    Very classy. We are not used to this kind of thing as it is usually outside our price range, so it was nice for a change to stay in a beautiful place and for it to not break the bank. We love Chichester of course. The staff were very accomodating, letting us get into our room early and allowing us to park early as well as beyond 11 on the day of our departure. This was much appreciated.

    The noise off the high street at night meant that we didn't sleep very well. I guess there may be other roooms where this is not so much of a problem. it didn't ruin our stay but it was a negative factor. I think there was some building works going on across the street - at 4am!

    Lovely light spacious room. Lovely mix of old and new. Very Central and had a great undisturbed nights sleep in the comfy bed - which could have been improved with a firmer non feather pillow, but that could be my preference. Fantastically close to Festival Theatre - the purpose of my trip

    Waiting Staff at Breakfast could be improved by welcoming and showing you to a table - explaining that the depleted continental breakfast was not the only option and point out that an array of freshly cooked items were available too. On realising this we ordered, only to have to clear toast and cereal plates away so the waitress to place the lovely cooked option on the table - I am all for mucking in, but to then leave the used items on the now cluttered table is inexcusable. Especially as there were only three other diners in the restaurant. Apart from paying my bill, this was my tainted last impression of the hotel.

    The bar area, We thought it was a very social place, If we lived in Chichester we would use it a lot. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The hotel is Fully flexible for both mature people and young people alike. On the whole a jolly good place to stay if you want to explore Chichester.

    The up/down of stairs, healthy but not that good with luggage. But any changes would spoil the ambience of lovely old building

    Location,car park and overall friendliness of staff. Breakfast was good and we ate in the restaurant for our evening meal, with our daughter who had just graduated ,and this was also very good.

    Fabulous

    Stayed for one night for university graduation. Efficient check-in/out. Comfortable well-appointed room, with good quality bed/linen and tasteful decoration in both bedroom and central areas. Good service in bar - didn't eat dinner at hotel. Breakfast was adequate as we had inclusive deal, otherwise it would have been pricey. Attractive hotel, conveniently situated for Chichester Festival Theatre, University and shops.

    All very pleasant but only what one should expect for the price.
