-TV (With ample Freeview choice) and DVD player.
-Flexible room service
-Reasonable water pressure in shower head though bath takes some time to fill up.
-Fridge with a couple of complimentary bottles of water.
-A safe to store valuables
-There is a hair dryer (found in desk).
-Rooms 1 to 34 are away from the bar, resturant, reception thus quite.

Things to know about the bar:

-Tasty nibbles
-Have a drink in the bar before dining in the restaurant to enjoy some complentary canapés.

Things to know about the restaurant:
-Make a reservation to avoid disappointment.
-Waiters are very attentive, charming and knowledgeable about their menu.
-Explore a few bottles from the diverse wine menu.
-If you are not sure what to order ask the staff for their thoughts.
-We ate very well from the £38 per head 3 course Buxted menu.
-Fantastic cheese trolley that is best enjoyed with a glass of good Port.

Things to know about your breakfast:
-Within reason; whatever you want however you want!

We will return and order the Degustation menu with wine! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were disappointed to have to check out the following morning! In summary this is a fantastic hotel where you can enjoy an indulgent and relaxing break away modern hectic life.

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to list a comprehensive review of your stay with us at Buxted Park hotel.

Such an informative review provides a real insight into Buxted Park and allows myself and the team to focus on constructive feedback to improve our service and offering.

We hope to have WIFI throughout the hotel by Mid August providing a facility which all guests expect.

The degustation menu with wines accompanying each of the 7 courses is very popular; however I would recommend having a small Afternoon tea when you arrive!

I will ensure all the team are fully aware of your review and on behalf of them I look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel when I can assure you of our very best attention.

Best wishes

I booked a last minute overnight stay with dinner . It was one of the best . Great service and a well executed menu .outstanding advice ,detail and care . We asked if they could make a cocktail that we had tried but was not a main menu and they rose to the challenge with the smiling help of manger cocktail, waiter and chef . It was an absolute pleasure to watch them show off their talent and it was obvious they enjoyed helping and pleasing. I will be returning to Buxton Park and would strongly recommend it .

The purpose of our stay was a surprise for my niece's 40th Birthday.
We had a special deal for the night.
It was perfect, we were made to feel welcome and felt very homely from the time we arrived until we left.
The evening meal was set up in a beautiful dining room, it was a very personal, and very fitting as it was just family members. We couldn't have asked for better room.
The rooms were very comfortable with stunning views. Will definately go back again and have already recomended to friends.

May I ask you to pass on my best wishes to your niece on your recent birthday.

Buxted Park is ideal for such celebrations and we regularly host many private events in our featured rooms such as the library and ballroom.

I will certainly convey your kind words to all the team as I know like me they are extremely proud when receiving such praise.

Thank you for your recommendation and I look forward to welcoming you back to Buxted Park in the near future.

We stayed for just one night but from start to finish the service was amazing And the food was out of this world. The staff were friendly and the room we stayed in was 1st class. Already thinking about a second visit.

My husband and I celebrated a recent anniversary at the Buxted Park Hotel. We found a last minute deal online and booked it directly with the hotel informing them of our wedding anniversary. As soon as we arrived we were treated like 'Royalty', we were scheduled to received a complimentary upgrade but they pulled out all the stops and offered us a suite! it was total luxury.

Cream tea, dinner and breakfast were wonderful the staff can't do enough for you!

You must try it... it is truly a special place ... :)

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade if possible!
