“Midsummer's Wedding at Buxted Park Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Our Great Granddaughter chose Buxted Park for her Wedding Blessing, June 21st, and my wife and I decided to stay the night following the celebrations. Buxted Park provided everything needed for a memorable Day. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment from finding a car park space right outside in the quaint fountain courtyard, the greeting at reception, the staff, the food and the comfort of the Classic Double Room. In the morning, breakfast was self service in the Orangerie, a delightful room overlooking the lawn with extensive views of the surrounding country. After a more than adequate breakfast we walked around the gardens and grounds which are most beautiful although would benefit from some fine 'tweaking' by good gardeners.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor.

I was delighted to read you enjoyed your Granddaughters wedding and that you took advantage to stay overnight.

Breakfast in the Orangery is indeed stunning and looking over the lawns and estate there cannot be a more perfect place to start your day.

I will certainly convey our kind words to all the team members and look forward to welcoming you back to Buxted Park Hotel in the near future

Best wishes

We attended a wedding at Buxted Park on the 2/8/2014 and were so impressed with the beautiful grounds, attentive staff who were great fun, great food and most comfortable hotel bed ever. Rooms were clean, tastefully decorated and had everything we needed. What was very impressive was the service that included the repatriation of precious cuddle toys home. Included in the package was a hand written note confirming that all had been looked after and were pleased to be home. Lovely personal touch. Thank you for making our stay such a great one and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms had air-conditioning and loved that ours had a door leading into the garden so go for...

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review on Trip Advisor.

I was pleased to read you enjoyed the wedding and that the team looked after you so well.

Most important was to read that your children’s cuddle toys made a safe return home after being left behind.

On behalf of all the team I look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel when I can assure you of our very best attention.

We arrived on a Monday, for a two night stay and we had a delightful room, very comfortable. However, we didn't have the complimentary bath robes but only realised this as we were leaving. Room was clean and airy with air con, which we were very pleased about. We ate in the restaurant both evenings and the waiters were very friendly and attentive. We felt that Monday nights service on the whole was better and we had a very relaxed meal. Tuesday evening, there was a retirement function taking place and we had to wait 35 minutes to be seated in the dining area. The waiters were still very attentive and friendly but we felt it was a little rushed. The food was very good. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the steak medallions, my Lamb was a little too greasy, but still very nice. Desserts were superb as were the starters. The cheese tart we had Tuesday was pleasant, mine was a little runny compared to my husbands. The breakfast was very good with lots of choice.
We enjoyed our stay immensely and are thinking about the murder mystery weekend in November.
A Beautiful hotel in beautiful surrounding next time we will stay longer.

We chose Buxted Park as the venue for our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with our decision! From start to finish, the staff were amazing and the planning was made simple and stress-free. It was the perfect day and everything went as planned - we wouldn't have changed a thing. We had so many comments from our guests saying how well organised the day was and seamlessly it ran. Buxted Park is a beautiful setting with stunning grounds - but it's the staff who really make it. They went above and beyond to ensure every last detail was tended to. Amazing.

Midweek and there was a wedding going on. We had to push our way through the bar to the dining room used for Sunday lunches. This room is very bright and modern and we had it to ourselves! We were well looked after and, being a very hot day, we opted for the 2 course menu. The fish was very good, they had run out of our first choice of dessert, so we had to choose something different but that was also very good. We were well looked after.
This hotel has changed hands several times over the last 25 years, so we have seen a considerable amount of change. The hotel is surrounded by parkland, a lovely situation.

Room Tip: I could not write about the restaurant alone, so had to choose the hotel.

What an amazing venue! Having held our monthly PA & Support staff meeting yesterday, on behalf of all who attended -THANK YOU Buxted Park.
The Orangery meeting room with it's garden view was picturesque, the afternoon tea was divine, the attentive nature of all Handpicked staff was so refreshing.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for any occasion whether business or pleasure.

My husband and I returned to this beautiful house, where we held our wedding reception 10 years ago! And it just makes me smile, I fell in love with it's elegance, charm, beauty, style, and grace,the suites in the main house are out of this world, with amazing views, they are named after famous people who have stayed there, the grounds are stunning and a walk down to the lake is breathtaking! The staff are really friendly and not at all stuck up, they can not do enough for you, and they just have a good sense of humour. The food is well presented, and delicious, and the full English the next day was scrumptious, with continental breakfast, yoghurt, fruits, granola, strawberries, croissants, lovely selection of twinings teas! The crystal bar is really relaxing, stunning chandelier and marble mantelpieces and leather chairs with views over to the orangery and lawns, and bar manager Rob, he is a lovely guy, and was even there when we had our wedding and remembers us! Top guy!! And so is the lovely food and beverage manager,we had afternoon tea with a selection of homemade scones and pretty pastries and sandwiches! So please visit this beautiful house, and be sure to go back and visit it again, but don't tell anyone as it's all mine!!!!!!

Thank you for your comprehensive review on Trip Advisor.

I was delighted to read you enjoyed your stay and that after 10 years the hotel still had that charm, elegance, beauty and style you enjoyed on your wedding day.

I will certainly convey your kind words to the team especially Rob our bars manager who has this year celebrated 10 years of service. Rob will receive a WOW voucher in recognition of the service and hospitality you received.

I fully appreciate you wanting to keep Buxted a secret! And on behalf of all the team we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future.
