It's a shame that what used to be the most spectacular view of the house, as one turns the corner, by the fountain of love, is now marred by mases of cars parking all over the front drive. In the old days, and I have been going to Cliveden for years, only one or two cars were parked outside and... More

We do recall on the day of your visit the meadows on the Estate that the National Trust usually use for the public to park on, were water logged, so they had no option but to use the Grand Avenue as an alternative. What you saw was an extreme scenario, that said it is true to say both the House... More

We went for one night, but it was probably the best night we have had anywhere. My son will regret not being around to have joined the trip as he missed the kind and deeply pleasant treatment the four of us received from all at Cliveden. In quick summary, our experience and recommendation is as follows, arrive at 4pm, straight... More

I will second that; to anyone reading this review these guests certainly knew how to make the very most of their stay with us. I would like to thank them for their recommendations and for summing us up so well in only a brief review. I hope we have crept into their hearts permanently and that they re visit one... More

We stayed in Spring Cottage for a weekend to celebrate my sisters birthday. The whole experience was fabulous from start to finish. We decided to book Spring Cottage as opposed to rooms in the main house as we were a group of 5 adults and 2 children, aged 3 and 5 years old. It really was the most perfect solution... More

We remember you and your family well and are so delighted that you enjoyed our beautiful Spring Cottage. It is just such a magical spot by the river and tucked away from the world. Well nearly as there is always the added interest of the odd boat drifting past. Since your visit our boats are now back in the water... More

I had the good fortune of enjoying an afternoon tea with family and friends here. The food was superb, fresh, good quality ingredients and plentiful. There was a vast selection of teas available, and my Cliveden Blend was delightful. The service is impeccable and attentive. The property has recently gone under a major refurbishment, and they have managed to maintain... More

We visited Cliveden House for afternoon tea on 28 March with our family, including 2 year old grandson. We were provided with a private room overlooking the parterre which made for a very enjoyable environment. The food was excellent, more than we could eat - so we were able to take away the surplus. The service was very impressive, we... More

It is lovely to hear that you would like to visit again and that your experience was so much enjoyed. Even more special to hear your waiter was on good form and able to share a joke or two. I am pleased to hear it when the team not only deliver an appropriate level of service but are also confident... More

The title says it all really, this place is just very classy. Service is on a par with the Ritz (there are staff everywhere), the suite was very comfortable, the grounds, building and décor were superb and the food was exceptional. We will return....can't wait!!

A wonderful return to Cliveden for my Mother's 90th birthday. All of our party greatly enjoyed our visit - Cliveden makes you feel like a guest in a rather grand friend's house, rather than just a hotel guest. Whilst the house and the rooms are wonderful (to say nothing of the amazing gardens and grounds) it is the staff that... More

We knew that we wanted to find this place in advance - Its almost as though that they do not want to be found. Poor signs and lack of direction along the road meant we had to back track several times to find "the hotel entrance". Once found though, the approach to the hotel is stunning - It was Sunday...

You would not be the first to highlight this as a problem and we are currently working with the highways and the National Trust to bring clarity as to how to find us. We like to think we are a hidden Gem, but not so hidden that you can not get to us. Thank you for all your kind words... More

My wife and I were at Cliveden for one night in March. The suite was the most sumptuous we have ever stayed in and throughout the staff treated us, and our two dogs, like royalty. Every need was anticipated; large cushions/beds, leads, bowls and food for our two daschshunds, related reading matter informing us about historical Cliveden, and every comfort... More
