We stayed at Chilston for my husband's birthday, having visited Buxted Park and enjoyed it so much. The hotel is lovely and we were welcomed warmly by the reception staff. Our room was quite acceptable but a little dark and drab despite two windows, the bed was very comfortable but minus any sort of headboard (pillows up against the wall) which was quite surprising for a hotel of this standard. Everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained however.
The highlight of our stay was our meal, the food was excellent, every course delicious and cooked to perfection. Unfortunately our pre dinner glass of wine, canapes and petit fours did not materialise (were included in price). Breakfast in our room was ok, couple of mistakes with the order and very hard boiled eggs when soft were requested. It was a pity the quality did not match the previous night's dinner.
The motorway is very close by but it did not disturb us even though we had a room facing towards it. I slept fine but my husband was woken from 5.30am by doors banging, no idea who but continued for quite some time! These are small gripes however for a lovely hotel which we would happily return to, choosing a different room next time (we had Carousel) perhaps to the rear of the hotel. We will certainly use the restaurant again as the meal was absolutely delicious.
