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.

A lovely hotel which had the most beautiful Christmas decorations.I was unfortunate enough to injure myself when the revolving door was apparently quicker than me and led to a cut on my arm. The receptionist Andrea was excellent and patched up the cut and stopped the bleeding.She later followed this up to ensure I was ok. Would my wife and I visit again, most certainly. Well done east Sussex National

On a Travelzoo Room, Breakfast, Meal and bottle of wine offer. We had a really enjoyable overnight stay. Lovely big pool as well. Only disappointment was that the offer didn't make clear that the choice of menu was very restricted. 3 very ordinary starters, mains and desserts to choose from. The food was good and well cooked but it was disappointing there was not a broader, more interesting selection.
