I found this hotel online and my first opinion was that it was reasonably priced and good location in Chicheseter. However I was very disappointed. I arrived with my friend in the afternoon and the first thing that hits you is the smell of strong CHLORINE from the swimming pool which is located in the Reception area! Not only can you see in to it but the heat was also evident from the pool, apart from the awful smell. The restaurant is located in the Reception area as well, so you can smell the chlorine in there as well!
The rooms we were given were not very clean (all the drawers were dusty and I had to wash them out so I could put my clothes away). The car park at the back was right on top of the hotel so if you had a ground floor room, you would literally be looking right in at the driver who was parked there and he or she could see right into your room!
You can hear people snoring from the next room and any kind of noise as well.
We were on the first floor but it was extremely noisy with vans being unloaded at the back at all times and also the noise of an extractor constantly going at the back, which must have been for the swimming pool! Scant toiletries in the bathroom and no flannel. The towells were old and worn but clean but I had one with black marks on it. The toilet paper was not replaced the next day, nor were the tissues and I had to ask for them.
The bar area had loud TV on showing football everynight. In the morning at breakfast, we were sat at a dirty table full of crumbs. When I asked the waiter to clean it, he picked up my paper napkin and brushed all the crumbs into my lap, giving me a dirtly look and then took the napkin away and did not replace it. The breakfast was a buffet type and all the food was greasy and cold.
My friend had a kettle in his room that did not work and when he told reception, they brought him another one, which also did not work!!
When we went to pay at the end of our stay, they could not find our booking and were wanting to charge the wrong price, not the discounted rate we had been given.
Needless to say I would NEVER stay at this hotel again.
