The Moorings
Ranked #5 of 26 Worthing B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 August 2014

The rooms were beautifully decorated, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast very good. Sarah was very obliging, and went out of her way to make suit us. The road is quietish and pleasant but close to the seafront. The single room although small had a decent ensuite and all it needed.
Very good value for money.

We stayed at The Moorings for two nights with my elderly 'unstable' parents and from arrival to departure Sarah and her family were attentive, thoughtful and more than happy to help in any way possible. My parents had a ground floor room that they were more than pleased with and thoughtful 'extras' that couldn't compete with a high grade hotel. Thank you all so much and we hope to come back soon.

The only bad thing i can find to say about the Moorings is that it doesn't have a seaview, unless you lean out of the window and twist your head to the left !!.
We have stayed in a number of hotels and B&B's in Worthing over the years and this is by far the best. Sarah and her family are great hosts, willing to help and offer advice if needed.
Parking near the seafront in Worthing is always a problem but even that they have sorted by giving you a daily permit so you can park nearby. The rooms all look a good size and our room 6 was massive, double bed, seatee, free WiFi, TV and a great bathroom with a really big shower that had a powerful jet and spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was good, a choice of about 5 items, we had the full english which set you up for the day with good service mainly from Elizabeth who was very sweet.
If you want to stay in Worthing go to the Moorings we have booked again for next year already.

Room Tip: Room 6 was the biggest room but you pay more for it, but all the rooms looked good to me.

Despite the title, the moorings is a lovely bed and breakfast which hosts clean rooms, hot showers, a friendly staff, and quite a decent breakfast.

The wifi could be slightly faster and perhaps some of the carpet should be replaced, but other than that I cannot fault their hospitality or cleanliness. I have attended both hotel and catering school and give them very high marks.

My room smelled of wee or else they would have received the full honours they so richly deserve.

Was very impressed as soon as I entered. Lovely inviting and warming environment, brilliant host and service throughout! Very impressed with the size of the room, plus the added furnishings - the room was also spotless! Walking distance to all the major establishments, lovely views with only the sea a few minutes walk away. Lovely food - most definitely be coming here again! Excellent :)

Stayed for one night in May. Room was spotless & spacious and well equipped, Sarah was an excellent host too.Will return again if we get a chance.

Only down side. We found the room quite cold but having said that we come from a North Queensland climate so are not used to the UK's Spring which is much colder than our winter.

Breakfast was wonderful too.

A lovely welcome with lots of helpful information provided right from the start. Sarah is an excellent proprietor who takes real pride in her lodging. The furnishings are very much what you expect of a b and b in England with Victorian roots. The addition of two comfortable chairs was welcome. Our room also had a good table for doing work (unlike some b and bs we stayed in this one would be good for conducting business as there was enough space to spread out and do some work). Really nice breakfast selections and service. Local permits for parking were provided and parking was not too difficult. Close to the seafront.
