    Friendly and helpful staff. Good food and clean room

    Room didn't have air conditioning and although there was a fan it was still too hot. Had to keep the fan on all night so did not sleep very well.

    The hotel was very central to the shopping area of the city and the staff were extremely courteous and friendly. The restaurant was very stylish and the food excellent.

    We were in Room 2 which was very small for an eight night stay and lacked storage space. We also had a very noisy extractor fan in the bathroom which wasn`t sorted until the penultimate day of our visit. We also found our room was not serviced until late afternoon which was often difficult if we went back to the bedroom for a rest after lunch.

    Serve staff were excellent. Food was good and kitchen was responsive to substitutions. Able to walk to most parts of the town.

    Afternoon sun made the room very warm. There were some noisy bar guests outside on the street, but overall the hotel was quiet.

    Excellent rooms, recommend superior, warm welcoming staff and very good facilities.

    Breakfast was only fair as far as the cooked selection was concerned and felt less good value for money than equivalent level hotels.

    The bed was very comfortable and the staff were excellent. The location is first class and the food is just right. Free parking, right in the centre of Chichester. would I stay again? Yes, but I would go for a beer somewhere else.

    Bar prices are mind blowingly expensive, £12.30 for a pint and a G&T? Not good value but maybe that's London prices. I don't know, I'm from Melton Mowbray! (Wetherspoons round the corner, £4.20 same drinks,) The Hotel has no air con so is very hot in the summer. They provided a fan but you just waft warm air around the room.

    The refurbishment has been sympathetically done, retaining the lovely architectural features of the building. Beds are extremely comfortable and the staff are friendly and efficient. If you are a theatregoer there is no better place to stay when visiting the Chichester Festival Theatre; just a short walk away.

    Two rather grumpy seagulls decided to have a blazing row outside my window at 05.30! I do hope they patched things up.

    The welcome was excellent. Staff very attentive. Location good.

    The room although beautifully clean and well furnished was quite small with a tiny window over looking the kitchen roofs. It was very stuffy pneumonia the beautiful day we stayed. Although a fan had been left in the room it really was to noisey to leave on over night

    Breakfast excellent choices although the hotel was quiet. (It was a Sunday night stay) Decor and staff good.

    It was a hot day when we arrived and the staff had kindly opened the windows and put on a fan. The room fronted a road so when the blinds up privacy.was affected. This was not a major issue that perhaps aircon and nets or part cover of some sort could address. One point is that when we book through booking.com we are usually put at the furthest point from the reception or adjacent to stairways etc. This has happened on many occasions but does not reflect on the general good standard of the hotel

    Our room was very pleasant. When we come again we would prefer somewhere not so high up. The shower was a bit weak but all else was very pleasing and the food was exceptional.

    As mentioned, our shower lacked power!

    The refurbished ground floor rooms, the helpfulness of the staff and the general atmosphere of the hotel.

    We thought that our bathroom was very small, the door did not shut properly. It was supposed to be one of your best rooms We had to display our permission card in the car park but sometimes we could not park when half the cars were displaying no card. a .
