“Richmond Arms Restaurant and Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Excellent meal. Very good service. Accommodated both my wife's gluten allergy, and the 2 children with our friends.

I had Belly Pork which was excellent with a nice crunch, as did the roast potatoes!

Staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Will be back.

We came away very much in accord with the AA 4 star rating for this establishment. All the mod cons. Attentive helpful staff. Only comment would be that lighting in our room (202) wasn't all that bright, so getting ready for a reception was a little bit harder than at home for example. Benefits from a fantastic rural setting and we thought very comfortable beds indeed.

I recently stayed at the Goodwood Hotel on business. The service, food (dinner and breakfast) and facilities were excellent; as was my room, which was clean and modern. Set in the Sussex countryside, this hotel is ideal for business or pleasure and it also has its own golf courses and leisure complex - an all round great hotel.

A wonderful experience with all the hotel facilities. A spotlessly clean and comfortable room (although a little more ambient than we would have wished for). The pool, sauna and steam room used by some of our party was immaculate. Four of our party played golf and commented on the course being well maintained, all down to the groundsmen and marshall. We all enjoyed an amazing food experience in the Richmond and for that I must congratulate Colin along with his staff on the attention that they all afforded our party. A mention must be made here of Simon the chef who prepared the food experience. Everything was totally organic and from the Goodwood Park Estate. From the very beginning of our four day stay until the last minute all the staff were extremely helpful and courteous and I cannot praise them all enough. Our party have already made the decision to return next year. Thank you and congratulations to all at The Goodwood Hotel.

What a great hotel! We were a party of 8 staying for 3 nights and all thought this was one of the best hotels we had used. Hats off to the person who recruited and trained the staff - all had a pleasant word and a smile - so often missing today. Would particularly mention Colin and the Dutch waitress in the restaurant. The food was superb from evening meal to breakfast - all organic from the Estate and cooked to perfection by Simon who must be in line for a Michelin star.

On the down side, although the rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable, the lighting was poor and the window was without a net or a blind which meant that you were on nodding terms with anyone outside. The hairdryer was set in a drawer in the bedroom which meant that it was difficult to see to dry your hair because of the poor lighting. The bathroom lighting was good, but of course, there was no electric plug other than for a razor.

However we are planning to return next year - the hospitality, leisure facilities and golf were great!

The decor is bland and sterile along the interminable corridors.
The only place to have a cup of tea on arrival was in the bistro area with noisy children and the smell of fish and chips from the diners (16.20 hours) with only breakfast tea or Earl Grey tea on offer in a pottery mug. The metal chairs being constantly scraped along the flagstones were very noisy, a very unpleasant experience.
We dined in The Kennels that evening, the food was very nice, but there were no side plates to put bread and butter upon? and another diner injecting his insulin? at the dining table was quite unneccessary, perhaps he was attention seeking.
We were upgraded to a suite as our room had no hot water and the aircon in the suite would only go down to 19deg. We were booked to stay 3 nights and left after the first night.

Wonderful staff all very helpful and seemed happy in their work. Great food in the evening to warm us up after a cold wet day at the races lots of organic options. Restaurant manager helpful in suggesting wine choices to go with fish and lamb. Spacious room oprning out onto a patio. Would love to go back for longer.
