Perfect place to stay when walking in the area

We were so impressed with this hotel. From check in to departure the staff were friendly and professional. The room was big enough to contain everything needed for our stay and the hot chocolate and biscuits in our room warmed us up after a long day geocaching. Dinner and breakfast were delicious and the cheerful staff, Debbie and Lois ( who went over and above her job), in the morning made a nice start to another long geocaching day. If we are in the area again this is definitely the hotel for us. Thank you.

Just perfect.

We took advantage of a kid free weekend and thought the Castle Inn looked great. It was so relaxing. The guvnor and a fellow biker guest kindly helped with a problem on my bike. Nice touch. We will be back.

Fantastic Hotel

We stayed for 4 nights last week and cannot recommend this hotel enough. The staff were so friendly, professional and efficient. The food from the breakfast to the evening meal was superb, we ate there every evening, trying a different main each time and every one was fantastic. From the moment we arrived we felt at home and completely relaxed. The whole place was so well run, our bedroom was perfect with more than enough room for the three of us. It had great character paired with a modern ensuite which included a separate shower and a large bath should you need to soothe aching muscles after a long day walking! It's location is perfect for exploring the South Downs and the lovely Sussex Coast with lots of attractions within easy reach. Thank you to Debbie for being such a friendly face in the morning and Lois for welcoming us to breakfast , showing us where everything was and taking our order with a smile. We would also like to say a massive thank you to Holly, Tijen, Jodie and Jacob for welcoming us back after hectic days out, for taking the time to chat to us and being interested in our day, for recommending some really great places to visit, serving our food and being able to remember our favourite drinks all with a big smile and whilst making sure that all other guests/customers in the bar/restaurant were also looked after in exactly the same way - we will definitely be back.

Fabulous service

"Great location and friendly helpful staff."

We stayed 2 nights in mid August to visit our son in Brighton and wanted to stay out of town.

+ The room was good and the staff all helpful. Breakfast was good and overall the service was good.

- There was a bit of traffic noise in the early morning but this was due to the diversion in place for because of the Shoreham Air Show disaster. I am sure this would not normally be an issue.

Would recommend to a friend.

"overnight stay while walking south downs way"

We stayed for 1 night as convenient for stopping off from South Downs Way walk.
Lovely village and a good quiet location. The staff were friendly, but the lads on duty in the evening not very clued up, and tables not totally clean. Comfortable stay though and the food was very good, especially the scrambled egg and smoked salmon breakfast.

+ quiet, comfortable, good food
Would recommend to a friend.

"Great place o stay."

Stayed for three nights.
A little bit of everything on offer pub, restaurant and accommodation in an 'olde world setting'. Owners have invested a lot of time and money and want to get it right.

+ Good parking
Would recommend to a friend.

"Would like to return asap"

I didn't know the area, but heard about this hotel through another person would recommended them. I would also recommend them, and would like to make an excuse to return again. Friendly on arrival and throughout, really fast service (and the food lives us to the hype), rooms were lovely and I cannot say any fault to be honest. You have to stay and see for yourself as I haven't covered it all here.

Would recommend to a friend.
