Obviously everyone has different opinions but we were disappointed. Whilst the exterior of the chapel is lovely, once inside the room that we had (the front chapel) was very dim with very high windows and not one could be opened, (certainly not light and airy as one reviewer has described) it must be really hot in there in the summer....

I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. The room does have a tall window that opens and overlooks the garden and opens very wide on the special openers. The rooms are very well insulated to ensure that the room stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Heating is on 24hrs and controlled in each room to... More

We were looking for a hotel/ B&B at short notice and stumbled across this. The photos on the site sold it to us since it was not the sort of place we would ordinarily choose. It is a little unusual but in a lovely way. We stayed in a 17th century converted chapel, with direct access to the room. The... More

We had a REALLY wonderful stay here - clean, comfortable and welcoming. It has an interesting history - both medieval and more recent - WW2 and the Normandy Landings. The King of Norway stayed there in the 1940 and the back garden was a runway for the Norwegian Air Force in the war. Critically this establishment lives up to the... More

We booked this B&B so that we could go to the races, Glorious Goodwood,1st -4th August, 2013, it's a little way off the the race track but well worth having to get to there in a taxi, which Sandra always rang for us, she uses a lovely local firm who are gentlemen and tourist guides if, like us, it is...

Spent 2 enjoyable nights at this B&B with a great host. Sandra even assisted us with our laundry which was over and above what was expected. Wonderful interaction over breakfast with other guests at the communal dining table. Sandra was a wealth of local information which helped considerably as the weather wasn't the best during our stay. Highly recommend this... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for four nights last week as we visited Brighton, Chichester, Southsea, etc. We had two nights in the chapel, and two nights in the house, and they were all as wonderful as each other. We found the place with very, very little trouble, without using a sat nav, and although the car park was... More

We often go to bognor as we have an elderly friend who lives there,She is not too well at the moment and it was wonderful to be able to look after her during the day and to relax in this delightful converted chapel in the evening. Even though it was very cold outside we were extremely cosy and warm. The... More

The welcome was warm, the room was very comfortable and the bed had a proper sprung mattress - most unusual in our experience! The inclusion of a small fridge was useful, both for wine and milk. Little touches like a bottle of squash and practically any toiletries a person could want we're much appreciated.

We escape every year to Old Chapel Forge for a much needed break. Clean lovely bedding, everything you could want in the bathroom, breakfast selection just fantastic with locally sourced ingredients. Tea, hot chocolate, coffee, fresh water and cookies, very welcome after a long drive. The little fridge just right if you want to pop a bottle of wine in... More

We wanted a cosy, tasteful bolt-hole for a night away from two young children and this suited us perfectly. Wonderfully warm, solid and so pretty. It had all the conveniences we could have asked for but the peace and privacy of a country retreat. Breakfast in the morning round the farmhouse table was a little awkward but everyone was perfectly... More
