The BEST WESTERN Birch Hotel is an independent hotel located in the heart of Mid Sussex in the town of Haywards Heath. The main building was constructed in 1874 as a country house and still retains many of its original features including the oak-panelled lounge and the Victorian staircase. An extension was added in 1980 and over recent years there has been extensive refurbishment of the entire hotel.
