Three nights’ stay at the Old Tollgate was the third leg of our recent multi-destination English holiday, and by some margin the best value for money of any of the four hotels we stayed in. Given the quality of the accommodation, the pre-book no-refund B&B package that we bought was astonishingly good value, and I wonder whether the hotel has... More

Fine traditional hotel in lovely village about 8miles from Brighton. Good buffet breakfast, 4 roast carvery for evening with several other options for those who are averse to this trend, staff friendly and attentive. We were allocated a 4poster room with shower in bathroom and spa bath in bedroom, so were very clean when we left! Also plenty of parking.... More

A coach load of us went for a meal at the Old Tollgate Hotel Steyning today and it was fantastic. Not only were the staff brilliant but the food was to die for. The starter was a help yourself cold buffet which has just about everything and for a fish lover like me it was heaven. Cold meats, salad, smoked... More

We had a reservation for last Saturday but unfortunately were unable to stay as our room was out of action because of a water leak. Keith at The Old Tollgate very kindly organised for us to stay somewhere else in the locality so we are unable to comment on the accommodation at the Old Tollgate. However we did eat there... More

A great hotel in every aspect - location, views, rooms, restaurant. Have stayed here many times over the past few years and always enjoy it. Never any problems, staff very attentive, room immaculate, plenty of free parking, good wifi. A real pleasure.

We stayed here for one night while visiting friends in the south of England. We chose a superior room which was situated in an annexe - rather a lot of steps to access it and getting to the dining room in bad weather would not be fun. The room itself was comfortable and spotless - it seemed almost brand new.... More

The Superior rooms at the Tollgate hotel are excellent. and well appointed and there is ample parking. The restaurant is a carvery, and as we do not like this type of dinning we chose room service. There is a good choice and it comes well presented without to much delay. Breakfast is self service also but the staff are on... More

It's such a pleasure eating here. The carvery is one of the best around. So much choice and an excellent desert selection ... Fill your plate it's great! Afterward we sat in the lounge and drank coffee in a comfortable chair, allowing our dinner to settle. We walked in Bramber after lunch and took in the beauty of the castle... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night only after returning back to the UK from a trip abroad. We did not want to drive straight home from the channel tunnel and as we have never visited the Brighton area before, we decided to book one night here. Excellent choice. It is located in a very nice, peaceful village. We... More
