Very rarely does one find accommodation where every aspect lives up to the standard expected. There was also the unexpected - to receive a pot of tea and biscuits upon arrival was such a welcoming touch. This was a truly outstanding establishment.

Nice, spacious rooms and friendly service. Rooms cleaned and maintained daily and kept in good condition. Good variety of breakfast options from fresh fruit, cereal and nuts to full English or other items.

Stayed here for big church day out. Great hotel/b&b. very friendly landlady and landlord. Didn't have the breakfast so can't comment on that as my wife's dad was staying in another hotel so went and had breakfast with him. Nice room, with a view of other buildings but that was okay. Good value for money.

The rooms were beautifully decorated, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast very good. Sarah was very obliging, and went out of her way to make suit us. The road is quietish and pleasant but close to the seafront. The single room although small had a decent ensuite and all it needed. Very good value for money.

We stayed at The Moorings for two nights with my elderly 'unstable' parents and from arrival to departure Sarah and her family were attentive, thoughtful and more than happy to help in any way possible. My parents had a ground floor room that they were more than pleased with and thoughtful 'extras' that couldn't compete with a high grade hotel.... More

The only bad thing i can find to say about the Moorings is that it doesn't have a seaview, unless you lean out of the window and twist your head to the left !!. We have stayed in a number of hotels and B&B's in Worthing over the years and this is by far the best. Sarah and her family... More

Despite the title, the moorings is a lovely bed and breakfast which hosts clean rooms, hot showers, a friendly staff, and quite a decent breakfast. The wifi could be slightly faster and perhaps some of the carpet should be replaced, but other than that I cannot fault their hospitality or cleanliness. I have attended both hotel and catering school and... More

Stayed for one night in May. Room was spotless & spacious and well equipped, Sarah was an excellent host too.Will return again if we get a chance. Only down side. We found the room quite cold but having said that we come from a North Queensland climate so are not used to the UK's Spring which is much colder than... More

A lovely welcome with lots of helpful information provided right from the start. Sarah is an excellent proprietor who takes real pride in her lodging. The furnishings are very much what you expect of a b and b in England with Victorian roots. The addition of two comfortable chairs was welcome. Our room also had a good table for doing... More
