“Fantastic modern room short drive from the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012 via mobile

We arrived late and were a bit miffed to be told the restaurant stopped serving at 9 and that there was no room service option. They did knock us up a sandwich but it was a bit disappointing - parma ham and mild cheddar? I thought was an odd choice.
The staff however were very friendly, young, energetic and keen to help.
The best thing about the hotel was the lovely modern rooms. I had a corner room with smart French windows opening onto a private garden area overlooking beautiful meadows (hayfever sufferers take note). The room had a walk-in wardrobe, large comfy bed and all modern appliances.
The bathroom was modern with a lovely roll top bath and fantastic huge shower.
Breakfast was very good and there was the option to eat outside.
There was good free wifi throughout.
The hotel is opposite a great pub serving a lovely local Sussex ale and selling pizza and pasta. Sadly they had run out of pizzas following a very busy Sunday.
The hotel is a short drive from the fantastic sandy West Wittering beach.
Would definitely recommend for business, or romantic couple stay.. perhaps not the best choice for a family as it has a grown-up feel..

Dear Toto_W6
It is always a great suprise when another review pops up on Trip adviser . Thank you for taking the time to do the review. We are pleased you enjoyed our staff and their approach to service. The room you were in is one of 8 that were built in 2008 so they are bright and modern . Our apologies about the sandwich , we do suggest that our guests give us a call on route and we can keep the kitchen open . I am pleased you like the area as much as we do .
Best Regards

We were staying in Chichester in order to attend a family funeral. The room looked out on to peaceful meadows and after a stressful day it was good to be able to relax in such pleasant surroundings. Particularly the wonderful mattress on the amble bed with cosy duvet. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed a tasty breakfast. We would return again if and when we travel to the area. Thank you.

We stayed at CCH overnight when our neice used the hotel for both the wedding and reception. The staff were first class and the whole day was excellent, the comfortable lounge was layed out for the wedding and after the ceremony all quickly restored. The food was first class and the whole experience very enjoyable. The room was quiet and comfortable and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

One observation - hook in the bathroom please.

Room Tip: The rooms on the far side are away from the road and quiet with nice little patios and good views.

We visit friends and family in Chichester twice a year. We found Crouchers five years ago and now we always use this hotel / restaurant for our visits. Excellent service, food & accommodation. Good location, easy to find. Recommended.

Room Tip: We have used several rooms over the years, all very satisfactory.

An excellent find. Staff very helpful and patient, especially as we were not sure to start with what are plans were and kept changing. Rooms were clean, tidy and functional, bathroom excellent. Food also very good and service in restaurant excellent. Would certainly come back here again.

My wife and I were looking for some where to stay in/around Chichester for a weekend break.
Previously stayed at the Crab & Lobster, but wanted to try some where different.

Crouchers is on A268 outside of Chichester, but only a short drive to the town centre.

Stayed in Room 17 which was excellent other than the fact that the towel rail in the bath room was permentately on - which heated up the whole room (hence poor mark for quality of sleep). Reported this to reception upon checking out and I'm sure the matter has now been addressed.

Ate in the restaurant on both nights - great food, a good wine list (with a strong soth African bias - reflects the owners) and fantastic staff.

Acid tests: would I go back - yes (and to Crouchers, rather than Crab & Lobster); Would I recommend - res :)
