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.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Hartwell House where we booked a double bedroom with dinner (£52 allowance per evening). It was a little more expensive a break than we would normally choose but I can honestly say it was absolutely worth it. I highly recommend staying here! We were upgraded to a four poster room...

The service from all the staff was excellent. we upgraded for dinner to the 26th Hartwell house anniversay diinerwhich was fautless in its execution and flavour.... More

I stayed 2 nights in the main Hotel back in Feb and I must say I thought it is not quite up to scratch for the room price. The furniture all seemed very uncomfortable in the downstairs rooms ( you sunk in with your knees up to your ears) and the library room was very drab. The naff 90s "period... More

Hartwell, Manager at Hartwell House, responded to this review

Hartwell House a grade1 listed property of the National Trust is decorated in period with regard to furniture, pictures and soft furnishings. It is not redolent of any period of the 20th century, mntenance is of a high standard as is service. As a rule of thumb guide think Downton Abbey. More

I stayed here for one night with my girlfriend t for a relaxing getaway. The experience from start to end was exceptional; staff were friendly and approachable (special mention to the porter that showed us to our room), the room was amazing and food was great. A nice touch in the evening was being shown to one of the drawing... More
