The hotel is in a lovely setting in the Sussex countryside with close access to the A23. We went for afternoon tea which was a gift package. The food quality was excellent with freshly made delicious sandwiches, warm scones and cakes. Very friendly staff. The hotel is a little dated but the excellent food and friendly staff more than made...

What a fantastic venue for a large business meeting. An amazing breakfast spread today (I will not eat for a week....) Plenty of parking, awesome views and friendly professional and helpful staff. Highly recommend. I'll be hosting all my meetings here in future. Thank you.

We had booked the Hickstead due to its close proximity to the Bolney Estate vineyard which we were visiting for a pre-booked tour. Apart from a ridiculously expensive taxi from the vineyard to the hotel, our weekend stay was excellent and such good value for money. Our stay included a 3 course dinner with wine, bed and breakfast for £109...

My husband and I were given a Red Letter Day voucher for Afternoon Tea as an anniversary present and chose Hickstead as the venue as it was the nearest place to our home. We had never been to the hotel before and were delighted to find the hotel just off the A23 set in the most delightful surroundings. A plethora...

We were given a voucher as a gift for Afternoon Tea, not being afternoon Tea people we were not sure what to expect. What a lovely surprise it turned out to be. The Tea was very large and really good, as we could not manage all our cakes a member of staff kindly packed them for us to take home....

We first came here a few years ago as a present from our children and really enjoyed the stay. Last year, my wife found an offer for the hotel and as we enjoyed our first stay so much, we booked again. Sadly last time, due to the behaviour of a group of disruptive and rude guests, our stay was spoilt....

I often stay at the Hickstead Hotel for work. The location is great, the staff are amazingly friendly and it feels like home from home. The rooms are very comfortable and they have baths too!! The breakfast is great and the bar offers a good range of beers.

It's always good to be asked how your stay was when checking out. This didn't happen when I left The Hickstead. Maybe they didn't care? If asked I would have pointed out that my room was cold and I couldn't adjust the temperature and the bed felt old, lumpy and the mattress at least in need of replacing. Just not...
