Why We Love It

  • Ghyll Manor Hotel & Restaurant is in the rural Sussex village of Rusper
  • This 17th-century country house hotel is set in more than 40 acres of grounds and has a private lake
  • The restaurant has an AA Rosette


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, vintage and contemporary features include original beams and modern furniture.

Rusper, in the district of Horsham, has a village shop, a park, public tennis courts and two pubs. There are many walking routes nearby, including the 150-mile Sussex Border Path, which runs along Rusper High Street. 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, the 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, all with free Wi-Fi. Standard and Superior Rooms are in the modern Stable Mews in the grounds.

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

The rooms were generally fine although the beds (Mattresses) need replacing.
Other Comments
Lack of a Resident's bar--The only bar was taken over by a wedding party. Lack of staff at reception and given wrong information about time of breakfast. The evening meal was mixed--Good lamb but overcooked salmon not sure the poached pear had seen any water at all.

The 3 Course meal allowance was £32 but the choices were limited, only 4 starters, 4 mains, 4 desserts. The Mains didn’t really suit me, if I had been paying and not part of the deal, I would have been very disappointed. You would expect more choice for a very good allowance.

Very spacious suite but window was not big enough & not enough lighting. Food was really delicious, looked & tasted amazing but the service was too slow & had to ask for things.
Other Comments
Are there enough waiting staff for dinner & breakfast? Service was incredibly slow & we waited 15 minutes at breakfast for an empty table to be cleared. Staff were very polite though.
