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! We took the Summer private cruise and boy what fun. The picnic box washed down with Taittinger was superb. Ken the skipper was terrific company telling... More

Just a wonderful place to visit. Enjoyed the Thames riverboat picnic with Ken the skipper. Absolutely lovely food. We had a room overlooking the pool this time but always prefer the main house. It's always such a nice treat to stay here one of the nicest hotels in England. The staff are a credit, well done I can't wait to... More

My friend got married there on Friday and she gave me the honour to be her bridesmaid. The front building it is just magnificent. The entire building is very charming. Unfortunately I didn't have the chance to enjoy the park but I plan to come back with my partner and family. We had musicians playing at the ceremony and at... More

We had Sunday luncheon to celebrate my wife's birthday together with four close friends. From the moment we pulled up to the hotel entrance until the moment we departed it was a magnificent and most memorable experience. The attention to detail was amazing, the food was stunning (the beef was the nicest my wife had ever had), all of the... More

Our stay at Cliveden House this weekend was exceptional and I need pay particular credit to all the staff who made this possible. The experience from booking (Lydia), the boat trip (Ken), the welcome at the door to the waiters, sommelier and just about everyone we came into contact with were outstanding – unfortunately I cannot name them all. The... More

Popped into Cliveden House to check it out as a potential wedding venue. On arrival we hesitated for a few minutes to decide where to start our walk - a young guy who's name we later found out was Tony came towards us from the hotel restaurant near the spa area. He asked us if we needed any help and... More

The building and setting are unbeatable. Redecorating started last year and is absolutely superb. Nothing of the ambience has been lost, just a wonderful update in delicate blues, greens, lavender, silver and gold. The Astors would not be disappointed and neither were we. The dining room has improved immensely. Food is good, not exceptional yet, but definitely heading in the... More

It is a delight to know we are one of your favourite hotels to visit, we promise never to take that for granted and will keep up with the "to do" list. I often wonder what the past generations of Astor's and indeed current make of the interior now. As we set about the refurbishment we have in our minds... More

The new owners have lifted Cliveden to another level. We have been visiting over the years but this was our first visit under the current ownership. The improvements are everywhere: staff, food, ambience. It was slightly tired and faded before but not now. The staff are extraordinarily enthusiastic, friendly and welcoming. We had a very, very good dinner in the... More

So delighted you could see a distinct improvement in the house presentation and team. We took over just two years ago and have enjoyed setting this Grand Old Dame back on the right track. Thank you for your very kind review and we hope to meet you again before too long. Kind regards Sue W More

Once you've found the entrance to Cliveden you know you are in for a treat as you pass the fountain and start up the main driveway. What a stunning approach. With a warm welcome we were shown our rooms in the stable block. These rooms hadn't been refurbished and are apparently on the list to be done this coming winter.... More
