A five-star country hotel with an award-winning spa and gourmet restaurant - includes breakfast and dinner options

Named at the Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence 2017 as the 'Best hotel with spa' (formerly the 'Best hotel for romance' in 2015) and voted the best spa for romance at the SpaFinder Readers' Choice Awards, the five-star Alexander House Hotel & Utopia Spa creates the perfect atmosphere for a few days of pampering and indulgence. What's more, the spa is now one of the Good Spa Guide's "Luxury" 5 Bubble Spas - one of only 13 in the country.

This 17th-century country estate in West Sussex lies an hour outside of London and has immaculate grounds, complete with a peaceful spa garden. With its sauna, steam room, gym and dramatic indoor spa pool with Roman-style pillars, this spa means business. Treatments range from classic to more specialised options. There's even a full-service beauty salon with a hairdresser and a nail technician.

If - God forbid - you want to try something a little more strenuous, the hotel offers guests use of wellies for a country walk, mountain bikes for a mini adventure, plus there's a tennis court and exercise classes on offer. The hotel has opted for the decadent approach to dining, rather than going down the super-healthy route. There's an unbridled afternoon tea menu, two chic restaurants and a champagne bar - and not a wheatgrass shot in sight.

If all that great food and relaxation has made you sleepy, slip into your bathrobe and nap on your Egyptian cotton sheets. The hotel scored a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Good to know

Please be aware that the spa is only available to guests aged 18 and above. Please pre-book any treatments directly with the hotel prior to arrival.

Dining


When it comes to dining, think rich flavours and locally sourced ingredients rather than saintly health foods. Choose between two delectable gourmet restaurants and a truly English afternoon tea menu, offering home-baked scones, pastries, cakes, finger sandwiches, tea and thick clotted cream.

AG's Restaurant is a gourmet, three AA Rosette-awarded delight with imaginative food and artistic presentation. Expect dishes like halibut fillet with squid ink puree, guinea fowl breast with truffle pomme mousseline, and braised pig cheek with apricots. Desserts are just as adventurous, with delicacies like passionfruit parfait with caramelised white chocolate sorbet, and lemon verbena panna cotta with elderflower and peach sorbet. Alongside boasting its very own champagne bar, Reflections Restaurant is a modern brasserie serving bistro classics and light snacks.

Spa


This award-winning Utopia Spa has quite a setting. Its dramatic indoor pool is framed by Roman-style pillars, its spa rooms are tranquil hideaways and there's even a peaceful spa garden. Voted the best spa for romance by the SpaFinder Readers Choice Awards 2012, this is a quiet and softly lit retreat, complete with bubble tubs, saunas and steam areas.

You can book a huge range of specialised and holistic treatments, which include facials, body treatments, aromatherapy, pregnancy treatments and Ila treatments. There's also a full-service salon where you can get your hair cut and your nails done, plus a gym and fitness studio.

Please be aware that spa access is chargeable, unless you have booked a treatment as a hotel guest. The spa is only available to guests aged 18 and above. Please pre-book any treatments directly with the hotel prior to arrival.

Location


Set in a historic country estate within 170 acres of pretty gardens, this peaceful spa hotel is close to the traditional village of Turners Hill in West Sussex. The hotel is just a short drive from Gatwick Airport, yet is surrounded on all sides by glorious countryside. The hotel offers the use of mountain bikes throughout your stay, so you can explore the surrounding rural landscape. You can also borrow wellies and hit the designated trekking trail within the grounds.
