“Fun friendly restaurant meal”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Had a meal in the restaurant. It was really busy but we had a great experience. No long waits thanks to excellent service (Teresa). Good homely food, well cooked. I went with friends who know the area and recommended it. But good to book in advance, I think, especially on a Friday or Saturday.

Great interior, great staff, great meals (speaking as a Mediterranean food loving continental)... The whole environment (including other clients) gave me that real vacation feel, the full two days (plus an evening and a morning). The reason for not giving the fifth star, is the heat. Whatever temperature it was outside, inside, from bar to roof (where my room was situated right underneath), it was hot. As I heard one of the clients, who seemed to know the proprietor, say: he should install some airco! But all the rest... lovely! If the next Brompton World Championship is at Goodwood again (yes, I used to cycle from Bognor to Goodwood...), I'll definitely book here again, or at least try so!

As a single visitor, as expected I got a single room at the back. The room and en-suite was very clean, with lovely toiletries and the bedding and towels were lovely and white, it was strange seeing the shower in the bedroom as the en-suite was small. Had to have the windows shut at night as some machinery kept switching on and off and kept waking me up. A lovely selection at breakfast with cooked breakfast very well done. Staff very nice and very helpful and always had a quick chat. A lovely quiet area across the road from the beach, a little way out from the main resort, but a land train runs from right opposite the hotel to the pier if you don't feel like walking. I was only there from Friday to Monday, but would go there for a two week holiday. No wifi in rooms but told was in public areas, I managed to pick up internet in my room, so no need to take laptop downstairs.

Room Tip: Rooms at back don't have a view.

Cheap and cheerful hotel, with rooms above a busy friendly pub. As it's right on the beach road, we had a great view out over the sea; a small, internal balcony meant you could enjoy the view even if the weather was bad.
Our room was above the main bar in the pub, but as we were out quite late, we weren't bothered by any noise. The room itself was a little tired, and the bathroom was a strange shape which meant you had to squeeze past the shower to get in/out.
Breakfast was OK without being memorable. Service friendly in bar and hotel.
In summary, a good place to stay if you get a good price and don't plan on an early night.

We live within walking distance of this hotel and we used to go there quite often as they have excellent fish and most of it fresh. we stopped as the service became awful and it could take up to 1 hour to get your food. However we decided today to give it another try and once again the food was excellent but sad to say the service is no better and it took 40 minutes for our starter and 65 minutes for our main course and in spite of suggesting they at least talk to people, nothing happens, The amazing thing is that the restaurant was full, on a Wednesday! Not one of the staff asked if we enjoyed our meal so for the first time ever we did not leave a tip. At least 5 people complained about the wait but it makes no difference. What a shame.

The Navigator is in a convenient place on the seafront. My room was comfortable and clean and the breakfast was good. The people were friendly. I left feeling happy and rested and with the firm intention of coming back. Ideal for a short stay.

Never stayed here as it’s only down the road from us, we usually like to come here for a drink although this Sunday we decided to eat and both had the roast.
They had a good selection of meats and we certainly weren’t disappointed with the quantity or quality very tasty and well cooked.
The only annoying thing about our visit was that we chose to eat outside on the decking area which unfortunately is where everybody goes to smoke! Totally our own fault as we knew it was a smoking area so no complaints at all! It was a lovely meal.
