My husband and i stayed here for our first wedding anniversary and we were not dissappointed! I originally found this little gem by searching for some where special to have a meal and then realised they did accommodation too. We wanted somewhere close to Fontwell Race Course, but not a budget hotel as it was a special occasion. After a quick email to check availability we were soon booked in for dinner, bed and breakfast at a really reasonable rate! We opted for the double room on booking (as i thought my husband might upgrade as a suprise) but it turned out he didnt need to as they upgraded us to the suite anyway. Thanks!! We were also able to check in early to get changed in time for the races, and upon arrival we had a lovely welcome and was pleased to see the restaurant full too! (always a good sign when you are booked in for dinner)
The check in was friendly and we had all the info we needed without being bombarded. The room itself is stunning, lovely high ceilings, four poster bed, free standing mirror, double doors leading to a balcony and best of all, Views of Arundel Castle. So gorgeous! We loved all the little touches, ie sweets on the mantle piece and complimentary toiletries. I loved the bath (as i dont have one at home) but some might miss a shower, although there is an attachment on the bath! Plenty of hot water and warm towels. We popped out for a drink in a local pub before dinner but was soon back for a glass of bubbly and a yummy dinner. The restaurant again was full but this didnt faulter the service or the quality. We both opted for the Chateau briand and it was absolutely mouth watering! As was the rest of our meal and wine. After a great nights sleep we woke up to a hearty breakfast which again was lovely. Obviously local, good quality ingredients are used and Lee and the rest of the staff care about what they do! We had such a lovely and memorable anniversary, its gonna be hard to beat. Thanks again for a wonderful stay and we will definately be back.
