Wanted somewhere special to celebrate my husband's 80th birthday and we couldn't have chosen better. Canapes and aperitifs in the library, followed by a wonderful lunch overlooking the garden - just perfect. Good service and a complimentary little cake, complete with candle, made his day.

We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful food, exceptional service and the experience of being at Cliveden House. After sunset, the house was truly magical and breakfast in the main dining room, overlooking the National Trust grounds, was the perfect end to our stay. Our room was equally impressive and had a private terrace with a view of the outdoor swimming pool... More

Ok maybe you would expect that from an older hotel. But it is a Relais and Chateaux afterall. We stayed one night and that was enough. It is obviously quite expensive but compared to the type of room you could get in central London, its way above market for what you get. The rooms are dated. There is no air... More

What a shame we turned out not to be the style of property you prefer. We are very sorry you were disappointed we never like to learn this is the case. Cliveden will never be contemporary but we are in the middle of restoring and refurbishing the house at the moment, so I hope you might return one day to... More

I phoned the hotel twice today (20th Oct) re trying to book The taste of Cliveden deal. Was told twice by reception that reservations were busy and I would be contacted today at least by 9pm when they closed! As to yet nothing, not even from reception! a courtesy call was obviously out of order? Maybe they are that poor... More

My husband's best friend treated us to lunch here as a birthday surprise. Cliveden is a wonderful country house and the superb restaurant overlooks the amazing gardens. We had an absolutely wonderful 4 hour lunch, with discreet, excellent service. I will definitely return, even if we have to pay!

The room and the ambiance of the hotel are faultless - but the staff with the exception of one excellent wine waiter were truly terrible. For a hotel of this standard I was shocked at how badly they were trained to deal with guests very basic needs. There was confusion over a spa day which had been booked and paid... More

I loved this hotel and will definitely be back. Our suite was very spacious and beautiful, just like the rest of the house. Really have nothing to fault - great food, great service, and great estate. I would definitely recommend Cliveden for special occasions and weekend trips - it's relaxing and enchanting, and yet so easy to get to. I... More

Well if we could tempt you to return for Christmas that would be just wonderful The house is magical at that time of year, the Christmas tree reaches all the way to the ceiling in the Great Hall. The food is a real feature and the guests and team all have a happy time. I have been reading up about... More

Since Cliveden re-designed their restaurant I have visited a number of times including my recent business annual luncheon for my manufacturers ... In fact I can't keep away .... it is one of my favourite restaurants in Berkshire/South of England ... The food/service/ambience/gardens are all 5 star ... The positive changes that have been made to the hotel/grounds/restaurant etc are... More

Booked a Spa Day with 3 friends at Cliveden for a birthday treat. It far exceeded our expectations - the house and grounds are stunning and the staff were wonderful (not just at the spa but at the house/hotel too) making it a memorable day. Would definitely recommend it for a special treat. Can't wait to return.

Thank you for your recommendation of our Spa. It is something of a hidden gem tucked away behind the garden wall, In the peaceful setting of the Cliveden Estate. We really do hope you and your friends will repeat your Spa day again before too long. Thank you again for your review. Kind regards Sue Williams More
