“Great service and warm surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

We stayed for two nights and found the hotel very comfortable and the staff atentive with a smile which adds to the smooth running of service. The food is good to very good but sometimes little things let it down from being excellent but there were some very nice touches too.
Well done to all

Stayed for a single night and had a really lovely stay. Staff were great throughout, being the right blend of friendly and professional. Accommodation was good, comfortable and clean.

Food was where things excelled though, and it's easy to see why A Arms had a growing reputation where dinner is concerned. Excellent flavours throughout from canapés (which were particularly good) through to petit fours, served with well matched, at times perfectly matched, selection of wines.

Delightful bar and lounge areas for afternoon tea, pre dinner drinks, or coffee.

Location worked well for us, allowing easy access to some lovely country walks, but with the A30 a little over a mile away.

My partner and I stayed at your hotel last night and I must say how well we were treated. From reception, where we experienced smiles and warmth on our arrival, to the lady who served us tea, we certainly felt special. Our dining experience was amazing. Excellent food, served with real care and attention to detail.Wouldn't hesitate to recommend your hotel to all my friends!

Room Tip: Garden facing room, extra £10 but bigger and well worth it.

Last night we stayed at this wonderful Hotel, could not fault anything. Our stay included:- tea and cake on arrival, canapes and champagne before a 5 course taster meal, first class food and service. Would definitely recommend a stay here.

We stayed here on a package which was tremendous value and really enjoyed the break. We had room 3 which was delightful once we had got the heating sorted out. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was delicious. We left one or two comments on the feedback card and before we were even home, had received an email thanking us.

Room Tip: Room 3 was lovely - faced the back and had a small sitting room.

Thank you for your review.

I am pleased that you enjoyed Room 3 during your anniversary. The extra space and sitting area is appreciated by many. It has just been completely refurbished and is a firm favourite with our regular guests.

Yours

My partner and I have just spent a weekend at the Arundell Arms for the first time but it will definately won't be the last time.

The staff were probably the friendliest and polite I've ever been served by.

The food was awesome.

The hotel could be put under the category of 'looking tired and will soon need a refurbishment' however, it was still a tranquil and relaxing place to spend a weekend. The sitting room and its open fire was almost too comfortable; my partner fell asleep in one of the settees.

Thank you to everyone at the hotel and we'll see you again soon.

Room Tip: Room 21 is good. It's at the end of the building and is very quiet

Dear Andy W,

Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review and it is wonderful that you enjoyed the hotel, food and welcome.
As you realise, the hotel is 300 years old and needs constant attention. We are doing the sitting room next and already the new curtains are up. I hope that you like the look of them on your next visit.
