The Goodwood Hotel, Chichester, West Sussex
You're in the heart of the sporting action at the Goodwood Estate - handy for playing golf, watching major racing events or even taking the controls of a plane in the aerodrome. Dine at the meat-focused restaurant, or indulge in the spa with Elemis treatments, a swimming pool and sauna.
Rooms available from £140 per night
Goodwood is a destination in itself with its racecourse, golf courses, spa and aerodrome. Next door, you'll find Cass Sculpture Foundation which showcases major artwork in woodland clearings.
Chichester is only five miles away - with a host of museums, a cathedral and a theatre that produces West End-quality shows.
By car: around an hour from Brighton and 2 hours from London. Free on-site parking available.
By train: London to Chichester takes 1 hour 30 minutes, after which, it's a 15-minute taxi to the hotel. Book trains to Chichester.
CHARACTER & STYLE
The hotel is made up of the older wing, and the main (more modern) part. Given the site's sporting focus, there is a smart, corporate vibe. By contrast, the restaurant next door (Farmer, Butcher, Chef) is quirky and had fun details such as flag-covered chairs and displays of motoring artefacts.
There are plenty of facilities, including lounges, a grill restaurant, gym and spa. On the estate, there's also golf courses, the aerodrome, clay pigeon shooting and the chance to drive on the famous motor circuit. Service is efficient.
- Indoor pool
- Free parking
The Character Rooms can be found in the 18th-century wing; rooms in the modern wing are blander but smart with thoughtful amenities. Laptop safes and ironing boards suit those on business, while everyone appreciates fluffy robes and quality duvets. Some rooms have sitting areas.

FOOD & DRINK
Unusual cuts of estate lamb, beef and pork are served in creative ways at Farmer, Butcher, Chef. There's a grill and clubhouse too. We loved the comforting starters and sides.
