I wish that I had read the reviews before booking.
This was apparantly the last room available in the area, due to a "twinning convention" in in Worthing. Once visited, I can see why. The first impression of the hotel is quite good, although the car park is tiny, considering that there is a bar attached to the establishment.
Our room was a twin-bedded room, named Ginevrah, situated over the entrance and the lounge. The sound from these areas and the surrounding rooms was very pervasive, even when the television volume was increased. The bathroom, on first glance a definite wow factor with a fabulous slipper bath, was in fact a real heeath and safety hazard. There were two steps in the bathroom, which had a glass door (another hazard?). There was a step up to the hand basin and two steps to the bath. The space for your feet on the step before climbing into the bath was really small. I have restricted mobility and was aprehensive about using the bath. I should have been more concerned about using the over-bath shower. There was no independent temperature control and I had to wait for others to turn off taps before completing my task of simply washing my (very short) hair. The extractor fan in the bathroom was not working.
The decor in the room was very quaint, with good, comfy bedding. The fact that the property is quite old means that the floor was not level and the beds slanted towards the centre of the room. The advantage was that it made it easier to get out of bed.
The bar staff were very friendly. which is fortunate as we stayed in the bar, rather that spend time in our very noisy room. Breakfast was served in a very pleasant room and was varied and plentiful.
With some atention to soundproofing the rooms, i am sure that this would be a good, relaxing hotel, set in a good area.
