Nice looking hotel from the outside but that's where it ends. Had to ask the bar staff to check in as the hotel entrance was closed, the bar although pretty with its Victorian style stained glass lamps and brass fittings it didn't smell very nice. After check in I looked around the room and discovered the filth and dust all...

Building is quite old but really really nice to look. The advantage is that the hotel is situated directly opposite the railway station. Breakfast was good and there was plenty to choose from. Room was big and really comfortable. Staff were really nice and friendly.

Very old building and a shame that it's been left for so many years just getting worst and worst , the clientele is very much bottom standard and this shows with the lack of investment clearly needed to be made to restore this historic building

Stayed here whilst visiting a friend in Worthing, chose based on its location I found a superior room great value at just £84 including free breakfast. I believe that being opposite the station in its hay day this was the hotel to stay at. Now renovated to its former glory its Victorian bar and oak panelled corridors are set off...

I stayed here nearly 4 years ago and said I'd never stay again because of the uncomfortable bed (had to sleep on top of the duvet as the springs were digging in) and the noisy nightclub next door, miserable staff and unappetising breakfasts. BUT!!! I chose to go back again last week, primarily because: a) it was the cheapest I...

Spent a working week staying in the grand. The bar was special for the architectural character with Terrific beer. Hotel needs some improvement and modernisation but staff were very helpful and enthusiastic. Meals and breakfast were good value and no complaints. Parking in evening was no problem, but during the day not sure as it can be busy due to...

I imagine this hotel was probably nice in its day, but alas it's now somewhat past its prime. The bar area, which you have to go to check in, is seemingly a fairly ropey meeting point for binge drinking locals. We feared the worst to be honest, so the fact the room was inhabitable was a welcome surprise. It was...

Arrived to find it was a very noisy venue with a disco banging away until midnight. Room condition was extremely tired (making allowances for the period decor) Bathroom and toilet weren't particularly clean. Paid quite a lot of money for a room which quite frankly was worth half the price at best. Staff at breakfast looked glum and miserable. Very...
