The signage for getting to the restaurant was not good and we wandered around for ages. The afternoon tea was nice but the cakes seemed defrosted not freshly made. Service was excellent and attentive.

We enjoyed the afternoon tea despite appalling weather outside. The sandwiches, cakes and scones were delicious and there was plenty of tea to drink. Service was fine as well.

A little out of the way but worth the drive. This charming restaurant overlooks a beautiful West Sussex valley, the food and service is excellent and reasonable priced.

Both had fish and chips for lunch - the batter was v undercooked for us both and we both questioned if the fish was cooked through. Chips also slightly under cooked. Saw man on table next toys also left his very under cooked looking batter. Manager also said we would need to sit in the bar area as we were in our robes from the spa day and implied that we should be dressed, however spa reception told us to go straight there so they need to communicate on what's acceptable dress. Not much atmosphere there, perhaps some music would add to it. Actual spa - pool was nice but the jacuzzi had cold water shooting out and the pool temp was also a bit chillier than we'd hoped. Treatment (facial) was nice enough, very friendly girl.

Sunday 3 course lunch for 12 people was an absolute pleasure. The service was incredibly attentive and friendly and all food courses were to a high standard and delicious. We had a fantastic pre Christmas family gathering and cannot wait to return. Highly recommended.

The restaurant was empty when we came however unfortunately the waiter placed 2 other guests on a table immediately next to ours which made me feel uncomfortable and ruined the atmosphere

Very pleasant meal, and excellent attentive service - well done to the team. The starters were all absolutely first class, as was the steak and the Venison. The liver (I was told) was maybe a bit overdone (dry) and not enough gravy. I think you need a more exciting wine list too. But overall we will definitely recommend. First time we have been. Beautiful place. PS need better crackers - all the contents were the same!

We had an amazing experience at Lythe Hill Hotel & Spa. It’s the perfect destination to unwind from a long week work. Very spacious and cozy room, the food we had for dinner was excellent, the spa amazing and the service was great.. Overall a great experience which I highly recommend. Very good value for money, too.

Food was so much better than when we last visited, the service was slow at first but did improve, but like I have always said the waiters are always lovely professional , I do love the staff so much, thankyou so much for your offer to regain my faith in the food . You really tried but we were not asked of any dietary requirements, we had our son who is vegan and can’t eat cauliflower or broccoli, but he just had the potatoes and shared the vegetarian gravy , so the way forward is to improve on asking and providing more options .i did ask for more carrots but that never came I think there should be more questions , as I didn’t realise that the vegetables were the only two my son is ilergic to. But we were happy that the dinner was cooked so much better , and the staff were lovely , so thankyou

We had a lovely evening with incredible food and service. We couldn’t fault a thing, and the birthday platter of desserts for my boyfriend was a thoughtful gesture. Thank you ever so much!

We were invited back to Lythe Hill as guests and throughly enjoyed our Sunday roast. The meat was delicious and was accompanied by lots of veggies, roast potatoes, gravy and sauces. I would have rated the meal a 5 as it was excellent, but I think they forgot to bring us our Yorkshire puddings!

Due to a wedding party staying breakfast seemed a little chaotic. Staff were extremely busy and struggling to keep on top of everything in the way I expect they would usually. Dinner the previous night was excellent.
