Buxted Park Hotel in East Sussex also has a rich royal history. The present house was built almost 300 years ago by Thomas Medley, whose family had been keepers of the Privy Purse in the reign of Henry VIII.

Ionides and his wife were good friends of King George V and Queen Mary, who frequently visited the house for entertainment.
