“Don't miss it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Despite the wintery weather and snow flurries, we enjoyed our stay at Amberly Castle. A few cheerful daffodils and an unfailingly cheerful staff made our visit warm and hospitable. The dinners were first rate and the service perfection. If you visit, after appreciating the grounds, be sure and stroll into the village of Amberly. It has some of the most beautiful thatched cottages imaginable, no shopping, but chatty villagers. Admittedly, the price is high, but it's worth it.

I took friends to afternoon tea on Friday. Horrid weather so we arrived almost an hour early - no problem... Could we sit by a fire? No problem... I see some on here didn't like the cakes... I did, the lovely sumptuous rich carrot cake with its soft icing was super and the lemon cake was heaven. we made sure we left as little as possible as it was all too good to waste. delicious little fruit tartlets... the scones were slightly on the dry side, but that is only to mention the only such comment of the afternoon... lovely pots of fresh clotted cream, and open pots of fresh jams etc.. We liked (and finished) the sandwiches, although with a vegetarian (as well as someone who doesn't like mustard) we did have to ask for a few alternatives, but again - no problem! We were warm, comfortable, served amiably, efficiently and with charm and we left stuffed after about 3 hours! It was a wonderful tea and I can not recommend it highly enough.

Took up an offer for a set Sunday lunch and was not disappointed. Value for money and a nice treat. Would highly recommend. Courteous staff, excellent food and wine. Coffee taken elsewhere, followed by a stroll around the grounds and the ramparts.

Stayed April 2012, traveled with family

Our two daughters treated us to a wonderful anniversary treat; we were booked into the Bodiam Room at the Castle, which was quite luxurious. The four-poster bed was most comfortable, and we really enjoyed the whirlpool. Our evening meal was excellent, and the chef made us a lovely lemon mousse cake with a diamante '60' on it. The staff could not have been more attentive and friendly, and altogether we had a wonderful time.

Room Tip: A room within the castle walls is a good choice; one is close to the lounges and restaurant.

We have stayed at Amberley on a number of occasions it has always proved an outstanding place, the ambience is just so well managed, dining is of the highest standard and service overall is unbeatable, my opinion is once you try it you willhave to revisit again and again.

Room Tip: The turret rooms in main building provide great views.

I took my mother and daughter to this wonderful hotel as a Christmas treat and could not fault it. We stayed in the Crowhurst and Bramber rooms that are next to each other and within the castle walls. The rooms were warm and comfortable and the castle was beautifully decorated. The staff are friendly and polite.

We had a delicious dinner and were seated next to the lovely roaring fire in the dining room. The chef made a specially prepared meal for my elderly mother who didn't want anything from the 'a la carte' menu. Breakfast was equally as good.

Overall a wonderful experience - would love to go again if I win the lottery!!

Room Tip: Choose a room within the castle walls.
