I don't know why I haven't reviewed this wonderful hotel before. We held my daughter's wedding reception here in 2009 and have had many enjoyable family meals since. Last weekend we returned for a long weekend to celebrate a special birthday and everything was just perfect. Our suite was so comfortable, beautiful views and had everything you could need, including... More

We were a group of ladies and we were served in a beautiful triple aspect sitting room, gathered round two tables in front of a wonderful fireplace which in the winter must be stunning. The staff were wonderfully attentive and there was a really good choice of teas etc. My mint tea was fresh and piping hot. The array of... More

This hotel gives the guest a taste of fine living, done with excellent service in a lovely setting. We chose it as it is near Glyndebourne, but there were a lot of pleasant surprises, not least of which was the fine restaurant. The only downside (and this was the only downside) is the lack of good reliable wifi. That may... More

It was purfect you couldn't find a more exquisite place to eat And the service was outstanding. The waiters and waitresses were impeccable, very smartly dressed. The food were served with Silver Salvers, and they We're removed all at the same time, for each person dining. If you want something special this is the place.
