Food was very good. Fish platter with Japanese crumbed prawns wonderful. Burgers good but only medium well done available. Fish and chips - very stylish ! Chips in dripping delightful - memories of a time gone by. The sweet potato fries were also good. Above average pub type food.Prices perhaps a litlle high for this type of food. Service friendly...

My husband is a member of the Goodwood Racing Club and we had been wanting to stay at the hotel for a while because of positive experiences at Goodwood events and the food and service at The Kennels, so when the opportunity to stay arose because we were travelling in the area we were looking forward it. What a disappointment.... More

This is a hotel , where returning just reminds you how inadequate it is . Apart from its location to the racecourse it has no redeeming aspects . I've been staying here race week for far too long ( not that it is any better non race weeks ) . Insufficient staff to get bags to the room. Poor Poor... More

Great facilities, good food, friendly staff. What more could You want ? I would only critics the selection of food on the set menu - it was good but not great. We had played golf and the choice was more fine dining than after golf - but that is just personal. The quality was excellent.

Stayed overnight after friends wedding at The Kennels. The staff were wonderful and so helpful and polite. Our room was comfortable and we both slept well in the huge bed. Breakfast was a veritable feast which I couldn't do justice due to over indulging the previous day. Our first visit but not our last as looking to return on our... More

Lovely comfortable room with all facilities available. The room was very well equipped and had all that we needed. The chocolates where a nice touch as this was our wedding night. We also left our bags at the hotel in the morning and they were more than happy to look after them and place them in our room for us... More

Booked for my daughter Jessica's 21st birthday treat with mum. A spa day and high tea. Well they are back full of smiles and totally relaxed. Top marks for dad as not what they expected from this normal festival of speed venue. Overwelned by the house and the fantastic tour followed by high tea. Friendly enthusiastic staff great surroundings followed... More

If you are impressed with attention to detail this is the place for you. From check in to check out the staff give the impression that you are a special guest. Great food , nice rooms and a relaxed atmosphere but with a bit of life in the place mean that your stay will be one to remamber.

It's a quality hotel with a style, lovely surrandings, staff helpful and friendly, good food. It would be nice if staff at the reception could advice more about attractions and activities in the hotel and the local area. Definitely would stay again....will wait for promotion though as £200-£300 for a room it seems a bit too much.
