We may well have been the last guests at Smugglers, but our stay was as welcoming and comfortable as last year. Superb breakfasts. We'll miss the house and gardens and the doggies next year. All the best for the next adventure Patricia!More

My wife and i had the "experience" of staying at the smugglers in August. We had read the previous reviews of the B&B on trip advisor, but gave the owners the benefit of the doubt. Upon arrival at the Smugglers, we experienced the very rude...More

This is a very strange review. You say you stayed in August - but you did not place your review on this site until October. I have no recollection whatsoever of commenting on anyone's parking - unless it was just to suggest where to park...More

Smugglers is a spacious, period, and beautifully appointed detached house in a quiet country lane a few mins drive or cycle from Chichester City Centre and Chichester Festival Theatre - and 8 mins drive from More all recreational facilities and events at Goodwood. With 3 B&B rooms and also a self contained studio available self-catered or bed and breakfast it is the perfect place to stay. Less

Oh dear Alan - you were not a well man when you were here and everyone - myself and your parents - did all they could to make you comfortable and happy. The comment about things not being clean in the studio is odd as it was your job - not mine - to keep it clean whilst you were here - although I did change your bedding and towels every few days as agreed at the outset. As for the new and beautifully fitted en-suite to the room your parents stayed in - of course it was not filthy Alan and I am totally sure your parents would be staggered you have said that. They were charming people and told me the room was beautiful and very comfortable. You are not a happy chap Alan - and I am sorry about that - but you really should not take that out on people who tried to be good, kind and helpful to you. I hope you are more settled and have found a home now and a job to keep you occupied. All the best, Patricia
