I booked a couple of rooms in the Pullman carriages for a friends birthday. Fantastic conversion of old carriages into quirky but smart and very comfortable accommodation. Spacious bathrooms complete with toiletries, plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits in the room, flat screen tv, free wifi, complimentary tea/coffee on arrival, a very tasty breakfast efficiently served in the station's wonderful...

My partner and I were invited with friends for afternoon tea to 'the old railway station' by friends, we has never heard of it before, and were very wonderfully surprised when we arrived, the building is set in a beautiful part of the country, and we were lucky it was a beautiful sunny day! We went through to the back... More

We were lucky enough to have lovely weather and able to take our breakfast outside on the platform both days, service by the staff was excellent and we were able to relax... More

We stayed in Mimosa on 27th July and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The bedroom and bathroom were both surprisingly well equipped and the bed was very comfortable. We felt very lucky to have a taste of the renowned Pullman experience. Breakfast was served in the Waiting Room and it could not have been better with a full fried breakfast served,... More

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

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...
