Our trip to The Felbridge Hotel and Spa started with an easy train journey, avoiding the
dreaded M25, that took us to East Grinstead, just 10 minutes taxi ride from our destination.

This stylish, modern hotel has benefited recently from a £5.5m refurbishment and is
exceptionally convenient, being close to both the M25 and only 10 minutes from Gatwick Airport.

A smooth check in, helped by efficient and knowledgeable staff, led us to our junior suite that was spacious, with tasteful décor and many additional touches, including a full range of Elemis products and soft towels in the large bathroom.

Following cocktails in the Q bar, we enjoyed dinner in the intimate 2 AA Rosette Anise restaurant. It deserves its ‘Best Eating Experience in Sussex’ award, offering a range of innovative, well presented and imaginative dishes to please discerning diners.

We slept well in the exceptionally comfortable suite and enjoyed a leisurely buffet
breakfast in the Bay Tree restaurant. Before departure, we partook of a treatment in the Chakra Spa. An oasis of calm, it offers the opportunity to fully relax and switch off. A toning back, shoulder and neck massage began the session, after which we enjoyed the rest of the facilities, including steam and sauna baths and a swim that left us refreshed for our return journey to London.
