Stayed for one night. On arrival we were informed that we had an upgrade to the Queens room - oh my, what a wonderful treat. Never stayed in such a glorious, big room. If you want to relax, have peace and tranquility, enjoy the birds and wildlife, stroll around gardens, admire the amazing trees, eat top class food and respect... More

Had a splendid surprise afternoon tea last weekend. We had the library to ourselves and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves! Mum said she fell in love with the house. The grounds are beautiful to walk around. Highly recommended for afternoon tea. You can look around the ground floor. We were shown round by the very nice and helpful Martin. Very memorable... More

We recently visited Hartwell House for an overnight spa break to celebrate a special birthday. From the moment you arrive to the time you leave you are treated to the highest level of service and indulgence. The house dates back to a time of elegance and sophistication and this is reflected in the quality of the surroundings and the silver... More

My wife and I celebrated our silver wedding anniversary with a three day stay at this charming hotel. We had a handsome room with a lovely view. The lounges, library and dining room in this historic building are magnificent. The chefs menu was excellent. Staff are always available courteous and helpful. We never left during our stay at Hartwell House... More

Fabulous place for small groups, meetings, team building, private dinner & overnight. My group of 18 delegates were looked after with top expertise, the Chef gave special attention to all their dietary requirements (and some were particularly complicated). Our team activity moved the group around the various meeting spaces to suit the complexity of the logistics & timings. Great food,... More

My family and I had a faultless experience in July 2014 when we booked for afternoon tea at Hartwell House. The service was exemplary, the food divine and the house itself an incredible slice of history and beauty. Although our visit this May Bank Holiday was lovely also, we felt the service was somewhat lacking. We were informed on our... More

I recently a lovely weekend at Hartwell with my girlfriend. Faded elegance is probably a fair description of the house but that is not meant as a detraction in that everything was spotlessly clean. Really enjoyed the grounds and relaxing in the public rooms. I thought the staff were very friendly and attentive with the only downside to the stay... More

Over the past year or two I have enjoyed some half a dozen luncheon parties at Hartwell House. On each occasion I have found the food outstanding in quality and - for such quality - very reasonable in price. Lounging in the various stately rooms to enjoy an after lunch coffee has been an added bonus: Not to mention the... More

Isn't rate this hotel too highly. Ok it starts with an absolutely beautiful old building in a stunning location. The welcome and service on arrival was spot on as the porter took our bags to our rooms while a colleague escorted us to the restaurant - we were running a little late for dinner. After dinner they insisted in showing... More

You have the filing to be projected back in the past and you are the Master of the castle. Service excellent. Location fantastic. Food outstanding. The only attention if you are going with a prepaid voucher or you pay all in advance make it clear what is included and what is not included to avoid unwanted surprises.
