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

"Peaceful country location."

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.

The elegant bedrooms have free Wi-Fi. Some bedrooms are in a garden wing.

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.

without exception the staff were extremely helpful and because my partner and myself both have mobility problems, they went the extra mile to ensure that we were well looked after. It was nice too to see a number of elderly staff, again very capable and looked after us so well.

Peaceful country location.

Food and dining experience is exceptional, but I do object to paying £3.50 extra for a small dish of about half a dozen carrots, and the same for half a dozen potatoes!
