Fodor's Expert Review Amberley Castle

Church St., 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 (£85 for a seven-course tasting menu) in the Queen's Room restaurant, beneath a 12th-century barrel-vaulted ceiling, or amid suits of armor in the Great Room.

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
  • five miles outside Arundel
  • incredibly expensive
