Set in a Grade II listed historic townhouse, originally built for local hero Admiral Sir George Murray, our boutique hotel, with a subterranean spa and in-house restaurant, blends contemporary interiors with period features.

The Ship

A fine showcase of the region’s tastes and flavours, The Ship is the go-to, all-day hangout in Chichester, great for coffee, a decadent afternoon tea, simple fish and chips, or the latest gastronomic creation.



Private dining, weddings and corporate events find a home within the characterful event spaces of The Guildhall Suite and The Priory Suite. Feel like you’re hosting an event within your own private residence.



Take a deep dive into Chichester’s only spa and emerge renewed, refreshed and revived. Featuring four luxurious treatment rooms and natural TempleSpa remedies, treat someone special or just spoil yourself.


Sophisticated yet stylish many rooms, suites and our oh-so-luxurious private cottage, overlook Priory Park and the rooftops towards famous Chichester Cathedral.
