Beautifully appointed dining room with quirky, but elegant interior design. Interesting and extensive menu. Excellent food, efficient and well informed service. The only negatives - the limited number of wines available by the glass and the coffee, the quality of which needs reviewing. Tasted like a watery Gold Blend. Looking forward to returning to try the butcher's boards for two.

We were fortunate to be introduced to this hotel as we attended a wedding there: excellent venue, friendly service and fantastic food. Food is really excellent: the gravad lax, the locally sourced lamb and breakfast. Locally sourced of the highest quality and clearly a great chef & kitchen team.

I wouldn't say that The Goodwood Hotel is the best at one particular thing but what it does do is offer an all round package that is hard to rival.

Really loved our stay. The staff were very welcoming and very professional. Comfy beds, decor is classic with lovely heritage colours. Dusk ramble through the grounds of the country estate was magical. Delicious supper and breakfast. Good equipment in gym. Richmond Arms closed for refurb so looking forward to seeing that on our next trip. Thanks for a super-relaxing stay.

This hotel describes itself on its website as a place where you can find "pure relaxation and indulgence". In our experience, it fails to live up to its claims. We were given the wrong room, and our second 'correct' room was very cold. The restaurant was friendly but chaotic - in the quality of service, and in the many discrepancies... More

Nice hotel in Chichester area. Friendly stuff, good food+very good breakfast, comfortable beds, nice pool area and -in case you like golfing- the golf course directly outside. The rooms are a bit odd and you might get lost a few times due to the unusual architecture. Will come back.

Got the email highlighting the new autumn menu in the bar and grill to much fanfare, it came with a lovely picture of a burger packed with their cheese mayo and a basket overflowing with fries.
