“Motor sport hotspot”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

From the moment we booked in and until our departure, all the staff were really helpful and friendly. Sadly we were unable to book a table in the restaurant, but this was our own due to the short notice of our trip.

A nice surprise hidden in the South Downs. Beautiful place, and nice big rooms. The bed is amazing and very big. Love the small details in the rooms with cars and books. Very cute. The staff was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was great.

A lovely hotel (shame about the grey walls throughout though). A wonderful stay - highly recommended - especially the food. The only complaint would be that the room doors appear to close quietly and then slam at the last inch with a loud bang, but everything else was extremely positive and this hardly needed a mention except I needed to put in more characters in this text!

I would unreservedly recommend the Goodwood Hotel as everything about our stay was exceptional from the hotel location, facilities and services. The stand out was the absolutely wonderful food served by the hotel. It was a truly memorable stay and I cannot wait to return.

Almost perfect but a few silly imperfections such as 'marshmallow' pillows, no grapefruit at breakfast, eucalyptus body wash and empty coffee pack in drinks basket. Breakfast very nice but it would have been lovely to have had Eggs Benedict !

The Goodwood is a very well managed hotel, with staff who display a high degree of professionalism. The location is in beautiful countryside - but the hotel is not exactly what it seems. Promotional photographs carefully imply a small lovely rural hotel - and whilst it is lovely and it is rural it is quite a large hotel, geared up for business and small conference use as well as leisure. The attached spa and health club is also popular locally, so it can be surprisingly busy in the large car parks.
None of which are really criticisms, as it's a lovely place; the rooms are modern, well furnished, clean and comfortable, the restaurants are good, and the staff charming and well trained. Overall a very pleasant hotel and we shall return!

I've got to be careful as I write this review since the food was delicious and the staff excellent and attentive, but there was something about our stay that wasn't quite right.

It might have been that the room wasn't as nice or as grand as I thought it should be. It might have been that the pool was full of children so was difficult to use - in fact we didn't even bother to go in since we wouldn't have enjoyed it. It might have been that the Goodwood Bar and Grill was more like a Costa Coffee than a dinner venue - I just can't pinpoint it!

We dined in the fine dining restaurant and the food was delicious - we even saw the chef picking his fresh herbs from the garden. Breakfast too was very enjoyable and we got to use the gym and pool at 7am when they were almost empty.

There is a lot of walking through corridors at this Hotel and the ceilings have water stains and in places the carpets are tired. I was led to believe from the web page on booking that we were to stay in a refurbished superior room - ummm our room seem to have been overlooked if this was the case.

Ladies - take your own hairdryer - if you want to use the one in the room you need to hold down a button for the duration - #fingercramp #tedious #annoying!

Overall food delicious, hotel not quite up to scratch - sorry Goodwood I just expected more .

Have fun when you stay - we all like different things and you may just love it.
