My partner and I discovered Hookwood while researching places to stay in West Sussex for a wedding reception we had been invited to and what a find it was!
Although a little tricky to find at first (a clearer sign for Hookwood at the entrance to the driveway would resolve the problem) we were warmly welcomed by Rose and her lovely dog Brush who both invited us into their beautiful home and made us feel extremely welcome.
The whole house is charmingly and lovingly decorated with lots of interesting individual pieces and has a real English, country home feel about it along with a stunning garden all of which Rose is happy to open to you and share during your stay.
Our double room with en-suite had an amazing double bed and was very clean and cosy. We slept soundly both nights with no disturbance - the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside was wonderful. We were then welcomed by Rose each morning with the most amazing breakfast selection; Rose will accomodate for all tastes and is a fantastic hostess. Each morning we had a lovely fruit salad followed by smoked salmon and scrambled egg on the first day and an English Breakfast the next. Both days accompanied by endless tea. Better than any hotel I have ever stayed in!
Rose is happy to assist you during your stay with recommendations to local attractions and places to eat. After a lovely day at Arundel (strongly recommend a visit) Rose suggested a local pub for dinner and kindly booked us a table. The pub was gorgeous and we enjoyed a fantastic, fairly priced meal. Such added touches really do make a short-break and are very welcomed when visiting a new place.
I would strongly recommend that you stay at Hookwood should you ever pay a visit to West Sussex as it is truly something special and beats any generic hotel.
