We stayed in the Tower Suite on the 2nd floor, but no problem lugging our cases up as there is a dinky little lift that easily transports two people and luggage. You enter the suite into its own hall with the sitting room to the right and the bedroom and bathroom on the left. All is tastefully decorated with very...

My wife and I enjoyed our wonderful wedding at Horsted Place 10 years ago (which is still brought up and hailed by friends and relatives). We were remembered when we returned this past November for our tin anniversary, our suite had been upgraded and we felt very welcome. We always enjoy the civilised, relaxed atmosphere of Horsted place and cocktails...

We chose Horsted Place as our wedding and reception venue after visiting many other local sites.

My husband and I had a very special evening at Horsted Place on a Saturday to celebrate my birthday. The food was delicious - especially the scallops starter and beef main course! The service was excellent too. We really enjoyed sitting by the fire listening to the pianist with our pre-dinner drinks. We're looking forward to visiting again soon!

I was, & am still intrigued by the many 5 star reviews on this site. The hotel, its setting, the staff, & the food are all lovely,.. but the decor & furnishings are not (in my opinion).

It had been almost 25 years to the day since I last visited Horsted Place and it was remarkable to discover that nothing had changed except for the fact that there is now a meeting room where an indoor swimming pool used to be.
