This hotel was chosen due to its proximity to Gatwick Airport. Unfortunately we arrived at Gravetye at the tail end of our vacation, a little weary and sad because we had just learned that our beloved dog died in our absence. The sky was grey and overcast, it was chilly, and it kept us from walking the incredible gardens -... More

just stopped in for drinks... and VERY pleased we did! the entire place is full of magic, don't have any better way to describe it as from the moment we crossed the gates into the manor we were transported to a different land... the place is grand yet organic to the acres of land that surround it.

Steeped in centuries old peace, this stunning small manor house exudes calm. The rooms are comfortable and gracious and the restaurant is superb, with seasonal food beautifully presented.The gardens are deep and green and wonderfully planted, with old brick walls and a productive potager. If you ever get the chance to stay here, take it. You won't regret it.

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...

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
