We were looking forward to visiting the new look Ship and decided to go for lunch on a recent visit to Chichester. Having stayed in the previous incarnation many times, we were excited to see the changes. Sadly we left feeling like we had been in the way and were a nuisance. The service was non existent for the first...

We recently visited this hotel and ordered sandwiches and coffee. We had previously had a similar lunch and were very pleased with the service and presentation, however,this time we were disappointed with the way the sandwich was just plopped on a plate and a few nachos put in a small bucket. For a total bill of £23.00 for two sandwiches...

My husband took me away to this hotel for Valentine's weekend. We arrived at 12 on the Saturday and were told immediately our room was not ready. My husband said he requested an early check in and were told actually our room was ready! We then easily registered for our car parking (there were many spaces) and went to our...

Beware when booking with this Hotel as there are hidden surcharges not stated on the web. Spoiled an otherwise pleasant stay to be informed that we had a £25 sur-charge for a sofa bed we had not actually used. We booked a three bed room, and apparently if they had known we were three adults they would have made up...

We visited the restaurant on 3 Feb and had a delicious lunch in celebration of my birthday. The staff were very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. The food was amazing . When the bill was presented, the restaurant manager explained the computer could not handle the gift voucher that we presented so she adjusted it by hand. After we...

The hotel stands on a main street, it's a large Georgian townhouse and very attractive. I liked the reception area and the staircase, fresh flowers, light decor, very nice first impression. My room was at the top of the stairs opposite the lift, so I was a bit concerned about noise at first. However there is a small lobby space...

Easy to find, and very central location, warm welcome upon arrival. Room very clean and well laid out. Excellent selection at breakfast, and the young waitress was polite, and not overbearing. Nice layout, meant you weren't over crowded, and didn't feel rushed. Would recommend for business or holiday location, approx 12 minutes from train station.

Stayed for two nights on a mid week deal while visiting the theatre. Nice room with a view of the park behind. A little noisy at times but that was the public outside not the hotel and not to the level that it really bothered us. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast very nice and the dinner we had on one...
