A travel blog entry by budjuggler


Apparently we may never have explained our prolonged use of this word! Our host at Bariloche (being a Spanish speaker) is unable to pronounce the letter 'v' and instead they use the letter 'b' - eg bino blanco. As a result of this he pronounced it grabel instead of gravel!! In spite of our trying to educate him, we failed. Hence our usage throughout. Hope this explains it!! ...

... the fairway grass was short or browned out. If there is some rain in the future, I might consider playing the course again. I shot an 85 which was 18 over par and was pleased that I was able to as well as this, given that it was a new course for me and it was the 90th round this year.

Wonderful Sussex wedding

... mother Elizabeth, and Anthony in a traditional morning suit.

The reception had a distinctly English countryside flavour with colourful bunting, hay bales and a great band. Letters of congratulations were received from the likes of the local MP, London mayor Boris Johnson, PM David Cameron and – no kidding – Her Majesty (via one of One’s ladies-in-waiting). The Best Mens’ speech centred around a ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Amberley Castle



    My husband and I stayed at Amberley Castle in May. We were impressed by the beauty and the history of the castle. Spent a wonderful afternoon exploring the incredible grounds and also the old church next door. We stayed in the Bodiam room which was actually inside the castle walls. The room was lovely and luxurious while trying to stay within the theme of the castle (don"t worry, the bathroom was beautiful and modern, even includes a nice whirlpool tub). Our bed was very comfortable. We had dinner in the restaraunt. While the meal was very expensive, it was incredible (VAT and tip included in the price). Overall, we were blown away by the experience and are telling all our friends to stay there while in England.



    My husband, I and another couple visited the castle for afternoon tea. It truly was a most memorable experience. Everything was to perfection. The grounds are beautiful and the staff very pleasant. We had our tea in the library with the open fire blazing, a beautiful setting. The food was exquisite and very plentiful. Real value for money. I would definately recommend a trip here, but don't forget to book first.

    Loved it!


    Although I didn't stay here, did have a wonderful afternoon tea. This is by appointment only but well worth it. This was the second time I have had tea there and the service was fantastic, again. It is not held in the dining room but in one of the lounges. The first time there was a blazing fire in the fireplace and with it raining outside, and a cup of tea in my hand, I thought "now this is civilized living". This time (last week) there was no fire (it wasn't raining, surprise surprise) but the effect was still the same. I would highly recommend if you are in the area to call for an appointment for afternoon tea.

    Heaven on Earth


    Amberely Castle is heaven on earth.

    Incredible - but don't walk in in jeans!


    My boyfriend and I (21 and 20) stayed here and although we had a wonderful time we felt very out of place. We walked in in jeans and sneakers after travelling all day and were looked at in shock! I understand of course that you should dress up for the restaurant etc but just to check in??? Thats a bit much! We wandered around the main part of the castle...all the time being watched as though we were about to walk off with one of the terrific suits of armour or antiques. Once we'd got out of the reception area and off to our rooms we felt better!

    Very Average


    Amberley castle is set in idyllic countryside. Despite reservations about the fact that the clientele might be slightly old and the setting a little staid I was reassured by the very positive reviews on this site and the recommendation from the 'Mr & Mrs Smith' Guide. The majority of my stay was lovely, the room was pleasant and the food in the restaurant was good the bed however was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in; soft is an understatement! After a virtually sleepless night I complained at the desk only to be told 'a note of my comments would be made'. No reduction to the bill or adequate apology was made and what should have been a romantic weekend was ruined by having to return home the next morning to get some sleep!

    Loved it


    Not strange at all. My husband and I just spent a night alone there celebrating our 11th anniversary and yes we left our four children with their grandparents, its not a hotel for children. The castle and grounds are beautiful, staff was very nice and helpful and our dinner was excellent. My husband and I were the youngest couple there, we are in our thirties but who cares? We went for the history and romance and we got both. The castle is quiet and beautiful and you can climb up the walls and walk around everywhere and really get a feel for the history, they also gave us a complimentary book on the castle which was nice. We meet the owner a few times, sitting out with his dogs and he is very nice too. I would highly recommend this castle to anyone.

    No kids allowed


    It might be a nice place for mom and lawyer dad but without kids, as they do not accept kids less than 12 years old. Seems to be a strange place.



    Amberley Castle, even in the dead of winter, is the most wonderful location for a romantic wedding anniversary celebration. The service is beyond compare, unintrusive and professional, and the rooms are just out of this world. A variety of delightful animals add to the beauty of the experience. Quite simply, Amberley Castle has to be seen to be believed!!!

    One of the BEST in the world!


    I have visited 40+ countries in the world and have stayed at hundreds of properties. Amberley Castle, quite simply, is truly one of THE best in the world. You know you are entering a different world when you pull up to the gate, it slowy opens as if by magic, and there in front of you is your stunning 900-year old castle for the duration of your stay!
