Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was lucky enough to be able to find this place for my 30TH birthday. The venue is incredible, Maria the host could not have been better at facilitating a visit before hand and answering all our questions. The venue itself was perfect, absolutely massive and brilliant for such a party. Everyone was able to stay, you couldn’t hear anyone and the beds were comfortable. If you’re looking for somewhere to host an event, this is it! Thank you again! We had the best time. Emma

We had a wonderful bank holiday weekend in 2021 at Sefton Place creating lots of memories and spending time with the whole family. We were extremely lucky with the weather and managed to enjoy the Veranda and lawn. The garden flowers were also looking beautiful and gave the place a lovely summer feel. The property itself was perfect for our group - The kids loved the games room and outdoor games and the dinning room was big enough for all of us to enjoy our meals together. We were really impressed with the wheelchair access around the house and disabled rooms and bathrooms. I have already forwarded your details to a couple of my friends in wheelchairs so the may be in touch.

Sefton House is in beautiful countryside and has everything that you could ask for in a venue. We had a party of 32 women for a hen do and there were enough beds for all. The sitting rooms were comfortable and spacious, the dining room large with an amazing elevated glass ceiling. The long table seated us all. There is tv , music playing equipment and a very large and well equipped kitchen. We had an amazing time and thorough recommend this gorgeous place and the delightful owner .

we stayed at Sefton Place for a hen weekend. There were 35 of us and we had a fabulous time. The property is clean, spacious and perfect for group activities, dining and fun. Maria, our host, was very helpful, facilitating a visit before we booked and making the whole booking process very straight forward. Sefton Place is situated in beautiful surroundings so there are opportunities to walk and enjoy the countryside as well. Although large, it felt warm, inviting and cosy, I would recommend the property and hope to come back again some day.

We have just spent a fabulous weekend here to celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary. I spent many weeks searching for a suitably large venue that could accommodate a large multigenerational group. Maria was extremely helpful throughout the process and could not have been more helpful. Our family gathering ranged in ages from 8 months to 89 years and Sefton Place was simply perfect. It is a beautiful building in a glorious setting and is extremely well equipped. The grounds were perfect for the 6 children to enjoy and there was a plenty of room inside too. The 11 en suite bedrooms, many of which are large enough for an entire family, were perfect for our needs. The splendidly large dining room was ideal for seating our 25 guests with ease. I cannot recommend it highly enough and would certainly be delighted to return!

Me and my family visited sefton place in August 2020. We were shown around very quickly and told to ring a mobile number if we needed anything. After Maria had shown us around. We looked around the rooms and realised the place was really old and had not been decorated. I am listing all the faults we found in this place. 1. Insects and other bugs in bedrooms and kitchen and toilets 2. Place has not been decorated for ages needed basic painting. 3. Most of the curtains were missing hooks or of the rails. 4. Some windows did not lock 5. Some beds were very uncomfortable 6. Main door to mansion is not very secure 7. Side door leading to kitchen from the veranda was broken must of had a break in at some point as frame was loose and door did not lock properly. When tested could open from outside. Not very safe when everyone is sleeping upstairs. 8. Games room was a mess nothing worked pool table was broken cues had no tips table was wonky and balls rolling everywhere. All board games has missing parts or ripped boards. 9. No activities for kids 10. WiFi only catches signal in certain parts of house 11. Outdoor activities equipment all broken or missing. 12.outdoor furniture totally rubbish. I could name more things which were not right about this Sefton place. And Maria tried to keep our deposit claiming we damaged carpet and kitchen. When we started to point out all the faults in her place she quickly refunded our deposit. But she was not happy about it. We told her she should replace broken items to make things better she was not happy with that either. I would not recommend this place as the hygiene level is low and not much to do apart from sleep. No proper games room TV room is rubbish and no swimming pool and all outdoor activities equipment is broken or missing. There is a better place in the same area 14 minutes away from Sefton Place. It has a proper games room and swimming pool and other features for the same price.

Response from Maria Whitehouse, Owner at Sefton Place - Sussex Heritage Centre
Responded 13 May 2021
I have only just seen this review and am astonished. What really happened was that I had no contact from the group until the group organiser, Saeeda, phoned shortly before they were due to leave. She had a list of spurious “complaints” and then said they wanted to extend their stay at no extra cost as compensation. I could not agree to this as our cleaning company were booked to come in shortly after the agreed departure time. They left the house in a terrible condition, including areas of the carpets covered with dried on Slime (a children’s play material). Saeeda was so abusive to me when I said I would deduct the extra cleaning charges from the deposit that I agreed to refund the whole deposit as I wanted no more to do with her.

We were delighted with our stay at Maria's property. She is a wonderful host who gives you complete privacy as a group, but is always on hand to help out when called on. The house is a beautiful country house with really good facilities. It's set in gorgeous countryside, away from the hustle and bustle in the green peace of the Sussex downs. Really lovely! Birdsong and sunshine. It's the best place we've stayed in as a group of friends doing our yearly gathering, and we will definitely be coming back next year. I didn't really know what to expect and I was really pleasantly surprised that it was beautiful.

The house was lovely, very old and maybe a bit tired in places but this was more than made up for by the friendliness of Maria when booking, and Sara who showed us around. The house was spotlessly clean and fully equipped. This is not a hotel but a self catering house to rent.

We hired Sefton Place over New Years and had an amazing time. The location has lots of great countryside views and is also very quiet with no road noise. It's only a short drive into Arundel town centre where there are lots of things to see and do. Sefton Place is a charming building which looks amazing when you first arrive. The dining room is huge and the kitchen was ideal for catering for a large group. There were lots of Christmas decorations and twinkly lights which made it very welcoming. The rooms are spacious and clean and there is lots of space for all the cars in the carpark. The garden was big enough for the all kids to run around and play football. Everyone had a great time and hopefully we will all get together and visit again.
