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

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.

Good service with a special mention to Liam one of staff in the dining room who was a good representation of how staff should interact with customers
Other Comments
Negative comments would be hotel lacked some atmosphere with decoration and would question how the hotel was awarded 2 AA rosettes as the food was not good with a lot of basic skills lacking which included overcooked seasonal vegetables, non filletted fish and suprisingly fish fillets in a Chicken Ceasar Salad!!!! Sandwiches were made with shop bought bread an for just under £10 per sandwich would expect fresh local backed bread.
