Best Western The Birch Hotel.

Homely character in Haywards Heath.

Best Western The Birch Hotel is ideally located on the outskirts of Haywards Heath, and in the heart of Mid-Sussex. With a bucket load of attractions nearby, not to mention the South Downs; time in this beautiful part of England will definitely be well spent!

Great road and rail links make the hotel (and Haywards Heath) a great base for family breaks and business trips, with lots to do (or not do) on a romantic weekend as well. Whether you're toddling off with the kids or treating that special someone to a long-overdue getaway, you can wrap yourself in a big cosy blanket of tranquility back at the hotel itself - while you take in the classic period features, comfortable rooms and excellent facilities.
