From start to finish Cliveden House oozes opulence on the grandest scale. Your first impression is a breathtaking drive down the from the Fountains to the greeted by a stunning manor house reminding you of Downtown Abbey. The Staff were exceptionally helpful and welcoming and ensured we knew where everything was at the hotel on our stay. We were staying... More

I was beyond excitement at my forthcoming stay at Cliveden but my experience was mixed.... Firstly the Check In and Check Out process is beyond acceptability....I was glad I was not in a hurry or had a flight to catch....extremely chaotic, frustratingly slow and a lack of dynamism from the very inexperienced staff...all foreign who appeared to be grappling to...

Not so good, what a disappointment to receive your review, I am sorry that you left us having had a less than favourable experience. I am unable to trace what exactly your check in looked like so I am sorry that you thought this was less than smooth. I know you arrived before lunch for a 3pm check in so... More

The house has alot of history and periodic art to admire. The hotel was excellent and offered so so much in comfort and Luxury. The restaurant and the quality of food was spectacular.

We have just stayed at Cliveden House to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday (like many locals, he was born in the hospital that was once on the grounds, so it seemed fitting.) This grande dame of a hotel has many plus points: stunning landscapes, supremely comfortable beds, and of course, an incredible history. We loved lounging by the iconic pool,... More

And pull our socks up we will and we are certainly not settling for anything other than delivering at a five star level. As a senior team we all know what that should look like and we will use your feedback most constructively to help illustrate it further with the team. The fabric of the house is being worked on...

What a fabulous experience. We booked 2 rooms for a family birthday weekend celebration. We had a few problems finding the place even with trusty sat nav (not too well signposted) but the approach along the drive, after we found it was nothing short of spectacular - like stepping back in history or staring in our own version of Downton...

My husband and I visited beautiful Cliveden for a celebration weekend. The drive up to the outstanding building makes you feel as if you are an honoured guest of royalty but the atmosphere in the hotel is relaxed and very peaceful. We were greeted warmly by the porter on duty who introduced us to reception staff for the inevitable legalities.... More

A wonderful place with so much history and beautiful grounds, we had a relaxing walk around the rose gardens and water features and then back up the drive to the hotel. We wanted to have lunch and tea on the fantastically located terrace, so we went in to the house and were shown up. We said we wanted Tea &... More

My goodness, thank you for your very gracious review. I do apologise that the service was so inattentive. I really wished the team had paid attention and taken care of you.

What a very special setting. The house oozes history with paintings and photographs of famous residents and visitors. And the rooms are full of beautiful antiques and panelling. We came though for the afternoon tea and it surpassed expectations. Beautiful, freshly cut sandwiches, wonderful sausage rolls and a selection of scones with all the trimmings and plates of cakes.

We came to Cliveden house for the first time in June 2012 for Ascot. We left a little disappointed at the level of service, but above all at the quality of the food in the restaurant (breakfast and dinner). It was just not good. If we speak only about the hotel architecture and decor, it was outstanding. We were upgraded... More
