We stayed for two nights in The Flora Pullman carriage which is beautiful and retains many original features. The old railway station building is beautiful and very tastefully decorated - we felt we were a million miles away from the hussle and bustle of the real world. The staff are helpful and breakfast was lovely. Couldn't reccommend this enough.

Have just returned from a lovely stay at the Old Railway Station, Petworth. This is such a gem hidden away in West Sussex with all its preserved railway history. To stay over in a Pullman carriage was such a treat and to be so well greeted and looked after by the staff. Well worth a visit. We will be back.

Six of us enjoyed one night at The Old Railway Station to celebrate our Dad's birthday - he is a railway enthusiast so this was a perfect present. We loved the warm welcome and nostalgic atmosphere, it is like stepping back in time... Afternoon tea in the converted waiting room, sitting in front of a real fire, perfect. The beds...

We spent several breaks at this location. A disused old railway station, wonderfully converted into a unique hotel. You have the option of a room in the old station house, or in one of four Pullman railway carriages. Two units per carriage. Breakfast is taken in the old booking hall. No evening meals but several good pubs and restaurents nearby....

We enjoyed a relaxing two nights here again. Friendly staff and unusual rooms make for a brilliant stay. Breakfast is served in the waiting room amid railway themed bric-a-brac. Afternoon tea is also served here in front of an open fire. We'll be back again next year.

We enjoyed our stay here last September so much we just had to do it again. This place never fails to amaze us. It's such a brilliant idea and so full of nostalgic history. I think if you ever had an interest in railways or particularly Pullman carriages it's a must. In saying that as a hotel / guest accommodation...

From the time of arrival, the experience was an absolute pleasure. Friendly, attentive staff, accommodation unique, and the breakfast very high quality. A truly unique establishment. I would have no hesitation in fully endorsing it. Keep up the good work!

Sleeping in a restored Pullman carriage was a delight. Everything you would expect in a good modern hotel room, with the added bonus of feeling you are back in the time of glamorous travel..
