Stayed here in August 2010 and booked on laterooms.com paid £49.50 for 2 in a double ensuite room with breakfast. When we arrived we had to park on the grass as the gravel car park was full (just before we arrived people had arrived for a funeral wake). The receptionist was polite and helpful but she seemed new and didn't see my special requests (ground floor room mobility problem, no potpouri or feathers, due to allergies). The booking was then taken over by a tall man (don't know his name) who had a funny attitude...I explained that I could not do a lot of stairs and did request a ground floor room and when he looked at the booking he saw that these had been requested (being a country manor there are no lifts). Our room was then changed to ground floor and we had Kybo (all the rooms are named after race horses). The bedroom was a good sized, curtains, bed cover in floral design, with windows overlooking a grass area (where we had to park). Room itself had a dressing table with mirror, tv, tea coffee making facilities. Good bed, it was very comfortable and had a good night's sleep. Bathroom was a very good size and had a bath with a shower over (although the shower was problematic, it didn't produce much water at all). Complimentary shampoo, conditioner, etc supplied. When we got to the room there was only one set of towels but soon we had towels for us both and I asked that the potpourri be taken out of the room because it causes me allergy problems the manager had a funny attitude over that!
In the evening we had dinner in the pub (Snooty Fox adjoining the hotel). There was a varied menu including some specials. It was a small pub, but with great food and wonderful service. Our meals were scampi which came with chips and a salad (I requested no peppers and this was adhered too, I also requested a seperate dressing, ie for me to dress the salad and again this was done). The other meal was sausages and mash with gravy and it looked very nice (I was told it was very tasty!), for desert I had cheese and biscuits and the other desert was treacle sponge and we had a bottle of Rose wine. Dinner was about £46 (the wine was £16 of the £46)
Breakfast was in the bar although the Manor has a restaurant so it surprised me to be in the bar area, but the breakfast was nice. There was a choice of yoghurts (if you are vegetarian they do natural yoghurt that is suitable), plus there was grapefruit segments and some fresh fruit (apples, oranges), cereal, juice (all help yourself). Cooked breakfast was served (no vegetarian sausages) but choice of how eggs are done, sausages, bacon, fresh tomato half, mushroom. Very nicely cooked. Tea/coffee and toast is brought to your table. there was also fish etc available on the menu.
Check out.....we went to check out and the manager (I presume manager, very tall man) was quite arrogrant, ie could we pay now before we had a chance to check the bill (I always check the bill before paying) as he was busy! Its not the attitude one would expect at such a place!
Internet access it does state available in some public areas and bedrooms, however I couldn't pick up wifi at all and used my mobile stick.
Despite his attitude I would stay there again if needed accommodation in the area. Findon is small but has a few eating places including 2 or 3 pubs, its about 4 miles from Worthing.
