Travellers' Choice
Set in rural Sussex, in the shadow of the South Downs, this exceptional family run free house is a joy to behold.In Bramber village (Best kept village in South East England multiple years) The Castle Inn Hotel and Conference Centre sits in magnificent splendour. The front of the Inn is bathed in glorious summer hanging baskets, meticulously cared for.To the rear is an English garden that, quite literally, takes your breath away. Packed with almost every plant imaginable for a garden there are a few surprises in store, such as the Strawberry and Tomato plants that seemingly go unnoticed until their juicy red fruit appears. Tranquillity best describes the atmosphere as you sit back and relax, only to be replaced by awe and wonder as Mr. and Mrs. Swan glide effortlessly passed on the stream, not five feet away, with their half a dozen signets

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.

Delicious roast lamb had by two of us and I had a fabulous fish and coconut rice dish which was cooked perfectly. Bread and butter pudding was really good and rich too. Very nice waitress service. Can’t fault it. A large but pretty dining room and a garden area too.

The hotel is situated in Bramber and very easy to get to – I just tooled down the A24 after seeing friends in Surrey, for most of the way, and there was no problem about arranging a later check in time than I had first stated. It was easy to find Eunha a decent carpark. The staff are young polite and very helpful. One even offered to carry my bags upstairs. The food was very good – I had a beef pie with vegetables all very fresh . almost more than I could eat! The room was large, clean with a comfortable bed and a decent shower. The £57 I had paid for the night included breakfast, which again was very good with locally sourced sausages. Vegetarian options would’ve been no problem. Altogether very pleasant and I think a considerable bargain.

Breakfast being included in the price made this a very reasonable priced stay. The room was warm & cosy. The bed was comfy. The shower had good pressure & stayed at a relatively warm temperature. Sky TV in the room with access to Sky Movies. Direct access to the bar meant I could take my drink to my room with me when they closed up without having to go out in the cold. The staff were welcoming & friendly.

Enjoyed a very comfy stay. Room was on the small side but did not feel claustrophobic there is plenty of storage space and amenities. Bed was nice and comfy and there were spare pillows in the wardrobe. Full sky TV including sports and movies was an unexpected bonus and was very well appreciated. Had dinner in the bar in the evening, food was good and quite a few menu options. Having breakfast included is always good, breakfast times are quite early (7:30-9:15) compared to other hotels. Staff were friendly, tea/coffee/juice/cereal and toast is stationed in the corner of the room. I was slightly disappointed with my breakfast, I went for the “full breakfast” which had a menu price of £12 when it arrived it was 1 sausage, 1 slice of bacon, 1 hash brown, 1 egg and a small portion of beans. I did expect it to be larger for the cost on the menu (breakfast was included in the room rate) our party also had eggs Benedict and poached eggs on toast which were both good. With free car parking down the side of the hotel it was a good value and comfy stay. If I was in the area again I would return.

The food was EXCELLENT with an extensive menu. Cooked breakfasts were exceptional. The welcome was very warm and friendly. The decor is a little tired and there was a strong drain/damp smell in some of the passage areas.

Came here with friends for a Christmas meal, and omg, was it yummy. Lewis, the chef, your food is out of this world. The roast beef was cooked to perfection. It has a lovely, friendly feel thanks to the staff that work here. Definitely be visiting again and would highly recommend.

I had a fine large room and although a disabled room was not requested I do happen to be disabled and the room was outstanding. It was warm, spacious, clean and well well appointed. The bar meal in the evening was excellent as were the staff and similarly the breakfast could not be faulted. My only dissappointment was not booking another night.
