East Sussex is one of the Home Counties' hidden secrets, it’s got beautiful countryside, charming towns and villages, and the coastline's not too shabby either, dotted with charming old resorts perfect for taking the sea air and enjoying a relaxing soak. Accommodation in the region is excellent and varied with plenty of country house hotels, smart guesthouses and wonderful old coaching inns. But hotels with hot tubs in East Sussex are slightly harder to find!
There are a number of East Sussex hotels promising to rejuvenate you. Some hotels boast spas and saunas, like Brighton’s glorious Grand Hotel, with its traditional elegance and sea views. And some boast attractively designed outdoor pools, like Old Whyly, a charming listed manor house in Lewes. While some just offer the perfect romantic refuge on the coast, like the Zanzibar International Hotel in St Leonards on Sea, where some rooms feature spa baths for two. But unfortunately none of our Guru’s favourite hotels offer private hot tubs.
But, there are two contenders for the Hotel Guru’s best hotels with hot tubs in East Sussex, The Grand Hotel, Eastbourne with its choice of indoor and outdoor pools, range of spa treatments and award winning restaurant, and the Ashdown Park Hotel in East Grinstead, which is an exquisite country house hotel in the Ashdown Forest surrounded by acres of parkland and a golf course and tennis courts.
