We stayed here during the weekend of the Goodwood Revival as something of a last minute booking when other arrangements 'blew up'. I didn't really know anything about Champneys' resorts (much to my husband's amusement) and still less about spas of any variety, so I was completely gob-smacked at the sight of guests eating their breakfast in their robes (we weren't even allowed to do that at school!).
However, for purely hotel users, this was a really nice place with charming, flexible staff and excellent food. Everything was clean and well-presented and our room spacious, comfortable with a decent large bed. We're not TV watchers and so when the neighbours' Coronation Street proved a bit loud and we requested an alternative room this was quickly provided without fuss. Rooms 1 & 2 were both ground floor with French doors opening onto a quad with lawns and a semi-private mini-seating area - unfortunately it was rainy during our stay but his would have been a nice spot for an aperitif or morning coffee.
Much of what is on offer here - large grounds for walking/cycling, birdwatching, golf nearby and of course the spa with numerous treatments - was lost on us as we were speeding off to watch the racing. However it all looked lovely and undoubtedly a good way to spend daytimes.
Although this was a last minute booking the accommodation was still rather expensive but the food (dinner on two nights) was very good value and very well-cooked. We probably wouldn't stay again but it is easy to see why guests make this a destination for a birthday or hen party treat.
