“Small but perfectly formed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Looking for somewhere to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary I decided on an away night, a dinner, bed and breakfast deal. But where? We had spent a happy day in Arundel many years ago, more than 36! Looking on the local website for a hotel The Town House looked good and although not cheap did mid-week deals so I booked us in, not the suite but the next size down.
On arrival we were not disappointed, small but ornate dining room in the entrance, popular with locals and, on this occasion, race goers to Goodwood.
Our room was comfortable although it didn't have the best view available - not a problem as I didn't plan to spend time looking through it. The only downside was the bathroom, so rare these days not to have a shower, even if it is over the bath, this one only had a hand held shower. No worries, it was only for one night.
Our dinner was delicious, we had, and would recommend, the Chateaubriand steak . The speciality though is fresh local lobster and crab.
Dessert came to the table, and my wife's was on a large plate with Happy Anniversary in piped chocolate with red balloons piped on to add a bit of colour, a delightful touch by owner/chef Lee.
Breakfast was served by Lee who is a great character, I went for the full English to see me through a day of touring the castle etc.
Would we go back? Oh yes

Room Tip: Our room didn't have a great view but other rooms do, especially the suite I believe.

We stayed in the new family room. Loverly spacers room, two bedrooms top floor apartment. My two boys loved there separate room, and the main bedroom was very spaces. Great touch having children's DVDs to watch. Highly recommend this place, also the breakfast is a great start to your day!

Stayed here just one night - but enjoyed my large, lovely room overlooking the front street. Clean, comfortable, charming, historic décor, friendly people... what more could you want? Convenient for walking all over town.

We were welcomed with friendly smiles and treated like good friends for a weeks stay in the BEST bed and breakfast. After a night in a beautiful room, the day began with a wonderful breakfast cooked to your special request and conversation about how to spend the day in West Sussex. Lee, Katie, Paul and Donna were always ready to answer our questions and make helpful suggestions.
The highlight of the day was returning to The Townhouse for dinner. Always fresh,local, in season, full of flavor, presented with a cullinary flair, the dinners were prepared and served with a passion.
If you are looking for a little piece of heaven, this is the Best !!

Spent 3 days during the Goodwood Festival of Speed enjoying the location and ambiance of the Town House. The team are great, welcoming and offer excellent service.

The range of food available at breakfast (cooked to order) is diverse and the early morning repartee with Lee is always a good way to start the day.

Pre booked evening dinner always delicious.

Rooms are clean and tidy, bed comfortable.

The hotel is well positioned for Fontwell and Goodwood.

Parking during the day is sometimes a challenge but paid parking is available close by.

Lee and Katie run a great small boutique "hotel" right opposite Arundel Castle on the High Street. We love this place, so well run and offering the best of food inbSussex. Lee is a master of the art of the best cooking. He is a real lover of food and it shows in his presentation and skilled dishes. His dinners and breakfasts are so very very wonderful. Chichester lobster is often on the menu and he prepares it to perfection. The Town House is a definite "must stay, must eat" place to come to while visiting West Sussex.

Room Tip: Back rooms are quieter
