We booked afternoon tea at the Cliveden for my mum's birthday treat. I booked over email and received a really rapid response. Staff were more than happy to accommodate when i had to add two late comers to the booking. When we arrived we were met with amazing service from the offset. We were given our own private dining room... More

Went for afternoon tea. Lovely food and wonderful surroundings. As we arrived early the young man serving us had time to tell us the history of Cleveden and also showed my husband around . There is a lot of work being carried out and the furniture has been re-upholstered and new carpets laid. The young man gave us so much... More

We stayed in Spring Cottage for 2 nights. What an amazing place right by the river with lovely walks around. The food and service at the hotel were first class, the staff were very attentive nothing was too much trouble. The recreation facilities are excellent as well with a good sized indoor and heated outdoor pools which cater well for... More

My husband and I got married at Cliveden house last August and returned for a night last week. There are simply no words that truly do justice to this place and the outstanding service we encountered. From the warm welcome that made us feel like a family member that was finally back home, to the beautiful spa, the rooms and... More

We just came back from a weekend at Cliveden which we had been looking forward to; we wanted a relaxing break and it was our first stay in the English countryside. Did it live up to expectations? yes & no. The hotel part certainly did. Even though we knew there was restoration work being carried out (the scaffolding does mess... More

My partner and I enjoyed the most amazing Valentines day lunch yesterday and I just wanted to thank Mr Andre Garrett and his team and all the front of house staff for making it so perfect.

This is a stunning location despite the scaffolding in situ when we stayed, although it would have been good to have that pointed out to us when booking. The staff on arrival were second to none and our room really delightful with an excellent gas fire in the room. We had a late very overpriced lunch at the brassserie type... More

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

That we did not quite hit the mark in all areas for you is naturally disappointing to hear and we learn from your comments, thank you.

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.
