Stayed one night. Lovely room, everything you want. Good bathroom with soap, shampoo, shower gel. Lovely first impression on entering room, towels styled as elephants on the bed, clever and attractive. Comfy bed. Left too early for full breakfast service but cereal, yoghurt, juice brought to room evening before. Evening meal choice varied and food very good quality and plentiful.... More

What a lovely little pub opposite the huge Cathedral.i enjoyed a cuppa while my husband really ended his local ale. It's very comfy on the big leather sofas and many people had popped in for lunch and gosh it smelt and looked great. Staff were very efficient and friendly.

Lovely little Inn, great location. Friendly staff, great food. The landlord chatted to us while we was waiting on our dinner, we spoke about other places to visit etc, all staff were friendly. Inn was clean. We had a family room which was good enough, a bit in decor but fine. Lovely beer garden, but weather was not kind to... More

We were visiting the cathedral to see the Carpet of Flowers and didn't really think we would be able to get into the St Mary's Gate Inn, (which is right next to the cathedral) due to the number of people already inside and others milling about outside. But the staff were brilliant - they went out of their way to... More

We were sent to this hotel due to a fire in our chosen hotel and we were so pleased we were. Fantastic location with views of the cathedral. The shower was fabulous and the breakfast was perfect. Only downside was no bottled water in the room and not clear if the tap water in the bathroom was drinkable.

Once you've walked around the small Arundel town, seen it's selection of cafes and little oddity shops, and made it to the top of the hill to the Cathedral. There's refreshment to hand. The St Mary's Gate has a cozy bar and restaurant, with a hidden gem of an enclosed decked beer garden. From the road it looks like it... More
