It's difficult to write a review of somewhere like the Old Railway Station and add anything that hasn't been said before! We visited last year for tea and cake with friends who live locally, and I have been wanting to stay here ever since. I took the opportunity of my husband's birthday to book a one-night stay in one of...

It is difficult to write this without using superlatives and clichés and repeating what others have said but it really is the most wonderful place to stay, whether you are a train buff or not. The setting is lovely, the carriages magical, the staff friendly, the breakfast sublime. It makes the perfect venue for a birthday or anniversary treat and...

My wife and I spent the night in a carriage last week at the Old Station. We were booked in by our adult kids as part of our Golden Wedding celebrations. The whole experience was wonderful from the courtesy of the staff to the excellence of the converted carriage which was absolutely spotless. We loved the afternoon tea and the...

We were given this experience as a present, and it was absolutely great. We had afternoon tea when we got there, served in the restored waiting room - trust me, you've never seen a railway waiting room so stylish. We found the service very friendly, and the accommodation excellent, warm, comfortable and, well, quirky. But you don't have to be...

What a lovely unique place to take your afternoon tea. So rich with history, it's a truly fascinating location. Beautifully restored and maintained with an open fireplace, comfy lounge chairs, plenty of interesting reading material, we ended staying all afternoon sat in front of the fire, reading about the history of the railways. We were made to feel very welcome,...

Sunday tea for some of the family,4 adults 2 children. Waiting room where the tables are set up is very appealing with open log fire and leather armchairs for after meal reading. Unfortunately there was only one person serving and making the tea,but she did a very sterling job to provide an acceptable service. Cream teas,scones etc were good the...

We stayed here for a night in February 2017 after winning an overnight stay in a charity raffle. Even before we arrived the reception staff were more than helpful by allowing us to stay on a Friday when the prize was actually for a midweek stay. It's a hidden gem. A totally unique way of spending some time away from...

This was a surprise present. We stayed in a renovated 100 year old Pullman carriage-2 rooms per coach- with breakfast in the waiting room. On arrival tea in a leather chair by the fire. Accomadation with bath and shower, good linen, shutters and peaceful rural setting. Breakfast excellent. Highly recommended both as somewhere different but excellent even if you don't...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Widely acclaimed as Britain's most beautiful railway station, Petworth's former train station is now one of the country's most unusual destination hotels. Step back in time and enjoy a romantic and unique break in one of our restored Pullman railway carriages or stay in the old Station House. In summer, enjoy our fine breakfast on the platform, overlooking our exotic garden or, in winter, by a roaring fire in our former Waiting Room, with its 20ft vaulted ceiling.The Old Railway Station has something for every discerning traveller, looking for something different. ... more   less
