“An excellent venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Having visited Goodwood House for varying reasons over the years, I could not rate this highly enough!

The facilities are excellent and the their various events on site that include the Festival of Speed are superbly operated. Their team are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble to make your visit memorable. The House is stunning with adjacent golf course and lunch or dinner at their restaurant 'The Kennels' is not to be missed.

“Could do better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

My husband and I booked the New Year's Eve package, staying at the Goodwood House Hotel first and then got transported to Goodwood House. On arriving at the House we had a look round and wanted to see some particular paintings and actually had to find someone to show us where they were hanging. That over we went into the dining room for dinner which was beautiful, then it started to go wrong. The starter potted brown shrimp and oak smoked salmon which was to heavy going for a starter, then warm parsnip and orange soup, very sweet, beef wellingtyon was ok but very dry, then it was called raspberry souffle which was quite big and sickly sweet. Music started in the background, there was no Master of Ceremonies to tell us what was happening. We wandered out into the main reception area where the piper was playing,outside sparklers were being lit and suddenly the lights were put out and the fireworks began which were excellent. I still feel sad that there was no countdown to the New Year and nobody had a chance to say 'Happy New Year' to anyone, again no Master of Ceremonies to tell us what was going on.

“History at your fingertips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Goodwood House is a wonderful venue for all sorts of activities, but the best part for me is the history. A great place to walk around and absorb the atmosphere.

What a lovely house to visit. The staff were so informative and friendly and the whole atmosphere is welcoming. With the horse racing and car events there is so much to learn. Lovely cream teas too.
