“Lovely luxury hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Not sure why this hotel is not 5* ! Excellently located on Goodwood site . . .5 minutes walk from rear of hotel and we were at entrance to Festival of Speed!
Slightly disappointed with choice and quality of food in Bar on Sunday night, but more than made up for by SUPERB breakfast in Richmond Restaurant on Monday morning. Excellent leisure facilities. Professional and helpful staff in all areas. Would definitely stay again, maybe when rooms are 'normal' price and not premium rate due to Festival of Speed (+£300.00 per room per night).
Thank you to the Goodwood Hotel Team,

Stayed again for just one night at the end of FOS
Again it was fantastic
The room was lovely - I had a slight problem with the bath/shower - but the was sorted within minutes
All the staff are great and well motivated - nothing is too much trouble
Supper in the restaurant was 5* as was the service
Breakfast - again - great - very relaxing and great service.
This is one of my favourite hotels - I'm glad we live close by!

Although only a 2 day/ 1 night stay, I couldn't have been more impressed with the hotel, its facilities but more than anything the professionalism, quality and friendliness of the staff. The golf course ( Downs ) was excellent despite a delayed tee time.

We went as a group booking for a golf weekend.
The hotel was very good in all areas including service, food, and rooms.
The only disappointing thing over the weekend was the marshall on the golf course of the hotel golf course .When we arrived we were told in an abrupt manor that slow play was not allowed and it would not be tolerated by the course.
This lead to all of us feeling like it was now speed golf and when we were told we were behind time we could not go any faster due to having to wait for the groups in front.
There was even an occasion when the marshall shouted out for anyone wanting drinks just as one of us was about to hit the ball causing him to mishit his shot into the heavy rough. We were then told by the marshall we did not have time to look for the ball as we were behind time.
After telling him it would not have happened if he timed his shouting out for drinks he then sped of in his buggy. Even though we were then left alone for the rest of the round it still left a bad taste.
The next day on the downs course I mentioned the incident in the pro shop and we had a much more enjoyable day.
Unfortunately due to the incident with the marshall it is very unlikely we will be visiting this hotel and course again which is a big pity as everything else was very good value and the staff at the hotel were friendly with excellent food.

GoodwoodHotelManager, General Manager, Golf at Goodwood at The Goodwood Hotel, responded to this review, 3 July 2014
Thank you for your feedback regards your golf break here at Goodwood. As you may well be aware ‘speed of play’ is a significant issue within golf at present. We at Golf At Goodwood are trying very hard to encourage our Members and our Guests to be aware of their ‘speed of play’ in order to maintain the maximum enjoyment for all that play golf here. Clearly on this occasion we have overstepped the mark as to how we manage this and for this I apologise. I can assure you the vast majority of feedback we get is positive about our service levels and our staff and I would welcome the opportunity to discuss your experience further. Please can I ask you to contact me on 01243 755171 at your convenience.

Corporate guest going to the horse racing. Check-in excellent. Room rather small and gloomy because of small window but well furnished with superb bedding. Breakfast first class with individually cooked 'full-english'.

Room Tip: There are so me rooms with small terraces and french windows

We would just like to thank all the staff, including Front Desk and restaurant for our amazing stay this week. We were put in our favourite room and had a very happy three night stay with excellent breakfasts and wonderful food in the restaurant. We look forward to our next visit next month. Thank you.
