This luxurious hotel, set in a 1,100 acre estate is a fine example of high-Victorian architecture with its distinctive chequered brickwork, splendid exuberant Pugin staircase and grounds laid out by Geoffrey Jellicoe.
Day rooms, which are off an elegant central hall running the length of the house, include a library and a large lounge, boasting two real fires in winter. There are excellent meeting rooms for business users and Wi-Fi is available in the public rooms.
Individually decorated in some style, bedrooms vary somewhat in size but all are furnished with good reproduction antiques, and offer all sorts of comforts from books and magazines to fruit and mineral water. All have modern TV's with extra satellite channels, direct dial phones and all in expected modern facilities including plush en suite bathrooms. There are 5 larger rooms particularly suitable for families, but they don't cater for children of under 7 years of age.
The top-class East Sussex National Golf Club is incorporated in the grounds, and guests can play for a reduced green fee.
They also let out a twin-bedded Mews Cottage, 600 yards from the main house.
