My husband and I stayed at the Ardington Hotel in Worthing for two nights in July 2013. We were recommended this hotel by a friend who lives in Worthing and he did not let us down at all. The staff in all parts of the hotel are amazingly polite and conscientious. Nothing was a problem or a bother. They were always smiling and helpful. Good old fashioned service that nowadays seems to be going out of style.
Our bedroom at the front of the hotel overlooked the Skene park. There was a little bit of noise from the road around the park, but not too intrusive. The room was very well equipped and immaculately clean. The bathroom was positively showroom clean!
We ate the first night in the bar, and found the menu to be a little lacking in choice, although the food we did choose was lovely.
The second night we ate in the Indigo Restaurant of the hotel. The food was gorgeous. Whoever is running the kitchen deserves a medal or a pay rise, because it was so tasty and so well presented. The waiting staff in the restaurant were very attentive and had full knowledge of the menu and answered all questions quite happily without needing to refer to the kitchen.
My only (very minor) complaint would be about the hot breakfast buffet. I really don't like the trend towards these buffet breakfasts. The food is always badly prepared and looks very tired. The bacon is always badly cooked and never crisp. This is a universal complaint and not just directed at the Ardington. A breakfast cooked to order is always to be preferred.
However, apart from this little gripe, I would have no hesitation in recommending the Ardington to anyone and would certainly stay there again myself.
