This hotel has recently been facelifted and it showed. All areas were smart and clean. The bedroom was tastefully decorated with good facilities - HD TV, USB power supplies, large shower cubicle and air conditioning. Evening meals were good basic cuisine. Complimentary breakfast was buffets style and very good. Ample car parking and easy access from just off the A27.... More

There is plenty of parking and its right by major roads but not much else. They have a very limited bar which would be more understandable if they were near lots of other places where you could drink but they are not.

On arrival the staff were helpful, polite and clearly well trained. Our rooms were amazing - spotless, modern and the bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was good, especially the sausages. Overall, for the price, this is a great find and will certainly return. Thank you for making our weekend very pleasant.
