Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Set on a 312-acre estate roamed by fallow deer, Buxted Park Hotel offers an upscale country house-style stay in rural East Sussex. This 4-AA-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-length windows, and dine in the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant. There's also a terrace overlooking the grounds.

Bedrooms are decorated in elegant style and have free Wi-Fi. Higher room categories have living space, DVD players and views of the grounds, while lavish suites with period accents include details such as coffee machines, fireplaces and 4-poster beds. Some bedrooms are in a garden wing.

We enjoyed the location of this beautiful building in the parkland and the space there is in the local surrounding. The view from our window was unimpeded and a joy to wake up to.

There seems to be a real challenge with some aspects e.g. we had to wait for a long while to be taken to the dining room. Some of the young waiters seemed a bit tense. Breakfast on Wednesday morning was not good enough compared with Thursday morning, especially the presentation. I do understand that there were 2 different venues for breakfast and that may have contributed to this situation. The continental meat board was very poor indeed. There were no bowls to put the very sparce fruit salad in and there was definitely a shortage of staff. Incidentally, both myself and another client complained about the over saltiness of our fish dish. There was also no Croft Original Cherry at the bar. Neither the Tio Pepe or Harveys was suitable for my taste buds. So I had water instead. There was no robe in our bedroom. Apart from these minor but important niggles, we enjoyed our stay. Most unpalatable of all was the visual appearance of the French Headwaiter's ONE CENTRAL TOOTH only.
