“Fab little find”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

I often stay down in Worthing on business in the week and I won't be staying anywhere else other than Bensons from now on. This place is a little pricier than other B&B's on the front but the hospitality, cleanliness and the many little 'extras' make it more than worth it. My room was very large and clean, with lots of toilettries in the bathroom, free fruit, fresh milk in the fridge for tea and coffee, chocolates on my pillow, plenty of fluffy towels. I was really impressed by the service of Chrissy who went out of her way to make sure I had all the information and everything I needed for my stay. Don't look elsewhere in worthing for this price bracket...

We chose to stay at Bensons for my birthday two years in a row. We stayed in The French Room and in The Coronet Room. Both were superb. The French Room was exquisite – gorgeous décor with a full view of the sea. We were stunned when we saw it! The Coronet Room was just beautiful, with a lovely garden view overlooking part of the South Downs…not to mention some of Millie’s cat rivals! We loved watching them from our comfy chairs, while drinking one of the many beverages so generously supplied by owners Chrissy and Wendy. We found the Guesthouse to be very tasteful and homey, and both ladies marvellous hosts. Breakfast was incredible – there is nothing they wouldn’t make for you. The fridges in the rooms were stuffed with goodies, far more than we had ever seen or expected. Chrissy and Wendy themselves were warm, courteous, accommodating and great fun, and Millie discreet, cute and gorgeous. Staying in was therefore as enjoyable as going out! The large town centre is only five to ten minutes away, and the beach is directly across the street. There is always a new restaurant nearby to try, as well as a lovely selection of pubs. So everyone should be kept happy.
Being treated to room decorations, cards, gifts and balloons on my birthday was a true joy, our hosts even singing to me and sharing the birthday cake!
Our experiences at Bensons Guesthouse have been amazing. We were treated wonderfully, and definitely plan to return. We therefore recommend it thoroughly, not only for its loveliness, but for Chrissy and Wendy, who are clearly so much more than exemplary hosts.

We had a wonderful stay at Benson's Guest House recently. We were so well looked after from the moment we arrived. We were made to feel so welcome and at home, we felt very at ease being there.

The attention to detail is something special. The food and drink were always hot, served on hot plates and beautifully presented. I particularly enjoyed the fact that my beans were served in a separate pot as part of the cooked breakfast so not to interfere with my egg. This is just one example of the type of special touches provided. Obviously lots of thought and effort is put into making your stay a special one. The room was wonderful clean and again lots of thought and effort is put into making it 'just so'.

I cannot recommend it highly enough. A big thank you to Chrissie and Wendy, perfect hosts.

We have just arrived home having spent a few days at Benson's for our anniversary.
We stayed in The Amber Room which had a most comfortable four poster bed and large bathroom.Extras such a water and drinks in the fridge and a bowl of fruit in the room just made that little difference to what you normally get and expect.
There was a very comprehensive choice at breakfast which left you set up for the day and nothing was too much trouble to make your stay the memorable.Benson's is one of the best Guest Houses we have stayed in and we will return.

Room Tip: The Amber room is great for a romantic stay

This three letting bedroom guest house is one of the best we have stayed in.and run by two extremely nice ladies Chrisie and Wendy,where nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are beautifully appointed with goodies replenished every day, complimentary red and white wine on arrival , fruit, plus a fridgeful of other suprises. The breakfasts are top class and really classy tableware makes the whole experience a pleasure.

Chrissy and Wendy are both welcoming and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the French room, lovely room clean bright and comfortable, good en suite, everthing you need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Breakfast was great, good quality produce well cooked, loads of choice.
Get and book as soon as you can, if you don't you are only missing out on what is undoutably a great find regarding B&B's in Worthing/West Sussex.
