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

We stumbled on the Vestry en route to the cathedral and Roman ruins at Fishbourne. Nancy's English breakfast and my eggs Benedict were delicious, filling and the perfect start to the day. Spacious, warm interior added to the good atmosphere.

We stayed here for one night and that was enough for us!!!. The Hotel itself was ok and welcoming, our room was a good size and very clean. The bathroom could do with being up-dated as the tiles looked dirty and it was a bit musty smelling.. I also think the web site needs up-dating as it's not a Hotel... More

Exactly as other reviews have said. Very noisy at night and really not a very welcoming place to come back to at night. It is not at all clear when booking through hotel comparison websites that this is a loud music bar with rooms above.

We had chosen to stay here on what was supposed to be a quiet night. We knew it would be noisy on other nights but had been told not so on a Wednesday. Imagine our horror when the bed literally rocked to the loud base of music until after midnight! The bed was very uncomfortable but the cleanliness of the... More
