I do not understand why this gem is only a 3 star hotel. The staff were amazing, food in the bar tasty and really arrived really quickly. The room was clean, comfy had everything you need and had fabulous L'occutaine toiletries in the ensuite a really lovely touch. The rainfall shower was lovely after a long walk up on the South Downs which are just above the hotel Breakfast was hot and really tasty with lots of choice, served with a smile by the staff. Our little Dog was made really welcome and even had treats bought to her while we had our meal in the bar. A really good value, fabulous place to spend a night. We will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Thought this was more a hotel, but is actually more a pub/ restaurant with a separate building with rooms. Positives - Rooms - stayed in King Superior which was excellent- v comfortable, spacious, big bathroom. Maid was great and got us softer pillows on request . Food- overall extremely good, with excellent breakfast Location- backs onto Downs with walks and a chalk garden with free entry. Staff - friendly Negatives - -Although there is a small residents lounge in the room annex, there is nowhere else to sit apart from pub/ restaurant. -We were there on a Sunday night - by 8pm they were out of roast dinners (apart from pork) - i ordered this and got 2 of the thinnest slices I have ever been given (paper thin) - I can only imagine they were making it stretch as no one would normally accept that portion size! Probably an exception rather than the rule as the place was busy. -The Monday was our 30th wedding anniversary and as we had been given a table the previous night by the servers area / toilet, we requested that morning a table by the window at 8pm for dinner. The lady said that was fine and they would make it happen and wrote it down . Arriving at our booking time of 8pm, we were told that not only was that table unavailable, there were no tables for 2- we ended up eating our anniversary meal in the bar rather than wait half an hour. The manager told us curtly that they can take requests but don’t guarantee them. - the annex building is close to a cess pit - not really a big problem but was sometimes a bit smelly as you left the entrance. In summary - the rooms, location and food are great - just a few issues that slightly ruined our stay.

I booked the private dining room for my family and friends and we had the room from 1 pm until 5 pm. The food and service were very well received by everyone and a special mention must go to Ursula for all her help and attention for making it a very special occasion.

The rooms are in a separate annex near the car park. However not noisy. They are very well furnished, decorated and appointed: to a luxury standard. The sound proofing is not good between the rooms. Noise from guests talking in corridors or residents lounge does carry. A reminder to guests to be quiet in the corridors and to keep the TV down is probably needed. The restaurant is very good indeed with willing service. Very popular for sunday lunch I gather. Fish cakes were too packed with potato. Puddings showed a really good touch as good as a top restaurant. The menu lacks a healthy option such as grilled fish. Portions are substantial. Breakfast was cleanly cooked and served with a smile. Hash browns were not homemade unfortunately. Overall perfectly decent. There is a separate tea room which I look forward to trying. All in all a serious operation deserving of its success. Definitely recommended.

Before you go to highdown restaurant check they have a full menu. Went to this restaurant on 4/10/21 With my wife and granddaughter and myself at about 13.15 and got shown to our table. We then looked at the menu to get a meal for our granddaughter and chose a portion of cauliflower cheese. Two minutes later waiter came back to say no cauliflower cheese so looked at menu again and chose a curry but before we had time to order ours the waiter came back and had no curry also, I can understand why it was not busy at all maybe the the word has got around they have no food. I was not going to wait to be told sorry we don't have any of next order and left. Highdown maybe have a full menu and not expect customers to eat what you have left in you kitchen
