Lovely weekend 😀
Posted Oct 31, 2016
I booked the St Mary's Gate Inn for 3 nights to celebrate my husband's birthday by spending the weekend in Arundel. The inn is situated at the top of a hill next to the Cathedral. We arrived early, Nevin the landlady was there to greet us and show us to our room in the annexe at the rear. There was ample free parking. It was a nice size, with good quality matching furniture , a TV and a comfortable bed. It was spotlessly clean, with a full complement of tea, coffee and biscuits. The shower room was modern and had lovely white fluffy towels and toiletries. We slept well, although it would have been nice to have been able to open a window. There was free Wifi, easily obtainable in the bar, but a little intermittent in the room.( Just open the door and it reconnects!!) We spent the 3 days roaming round Arundel, visiting the Cathedral, the Castle and the Wetland Centre. The breakfast was ample, with juice, cereal, yogurts, and a Full English of your choice. The sausages were particularly delicious. Toast and tea/coffee refills came quickly by a pleasant and helpful server. We ate in the bar/ restaurant on 2 evenings, the food looked and tasted nice, standard Pub Grub with a Specials Board and was a good portion size, especially the starters. The whitebait and mini Camembert were tasty and filling. The beer and wine was well chilled. The room was cleaned daily. All in all we had a great time here, and would thoroughly recommend to others.
