Amberley Castle in Amberley, England

For 900 years, Amberley Castle has enjoyed a quiet existence near the picturesque village of Amberley in England's West Sussex countryside. Today, it remains a prime example of medieval architecture--complete with moat--while serving as a lavish small hotel. This member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux collection boasts just 19 bedrooms and suites, each individually transformed to complement the architecture. Every day here is a keepsake, ending with the spectacle of the awesome, two-ton oak portcullis being lowered for the night.

Reflecting the property's exciting history, with innovative contemporary influences, 4 distinctive dining venues range from The Great Room adorned with suits of armor, to the thatch-roof Mistletoe Lodge treehouse, where you might indulge in a private dinner for two. On the grounds, pursuits include tennis, croquet, strolls through landscaped gardens and practice on the 18-hole professional putting course. Out and about, you can compare your home away from home to magnificent Arundel Castle, or visit inviting regional villages, such as the market town of Battle.

Not the experience of elegance and superb service I would expect from a Relais & Chateaux property. The property is impressive on approach but then falls short once inside. There is one very nice tea room/lounge area, but the other 2 areas are drab and unremarkable as is the dining room. The room was up a difficult narrow stairway and the view was facing a wall and claustrophobic. No one was available to show us around the property or give us any history of the castle or area at all. There are no activities available on the property even though there are activities listed on the Relais and Chateaux website for this property. The food was creative but taste and quality was average. Great place to day-visit for a photo op but not recommended for a night's stay.

My amazing boyfriend took me on a surprise trip to this overly romantic was beautiful from head to toe, the grounds, the roaring fires and the scenic surroundings was a thing of fairytales. Never before has a simple question "tell me the history of the castle" has gathered such magical insight... Evonne was fascinating and took us into another time, with detailed stories stooped in history. Her enthusiasm was infectious...5 stars for Evonne! *****

Fifty years ago we took the train to Scarborough, checked in at the first B&B we came to, and had a fish & chip supper. For our Golden Wedding Anniversary we had five course dinner and a four-poster bed in a luxury suite – in a castle! Wow! We had eaten here a few times but this was our first stay. You feel special from the moment you start up the drive to the fabulous entrance gatehouse with its twin towers and portcullis, and the reception staff maintained that feeling as we were shown to our suite in a newer building sitting in the old moat. We had our own little patio where we enjoyed complimentary tea and biscuits while we soaked in the atmosphere (all 900 years of it) and then strolled round the ruins before dinner. When we returned to our suite to dress for dinner we were enchanted to see a white peacock preening himself on our patio. The dining experience started in one of the lounges, where we had drinks and canapés in front of a log fire while examining the menu. Then we were taken upstairs to the Queens Room for our meal. Most of the tables were occupied before we left, but entry was staggered so that each new diner was given due attention. I wish I could describe the food, but each dish has so many components that the waiter has to name them. Far too many to remember, but you are left with the overall impression that nothing is too much trouble. Then back to the log fire for coffee and petit fours. Next morning breakfast was freshly cooked with an attractive range of options. We couldn't have imagined this fifty years ago. But neither could we now imagine checking into a cheap B&B. I guess Amberley Castle is evidence that with the passing of time our comfort zone has shifted - and we like this new one!

We arrived over an hour early and was able to check in. The Classic room exceeded my expectations and the breakfast was great (especially the french press coffee). The bathroom was pretty big. It was nice having double sinks. We would definitely come back.
