Had Sunday lunch here with a group of friends. We hadn't met for a while and wanted a good catch-up. Started out with a drink in the bar, where the staff were very helpful and friendly, bringing us the menus so we could make our choice at leisure. Then proceeded into the Courtyard Restaurant which is very attractive and has...

Returned from holiday to find central heating down. Service engineer could not attend until next day so my wife and I stayed overnight at the nearby Birch Hotel, we had stayed there many years ago and found the hotel average at best. The hotel has been extensively refurbished, we booked B&B which was faultless, cannot speak highly enough about the...

Staff on reception desk where...

Just spent an agonising 2hrs having lunch today with a roast dinner that looked and tasted like it had been picked up off the floor yesterday. Utter laziness in the kitchen serving parsnips with a solid core with skin on and lamb that had more fat than whale's midriff ! It was disgusting. On top of that and not the...

Visited on business. First impressions? Reception slow and a little disorganised. The room basic, but clean. The food was good, the waiting staff were friendly but seemed a little overwhelmed by relatively few guests? Overall? Perhaps a little tired?

Hotel is ideally located in Haywards Heath with plenty of parking. It also has free WI-FI throughout the hotel which was great. The rooms are on the small side, however, the bathroom had been recently renovated and was really nice with a big shower head/bath. The only 2 negatives are the carpet was worn and tired and the room had...
