#1 of 5 Specialty lodging in Amberley
Travelers' Choice
A unique luxury hotel located in the picturesque village of Amberley at the foot of the South Downs. Privately owned by Andrew and Christina Brownsword, this magnificent 900-year-old castle is enclosed by a 60 foot high curtain wall and portcullis that remains open, behind which you will discover an enchanting hotel offering the highest standards of food and service. Bedrooms are resplendent with the luxurious facilities you would expect from a country house hotel. History encompasses every part of this wonderful building and the many acres of gardens it stands in. Enjoy discovering our tennis courts, 18-hole putting green and croquet lawn, and even our resident peacock roaming the grounds. For those seeking tranquillity and relaxation, there are many quiet corners to discover under the shade of a tree or by the fireside.

After an initial 15 minute wait for our table everything went smoothly. The garden surroundings are beautiful and being joined by the noisy white peacock was quite special. The drinks menu was varied but we were disappointed that it was one only one drink each and no top ups ( which I have had at other establishments very similar to this) . There was a teapot each but this soon got cold as it was served a little in advance of the tea. The tea , consisted of what’s you would expect, eg sandwiches, scones and cakes but the addition of a savoury tart and sausage roll were delicious and very welcome. Overall it was a delightful experience.

The castle itself is both historic and photogenic; and the staff are both welcoming and helpful( though getting the waiters attention was a real problem): but dont spend £80 on “tea for two”! Being charitable it could be such a lovely experience ,sitting out on the lawn on a sunny day ,but the tea itself though not a ripoff should have been top of the range to match the setting and it was not What was wrong?First of all our tea pots came with no accompanying jugs of hot water for top ups . Then the cucumber sandwiches were inedibly soggy;the eggrolls had little egg but lots of roll: the smoked salmon was generous and excellent .. but was served in an enormous bread roll ,not slivers of brown bread. Petits fours were OK but were almost certainly not home made : and where were the slices of home made cake?Scones were deliciously warm and home made ,but came (initially )with just one mean little pot of clotted cream( 2 more came on request). There was no choice of jam and the jam provided tasted uninspiringly supermarket ..and came without a spoon. Only half the tables had parasols so we (and others )sat in blazing sun. Judging by the looks on other peoples faces we were not the only people who thought it could and should ( in a Stately Home)have been done a whole lot better!A small glass of champagne each would have helped too!

We had afternoon tea, it was a lovely June day so managed to sit out in the gardens. Just so beautiful, looking at the well kept gardens, listening to the birds & water running. Such a huge choice of teas & coffees. Delicious mini quiches & warm scones.Watch out for the famous white peacocks, the male is very tame & my Mum isn't a fan of birds at close contact!

Wonderful setting, fantastic garden and grounds . Perfect to have afternoon tea which was as you would expect very good. We had the champagne flight with 3 generous glasses of champagne. A really lovely way to celebrate and spend an afternoon.

Decided to get away for a night. Received an upgrade on arrival but had a problem with the radiators so upgraded again to a suite. Problem with radiators up stairs but staff provided a heater and warmth
