Chilled when I needed it !
I was staying for pre-marathon running and the staff were very welcoming and accessible.
They had included both a breakfast and dinner to suit marathoners in the preparation which was a brilliant idea and they called me before hand to ask if I would like to make a reservation. The rooms were lovely, a very tranquil setting next to a lovely horse field and lake - would definitely stay again if I was visiting or running again !!.
Very pleasant hotel, staff were very polite and helpful. accommodation and location was very nice.
Definitely recommend and stay again ourselves.
Excellent service when we arrived and when we checked out.
The lady on reception was extremely helpful and cheerful. Rooms were spacious and comfortable.breakfast was well laid out and inviting. Would definitely stay again.
Friendly and helpful staff. This was our fourth visit and again The Hickstead proved very good value. Minor points already reported to the hotel were to avoid putting all dinner guests at close quarters to each other in one area when there was plenty of room elsewhere. Warm plates for hot food at breakfast and keeping the food properly hot suggested. A lick of paint on the stair handrails suggested - all minor points to an enjoyable stay and we will be back.
Excellence as standard ?
We had the package with dinner included. We had low expectations but we're very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the meal and the excellent friendly service. The room was very good and . In fact it was a very pleasant experience.
Had a nice stay
Came for one night for a weekend away, good base to explore the south downs - would recommend.
The pub just down the road - Sportsmans Arms (we think?) serves some nice food if you're looking for dinner

Excellent one night stay after a weeks holiday in the area.
Excellent value for money as cost included bed, breakfast and dinner. Would recommend a stay at the Hickstead.
Really enjoyable break
Couldn't believe that I had got it right but the price paid for this package of bed and breakfast with dinner and a large glass of wine was correct.
What excellent value. If you are looking for a quiet comfy hotel which serves excellent food and where the staff really care about you this is a safe bet
From the moment we arrived at reception our three day stay was joy. All the members of staff were delightful. There is an air of friendliness without familiarity that makes this Hotel comfy. There appears to be many returning guests who the staff remember and welcome by name.I would definitely return and would be happy to recommend The Hickstead to anyone
The whole experience was excellent.
My wife and I felt very well cared for and the room and food were of a very high standard,
Great weekend all round.
I have stayed at the Hickstead before years ago and it has the same standard as it was then, excellent.
The buffet breakfast was very well laid out with a good variety of food and drinks. The cooked breakfast was really good (I could have gone up for another one!) I tried to book a couple of weeks ago but it stated that all rooms were booked. But going on Late Rooms.com showed two rooms vacant and was glad because this was my first choice of hotel in the area. My wife and I were going to the Thai Festival in Preston Park for the two days and the whole experienced was enjoyable. It certainly helps a great deal when the place you stay at is to your satisfaction also. It made the weekend complete.
