This is how National Trust properties should all be ! Our room looked out over the outdoor swimming pool where Christine Keeler's naked frolics started a chain of events that brought down the government in the 1960s. Service is slick - our bags got to the room before we did. Breakfast looking out over the parterre in full bloom is... More

My husband and I stayed here for a birthday treat and our final getaway before parenthood. It was amazing! The beautiful weather helped- we sunbathed and swam in the outdoor pool! Our room was upgraded and was superb- we didn't even get a chance to watch tv in the bath. We had afternoon tea and dinner in the club house-... More

Enjoyed a brief overnight stay after securing a room at a bargain rate via Secret Escapes. In advance of stay we were sent a detailed email to check if we had any special requirements. Service was exceptional from the moment we parked on the drive (with our bags being collected from us immediately) and throughout our stay. Everyone was friendly,... More

Looking for a "Downton Abbey" like experience? The 376 acre estate's a quick 20 minute drive to Heathrow. You'll take a walk back in time and live amongst the antiquities of the last century. As a travel agent I visit many luxury properties around the world. I recommend the Cliveden to my all clients who visit the United Kingdom. The... More

As a travel professional your comments as especially appreciated so thank you for posting your review. I think so few folks realize just how close to the airport we are. As one guest put it, you wouldn't wish to turn right on a plane so why turn right to London when you land. Turn left and you can be at... More

I thought this hotel was going to be snooty but it's so not. The staff are incredibly friendly & charming - every single one of them we meet which is unusual in a hotel - nothing is too much trouble. The pools & spa area are relaxing & private in a walled garden area. Of the two restaurants the food... More

24 hours away from the stresses of the world! We have visited Cliveden often for the gardens, but only stayed the night once before and just like last time we felt like house guests at an incredible home with perfect hosts. It is luxury in a true sense because it is not over stated and yet everything is beautiful. We... More
