We spent our wedding anniversary here this weekend. From the moment we drove up to the hotel, we were greeted warmly - first by the porter, then by the general manager and finally by the front desk person who showed us to our beautiful room, Holly, which was spacious and well appointed with lovely antiques, a fridge with chilled juices and waters, a fantastic bathroom with every possible amenity included soap flakes for personal washing and top of the line Jean Rhys toiletries from Cape Town. The hotel had even supplied a Sussex map with numbered dots showing where all of the local historic homes and other visitor attractions were in relation to Gravetye Manor. The gorgeous gardens have many nooks and crannies in which to have tea or just relax and enjoy the views. Dinner and breakfast, served in the quiet and attractive dining room, were both very good, if not historic, and the presentation was elegant. We'd highly recommend "The Cat" pub in nearby West Hoathly for a lunch after a walk from Gravetye.
