My daughter and I just spent 1 night here for a spa break. It was wonderful - lovely surroundings, elegant and comfortable accommodation, super food, quiet, peaceful, relaxing, friendly and attentive staff. The spa is great too - not huge but very attractive and, again, the staff were wonderful - especially when my daughter became unwell towards the end of... More

Me and my husband went here for traditional afternoon cream teas, and was warmly welcomed. The food was lovely and lots of it. After tea we walked around the grounds and it was so peaceful and beautiful view.

A beautiful hotel set in wonderful grounds. The staff are so attentive yet unobtrusive. A short distance from London and Oxford. An idyllic get away in the heart of the country. The food is of the highest standard with excellent service.

I stayed at Hartwell for two nights. I got married at Waddesdon Manor so Hartwell seemed like the perfect fit.Its absolutely stunning. The service is impeccable. A perfect 5 star experience. We had our own Butler the whole time and he was absolutely brilliant. Anything we needed he would sort straight away. The house is very grand and very well... More

We stayed for three nights midweek for a special celebration. The staff were very attentive and welcoming. This is such an historic building and it is great that people like us can enjoy its splendour today. Quietly reading in the library or enjoying coffee and liqueurs (and homemade chocolates) there after dinner - quite the 'Downton' experience! The restaurant is... More

I live in Buckinghamshire so have never stayed here, but have had lunch many times. It is fairly expensive, but everything is of the highest quality - food, service and surroundings. The dining and reception rooms are furnished with high quality antiques and a few 'reproduction' pieces and paintings, all of which perfectly match and complement the style of the... More

If you are planning a special meal or sunday lunch look no further. What an excellent venue, for feeling as though you were special. The house and surrounding gardens are beautiful, and to be welcomed at the door and shown to a very comfortable but sophisticated drawing room for pre dinner drinks and canapés just starts your dining experience off...

A truly beautiful period house providing accommodation, relaxing spa, restaurant open for lunch, with grounds to walk around and a church nearby. Wonderful! We booked in for a special Sunday lunch celebration and were not disappointed. If anything could be improved it would be the service - unfortunately more training required for the international waiters on what condiments accompany which... More

I have stayed in the hotel for several years with work conferences - all have run smoothly thanks to the help from the special events team at Hartwell - and decided to return with my mum and our Jack Russell terrier, Jake. We stayed in a Hartwell Court Suite with a sitting room, large bedroom and access to a grassed... More

We enjoyed a wonderful short break here recently, great food, excellent room and perfect weather. The staff were attentive and friendly, the only negative was the steak sandwich at lunch was really tough but they quickly replaced it and proved excellent with their customer service.
