... but I wouldn't want to stay longer. The hotel part of the Vestry is reached either through the pub bar or a separate door off to the side. The pub itself is rather dingy (and it is here you also have your breakfast) and has notices up giving severe warnings about what will happen to you if you are... More

We visited the Vestry for a 2 night stay on Friday and Saturday. Positives are:- The location (very central for Chichester and all attractions) Very helpful and friendly staff Good breakfast Room satisfactory Negative:- The music below was so loud that it was impossible to sleep until it finished after 12.30am. We are music lovers but the volume was such... More

We've visited The Vestry for breakfast during the Glorious Goodwood race meeting for the last two years. The breakfast is excellent, arrives very quickly and the staff are always really friendly. The reason I'm writing this review is that this year I had a weekend bag with me that I didn't really want to lug up to the racecourse on... More

I stayed here for business as I had a very early meeting in Chichester. What I had failed to realise was that I was above a disco on a Tuesday night. Even when the music stopped people were returning to their rooms very noisy. In future I will get up at 5am to attend a 9am meeting rather than get... More

We have just come back from a 2 night stay at the Vestry and we had a very enjoyable time . The staff were lovely and I could not fault the breakfast. We had been looking forward to the live music but it was actually a DJ both nights . It was modern dance / club music and very loud... More

Hotel was in an excellent position with a short walk from the station and central for shops, restaurants and pubs. Room was clean, with complimentary shower gel and shampoo. Tea coffee and biscuits and also hair dryer, trouser press, fan and electric fire. Staff were very accommodating about extras of the breakfast menu. Lovely breakfast. Overall a good stay but... More

My best friend and myself regularly come to the vestry on a weekend evening, however we've become more and more disillusioned over the last couple of months finding the atmosphere to have gone downhill considerably. The bar staff (some of the females in particular) have really bad attitudes and seem more interested in checking themselves out in the mirrors behind... More

This is music pub that runs a bed and breakfast. Rooms were comfortable but a little grubby. Sheets, bath and loo clean. Breakfast excellent, cooked to order. The young lady that checked us in was lovely and friendly. As a lively pub and restaurant it is a great place to stay if you want music at night and a short... More
