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

"Really good for a weekend away. Service from staff could not have been better. Extensive grounds to wander in."

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.

We've also negotiated a 3-course Sunday lunch for two, for £29, a 2-course set-menu lunch for two, for £25 and an afternoon tea for two, for £29.

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.

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!

Spent three nights here in late July. Scorching weather so air-con in room welcome. Nice hotel in stunning location. Money towards the meal part of the package but would probably not choose to eat here normally. Shame there's no draught beer available, but 75cl bottle of prosecco very welcome on arrival to drink out on the terrace after dinner. Room perfectly good and staff all friendly and helpful. Breakfast good standard especially the fresh fruit selection.

Plenty to do within 20 mile radius, Eastbourne, Beachy Head and numerous NT properties.
