It was with great anticipation that we arrived at Cliveden House for three nights at the conclusion of our stay in UK. It's rural historical location near Heathrow being a plus before our long haul flight. On the most part it met our expectations due to its unique setting, grand historical accommodation and the beautiful weather which afforded full use... More

I booked Cliveden for a very special occasion - to propose to me intended wife. I booked a "superior suite" - almost £1,000 per night, so it is fair to say my expectations were very high. As it happens, we were a bit disappointed. Cliveden is perfectly adequate if stacked alongside large international chain hotels, but falls very short in... More

we had a really delicious lunch here for my birthday. Very well presented and very good tasting food. A good choice of courses and menu types. Should you choose, the set lunch menu is excellent value. The staff are very courteous and friendly and do a very good job. Whilst, as mentioned by reviewers previously, that renovation work is going... More

We spent a very wonderful anniversary here. We upgraded our room, to a beautiful deluxe double, which was quite the best hotel room I have ever seen or experienced. We took dinner in the restaurant, which was good, not exceptional, but the all round experience was memorable. It is a fabulous way to spoil yourself, yes spending in excess of... More

We have wanted to stay at Cliveden for some time but somehow there has never been the opportunity, although we have visited the grounds a few times. However, we've just returned from the most lovely stay over New Year and we are so glad we chose this hotel for the celebration. The welcome is warm and friendly and somehow wraps... More

This Hotel is wonderful and we feel very privileged to have stayed here. The rooms are excellent, as are all the staff, without exception. Ryan and Gabriella deserve a special mention as to me they were just perfect hosts. Thank you so much for an amazing stay - we will be back for more of the same.

Since 2002 my wife and I have been guests at Cliveden House several times. Having celebrated Christmas at Cliveden on four occasions, this year (2014) we decided to see 2015 in at the house. We were not disappointed. Chef Andre Garrett seems to have achieved a good balance between his style of cooking and the requirements of a busy 5-star... More

My wife and I wanted a Christmas to remember for many years to come. Cliveden definately fulfils that requirement. From the moment we arrived everyone made us feel welcome and could not do enough to ensure we enjoyed our time without feeling smothered by attention. The food was superb, portions sizes meant we could enjoy the entire meal without feeling... More

It was great to meet you and your wife over the Christmas break and I really enjoyed reading your review and to learn that you left having had a very special time. Good luck with the new house and the project ahead of you. "T E Laurence" will be waiting for you on your return. Kind regards Sue W More

The approach to Cliveden is stunning, as is the building itself. Afternoon Tea is served in the main hall and surrounding rooms. The (choice) of tea is served in wide plain cups, which means the tea gets cold very quickly. The cake stand (which should be the show piece) is again nothing special - just very plain, utility white crockery.... More

To Cliveden for lunch whilst returning home after the Christmas break. Interesting to hear of the continuing plans for the property which may make a return visit a good idea. Certainly not fully on top form if it wants to be compared with great European hotels. Currently a mix of the faded and the wonderfully restored and conserved. Service is... More

Thank you for your kind comments and the not so good as these will give us areas to focus on. We are a mix of the faded and the refurbishes and conserved and actually that is probably as Cliveden will always be as she is a great age. Service needs to be consistently good though and we will continue to... More
