Why We Love This Hotel

  • This "attractive" (The AA) hotel occupies an elegant Grade II-listed mansion dating from the 18th century
  • The property is set in over 300 acres of parkland featuring lakes and a deer park
  • Ashdown Forest, where Henry VIII used to hunt and where AA Milne found inspiration for Winnie-the-Pooh, is a 15-minute drive away
  • The hotel's fine-dining restaurant holds two AA Rosettes

"So pleased we booked this break. The hotel was lovely with friendly but efficient staff. Grounds were great for a relaxing stroll to the lake. Dinner was ok but could be better. Breakfast was good."

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.

A series of issues arose during our stay connected with service in the bar and the restaurant followed by housekeeping failing to service our room. We did discuss this with management and to their credit they dealt with our comments well and followed up in a very positive way.

We were fortunate to be upgraded by the hotel (without asking) to a suite which was fabulous. Lovely staff.

I think perhaps Travelzoo should make it clear in their offer clear that although a £35 per person allowance is made for dinner a discretionary 10% service charge is added to all restaurant bills, which means to the whole of one’s dinner bill. We were very happy with the service and chose to pay this but it could come as a bit of a shock!

Poor service at the meal on Sunday but was very well resolved at checkout by the duty manager.
