The Highdown Hotel, in Littlehampton Road, was bought by hospitality company Brunning and Price last year, with a promise of 'marrying the old with the new'.

It was closed for renovations in November 2018, but the refurbishment is almost finished, with plans to reopen the hotel, pub and tea rooms on Tuesday, February 26.

We've got some pictures from behind the scenes of the renovations, showing what potential guests have to look forward to.
