Certificate of Excellence
The Millstream nestles in the heart of Old Bosham, an historic village on the shores of Chichester Harbour, combining the elegance of a small English country house with the character and charm of an eighteenth century malthouse cottage.The Bar offers a cosy fireside setting in which to relax. On warm days a door opens onto the lawns where you can sit beneath a sunshade and listen to the chatter of the ducks. The charming sitting room, with its deep cushioned armchairs, grand piano, bowls of freshly cut flowers and tranquil atmosphere, is the ideal place to meet up with friends over a afternoon tea or an aperitif, to play a quiet game of cards or just settle down and while away the hours with a good novel. The 2 AA Rosette Restaurant, overlooking the pretty gardens, offers a varied selection of modern British dishes, prepared with the best available fresh, seasonal, local produce, which are complemented by a list of fine wines from an established cellar. Each enchanting bedroom has been attractively styled to enhance its individual character and outlook. All have en-suite facilities, flat screen television, wi-fi internet access, radio/CD alarm clock, tea & coffee making facilities, mini-fridge with complimentary mineral water & fresh milk, direct dial telephone, wall safe, trouser press and hairdryer. The Gardens that surround the hotel are carefully tended and provide a wonderful place to relax in the warmer weather. Overlooking the stream in the side garden is an oak Gazebo which was built for a Wild family wedding and which now provides shelter from the rain or sun. In the summer months there are tables and chairs at which you can enjoy morning coffee, a light lunch, afternoon tea, a cocktail before dinner or an al fresco meal as the sun comes down.

Dear MadeleineC-W I am delighted to hear you had a lovely weekend with us and used the Millstream as a base for the wedding you attended. We try to include extra touches to make each stay as enjoyable as possible. The wood burner certainly proved popular over the past few days after the strong winds that made their presence felt! We hope to welcome you again in the future. Kind regards, Tom Sherlock

Dear Flygirl1718, We noted your TripAdvisor question in October and are glad the Superior Garden Room was available for your stay. We have tried hard to include home from home comforts as you rightly mention to make each stay a little more memorable. I am glad you made the most of the Hibernation offer and dined in each restaurant during your stay; we like to give flexibility and guests the option to dine in both restaurants for stays of two or more nights. Head Chef, Neil, has seasonal dishes and favourites on both menus – we are yet to put your marriage proposal to him! I will be sure to pass on your kind words to each of the team members you have mentioned. We look forward to seeing you again soon; do visit us in the Spring or Summer months as sitting in the gardens in evening sunshine or dining alfresco at Marwick’s brasserie is particularly nice. Best regards, Tom Sherlock Hotel Manager

Dear S636MVjane, Thank you for your positive comments. We are very lucky with our location, not only is it peaceful and beautiful, but within easy reach of lovely beaches, other villages and historic Chichester. Do visit us in the summer months and enjoy our gardens looking their finest and perhaps dining alfresco on Marwick’s terrace. Best Regards, Tom Sherlock

Dear Sandi M, Thank you for your kind comments. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and found the team, the hotel and food to be a high standard. Bosham is a lovely village and with Chichester and the South Downs just a short distance away, makes for a great base to explore the surrounding area. We hope to welcome you again in the future.

Do any of the rooms have American-sized queen or king beds? Thanks!
Yes, we always ask for and get a king sized bed room. These are usually two three foot singles zipped together. We also ask for and get sheets and blankets instead of the dreaded duvets. Anything you ask for they will try and accommodate you. Enjoy.
