I stayed at The Villiers Hotel for one night. Was made to feel very welcome. The room was warm and cozy and very tastefully decorated. I was staying on my own and so ordered a Room Service evening meal. It arrived very quickly beautifully laid out on a tray with linen napkins. The food was hot and extremely good. I... More

Our arrival was greeted by friendly helpful reception. Our room was large very clean and comfortable and my only comment would be that the bathroom could do with updating. We ate in the restaurant on our first night and food was excellent tho the starter could of been hotter! Overall an excellent stay

For a second time in two years my wife and I, together with some close friends, welcomed in the New Year at Villiers Hotel. This a very much a bespoke hotel which has a ballroom located in the Old Buckingham Town Hall just opposite the hotel. We attended a dinner dance in the Ballroom and also booked two rooms at...

We went for lunch as a foursome recently and chose from the Seasonal Christmas lunch menu which was the same as the Market Lunch menu for some reason at £25 for three courses (£19.95 for two). Check it out on the website. What attracted us was the 2 star AA rosette award for dining. Food was good, presented well and... More

We decided to return to Buckingham after leaving the town 13 years ago and were pleased to see the Villiers going strong. We were kindly given an upgrade as it was our wedding anniversary and my birthday so spent our 3 nights in a suite over looking the courtyard. The staff were very friendly and our room was clean. We... More

We stayed over for a xmas party for the company my wife works for. The room was very large so good from that point of view however it was extremely tired and not clean. The bath was fairly disgusting with filthy mastic and dirty shower curtain also the ceiling was mouldy. The radiator was also very rusty and looked like... More

Are you sure you stayed with us? The hotel is spotless (see previous review) and would not achieve its Tripadvisor or AA Ratings if it was as you describe. More

My wife and I stayed on a Saturday to celebrate an anniversary. The hotel was busy ,particularly with family groups . The arrival and parking was fine, with the hotel having its own parking in the centre of town. The room was spacious and light, even if the décor was a little tired. We had booked for the evening meal... More

You mentioned the only different dish your wife ate to yourself was the Chicken Parfait. As you mention the hotel was very busy on Saturday;... More

This is an OK hotel, rooms are wrapped around a courtyard, and on variable levels. Would hate to try to find the way out in an emergency. I think the issue with hotels, because of their long, unsociable hours, is that they employ immigrants, who may work hard and long hours, but they're customer service is COLD, and that's what...

Thank you taking the time to write your subjective review about your experience of Hotel staff in general. I was saddened to read that you found the Villiers' Team to be “cold”; this is not usually the case, as you will see from previous Tripadvisor Reviews. I am so sorry that we did not meet up to your expectations. Jean... More

We chose to stay in Villiers following reviews in Trip Advisor and visiting the hotel's website. Regrettably reality was somewhat different. We were greeted by polite and cheerful staff and given keys to room 102. The room decor was tired, somewhat shabby and in bad need of renovation. Lighting was poor. The bathroom was in a more decrepit state, sealant... More

I was saddened to read your disappointment with your recent stay. The points you raise I will be investigating and will take action where required.. We are currently undergoing the next phase of a refurbishment programme. I can only apologise, that due to the hotel being so busy, you were allocated a room that has not as yet undergone refurbishment... More
