The bed was really comfortable. The toiletries were luxurious

The only thing I can think of is the hight of the fixed shower head in our bathroom. I had to duck down a bit to be able to stand under it. (I'm 5ft10)
We arrived really late (11pm) and staff waited for us to allow us to check in. Great location close to Goodwood aerodrome which reresulted in us seeing several old timer aircrafts come past. We didn't get to try the restaurant but if the food is anything like our full English breakfast, I would advise anyone to try it.

Only thing may be that we could hear the television of the room next door.
The warm welcome, the idyllic location, the genuine hospitality - a far more personal experience. Excellent atmosphere in the restaurant at night and a really relaxing weekend.

room was outside from main hotel
March 11, 2015
Service charge being added to evening dinner without being told until the bill arrived. Difficulty with bedroom door keys - we were not the only ones.
Staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Great choices for breakfast.

On second night we were given a table in the restaurant which was very sqeezed Chairs below height of adjacent tables which felt uncomfortable and claustrophobic Mentioned to staff at the time but no action
Food in restaurant and wine menu excellent Room very comfortable and excellent bsthroom

Restaurant was lovely but it was a little pricey and charged a compulsory service charge (there were only 2 of us)
Beautiful little cottage to relax in during the day and night. Good value for money through booking.com.

We didn't know that access to the room was via an outside metal staircase - although lit, felt a bit dodgy in the dark. The bath was on a wooden plinth which felt slippery getting out after shower or bath and there was no handrail on the wall.
Very friendly and helpful staff; comfortable, well-equipped and tastefully furnished room; nice spacious bathroom;delicious food.

It would be advantageous to know in advance that the site is on a slope , both entrance access routes on an icy night were hazardous. The outdoor stairs to bedrooms was particularily alarming! It would also have been helpful to know about very steep stairs, albeit with good hand rails each side , and downstairs loo in the cottage. Overbath shower here not possible for me to use.
As itemised above well equipped rooms in the main house. The cottage we used was extremely well equipped and comfortable.

Nothing, everything was perfect that weekend...
All the staff were amazing..Food and wine over dinner along with our crazy guests were amazing. Bartender even went out of her way to give us a lift up the street so I didn't have to walk in my heels because no cabs were available at that time. Next visit we will definitely be staying here again.

Room was a bit small and limited wardrobe space, but that's simply a petty gripe!
Great Pub/Restaurant, super staff, terrific location.
December 15, 2014
We needed a local base for Goodwood House and the Royal oak served our needs extremely well. Staff were excellent, we didn't use the restaurant for dinner but the breakfast was very good

Nothing not to like !
The Bed was really comfortable, the shower was really powerful, the towels lovely and thick. Really nice toiletries, in fact everything was great quality. Was great having a fridge in the room, and lovely complimentary biscuits. The restaurant food was delicious, I had the venison, which i would highly recommend.

Not ideal for a traveller with international size luggage. Car park is across the road and room has outside stairs for access.
Food, friendly staff, dining room, breakfast

Wifi was not strong enough in the room. Spiders in the corridor.
Great food - Good dinner menu with a vegetarian options and wine selection. Many breakfast options ranging from Full English to fresh fruits. Friendly staff. Comfortable room with great bed and very clean.

Standard double rooms with ensuite very small. Distinct lack of storage space and worktop space in bathrooms. Had to change rooms as 1st room was extremely airless...plus it had a plumbing problem. Restaurant surprisingly over priced. Breakfast very amateurish.
Position & atmosphere

bit pricey … but great accomadation on the edge of the downs .
every thing really nice , good food , good standard of room .
September 20, 2014
Unfortunately our room was disappointing, small and cramped, no drawer space and inadequate hanging. There was constant noise from kitchen extractor fans situated a few feet from window. No ventilation in bathroom. We would recommend this as a place to stay but with a different room. Some of our comments reflect our disappointment with the room.
Good food and excellent service. The position of the inn is very good for exploring surrounding area. Also very good out door eating spaces at the inn. The bed was very comfortable with good quality sheets. The bath towels etc. were good quality.

The food, the location, the room (although why the cushions).
September 11, 2014
Thinking too hard about this so if I could think of anything it would be very minor....
The location, the welcome, the room, the food ... All the boxes were ticked!

Very comfortable room, beautiful surroundings. Welcoming attentive staff. The food was fantastic. We had dinner there on two nights and breakfast each morning. Just really great food.
