The old station and 4 Pullman carriages make up this romantic place to spend a night or two. A little way out of Petworth but worth making the effort to visit. There is a pub next door (which we didn't visit) Breakfast outdoors on the old platform was an added bonus.

Just returned from a three night break at this B&B, what an absolute gem! The actual railway station is kept in tip top condition, with a lot of photos throughout of it's sympathetic renovation by the owners. There are four carriages with rooms (all tastefully done), and a further two rooms within the actual station building. Breakfast was perfect, a... More

stayed for 2 nights in Pullman carriages, Flora 1 & Alicante 2. Both rooms were very comfortable & had everything you need, comfy beds, well fitted out en suites and a fan to keep it cool! The Station itself oozes charm, afternoon tea scones were yummy & the breakfasts were delicious. A very unusual and atmospheric place to stay -... More

A wonderful experience just spoilt by the breakfast service on our second morning! Very well appointed B & B with everything you could wish for for a perfect break. Unfortunately the service at breakfast was so slow it almost went backwards. A little staff training could work miracles. It was a good job we didn't have a train to catch!!!!

Found this on Tripadvisor funnily enough and immediately knew we had to stay here. We were not in the slightest disappointed. It is of a very high standard throughout. The frontage looks beautiful and it gets better and better. Breakfast/drinks/reading room is very grand. You are shown to your carriage bedroom and it blows you away. The fixtures and fittings...

We stayed in a Pullman Carriage here for one night to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. What a great stay. Really unusual but very comfortable accommodation excellent en suite facilities. We were fortunate the weather was beautiful and so were able to eat breakfast outside on the platform. Highly recommend a stay!

Something quirky, but fabulous. What we appreciated both were the details that went into making the Station Hotel just that bit more special. From the beautiful landscaped garden made from the tracks to the crisp linen sheets and the cafetiere and teapot in the room. The breakfast is generous and delicious, the service impeccable. Only a short break but a... More

I had the pleasure of spending 2 nights in a Pullman Carriage, a birthday treat for me. The carriages are beautifully restored and very comfortable with a flat screen TV, tea and coffee making and a good size bathroom. A superb breakfast and tea/coffee available all day in the waiting room or platform. The nearby pub, Badgers, served a very... More

In summer, enjoy our fine breakfast on the platform, overlooking our exotic garden or, in winter, by a roaring fire in our former Waiting Room, with its 20ft vaulted ceiling.The Old Railway Station has something for every discerning traveller, looking for something different. ... more   less
