Our stay at Gravetye Manor was delightful - elegance with a small, intimate, homey feel. The staff was exceptional - helpful, friendly, and ever present (everyone seemed happy to work there). Our room was beautiful, spotless, and with every amenity one needed. The food was delicious, served elegantly, and paired perfectly and precisely with the wines. The gardens are Fabulous!!!!!!...

An anniversary treat took us to Gravetye for an overnight stay in Bay room, which was delightful with perfect views of the garden on 2 sides and beautifully quiet. The gardens were the perfect place for a walk and an al fresco lunch. Reception staff were very welcoming. We were very pleased to have a reservation for dinner that evening,... More

A friend and I decided to treat ourselves to lunch at Gravetye and a visit to their lovely gardens. The food and service were excellent with an unexpected amuse bouche that was delicious made with fresh peas and decorated with flowers. We both had mackerel followed by veal and enjoyed it very much. The gardens are superb particularly the kitchen... More

What better way to celebrate your 70th birthday, than lunch or dinner at Gravetye Manor.We joined our friend for lunch and found out it was her third birthday celebration here this year. A late Elizabethan manor house set in a thousand acres of wooded parklands. It was the home of William Robinson, whose initials adorn the heavy iron gates at... More

We held my wife's 0th (!) birthday at Gravetye last week. This was a day that 36 of us will always remember. From the moment we arrived at Mid-day to the moment we left at 8pm (long lunch!!) everything was perfect. The service, the food, the ambiance and the weather and of course the amazing gardens... This was Gravetye at... More

Lovely hotel, superb grounds, magical breakfasts outside, and and well worth staying for these alone. Excellent service, bar nobody there to help with carrying cases on arrival (but probably a brief aberration). Nice touches like proper coffee with fresh milk in the room for that all important kick start in the morning. Wonderfully quiet - lobby off room to exclude... More

I know I keep going on about Gravetye, this is my 5th trip there in two years. Sitting in the heavenly gardens having breakfast is unsurpassable and the garden lunch menu and dinner are wonderful. The service is so friendly and they could not be more accommodating. Can't wait to go back in August. The opera house is only 35... More

The Glyndebourne season and Gravetye seem to go hand in hand. We have for a long time had a close tie with the opera house, although 40 minutes away many opera goers choose us as their preferred hotel. Kind regards Andrew Thomason Managing Director More

Gravetye is one of our favourite places ever. Living in Sussex, we often visit simply for dinner and to marvel at the beautiful gardens. Last night we stayed which we really should do more often...absolutely every aspect of our stay was perfect from arrival to departure. As all members of the staff are wonderful, it feels unfair to single out... More

This incredibly charming country estate is a gardener's dream. Set among rolling hills and amidst of many acres of phenomenal gardens, the manor itself is warm, beautiful, and rich in English hospitality. The variety of wild gardens, walled gardens, and manicured gardens begs you to take hours to explore. Be prepared for isolation as there is no where else around... More

Our head gardener Tom Coward will be thrilled by your comments.
