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

"Everything - great staff, excellent food and lovely grounds - the best Travelzoo we have had."

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.

The grounds are what makes it truly special but all the staff are lovely and helpful.

I have taken a star off since we had some workers with a large noisy lift doing repair work right outside our room making noise and dust. No one mentioned this to us on arrival at the desk. However, I happened to mention it to someone on the staff in passing and she herself came back to offer us one of two other rooms. We appreciated her effort and moved upstairs to a different room. However, they really shouldn't have been booking out this room at all in my opinion. You couldn't have used the terrace anyway. I would be most careful before booking next time. Otherwise it's a great place. The dining/breakfast room is very claustraphobic and in my opinion unattractive. A shame they don't always use the Orangery.

The location and the staff

The reception hall was drab and not inviting. It appears that the main function for Buxted Park Hotel is for weddings, above all else. The dining room has no windows. Considering the price to stay at BPH, the general appearance is tired. When checking out of the hotel, I was charged for drinks which I had not had the previous evening. The receptionist dealt with this and gave me a further discount.
