Rooms & Rates

Ghyll Manor Hotel & Restaurant is a converted 17th-century timber-framed manor house in Rusper, a small village in West Sussex. It's set in over 40 acres of gardens with a private lake, a terrace with a dais and an old amphitheatre. Inside there is a blend of vintage and contemporary features, such as original beams alongside modern furniture.

Rusper, in the district of Horsham, has a village shop, a park, public tennis courts and two pubs. The countryside location is ideal for walking -- the 150-mile Sussex Border Path runs along Rusper High Street, close to the hotel. Nutbourne Vineyards, Arundel Castle and the National Trust's Wakehurst Place are all within 40 minutes' drive of the hotel. 

Brighton, with its famous shopping area The Lanes, Royal Pavilion and Victorian seafront, is around 40 minutes' drive away, and the cathedral city of Chichester is within an hour's drive.

Guests can have drinks and afternoon tea in the conservatory or the Terrace Room, which has a large patio overlooking the gardens. The AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant serves classic dishes with an unfussy modern twist.

There are 29 rooms. Standard and Superior Rooms are in the modern Stable Mews in the grounds. All rooms have free Wi-Fi.

Note: The hotel is eight miles from Gatwick Airport, so there might be some aircraft noise.

We upgraded our room for an extra £10 and we were put in a lovely little cottage with separate living room and pretty garden.

Very friendly staff. The bar man/waiter was particularly friendly and made us feel very welcome. The room was amazing and the gardens beautiful. Highly recommended.

We were placed in a room away from the main house. Had to walk through the grounds to the restaurant. Fortunately although it was November, it wasn't too cold and dry. Bed was only 4'6". Too small! Lack of lighting in the room!

The hotel, grounds and room were great. The food and staff excellent. Will definitely return particularly this time of year as the autumn colours of the surrounding Surrey Hills were beautiful too. An excellent stay.

The extra £10 for the upgrade to a Superior room was worth every penny. The grounds were extensive and worth a walk round.
