The perfect Sussex meeting and events venue: this stunning boutique hotel, set in an immaculately restored Grade II-listed Georgian property in the heart of historic Chichester, has two flexible rooms suitable for any sized conference, meeting or event up to 130 attendees.
Meetings & private events work so much better in great venues, in great locations.
This stunning ‘modern meets classic’ boutique hotel, set in an immaculately restored Grade 2-listed Georgian property, mixes contemporary interiors with Georgian and Regency period features; think spiral staircases and full-height sash windows. It’s ideally located in the heart of historic Chichester, an upmarket, charismatic English town.
The hotel has two flexible event rooms, listed below, that can accommodate almost any conference, meeting or event need up to 130 guests. For exceptional eating and drinking during your event, our passionate chefs have prepared a selection of appetising menus - we call it ‘brain food’ – anything from tea & cakes to set menus and platter-style, banquet feasts. And to take the stress out of the organisation, and to ensure your event will run smoothly, we’ll provide you with the services of a dedicated event coordinator.
For before and after your event, we can offer attendees discounted room rates for those wishing to stay, locally-sourced food & drink at the excellent in-house restaurant 'The Ship', free access to the spa and gym, and a selection of great, locally-themed activities and experiences.

Chichester is just 1.5 hours by train from London, or 45 minutes' drive from Southampton and Gatwick Airports.
Here at Harbour Hotels, we understand that exceptional food & drink can enliven even the most arduous meeting or event; indeed, good ‘brain food’, as we call it, can boost your meeting’s productivity, and do wonders for your attendees’ event experience (and return rate).
Our passionate chefs have created a number of different menu options for you to select from. You may create your own bespoke set menu, opt for one of our fixed-priced, set menus, or even choose our ever-popular ‘Bring me Food’ menu, with dishes delivered platter-style for communal feasting.
With its own staging area, and a capacity of 120 guests, The Guildhall Suite is ideally suited to conferences, receptions and large events. It may be combined with the Priory Suite to host up to 130 attendees, 96 for dining.
Our smaller space, with a capacity of 24 guests seated and 35 guests for drinks, is perfect for private dinners, or smaller events, receptions and conferences.
