We had a charming Sunday night stay in Arundel at St. Mary's Gate Inn. We booked a recently refurbished room via Laterooms.com and thoroughly recommend. The room was comfortable, spacious, clean, well appointed, and quiet. The staff were friendly and genuine throughout our stay. The food was well cooked, plentiful and great value - my partner is vegetarian and vegetarian... More

We were visiting Arundel with friends and was looking for a cosy pub for a late lunch. We found one in the St Mary's Gate. It was worth the walk up the hill we were greeted by friendly staff and the pub dog. We were 2 families and a dog and was all welcome. The menu was small but plentiful... More

Stayed here on 31/01/15 and was pleasantly surprised. Good facilities. Lots of tea/coffee in room. Lots of toiletries in the bathroom/shower room. Hairdryer in room. Large room also with your own entrance with secure parking outside room. We chose B&B and the breakfast was really good - a little slow but excellent quality. The staff are very laid back and...

We decided to take a trip to Arundel for our anniversary on the recommndation of friends. We wanted to stay somewhere reasonably priced and prefer pubs to Hotels. Because of the time of year we visited we were upgraded without charge to a four poster suite (Room 7). The room's decor was a little dated but the ensuite bathroom was... More

Wrote to the manager several times with the following complaints about our stay in December and had no response at all. Therefore I would advise people to look at larger chain hotels in the area, who offer far better value for money. Would you pay £110 for the following: 1. The quality of the double bed was appalling. There was... More

This was our second stay here and we were delighted with the improvements since our last visit. We were greeted with a warm welcome and options for our preferred room. As we were staying with our 2 dogs we chose a room by the car park to enable easy 'walkies'. Our room was beautifully decorated, stylishly furnished and extremely clean.... More

A nice, unpretentious pub in a very pleasant setting. Food is reasonably priced (although there are some discrepancies) and served hot and freshly made to order. Sunday night quiz adds to the experience, as made the pub a bit more lively. I would imagine that if a little quieter, the pub may lack atmosphere. The waitress was more than accommodating,... More

Enjoyed a one night stay at this pleasant pub with a good breakfast and dinner from the "sausage menu". Excellent beer is kept very well and had a restful stay. If the weather had been better and the outside bar area busy it might have been noisy as my room overlooked the outside bar, but the weather failed the drinkers,... More
