We have just returned from a weekend at this wonderful B & B. We arrived early but Nick showed us straight to our room. A lovely room with a view of the grounds and facing out to the South Downs, the room also had a balcony which we made good use of, there was even a heater in case it got chilly.
The hotel is on the edge of the town and a perfect location for peace and quiet. Breakfast is served in the restaurant either inside or out and we chose to sit outside the first morning. There is a wide selection to choose from, fresh fruit, croissants, cereal, yogurts, and of course a full English breakfast. We could see the Church and the green and people out enjoying the sunshine, even a family out early enjoying a game of cricket. The whole feel of the place was one of a "village" with a really community spirit.
After breakfast we were off on a walk when Nick appeared and offered us fresh fruit and water for our adventure which we accepted.
We ate in the restaurant in the evening and had the three course meal. Delicious freshly prepared food. So good that we decided to eat in again the second night.
The décor throughout has been carefully chosen and is a little dark and masculine for my taste but all works well. I would definitely recommend this hotel especially if you need to get away from it all and just relax. I'm sure we will return.
Thanks to Nick and his staff for making our weekend so enjoyable.
