We attended a 60th birthday celebration at this wonderful hotel. Drinks on the terrace, sumptuous meal in a private room, followed by coffee & drinks in the Library. Food, service and surroundings were fabulous! A huge thank you to James, the assistant manager, for making the whole event memorable.

As a treat for a friend we had a treatment at the spa, walked round the grounds and had afternoon tea. Although very quiet on a Monday we had a relaxed time. The hotel is special inside but does not make enough of a statement with planting at the front of the hotel.

This was the third time we visited Hartwell House in the last 15 years. The grounds are very pretty, the gardens are beautifully maintained. The atmosphere is very peaceful and it is very easy to relax and de stress. The House has lots of lounges with squishy chairs and sofas with a good sprinkling of high hard chairs for older... More

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
