I was with friends for a 3 night stay at Chalk Farm Hotel in Willingdon. The staff couldn't be more helpful, very friendly patient and careful to observe all the covid precautions. The rooms are charming in this 300 year old hotel, all had interesting features and are themed around George Orwell's Animal Farm. The building is nestled in the South Downs with a track up onto the hills right beside the hotel The breakfasts are delicious and, again, the chef could not do enough for us. Light lunches were also available at a reasonable cost I recommend this wonderful little hotel for a quiet, quirky interesting break on the Downs
Officially booked for 1 night but extended it to 2, we felt comfortable, room was clean and cosy Breakfast was lovely nicely cooked Staff who we met were friendly and helpful Definitely will visit again
The room was very much in need of refurbishment and did not look at all like the photos on the website. The entrance door to the room had an asbestos sticker on it which of itself is not an issue. However, there were multiple holes drilled in the door which could have dislodged the fibres - rather concerning. Also, we could not log on to the WiFi.
I and my Family have used Chalk Farm Hotel for large and small Family functions over the last few years and also Sunday lunch and afternoon teas in the Summer. We also had Christmas Day 2019 here this year which We thoroughly enjoyed and have always found the Staff courteous and helpful and have enjoyed the excellent food provided. Well done Chalk Farm.
Have lived locally for many years and have only recently become aware of Chalk Farm - what a beautiful setting. On arrival I was warmly greeted and shown into the bar area where I had arranged to meet my daughter. Delicious lunch was freshly cooked to order and we were served by a charming member of staff. On my way in , I noticed that there is also a nursery behind the hotel and I asked if it would be possible to have a look. One of the team kindly took me there and gave me a guided tour - lots of plants for sale and handy at this time of year to know that they sell Christmas trees! The atmosphere in this place is a very happy one which is lovely to witness . Will definitely return
