I would actually have rated this hotel as GOOD but Tripadvisor don't offer that category. The hotel staff are very friendly , polite and helpful. Cannot fault them. The hotel itself is pretty tired. It's meant to have been renovated but you could have fooled me. I used to live in Chichester and regularly frequented the bar and restaurant. Sadly...

The entrance hall is absolutely stunning so first impressions were good. The staff were very helpful and were more than happy to help us with the lift which was an experience in itself and added to the quirk charm of the hotel. We ate dinner in the restaurant which was beautifully decorated and the food was delicious. The bedroom was...

Didn't stay overnight but, judging by the meal, would definitely consider it. The meal was sensational and the staff very professional and courteous, with a great sense of humour. There were 5 of us and, so close to Christmas, it was very busy but this didn't affect the service one iota. We're planning to go back asap.

It took 18 minutes for a member of staff to take our order (we had a traditional afternoon tea).The food was good (three sandwiches and a wrap, two scones each, three sweet items)...

We stayed here as a birthday treat for me and what a treat it was. We arrived early but found that our room was ready so were able to book in and start our day in Chichester.

We met friends for lunch at this hotel a couple of years ago, and loved it, so decided to meet up with the same friends while they were over from France, on Tuesday 27th December.

Perfect location for the theatre with a decent sized car park. Rooms are well appointed and bed very comfortable. The lift is very old school with a concertina door and is a bit of an adventure. Pretty good value for the city centre location.

Stayed here for work as its right by the town center which was perfect. The staff were really friendly and the breakfast was one of the best breakfasts I've had in a hotel. The room was very clean, there was no traffic noise and there is a car park around the back.
