Facilities at Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa

Walk through the door of Bailiffscourt and you take a step back in time, as narrow passageways with flagstone floors lead you through a series of intimate lounges and sitting rooms, decorated with antiques, tapestries and beautiful fresh flowers.
Gaze out through the Gothic mullioned windows at the delightful gardens and the rose-clad courtyard and sink into a comfortable sofa or armchair, warmed by a crackling log fire on cooler days, while experiencing the very best of service and hospitality.
Take time out to visit the luxurious and contemporary Bailiffscourt Spa or take a stroll through the 30 acres of private parkland with its moat, small streams and wildlife, leading down to unspoilt Climping Beach.

History of the hotel

With all the appearance of an ancient manor house, Bailiffscourt's best-kept secret is that until 1927 it didn't exist. It was designed for Lord Moyne, then Walter Guinness of the brewing family, by the antiquarian and architect, Amyas Phillips.

His brief was to recreate a house in the medieval style, which was favoured by Lord Moyne's wife Evelyn. Phillips searched the country for original stone, woodwork, doors, windows and fireplaces, bringing them all together at Climping to create the exquisite country house and park that we see today.

Throughout the 1930's, Bailiffscourt played host to the high society of the day until the death of Lady Moyne in 1939, and in 1948 it became a privately owned hotel and in 1993 Historic Sussex Hotels bought and lovingly restored Bailiffscourt.

Absolutely superb stay. We were treated with such warmth and welcome when we arrived and this fabulous service continued throughout our stay. They facilities were impeccable and the beach being just a stone's throw away was bliss. We'll be returning every year I think!

Bitty

Clive J, Hertfordshire, stayed: August 2016

A most uncomfortable hotel - each part reached through inter communicating rooms and corridors. In order to get to the restaurant and lounges on one day we had to pass through crowds of people attending a celebration. A most embarrassing and uncomfortable experience. Our room carpet was dirty when we arrived and subsequently cleaned and was very dark and gloomy. The staff were kind and most helpful even apologetic. This constituted the worst value for money experienced through your company and would not recommend it - rather the contrary.
