What a beautiful hotel. Fabulously maintained however their were cobwebs in our room around the wall lights! Not what you expect for the cost of the room £350 for the 1 night. Spa was a good experience however the cafe staff were very slow to take our order having seated us. Evening meal was beautiful and the pianist just finished... More

We are really pleased that these guests liked our beautiful hotel. Really sorry about the cobweb on the lampshade and the slow breakfast when everybody had arrived at once towards the end of service on Sunday morning. More

In all the years I have been travelling for both business and pleasure, I have never been treated so poorly by the a waiter at breakfast. Seating was delayed while others were seated before me and served. Ordering coffee was a 20 minute wait and when I complained about the wait time, and the fact that the coffee was no... More

Hartwell, Manager at Hartwell House, responded to this review

This reviewer's behaviour at breakfast was unacceptable and uncomfortable for our other guests who commented on it, as well as our staff. It was considered load and rude, whilst our staff remained calm. We are pleased that the guests enjoyed their breakfast in the Spa Café, and could not fault the staff there. More

Took my niece for her 9th birthday and what a treat for us both! Staff we're friendly and helpful. The house, grounds and tea rooms are stunning. My niece said it was incredible! Afternoon tea wasn't fancy and fiddly like posh hotels in London but simple, delicious and plentiful. Scones were amazing. Hot chocolate was a success too. Great value... More

I first came here several years ago to attend a birthday lunch. On the recent occasion it was to join friends on their after Christmas 'chill out'. As we totalled some 14 in number the hotel had set aside a private dining room for our two night stay and provided ample seating for our party in the magnificent library. All... More

We stayed overnight for my birthday. The rooms are just phenomenal- never stayed in any other like that before! We enjoyed the service we got, especially from james. All of the staff were friendly and intent.

A superb authentic English Country House. It felt like staying in Downton Abbey or Gosford Park, only this is the real thing. Furnished with exquisite antiques throughout the public rooms and the bedrooms. We stayed two nights in one of the second floor rooms in the main house, with a view over the front lawns and lake. The room was... More

We got an afternoon tea voucher for my dad as he had been before and liked the service and the place. O dear not so good this time. Service slow. Food not up to standard and an un-happy dad? I did ring and spoke to a manager who was sorry to hear what had happened but there was no follow... More

Our son Timothy, invited us to lunch at your Hotel yesterday. Upon arrival my wife and myself were unsure how to access the Hotel as the car park, being at the top of a gradient, made it almost impossible for me to access the Hotel easily as I suffer from a severe respiratory condition that necessitates my use of portable...

From the moment we stepped through the door we felt like treasured guests. A log fire was burning, there was a huge Christmas tree and everywhere was warm and inviting. We have stayed before and were not disappointed. We spent time in the spa which was beautiful. Luckily it was good weather as there is a walk from the main... More
