It is an old world building that has been wonderfully maintained and the additions do not detract from its character. They must have a massive heating bill because where ever I went it was warm and cosy, so often these kind of establishment (which I love) can have cold spots. Beautiful views from the breakfast lounge over the terraces across the lawns to a flowing lake visible amongst the trees and bushes added to the ambience in the room created by the silver service of the breakfast waiting team. I was on my own but definitely would come here with somebody special in my life for a romantic weekend or so.
It is the wrong side of East Grinstead if you have to get to Gatwick in the morning, traffic is horrendous. But this is a small price to pay for the style and comfort you have received before entering back into the madding crowds!
Polite and welcoming staff. Close to Royal Ashdown Forest Golf Club. A very comfortable night followed by excellent breakfast.
room was a bit cold, and needed the housekeeping to remedy.
Hotel set within beautiful countryside. The food was fabulous (both dinner and breakfast). All the staff were impeccable at all times and very happy and helpful with any request. The room was large, very comfortable bed and ours had a great view. Despite a wedding being on at the same time, the wedding party was separated from the other guests so didn't impact on our stay. We both had Spa treatments and both were very good.
The country club jacuzzi being used by very young children without any apparent adult supervision. No steam room or sauna in the Spa. Parking wasn't as readily available as it could have been on check in (mainly due to a large wedding party). We had to walk a fair way in the heavy rain. The East Wing lift was "very" small - we had to use this as my wife has a knee injury.
The location is amazing, the grounds are beautiful as is the building. The Spa is well equipped and the treatments are good.
The hotel needs a good refurbish from a paint, carpet, draining system perspective. The hallways to our rooms were very smelly (we mentioned it to the front desk) and the overall look needs to be refreshed. It's a little old. Waiting staff needs to be more friendly (front desk was lovely). Breakfast needs a proper upgrade for the current pricing. The fruit offering was poor (mainly canned), the pastries were far from being fresh, and there needs to be a a la carte menu. I just wanted a coffee and porridge and was told I needed to pay for the full breakfast. Very disappointed by that in particular.
When you stay at Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club in Forest Row, you'll be near the airport, a 1-minute drive from Ashdown Forest and 10 minutes from Sheffield Park Garden. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. Free self parking is available onsite.
