a great location if you’re visiting Goodwood and overall we enjoyed our stay I just think our room in particular was overpriced.

A shining beacon at the end of your journey.
This place was recommended by people we were going to see. We had an overnight stay. The staff were wonderful, food choice was varied and superbly cooked. Room was clean and provided everything that you would need. It was a very welcome place after a long and tiring journey. If ever we are down that way again we will certainly go there again.
