Fodor's Expert Review Amberley Castle

Bury Hill, Off B2139, Amberley, West Sussex, BN18 9LT, England Fodor's Choice

Enter under the portcullis of this genuine medieval castle, where across the moat, present-day luxury dominates. Antiques and rich draperies furnish the individually designed bedrooms, and many have lattice windows, beamed ceilings, and curtained four-posters. You can dine (£65 for three courses) in the Queens restaurant, beneath a 12th-century barrel-vaulted ceiling, or amid suits of armor in the Great Room. The hotel is 5 miles north of Arundel.

PROS

  • sleep in a real castle
  • lovely gardens and grounds
  • good afternoon tea

CONS

  • you have to dress up for dinner
  • a little way from Arundel town
  • almost have to be as rich as an actual king to stay here
