we were given a formal but friendly reception on arrival and sat in the splendid oak panelled hall until our table was ready, then shown through to our window table with a fine view over the terrace and lawns beyond. The service was friendly but discrete and first class, as was the food which was quite sufficient and delicious. There... More

We held our wedding ceremony here on cold winter's day in February. This quintessentially English historic venue was almost flawless besides the scaffolding on the restoration works at the back of the House -- but that was simply unlucky timing. It was an amazing experience all around, made possible by Emma, our wedding coordinator, who worked tirelessly to accommodate all... More

We had an enjoyable stay at this fabulous country house. We booked directly with the hotel and had a well appointed room in the main house overlooking the elegant frontage of the hotel. The gardens are amazing and we were given the best table in the house for afternoon tea - which is a must! The food in the restaurant... More

Today I had tea at Cliveden with three other school friends to mark special birthdays. The friend who had booked also lives locally and has eaten there many time before too. I was very disappointed with the average tea we received. Nothing was exciting at all. I love cakes but I never felt tempted to eat one. The nearest I... More

We checked in at 3pm and were delighted with the room, I had asked for a room with a balcony and was delighted with... More

Thank you for your very balanced review, highlighting the good and not so good. We will pick up your points and seek to iron out the imperfections.

I booked Cliveden as a surprise for my partner's birthday and it exceeded our expectations. It was on our must visit list and from the minute we drove up the breathtaking drive we were blown away. Magda on reception showed us to The Lord Astor suite which we had been upgraded to. She was very helpful and told us everything... More

I stayed here whilst on a business conference for 2 nights. The place is quite excellent in a traditional sort of way. The staff were professional and polite without being stuffy, the food (both breakfast and dinner) was first class and my suite (I had the Mountbatten Suite) was large a very well-appointed. I have no idea how much this... More

Our 4th stay at one of the best stays ever. The venue is legendary, the atmosphere professional and classy. The new lease owners have revived the fortunes of the epic building. Lady Astor approves!
