Why We Love It

  • This property, which has been awarded four AA Silver Stars, is set in 1100 acres of countryside
  • The Pavilion Restaurant holds two AA Rosettes
  • Facilities at the hotel include a spa, a gym and two golf courses
  • Lewes, famous for its castle, is 15 minutes' drive; Brighton is around 40 minutes' drive away


East Sussex National, which holds four AA Silver Stars, is around 10 minutes' drive from the South Downs National Park (an International Dark Sky Reserve) and the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making the hotel a great base from which to explore their rolling hills and bustling market towns.

There are plenty of sites for history buffs to explore. In Lewes, which is 15 minutes' drive away, there is a ruinous Norman castle and a priory, as well as a Tudor house that belonged to Anne of Cleves. Battle, where the Battle of Hastings took place in 1066, is around 40 minutes' drive away, as is Brighton, home of the famous Pavilion.

The Pavilion Restaurant has two AA Rosettes and serves a collection of dishes prepared with ingredients sourced from local suppliers. The Hunnington Restaurant and Ryder Bar & Terrace is in the golf club house and serves traditional home cooking, light lunches and sandwiches. The Sussex Lounge has outdoor seating in the gardens or on the balcony terrace.

The health club offers aerobics classes (supplements apply) and its facilities include an indoor swimming pool, a spa pool, a sauna, a steam room and a gym. Horsted Spa has an aromatherapy room, a monsoon shower, a Jacuzzi, a steam room, a sauna and a relaxation room. Massages and exfoliation treatments are available at a supplement, but there is limited availability in the spa on weekends and treatments should be pre-booked. There are also two golf courses: the East Course and West Course.

Club Rooms have free Wi-Fi and private balconies overlooking the golf course.

Other Comments
We had a 2 course meal included in the price, which Offered a limited menu of 3 starters, 3 main courses and 3 desserts. The main course of chicken we both had was very good, but the last course of cheese and biscuits, was not good. 4 savoury biscuits each and 2 tiny bits of cheese and chutney. There was no stilton, just brie.

The room was large and airy, the bathroom was lovely and the mattress was comfortable, but let down by poor pillows.
Other Comments
The service was very poor. When I asked the waitress for a cappuccino at breakfast she rolled her eyes and said yes in a way that made it clear she didn't really want to get it for me. At checkout the receptionist didn't ask if we enjoyed our stay, and seemed to be very bored with having to take payment and check us out. In addition the cooked breakfast was dried out and extremely disappointing. I've had consistently better breakfasts at a Premier Inn. Lastly the pillows were rock hard, meaning neither my husband nor I were able to get a good night's sleep. It's a shame they don't offer the same good night guarantee that Premier Inn do, I thought that a 4 star hotel would do better than this.
