“Only the grounds”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

The castle is now a hotel, so only saw the grounds and outside of the castle. It is very pretty. I would love to spend the night there but it is very expensive.

“Wonderful lunch in a lovely Downland setting”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

There's only one word to describe the lunch I had here with a friend from the US - Exquisite! This is one of the best meals I have EVER had, and excellent value for money.

“A Magical Weekend”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

This was a dream, realized. Wow is an understatement. My partner Asia was totally speechless and I have to say there were a few tears. We stayed in the Chichester Room. Words cannot describe it. The bed the room, the bed the bathroom the bed the bath. All fantastic. So peaceful and relaxing. The grounds took us 3 hours to explore and photograph and like the rest of the castle were perfect. Dinner was delicious and having spent 20 years as a chef I have to say the head chef is certainly going in the right direction. I could write for hours on this place but as Asia said, "This is somewhere you must visit once in your life".A big thank you to all of the fabulous staff who made the weekend perfect.

“Genuine and special castle even by English standards!”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

On this occasion I was there for lunch, but on a different occasion attended a fabulous wedding reception The lunch and service were lovely - and glimpsing the rooms - I'd say a stay would be a real treat. This castle is fabulous and fulfills everything I would envisage from a story-book castle. It's not an empty shell, it is a living, breathing bit of history where old and new blend seamlessly - so you have the history without the inconvenience of 1,000 year old life-style! . The approach to the castle sets the scene - a jaw droopingly surprise. The castle is huge and imposing with furnishing/touches to match, right down to the white peacocks! The surrounding countryside is also gorgeous.
