Set in a quiet corner of West Sussex and presiding over 120 acres of gardens, the five-star Alexander House Hotel and Utopia Spa allures visitors with spa facilities, individually designed rooms and chic eateries. The nearby town of Crawley boasts historic shop-strewn streets and the 400-acre Tilgate Park with a golf course, lakes and bridleways for long leisurely walks.
Dating back to the 17th century, this country house hotel boasts individually styled bedrooms featuring bespoke furniture, Vi-Spring king-sized bed or twin beds, flat-screen TVs, workstations and en suite bathrooms with bathtubs and separate showers.
The Reflections Restaurant serves an array of dishes with an emphasis on locally sourced produce in a relaxed environment, while AG’s Restaurant presents a more formal affair.
Relaxing moments can be spent at Utopia Spa, which includes a swimming pool, bubble tub, sauna and steam room, as well as a fully equipped gym and fitness studio, complemented by the indulgent body and skin care treatments.
Groupon’s Guide To West Sussex
Packed with sleepy villages and coastal scenery, West Sussex is a popular getaway for travellers seeking countryside rambles, heritage sites or simply a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
History buffs may indulge in a trip to the village of Amberley, where a 12th-century castle awaits to be explored, or head to the archaeological site of Fishbourne Palace, where 1st-century mosaics and Roman architecture may be admired. Days may also be spent browsing for antiques or enjoying a cup of tea at a restaurant or cafe.
