When I visit the theatre in Chichester I like to stay overnight at the George Bell House. It is an easy walk from the Chichester Festival Theatre. It is within the grounds of Chichester Cathedral, and it feels like staying in a private house.
The rooms are very nicely decorated and well equipped. There is also reserved parking outside the House (hard to find in Chichester).
The staff are very helpful.
There is an extra charge for breakfast, but it is cooked to order and the portions are generous.
On our more recent stay we were joined by friends. They thought that their bed was too soft, so for those whose top priority is a firm mattress, my advice would be to look elsewhere.
Otherwise, I would certainly recommend the George Bell House.
