Pub / restaurant lacks ambiance but fish (sea bass and plaice) were superb. Completely spoiled by being charged £35 for Chablis, not £17 for Chardonnay. Apparently it was a genuine mistake and that simply made it ok? !!!!

We had a double room with ensuite shower/toilet, at the back of the hotel. The bed was comfortable, the water hot and the television worked well. There is air conditioning too which we needed during our visit as we were blessed with hot afternoon sun through the window. The room was clean although a little more attention might be given to the areas around the basin as somebody else's toothpaste was decorating the door and wall. The rooms were cleaned daily but I think in these virus times, it might be safer to do one thorough clean between guests and then stay out of the room altogether until vacated - it just might cut down unecessary risk to visitors and staff. Entrance to the room and pub was by electronic key which worked on every occasion which is a first in my experience! There's a car park at the rear of the pub - not far to stagger with luggage. Unless I missed it, there didn't appear to be disabled access to the rooms which was up some fairly steep steps. Although we didn't hear any pub noise in our room, we could hear the other residents especially the one that left at 5 in the morning! WiFi is available which needs logging into on each occasion. Breakfast can be booked and dinner was available (the latter not Monday to Wednesday when we visited). We didn't eat here though so can't comment on the food. There's a good range of well-kept real ales in the pub. We enjoyed our stay.

We booked this hotel a day before we went just myself and my husband. Lovely place to stay. Close to the beach and the shops. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The staff there were very helpful. Would totally recommend this hotel to other guests

Very impressed with the COVID precautions in place and the adherence by all staff to them. Room was pleasant and clean, although a little stuffy, despite the air con unit in the room. The biggest improvement (see previous review below) was the food quality. I ordered a full English breakfast and full it was. It was humongous but top quality. One of the best I’ve ever had. So a big well done as it was a massive improvement over the last time we stayed. It’s still on the pricey side but with the big improvement in food quality, it took the sting out of it. All staff were excellent and you could see that ‘customer service’ was firmly on their agenda. Well done. (Previous review) For the price, much better quality of food was expected. I ate in here about 3 years ago and the food was definitely better then. Accommodation was very small. Car Park at rear is very poorly lit. There is no lift here and if carrying big suitcases up several flights of stairs it would not be suitable for some guests. Overall, a little disappointed and expected better for the price.

Late in in the day I needed a room in West Sussex, thankfully I found The Seal. The rooms are spotlessly clean well set out and have everything a business traveller needs, the bathroom was small but practical and had a good shower. Downstairs finds an excellent team from afternoon bar staff to servers that wouldn’t be out of place in a high end Michelin restaurant. The food is outstanding and even though being a little full from the night before I stumped for the full English and as you see from the picture it was just excellent well cooked and served hot with good coffee, if you was reading this thinking ok about £150 a night B&B would be fair try £60 !!!! Hopefully the manager is reading this your cleaner is fantastic your bar staff great your servers attentive and just very nice people, your hotel and dining room are the best I have visited in a long time. Thank you and see you soon
