We were very impressed by the hotel staff. On arrival the receptionist told us that there was a wedding and gave us a room well away from the wedding party. It was very quiet and we had a long undisturbed sleep. Waiting staff were also very friendly and attentive, even on the night when the wedding took place. My only little gripe was that they had no tomato juice for the Bloody Mary ordered on the Friday night, but this was rectified the following night. Overall very impressed by SuperBreak and the Hickstead Hotel. Collapse

Stayed March 2018, one night. £90 room only When you first approach this property, you have this feeling that you're arriving somewhere really rather special. The entrance and driveway are almost grand and beautifully laid out and then you reach the front door to discover everything else is a bit of a let-down. I'm going to overlook the fact that the hotel separately tried to overcharge me, first for the pre-paid room on arrival and then for dinner the next day. Perhaps these things happen and they did remedy the bill without fuss. What surprises me is that the published photos do seem to be quite genuine and yet do so little to convey the tired state of this place. They claim the rooms are decorated in a contemporary style but the brochure must have been written c. 1975. And there seems to have been very little updating or maintenance since. Therefore, and especially given other local hotels in which I've stayed for quite a bit less (and including breakfast,) I thought the accommodation really poor value overall. Worn and dirty carpeting, mouldy shower seals and decaying furniture are just not acceptable. Not wishing to be totally negative, it is certainly quiet which is a blessing and I did sleep well. I also can't fault the breakfast, that was a very pleasant surprise - plentiful and well-priced (on its own.) If the price point were rather lower, I suppose I'd consider staying here again. But with so many more appealing and cheaper options locally, I doubt it. Collapse

I review hotels frequently and don’t like to give bad reviews but I am always very honest and unfortunately this hotel was pretty dreadful! I cannot believe the good reviews and ratings it has....they sound like a different hotel! When you arrive at the hotel it looks nice from the outside and is off the main road so in a quiet place. When we arrived there was a wedding ongoing. We checked in and found the lady on reception to be very unwelcoming and unfriendly. We thought she must have been busy or stressed but she was still like that later on. Our room was average, it was clean however the net at the window had rust staining along the bottom. The bathroom tiles had been broken and looked like they had just been put back on with blu tack! The rooms were not sound proof at all. In the morning we awoke to the sound of someone having a wee and breaking wind in the room above us!! We went out to nearby Burgess Hill for the evening and returned around 11pm. We ordered sandwiches from the 24hr menu to be told that that wasn’t actually 24hrs as there was no chef!! After complaining we were eventually given sandwiches. The one positive thing about the hotel was the lady serving at breakfast - she was very friendly and talkative. Unfortunately the breakfast itself wasn’t great and one of my friends was served a very under cooked poached egg! All in all we won’t be returning - we paid £137 for a night and I don’t think it was worth even half of that unfortunately. Collapse

We stayed here for a two night break, visiting Brighton and Arundel. The hotel was easy to find, had ample parking and was pleasant on approach. The hotel was clean and comfortable, staff friendly and our room spacious and more than adequate. Nice toiletries and plenty of tea and coffee available, as well as some biscuits!! Bed was comfortable and we had two good nights sleep. There was a wedding on the Friday night, although we didn't hear any noise from this and even this morning, the wedding party was kept separate from the other guests. Only grumble would be the, although speedy, English breakfast, which for our taste was rather undercooked (prefer a little colour on both bacon and sausage and tomatoes were not softened at all). Saying this, we would stay again. Have posted reviews on sea life centre, Brighton pavilion, cafe Rocco and the Brighton museum (Brighton appx 15min drive, reccomend the park n ride) and Arundel castle (appx 45 min drive). Collapse

From the moment we first viewed The Hickstead the staff were brilliant. Through the whole planning phases to the actual wedding day, the staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. All the guests enjoyed the food and shared our views about the staff and venue. The numerous stresses of planning a wedding were definable made easier with the help of Kellie and all the other staff members. Collapse

The waitresses and reception staff were lovely. All except for the chef who you could hear constantly moaning in the kitchen " they want it on brown bread!?! You said they wanted it on white!" needless to say made us feel very uncomfortable. The highchair was filthy, waitress was happy to clean it and did apologise. Also the cup my daughter was given was dirty. The table cloth on the table looked clean, although napkins smelt of smoke. Afternoon tea was nice enough, although you do get slices of cake rather than individual ones. Waitress was happy to fill up my tea pot. Also there was pop music playing, would have preferred something a little more relaxing, but that is just my opinion. Collapse
