It was a very hot day when we stayed at the Chichester Park Hotel and this fact definitely coloured our opinion of the hotel. When we arrived in our room on the second floor, it was extremely hot. We opened the window to try and cool it down, as there was no air-conditioning. During the night, we had the choice of leaving the window open to keep cool and being kept awake by the traffic noise or closing the window and feeling far too hot whilst trying to sleep. Consequently, we had a very bad night’s sleep, even though the bed was reasonably comfortable.
When we arrived at breakfast around 8.30, it seemed as though most of the guests had already eaten, as the staff were re-laying the tables for lunch. We felt that there was insufficient choice for breakfast. There was a huge bowl of natural yoghurt and another of tinned prunes and a small amount of tinned grapefruit. There was no fresh fruit or fruit yoghurt, no cake and very little bread for toast or viennoiserie. My husband chose a cooked breakfast from the heated trays, but said that it was rather over-cooked, as it had been in the trays too long. I don’t eat a cooked breakfast, and had to suffice with a piece of brioche (similar to the packets one can buy in supermarkets), which was very stale and two very small croissants. I considered this to be very expensive at £9.95 per person for a buffet breakfast.
The rooms are of a satisfactory standard for a three star hotel and are good value at £62 a night. We did find, however, that the WI-FI in the rooms was only intermittent. We were unable to access internet 2 or 3 times during our one night stay. We definitely found the road noise a problem, as the hotel is close to a busy roundabout.
