Three nights’ stay at the Old Tollgate was the third leg of our recent multi-destination English holiday, and by some margin the best value for money of any of the four hotels we stayed in. Given the quality of the accommodation, the pre-book no-refund B&B package that we bought was astonishingly good value, and I wonder whether the hotel has trouble filling its rooms, given that Bramber, though a sweet little village, can be seen in about five minutes, and there are no really big tourist attractions nearby (Parham House is about nine miles away). In fact, however, the Old Tollgate would make a great base for anyone wanting to take in a sweep of the whole stretch of East and West Sussex coastal resorts. Anyway, after rather shaky plumbing in Cornwall, not to mention one of the tightest car parks I’ve ever grapplied with, this was spacious luxury. We paid £52 for the first night and £83.20 for each of the other two nights, and for this we got a first-floor suite in the newer annex building, with a very comfortable king bed plus all the little in-room consumable frills you’d expect, a separate sitting area, and a decent-sized bathroom including jacuzzi tub — bliss after just a shower with a mind of its own.
I am reviewing the restaurant separately. less
