Overview

Buxted Park Hotel is set on a 312-acre estate roamed by fallow deer, in rural East Sussex. This AA 4-Red-Star lodging occupies a striking Palladian mansion dating from the 18th century, and has hosted suitably grand guests including William Wordsworth, Winston Churchill and Marlon Brando.

Glyndebourne, the renowned opera house, is a 20-minute drive away, while National Trust property Wakehurst Place -- an Elizabethan manor with ornamental gardens -- and Anne Boleyn's childhood home Hever Castle, are within 35 minutes' drive. The hilltop town of Rye, "often described as England's quaintest town… a little nugget of the past" (Lonely Planet), takes an hour to reach by car.

Ornate columns, intricate plasterwork and a gilt coat of arms decorate Buxted Park Hotel's grand lobby lounge. Guests can relax with coffee, cocktails and afternoon tea by the fireplace in the bar, which features high ceilings, chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows, and dine in the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant. There's also a terrace with views of the grounds.

Classic Rooms are split between the main house and the garden wing. Executive Rooms are larger than Classic Rooms and are in the garden wing. Wi-Fi is free.

Our room was very comfortable and nicely furnished, with an extremely comfortable Superking bed. We had lovely views over beautiful landscape, and a pleasant balcony to sit out on. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Food was good (though not particularly exciting.) A nice touch having complementary water and fresh milk in the fridge.

We were disappointed to have been put next door to a very loud and raucous family staying in room 21, who kept us awake until 2am drunkenly shouting at each other. They also had the audacity to order drinks for themselves on our Room 22. We only discovered this when we were leaving the hotel and paying the bill, and could easily have missed it. There should be a better system for the night porter to ensure that people pay cash for late night drinks, Preventing such scams. We would have liked some acknowledgement from the hotel that it was our 44th Wedding Anniversary. This was stated on our booking, but was not mentioned on our arrival. The hotel seemed rather distracted in making preparations and setting up for a wedding which was happening the next day.

The grounds are lovely and staff were very welcoming and friendly. Dining staff were always happy to chat and offer help if needed.

My only criticism would be at the availability of televisions in hotel rooms. I know I'm probably in a minority here, but on our second night our neighbours were perhaps hard of hearing and couldn't live without tv noise. It would be great if some rooms were available that were tv free. Thoughtless neighbours apart, we hope to return.

Great Margarita - thank you Luke. Lovely food both for dinner and breakfast. Service excellent- thank you Liam. Nice room My daughter and grandson arrived for breakfast to surprise me for my birthday. Liam welcomed them and without a fuss, sat them at our table and provided them with breakfast - thank you!

Booked the hotel for the night before my birthday as a treat. Obviously hotel was quiet which is why promotion was on but went to the bar early afternoon and we was the only couple there. The bar was silent, not even any background music to add atmosphere. Had a lovely meal in the evening in the restaurant (Liam was a real star and looked after us beautifully) but we came out into the bar after and again it was just the two of us - we had a great cocktail but again sat in silence. Such a shame when I was really looking for a relaxed evening and the chance to celebrate my birthday. So we left after a drink and was in bed by 9.45pm Such a shame about the atmosphere- it could be such a great place to relax, read the paper and spend some time. A little music would transform this bar.
