Three hotels in the county have been named among the "most loved" in the UK as they have received a top award. 

The hotels have secured the sought-after Good Hotel Award 2023 which recognises the venues for their room quality, service and value.

Launched in 2014, the awards are part of the long-standing Good Food Awards. 

They recognise the best hotels, B&Bs, serviced apartments and guest houses in the UK.

Petworth's Old Railway station hotel received the Blue Ribbon for Great Getaways. 

Then, the Gold Seal is awarded once a venue has had a Blue Ribbon for three consecutive years or more.

A spokesman for the Good Hotel Awards said: "Our Gold Seal is highly revered.

"It is bestowed upon hotels achieving consistently high customer ratings."

The Blanch House in Atlingworth Street, Kemp Town, received the award, as did South Lodge Hotel and Spa in Crabtree, near Horsham.
