We went to the restaurant at Sanctum on the Green for a dinner with friends. We had visited for a nice lunch a few months ago and were impressed by the food. Again, we were not disappointed - the food was well presented, well cooked and above all else, full of flavour. One of our party did make a menu... More

Very disappointed with our room which was accessed down steps so a half basement. It was gloomy and unwelcoming, stuffy, small and ill thought out. I had to plug the hair dryer into the bedside table socket and fully stretch the cord in order to see in the one and only mirror on the back of the room door. The... More

We held our wedding ceremony and reception here at the end of May. The location and ambience are perfect for a celebration. The food (for a party of 90) was of the same excellent quality as when we have previously dined at Luke's in a small group. But, mostly importantly, the service from the staff was exceptional. Tina, Colin, Perry... More

We visited the sanctum after booking the tasting menu at the fat duck. Unfortunately the experience was not what we were expecting. The room was very noisy and we woken early by much noise from the kitchens. Breakfast was a total disaster with the wrong orders arriving twice, drinks forgotten multiple times. From ordering to breakfast being served was a... More

We have seen some polarised views of Sanctum on the Green on Tripadvisor, but must say that we did not recognise one iota of the negative comments we have seen.  On the contrary, our experience of the hotel, its staff, the service and the food was overwhelmingly positive.  Our review should probably be read as a review of their wedding...

If you're looking for a peaceful, relaxing treat, don't consider coming here. Our 2 nights' stay were a bitterly disappointing experience. But to start with the positives, our meal at Luke's was lovely, and they catered very well for a gluten-free diet. Our massages by Melissa and Kate were wonderful. The rest of our time was accompanied by a constant... More

We had such a lovely weekend at the Sanctum on the Green. It's in a lovely location tucked away behind a typical English country green. The gardens and pool are gorgeous and so relaxing. It felt like we were abroad lying by the pool soaking up the sun! The staff were so friendly and really helpful. Dinner in Luke's Kitchen... More

We recently stayed at the sanctum on the green and can only say how terrible an experience this was. Rooms are pokey for the price, breakfast was not done well, with no toast served on the full English and overcooked poached eggs. (Can't believe this has such great food reviews, although speaking to other guests I hear the evening food... More

This is our second visit here, and it really is home from home, with the super stylish rooms, that will have you sleeping soundly, to the quirky bar area and great choice of music whilst enjoying a great choice of drinks, enjoy amazing food we had lunch at Lukes Dining Room, just perfect and the breakfast was also spot on....

At last! A fabulous getaway for the kind of cool evenings you want to have in London but for whatever reason don't make it into town for....... Tucked away but so well worth the journey - beautiful location and a fabulous venue with great staff and great atmosphere - After a night at Box decided to retreat here instead of... More
