Reviews - The Castle Inn Hotel

3Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
The Street , Bramber , , Steyning, BN44 3WE
Set in rural Sussex, in the shadow of the South Downs, this exceptional family run free house is a joy to behold. In Bramber village (Best kept village in South East England multiple years) The Castle Inn Hotel sits in magnificent splendour. The front of the Inn is bathed in glorious summer hanging baskets, meticulously cared for. To the rear is an English garden that, quite literally, takes your breath away. Packed with almost every plant imaginable for a garden there are a few surprises in store, such as the Strawberry and Tomato plants that seemingly go unnoticed until their juicy red fruit appears. Tranquillity best describes the atmosphere as you sit back and relax, only to be replaced by awe and wonder as Mr. and Mrs. Swan glide effortlessly passed on the stream, not five feet away, with their half a dozen signets. Inside the Inn there is "Olde Worlde" furnishing, and an exquisitely kept bar. Boasting some very fine ales and an even more impressive wine list there is something to keep everybody happy, from the connoisseur to the casual drinker. The Landlord keeps a perfect cellar which is reflected by the success the family have had in a twenty-something year, three pub career. Steyning is a small town and, with the South Downs landscape and charming local architecture as a stunning backdrop, it is certainly one of the most picturesque in Sussex. The town has a cheerful, vibrant community, a host of interesting shops, the award-winning Cobblestone walk and country pubs and fine restaurants aplenty. Steyning is also the perfect place to explore the Downs, the Weald of central Sussex and the Adur Valley as well the famous Chanctonbury Ring, the Iron Age hill fort at Cissbury Ring and the many lanes and footpaths that link the Downs, river and hamlets with the area’s ancient churches and inns

Short stay
The Hotel is very popular for walkers off all ages. There are lovely walks round Bramber then you can go and visit Steyning well worth it. Accomodation is very clean and tidy but our bathroom was seperate from room, just across the hallway, no problem on a short stay. We eat in the bar in the evening and the food was very enjoyable as was the beer.

Oasis in a storm
We were returning from Rome and had a disastrous BA experience with flights cancelled and massive delays.We phoned the hotel updating them on our delayed arrival and they were wonderful. We eventually arrived at 1am next morning( we were scheduled to arrive at 4pm.) The hosts were fantastic and shepherded us to our room, where we had a great sleep and woke to a wonderful breakfast. Truly a client focused business.

Good, reasonable rates pub/hotel in Bramber, nr Steyning.
Nice, traditional place to stay, good breakfast & service. A wonderful lady Debbie, who works at the Castle Inn was a really knowledgeable person who recommended places nearby to visit, told us some great history about the hotel - an absolute fount of information! Just what you need when staying somewhere new. Could even tell us how to pronounce local names of places....altogether an enjoyable, peaceful stopover & all the staff were courteous, beautifully mannered, smart & polite. Would recommend the Castle Inn to anyone...would definitely stay there again.

Characterful and very pleasant
Very lovely and characterful pub/hotel, only marred by a tepid shower in the room. When reported in the morning the management seemed genuinely to want to resolve it for the next guest!
