The great instrument of good is the imaginationPercy Shelley
A five star luxury spa hotel in East Sussex that once held connections to the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, Alexander House is a fusion of luxury styles brought together through exemplary hospitality.
Walk through the doors of the country house hotel and you will be led to sumptuous rooms and suites, decorated in contemporary style. Nonetheless, it befits the 17th century property’s history. Referencing the location’s presence on a Roman road, the spa has a neoclassical look that exudes decadence.
It is a destination favoured by celebrities for its sense of privacy and discretion, by couples for its intrinsic romance, and by those looking to spend quality time with friends for its sheer ability to make you feel indulged.
A feast for the senses and with a real spirit of occasion, all accommodation at Alexander House Hotel brings its own unique qualities to your stay. Rooms and suites are contemporary and stylish, bringing together carefully chosen natural hues with flashes of rich colour.
Freestanding baths in many of the suites allow two to soak in style. The brand new Cedar Lodge Suites within the grounds provide a superb amount of space, from the Garden Suites with their own terraces, to the Duplex Master Suite set over two floors.
For those looking to really make themselves at home, there is also the option to stay in The Gatehouse, a fully serviced luxury apartment catering for up to four people at the edge of the 120 acre estate.
Home to two award-winning restaurants, and experts in the fine art of a delicious afternoon tea, Alexander House Hotel does food with style and sophistication.
Tuck into Eggs Benedict or a stack of pancakes for brunch and lunch on home-grown favourites at Reflections (holder of two AA Rosettes).
Then start your evening in the 1608 Champagne Bar, referencing the history of the estate, before dressing up for fine dining in the blue and grey haven that is AG’s Restaurant.
The Grecian-style interiors and water-based therapies of the Utopia Spa attract guests from around the world. A lesson in indulgence, it is an adult-only space with facilities for working out, but predominantly it’s about an irresistible pull to wind down instead.
While it is a superbly romantic spa and hotel, the spa also has 25 treatment rooms which make it ideal for groups of friends looking to celebrate a special occasion or enjoy indulgent quality time together.
Supplied with fluffy white robes and slippers, you’re treated like a star from the moment you walk in the door.
Surrounded by 120 acres of grounds and gardens, Alexander House Hotel sits on a historic estate. Easy to access from London, it feels a million miles away. So much of its appeal is a total sense of escapism for short stays and weekends without fuss to anyone looking for a spa break in the South of England.
A luxurious experience that’s perfect for grown up quality time together. Couples should look at one of the rooms or suites in the main hotel or in the Duplex Master Suite, while groups of friends can have an exceptional experience at The Gatehouse set within the grounds.
• Stroll along one of the trekking trails in the grounds or borrow a mountain bikes to explore.
• Have Champagne in 1608 before dinner in AG’s Restaurant – holder of three AA Rosettes.
• If your visiting for a proposal or special occasion, enlist the support of the hotel. Rose petals on the bed perhaps, or chocolate-dipped strawberries and Champagne.
