Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were only in a standard room, but this was terrible. Staying at a premier inn would have certainly been more luxurious. The mattress was piss stained with holes in it - see photos. The staff said this was normal...that we could not expect them to have new mattresses. At the price they charge, the least I expect is a...

We were married at Ockenden Manor five years ago and were looking forward to our Anniversary stay. I imagine lots of people were celebrating something special, but our Anniversary was mentioned on booking and on arrival.

Had such a great stay. The food and service were faultless. Had a beautiful room too. Would recommend to anyone for a special occasion as it is pricey but well worth every penny! The restaurant and dinner was the highlight of our stay

My friend and I went for a one night spa break at Ockenden manor and overall we had a very nice and relaxing break. We stayed in the Alex room which is in the main house. The room was very clean and decorated in a typical English quaint way. There were fresh cookies in the room when we arrived which...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ockenden Manor is a charming and tranquil Elizabethan Manor House tucked away in Cuckfield, one of the prettiest Tudor villages in England. With its history and character, elegant sitting room warmed by a roaring log fire and cosy, wood panelled bar, it's a wonderful place to escape to and yet it is just an hour from London and 20 minutes drive from Gatwick. The hotel is set in nine acres of peaceful gardens and parkland with views across the West Sussex countryside to the South Downs and some of the great gardens and stately homes of Sussex and Kent are within easy reach. ... more   less
