Visited for Goodwood Revival weekend and stayed Saturday/Sunday night. Nice place, right next to the Cathedral and about 100metres from the Castle (which is closed Mondays - pity). The hotel was reasonably priced, which they kept to, despite the event nearby as we had booked it several months ago.
(Unlike another hotel that gazumped us by doubling their rates and demanding a 4 night minimum stay, after accepting the booking. My review of that place was censored despite the fact that I had stayed there before).
We had one of the Motel type rooms adjoining. Could do with a bit of a tidy up, but perfectly adequate and comfortable nevertheless. Has the advantage of being able to park right next to the room. Handy for loading when it is raining. Pub was nice and staff welcoming and friendly. We ate there one night and had a good pub meal at a reasonable price.
Arundel is a charming little place, only about 10 minutes walk with a few good looking eateries even on a rainy Sunday night.
The only downside was that the Hotel had very recently changed hands and the previous incumbents had taken the credit card facilities with them leaving the unfortunate new owner with no means of accepting anything other than cash. It was a minor inconvenience, no more than that and I am sure it is probably sorted out by now.
Would I go there again. It would certainly be on the list, that's for sure.
