This was one of the best nights away we have ever had. The guest house was breathtaking,cosy and oozing charm. Nothing was too much trouble as my husband added extras to the stay,, we had nibbles and champers ready for us to enjoy whilst sinking into the luxurious sofa in front of a ready -laid fire,,, perfect setting with candles for our special time away. We opted for a hamper evening 3 course meal from the local restaurant ,,it was delicious and fresh, we just warmed in oven and ate at the table that was beautifully arranged with flowers and little muffins in a dome, it was so thought out -this was like stepping into a dream. After the meal and chilling out, I had the pleasure of a deep bubble bath using the toiletries provided I was in heaven! The fluffy thick towels were just gorgeous and the charismatic bedroom blew us away. This ticked all the boxes for us. Good value but great that you're in control to book extras like breakfast hampers etc. We would stay again as we felt spoilt rotten and it was easy to book and communication was great.
From the moment we drove into the charming courtyard (what a plus to have parking in the centre of the city) we felt so relaxed and immediately adored the facade and attention to detail. Window boxes and table and chairs made us want to sit out straight away and enjoy the warmer weather we were lucky to have. On entering we were blown away by the decor which perfectly matched the style of the house with the added bonus of a wood burning fire which always makes it for me. Rachel (the owner) had left various notes to guide us in our stay but the items that showed just how important our stay was to her were the wonderful photo books she had created including all the details we needed about the house to make our stay trouble free and things to do in and around the area. If we hadn't known the area too well, this would have been invaluable and saved endless hours of trawling through the internet to find something to do.
We popped out for dinner but to be honest I wanted to get back to our little place and snuggle down! There were DVDs provided for us to watch and board games to play but the bed and it's soft sheets and perfect mattress were calling and I had the best night's sleep I'd had in a long time.
In the morning, after a hot, long shower with gorgeous molton brown products, we sat down to a hearty breakfast with ingredients from a local restaurant that you can opt to buy before you stay. The ingredients were top notch and even my 'foodie' husband was amazed at the quality. We left with sinking hearts, wishing that we could have stayed longer in this heavenly haven.
Thank you very much for a truly memorable stay in this unique house and environment. End to end booking and during stay communication excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Attention to detail and quality is excellent ,e.g Lovely fresh flowers , and all the extra touches were appreciated. Too many to mention but main highlights:- overall cosiness and character of house, amazing big fluffy towels, tasteful decorations, pictures, lovely wood burner although we didn't need it as house was warm ! lovely breakfast, comfy bed , lovely hot shower, (nice heated floor!) car park space was a bonus for Chichester !location to town centre an restaurants excellent, ( recommend lemongrass Thai). House and Chichester guide books were very useful and further quality ! Would strongly recommend
We stayed at the Clock House via Air B&B as we were invited to Goodwood for the car racing and all the hotels were full. We are so happy they were! Rachel the owner was wonderful from booking, all the way through and post our weekend. She has done up the house beautifully (everything is new) with thoughtful little touches everywhere (our names were written in whit chocolate on a fruit and muffin plate!). The White Company dressing gowns were a lovely plus. The bed is also insanely comfortable! The house is so well stocked you hardly need take anything but seeing as it is about 3 minutes walk from Marks and Spencers on Chichester high street you can easily pop in for anything. You can also walk to the house from the station and as it's only 1.5hrs from Victoria it really is a perfect weekend away. We are already planning our next trip! It is better than a five star hotel!

My husband and I stayed here in february and we are so glad we did! The location is amazing, really close to the shops and restaurants, yet we were suprised at how quiet it was, a real little sanctary. On arrival it was lovely to have somewhere secure to park, right outside the property and the gorgeous little courtyard was beautifully presented and we enjoyed coffee sat outside there the next day. Inside was stylish yet really warm and cosy and one of the big highlights for us was the lovely wood burner that we enjoyed lighting and reading our books next to that night. Throughout the property everywhere was immaculate and inviting with wonderful attention to detail which made our stay really comfortable. I was a big fan of the local chocolates and the coffee machine made excellent fresh coffee. The kitchen was perfectly equipped with everything we needed and more! Upstairs the bedroom was beautifully decorated and as immaculate as downstairs. The exposed beams and lovely views onto the little courtyard and street were stunning.I really fell in love with it even before trying out the bed which gave me one of the best night's sleep I've had! The bathroom was lovely with an excellent shower and the bath products a real treat. In the morning, just to top it all off, we enjoyed the feast of all breakfasts delivered in a hamper from a local restaurant with literally everything you could imagine to make the perfect full English, totally delicious! Overall I cannot recommend the clockhouse more highly, we had the most relaxed stay and left feeling very refreshed after such a lovely time there.
