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...

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 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

Hartwell House has the "Wow" factor in abundance - the scale, the history, the decor -and yet maintains a warm, welcoming, and very tranquil atmosphere. We found Hartwell House when looking for a country retreat for our company's annual social event. It needed to be easily accessible from across the country, and be able to provide private dining and spa... More

I cant than HH enough for making our stay so fabulous. The entire party had a wonderful time and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Everything I asked for was done with aplomb and the food was as usual, stunning. A true gem in the middle of the Bucks countryside.

Friends and ourselves thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hartwell House. An afternoon spent in the Spa, then a walk around the lake followed by a delicious three course meal in beautiful, relaxing and peaceful surroundings was just what we needed. Very attentive service in the restaurant both at dinner and breakfast. Looking forward to another visit.

I stayed for two nights in March '15; the first night with a friend and the second by myself. We arrived separately on the first evening and had a suite in the Hartwell Court, right by the spa, as the rooms in the main house don't accommodate dogs and I had mine with me. The suite was lovely- the decor... More

From the moment the doorman welcomed us into the house, we felt pampered throughout our 2 day stay. The service from all the staff was friendly, courteous and discreet with great attention to detail. We were impressed with our room, which was very comfortable. Breakfast and dinner were excellent, with special diets catered for. The 90 acres of grounds are... More
