We Stayed here for two nights at the end of August whilst visiting family down there, we've stayed in many hotels in west Sussex and are still looking for the one we will be happy to return to time after time. I always wanted to stay at the swan having passed it many times. Check in was efficient, the room was up quite a few stairs. Nice room, quite big, nice and comfy bed. Tea/coffee lovely. Very clean. No view from the window but a bit of greenery and it was fine. Bathroom was ok.... but the shower didn't work. It dripped just a load of hot water... a nightmare for shampooing my hair. I asked the maid and she said she'd get it looked at. I felt confident they would sort it and I would have no further problems. But they never, the engineer apparently said it was fine. My husband took a shower the next day and burnt himself... he didn't bother again. I asked at reception about it and to be honest,... they really didn't appear to care... I think they had other issues more pressing that us which was sad as I won't stay there again and it was otherwise a good place to stay. The bar downstairs was nice, the breakfast was probably one of the best we have ever had and the bar staff delightful. Then came evening meal... three vegetarian choices. One was risotto topped with an egg... didn't fancy that, actually I hadn't been feeling too well and wanted an omelette which they had hooray.... hmmm except an omelette and wild spinach with chips was a whooping £14 fourteen pounds? You got to be kidding me... how much does a couple of eggs and a handful of spinach cost? Disgraceful so we had the £7.50 ploughman's which was delicious. Lovely food though. Nice area, the family came round and we sat in the area by the football table and chatted and it was lovely. But if I can't wash my hair then unfortunately we can't stay there again... ah well. We will keep looking for the perfect hotel to do our visiting in.
