History of the hotel

Buxted Park dates back to the 12th century and has been enjoyed as a seat of power and prestige for many of those 900 years.

The present house was built almost 300 years ago by Thomas Medley, whose family had been keepers of the Privy Purse in the reign of Henry VIII. Clearly even in those days there was money to be made in tax collection.

At the beginning of the 20th Century the house was purchased by the renowned designer of the Savoy in London, Basil Ionides. He and his wife were great entertainers and good friends of George V and Queen Mary, who were regular guests at the house.

In 1940 disaster struck, when much of the house was destroyed by fire. The top storey was lost and the shortage of materials during the war meant it was not possible to replace it. For Basil, who is reputed to still reside at the house, the war was not all bad news. The blitz meant he was able to restore Buxted Park with some of the finest architectural pieces at little or no cost. Basil visited bombed out buildings salvaging covings, cornices, chandeliers and beautiful show doors, all of which you will see around you today at Buxted Park.

Following the death of Basil and his wife the Rt. Hon Nellie, the house was purchased by Kenneth Shipman, the owner of Twickenham Studios. He used it to entertain his stars, with guests such as Marlon Brando, Dudley Moore and Gregory Peck regulars at the house. He even built a cinema to view his latest productions, which is still in use today. This period also saw a return to the house of Sir Winston and Lady Churchill, who had also been regular guests in the time of the Ionides'.

SD, Hampshire, stayed: October 2018

Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The restaurant was a bit mixed. The food was good as was the wine once it arrived. Our starters arrived and our selected wine was shown to us however we had virtually finished our starter by the time we got someone's attention to get our wine and pour it. The waitress came and collected our starter plates and asked us if we would like to see the dessert menu, she was a little mortified when we said we would prefer our main course :) still we had a lovely meal and good stay. Breakfast was very good and staff friendly

Lovely rural setting but too busy and noisy for a relaxing break.

Anon, stayed: September 2018

Hotel is in a lovely rural setting with beautiful grounds. The staff were very attentive and very helpful and couldn't be faulted. Dinner and breakfast were very good. However, the restaurant is situated in a room with no windows which is a pity as there are stunning views from the hotel and I feel the hotel has missed a trick maybe. On the day of departure there was some sort of team building activity with an obstacle course on the lawn right outside the ground floor guest bedrooms which have french doors leading to a small terrace. A lot of noise setting up and loud talking which meant it wasn't possible to sit out with any privacy. In addition no chance of a lie-in if you wanted one. Not that there was any chance of that because the two rooms either side of mine were having some form of refurbishement which required furniture being moved, carpet being taken up and drilling going on from early morning!! Too noisy for a relaxing hotel stay.

Buxted Park

PH, Surrey, stayed: March 2018

The hotel was very welcoming, there were just two mistakes that were made. We had paid for chocolates which were forgotten by the team, and we were given chocolate patisseries from the kitchen which was not the same thing, and we booked a table for dinner for 7 o'clock on the second night but were not called to the table until 7.35pm, as my wife has diabetes, it is important for us to eat meals at the right time. The reason given for the delay was that everyone had come to the bar at the same time, but table time should still be adhered to. We regretted not saying something on the night, but we do not find complaining easy. These were small points; we enjoyed our stay and would go again
