Reviewed February 27, 2014

I received an e mail from Handpicked having stayed at Nutfield Priory in January and took advantage of their offer for a one night stay of B&B a bottle of champagne and an evening meal. Buxted Park is local to my partner and I so we decided to give it a go.
We could not fault anything about our stay.
We enjoy our short breaks and don't look for trouble or problems but usualy something crops up or is noticed that could be improved upon.
Not here, all the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful our evening meal was superb and breakfast was too! The restaurant and bar areas are very pleasant the bar area being in keeping with the period of the house and the restaurant leading off from it more modern in style and cleverly done.
Connie who waited for us at dinner and breakfast was lovely and our Maitre d for the evening was very professional and helpful and didn't hover as some do!
It is clear that the Hotel is very 'big' on weddings and I am sure if you are looking for a quiet break things may be slightly different it would pay to ask when you book about weddings or parties we took pot luck mid week and everywhere was quiet. The room was spacious and I think the most basic but it was perfect for us, spotless with lovely views of the grounds and everything worked!
We cannot wait to return and fortunatly don't live far away I hope they send me another offer soon!
Superb.

Short breaks are very popular and we regularly welcome guests back several times a year to experience the Buxted Park hospitality.

I will certainly relay your kind words to Connie who looked after you for both dinner and breakfast.

Myself and 13 members of my family stayed at Buxted Park for my 40th birthday. I arranged a celebratory dinner and bed and breakfast through Holly, events coordinator at the hotel. Holly was great and made this process easy and met all my requests and needs.
On arrival we were greeted by Philip who turned out to be our dedicated host for the evening as well. The hotel is beautiful and well managed with stunning grounds. The staff were friendly and professional and more than happy to help with any requests.
The food was delicious, appetisingly hot and elegantly presented. The rooms were spotlessly clean and had eveything you need for an overnight stay. The attention to detail did not go unnoticed with bathrobes, sumptuously soft and fluffy towels, ironing board and iron as standard and the lovely bonus of fresh milk in the fridge which makes all the difference to any hot beverages made in your room.
The only downside to this hotel was that they do not have a swimming pool or wet area but we managed to while away the time we allocated to swim in the Crystal bar and taking cream tea in the Orangery.
Well done Buxted Park we will be back

Room Tip: first floor rooms are lovely with rooms 31 and 33 having the added bonus of a balcony

Me and my new wife recently had our wedding ceremony at Buxted park and not just ourselves but many family and friends stayed for the occasion. All the staff were welcoming and attentive throughout our stay. We cannot speak highly enough of the service we received our stay was superb the venue is magic and our wedding was everything we could have wished for!

We stayed for one night and we would have liked it to be more. The greeting on arrival was very good and we booked in without any problems. Nice size room and good bathroom which were all very clean. Good views of the gardens, and the doors also opened onto a patio area.

The service in the crystal bar and the very nice modern restaurant was excellent. The food was very good and the portion sizes were good. The breakfast was held in the bright and pleasant orangery, was all buffet style with all the normal choices for breakfast which was all excellent quality.

All the staff were very friendly and attentive at all times

We would use this hotel again, and are looking at others within the group.

My wife and I booked a one night stay which included champagne before a three course dinner and breakfast.
On arrival we were greeted with such friendly staff which we found to be the norm for all the staff we met, in the bar, at dinner and at breakfast - they all made you feel so welcome and made the stay such a lovely break.
The three course dinner was excellent and very delicious, as was the full English breakfast which was cooked to order.
Our room was of a very high standard, spotlessly clean, very comfortable and with a lovely view over the park.
When we retired to bed we found the bed had been turned down and a glass and bottle of water left at each side of the bed - lovely little touch to end the day.
We hope to stay again when day and would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a lovely break away.

My daughter and I stayed here for a last minute and much needed two night break this week and had a wonderful time. We booked through Secret Escapes and the deal was extraordinary, with champagne before a three course dinner both nights and a delicious breakfast each morning. The staff were all exceptionally friendly, the room wasn't huge but spotlessly clean and looked out onto the beautiful park, where we went for a long walk on our first morning. The whole atmosphere of the place was one of friendliness and relaxation and we were treated with great care. I look forward to staying again in the summer.

Room Tip: Room quite small but not uncomfortably so.
