I love this hotel and have stayed twice now with my husband on the dinner bed and breakfast tariff. The value for money is great considering you can access the outstanding spa on both the day of arrival and day of departure. The rooms are always clean and of a high standard with all the facilities you would expect. I... More

We stayed for a one night break in one of the spa suites. Tucked away up a quiet lane in the little village of Cuckfield the hotel has obviously been added to over the centuries but the main public rooms are charming and very comfortable. On arrival we were shown to the terrace where we had a light lunch while... More

My family and I had a special birthday to celebrate and decided to treat ourselves to dinner at Ockenden Manor. The restaurant was full as it was a Saturday evening but nothing was rushed. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was a delight. The staff are very attentive without being obtrusive. After dinner we had coffee and chocolates in... More

The hotel is an historic Sussex hotel, set in charming gardens. Our room was in the eves of the Elizabethan portion of the house. It was spacious and well appointed. We had the company of nesting jackdaws in the adjoining chimney and the joy of an extra climb up a flight of very narrow stairs, meaning that we were effectively... More

An easy 35 minute drive to Glyndbourne we can also organize a driver for guests if they wish. We do always suggest booking in advance for the restaurant and also for any treatments in the Spa. I hope we may see you again this Glyndbourne Season. With kind regards Adam Smith More

This is a nice hotel well situated about 25 mins from Brighton. Lots of pros, pleasant staff, spacious bedrooms and clean bathrooms. Lovely views over the well kept gardens. The hotel has a fabulous indoor pool and spa complex with outdoor pool and hot tub. Dinner was very good indeed, asparagus soup, halibut with mushroom and red wine reduction was... More

Thank you for your kind comments, I was disappointed that you did not find the mattress comfortable as we have handmade Vispring Mattresses along with Goose Down Duvets along feather pillows although we do of course offer hypoallergenic alternatives. With kind regards Adam Smith More

We went to celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary and were hoping for a memorable evening given we don't normally go to Michelin starred restaurants. Unfortunately it was a big disappointment. I was expecting to try something like never before. The food was of good quality, but with no vegetables and no sauce, it was a somewhat dry affair. And a... More

Thank you for your comments regarding dinner, I was disappointed your didn’t enjoy your meal. The style of our food remains modern French and the Lemon Tart is one of Stephen Crane’s signature dishes. Food provenance is of great importance to Ockenden Manor and we work with many local suppliers to source the very best Sussex has to offer. With... More

I've stayed here twice, each for only one night. I love the place. The food is terrific, the staff are really nice, and the spa is one of the nicest I have ever been in. The rooms we have stayed in have been very nice - nothing special but clean and comfortable, and actually they have a very nice atmosphere.... More

So my wife and I decided to spend a weekend away a few days before our third wedding anniversary, and since she had been to Ockenden Manor previously, she suggested going there, since it's pretty close to Brighton. The main building is gorgeous, and makes a great first impression. Checkin was quick and courteous, and we had already paid for... More

Loved this place. We were just having dinner, but we liked it so much that we wished we could have stayed overnight. From the moment we entered, we felt relaxed and at home. A charming and friendly staff undoubtedly enhanced our experience. We reclined in the delightful sitting room with delicious canapés and selected our menu choices. Dinner was delicious-thought-provoking... More
