Our Inspector's View

With 120 acres of Sussex countryside all to itself, Alexander House is in a Goldilocks spot, close enough to Gatwick Airport for those jetting in and out, but tranquil enough as a getaway in its own right. The handsome red-brick hotel has glam bedrooms, a spa to pamper you into submission, and two smart dining options. Royal-blue upholstery and white linen reinforce the fine dining mood in AG's, the principal dining room. The kitchen has all dietary bases covered with vegetarian, vegan and dairy-free versions of set-price and tasting menus, and the cooking is contemporary, with striking combinations of ingredients and heaps of visual artistry. First off, scallops are teamed with miso, kimchi, sesame dressing, radishes and a seaweed cracker. Next up, herb-crusted lamb cannon with moist and tender braised belly wrapped in crisp potato, with confit garlic, hispi cabbage and mint jellies. Look out for the excellent Marmite bread.

About The area

Discover West Sussex

Divided from East Sussex back in 1888, West Sussex is so typically English that to walk through its landscape will feel like a walk through the whole country. Within its boundaries lies a wide variety of landscape and coastal scenery, but it is the spacious and open South Downs with which the county is most closely associated.

In terms of walking, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Studying the map reveals a multitude of routes – many of them to be found within the boundaries of the South Downs National Park – and an assortment of scenic long-distance trails leading towards distant horizons; all of them offer a perfect way to get to the heart of ‘Sussex by the sea,’ as it has long been known. If you enjoy cycling with the salty tang of the sea for company, try the ride between Chichester and West Wittering. You can vary the return journey by taking the Itchenor ferry to Bosham. 

West Sussex is renowned for its many pretty towns, of course. Notably, there is Arundel, littered with period buildings and dominated by the castle, the family home of the Duke of Norfolk, that dates back nearly 1,000 years.
